I think he might be the most boring and unlikeable character in Capcom's history
not going to top Nero from DMC
RE7 Ethan was boring because he's you. RE8 gave him an arc for no reason other than plot armor.
>>608157831What arc?>My daughter is not a weapon! I have to save my daughter! Mia! I have to save my daughter! Chris! My daughter is not a weapon!
Notice how it’s only trannies from Twitter who hate Ethan
Why's he got the 1000 cock stare?
>>608157976>Notice how it’s only trannies from Twitter who hate Eth-ACK!
>>608156948He was cool in 7.The guy literally came from work and went through hell to save his wife.But the 8 had to try to make him a "real character" and fuck it all up.
>>608158027Recognise it from the mirror, anon?
RE7 Ethan was great because he was essentially just a faceless blank slate you could project yourself onto. Which made perfect sense for the first person perspective where they wanted less of a disconnect between the player and the game. This is also why he rarely talks.Naturally people bitched about this so they went and completely fucked it up in RE8, oh that average everyday guy? Yeah he's super unique with a special bloodline now; and the fucking proto-villain of the entire series wants his daughter. Also he won't shut the fuck up with the bad quips and constantly tries to come of as memorable and badass now. When the whole fucking point was that he was just a faceless vanilla dude in the previous game.
>>608157927Yes...and IS better than "i Must stop X because i am a good Guy"that the rest of the cast have.Ethan is not a hero...He Just want to protect the ones He Loves...the rest be danmed.
>>608158270Yup. It was done out of pure laziness. Fuck Village.
>>608158495I liked him in both games :(I thought he was fine either way. It's not like I'm playing RE for the stellar writing. It's all totally fine for what it is, which is campy bullshit
>>608158495But that is what is lovable on hin in RE8.He is not Leon a super special agent with ninja skills,He is a father with some Basic training and a half assed healing factor (He didnt even grow his lost parts back)Hin making bad jokes Works perfectly with hin trying to cope with all the shit He is dealing with...Even in RE7 He makes jokes when he Saw large Marge arm grabing the lamp.
>>608158658>That many elipsesI do not take Indian posters seriously
No wonder He is hated...the concept of a good Husband and Father is shunned more and more in modern society...lefties prefer that the murderous monster Wind because she is hot.And /v/ hates hin because He isnt a incel.
>>608159346Yeah make excuses...stay ignorant.........UR R A FAGET
>>608156948>More boring than Jake>More boring than HelenaYou are wrong
>>608156948He is the most wholesome character in video game history.
>>608159965Jake was based. Helena sucked
>>608156948only played RE4 and stopped near the castle and never went back to play it because i am too lazy. is re7 and 8 good?
>>608160494Nah>Wesker is know for his blond Aryan Air inb4netflix Nisker>His son is the most cowadooty generic protag ever
>>608160634RE7 is better than RE8 but both are good.RE8 is pretty much FIrst Person RE4
I like Ethan
>>608160852are these games scary re4 was more action than horror granted i only played till like castle level? i wanna play more horror games and I jumped into visage but that was too creepy for me.
Ethan Winters is the only fun RE character since RE4 Leon. It its right into the sweetspot of rookie but with the RE camp
>>608161005Re7 and RE8 are good for light horror, but both of them fall apart on replays, also they're very sectioned off. "This is the Horror Part, This is the Action Part"
>>608161005RE7 can be pretty scary,top tier horror atmosphere.Capcom thenselves told that RE8 got toned down on horror because japan found RE7 too scary.RE8 have one scary section but otherwise,looks alot like RE4
>>608161195>>608161321any other horror game suggestions for scares but less than visage because that shit was too much? i played the silent hill games but they weren't really scary.
>>608159706>And /v/ hates hin because He isnt a incel.>isnt a incel.uhhhhhhhh
>>608156948That's understandable. He's not a character. In 7 his "character" was saying, "Where's Mia?" and in 8 his "character" was saying, "Where's Rose?"
>>608161623Poppy Playtime if you like Zoomer Horror, try Itch.io games and you might find a diamond or two.
