I have mixed feelings of the new trailer. It looks like they're going for more traditional shooter controls, which means the game will somehow inevitably be even more linear than Resident Evil 5 with negative twenty-five percent puzzles.
But, the demo for Resident Evil: Revelations also appeared on the 3DS e-Shop, and it certainly has more of a creepy vibe. The enemies are strong, ammo is light and, well, I died. So it'll basically be the atmosphere of the original Resident Evil with the controls and difficulty of Resident Evil 4! Or so that's my analysis.
Also: Final Fantasy died with 8, as well as my inner child.
I get my scares a lot different than most.
I played REmake and I was so pissed at how shitty
the controls and interface were handled it was unplayable to me. It just gave me a bad taste in my mouth. All the atmosphere and creepiness was lost on frustration. After wasting nineteen bullets on a regular zombie because you can't aim for shit (and your some kind of SWAT knock off for crying out loud). The only time I was scared was from jump scares.
Then there's four. Hey you can shoot for shit, you can suplex, roundhouse kick, and otherwise be a Bruce Willis stand-in... and it don't mean jack! Now take a chainsaw to the face. I've never run around in a game more terrified than the first time I ran into a chainsaw ganados, and then they introduced hyper chainsaw ganados and I think I may have wet myself.
Five was really more of four with a partner, which was dumb any kind of horror psycho or jump scare is born of intimacy. Partners kill that. Having someone to rely on right their kills that. So yeah, RE5 was worse, but I'd play it before I played any of the ones with crap controls on the grounds that at least it's playable.
Psycho horror doesn't work on me in game, because that would mean I would have to be
the character. Environment, imagery, and shock scares are the only thing that get to me. Usually because the first two soften for the latter-most one.
Dark Souls on the other hand: God it's a hamster! Oh, God! No! No! No! Run, run, run! It will kill your soul!
