As WP's managing editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.

8. 'Resident Evil IV Remake' (PS5, PS4, XSX, PC)

In Resident Evil 4, players rejoin Leon, who is now a U.S. agent with a top-secret mission, looking into the abduction of the President's daughter, now with modernized gameplay, a reimagined storyline, and vividly detailed graphics.

Redmond Carolipio: Are we starting to get too many remakes? Probably. But that's partially because Capcom's work with the RE series has been so high quality, reshaping the experiences and leveling up the definition of what a remake should actually be. I enjoyed the hell of out the Resident Evil 3 remake, despite it being such a short ride, but to be fair, the "original" RE3 was fun and a bit on the shallow side as well. The fourth installment will be a different animal altogether. It's been revered in every aspect, and if any game in the series deserves another revamped and captivating look, it's this one, chainsaws, Leon and Ada Wong in row.

Chris "Atom" DeAngelus: Resident Evil 4 is considered a true classic and is still fun to play. So why a remake? It's a good question, but everything we've seen of the remake looks great. The core gameplay and style appear to have been kept but improved, offering the gameplay improvements seen in the other recent Resident Evil remakes. Resident Evil 4 is a very difficult game to follow up, but this looks like it'll be a great time.

Claudio Meira: Resident Evil 4 is one of the top entries in the long-running Resident Evil franchise. The remakes of RE2 and RE3 are proof that Capcom has the staff and resources to make Resident Evil 4 Remake the best entry in the series yet.

Andreas Salmen: The first time I played RE4 was in VR on the Quest 2, which is probably the main reason I'm excited about the remake. We don't know to what extent there will be PSVR 2 functionality in the title, but that alone has me excited to see this remake. If previous remakes are anything to go by, I have a good feeling RE4 will turn out similarly well put together. At the very least, it won't be as clunky to play as the original, and that's already a great improvement in my book.