>>608161623Cry of FearTormented SoulsDead Space 1-2Fatal FrameMy personal favorites
>>608161805Oh soo you dont know what a incel is?ok>>608161860Oh soo you didnt play the games?ok
>>608162828>Poppy Playtime if you like Zoomer Horror,no thanks>>608162828>try Itch.io games and you might find a diamond or two.whatever I find cool has only a demo with the creator long past making the game or hasn't released yet.>>608163035>Cry of Fearplayed it but got stuck on some puzzle but decent source game.>Tormented Soulswill check it out.>Dead Space 1-2enjoyed 1 but also wasn't really scary>Fatal Frametoo fucking hard, remember playing it on ps2 but apparently you needed a guide to do everything, i enjoyed silent hill but toyama went crazy with his next 2 games but loved gravity rush 1 and 2 tho
>>608163035>Cry of FearReddit game
>People still say Ethan is a non character in RE7 when he get one of the most basic but satisfying arcs with Jack.Is amazing How most people get filtered by RE7 despite being a Very tight simple horror game
>>608156948Uhmm... uhh....f-fuck you!!
>>608159791>That many elipsesI can now take Indian posters seriously
>>608159346It's just the resident esl schizo. He always shows up when there is talk of his boyfriend Ethan.
>>608160494Jake is a huge faggot actually
>>608165438>>608165346>>608164065And you are probably one of the butthurt bitches that i BTFO?top kek.
>>608156948it doesn't help he only has a fan-look and never was given an actual appearance
>>608156948You think wrong.
>>608156948I'm curious why they made him look around 25 despite being like 40+. Looks younger than Rookie Leon
>>608156948What exactly do you want from a new protagonist? Every time Capcom tries to have new characters ready to succeed the older characters who are aging, people are ready to cry foul. And I guess for you OP, things worked out, since Ethan is apparently dead, with Rose taking over.
He simped for one of the worst women in the series, and his plot twist was retarded because no shit he was already an infected mold man. Did he think he could just reattach his arm and leg naturally in RE7, and just handle all the bullshit that happens to him in 8 cutting up his hands or stabbing him through the chest and just walking it off?
My theory regarding Ethan in the DLC/possible sequel: This is only a theory, not some "leak" that I got from "my dad who works at Capcom" shit. >Ethan is still alive within the "consciousnesses" of the mold in the village. He just doesn't have his body back (yet)>Remember how half of his hand got bit off in that seemingly innocuous yet oddly permanent injury from the werewolf in the beginning of the game? There's a reason Capcom did this methinks. >The most important elements are always portrayed in the beginning and ending of any narrative. Every other injury Ethan gets is either immediately healed or his limb gets reattached right after. But his left hand (specifically, the one with the wedding ring, HINT HINT) doesn't get healed. Almost as if, that part of his body is a huge plot device to be saved for something important later down the line>Remember, Ethan is already dead. He is essentially, entirely mold. In a world with regenerating vampires, telekinesis, gigantic mutations born of viruses that form hive minds and "networks," is not impossible for Ethan to regenerate from that missing part of his hand that was never recovered>This would also be symbolically significant,as it would be his "better half" returning to him, making him whole again ((the ring finger, the one that carries the wedding ring)>Also of note is the DLC teaser that shows the warning messages Rose gets. Clearly Ethan is trying to tell Rose to steer clear of the village. Who else could it be?
And he looks like a goblin.
Wasn't it confirmed the person at the end of RE8 that stops the car is Ethan? Or I suppose someone impersonating Ethan? I thought it was a shoop, but several anons said it was real, so I don't know. Not sure how Ethan is technically alive, and why he just magically reappears like 15-20 years later.
>>608169000 trips confirm Ethan is still alive
>>608169069>>608169000CAN'T FOLD THE MOLD
>>608156948But he is you
>>608156948Bold choice to make a game where you play as an NPC
>>608168754he looks like Fred from scooby doo. I expect him to suddenly look at the camera and tell me how he "THINKS RACOON CITY SUCKS"
>>608156948wow he is just like me :)
