Resident Evil 2 remake could be in the cards?

It's amazing how fickle horror fans can be. Mention a remake of a classic horror movie and we flip out in a bad way. Propose a remake of a classic horror video game and we flip out in a good way. I could spend all day hypothesizing as to why this is or I could cut to the chase and deliver some news on a possible RESIDENT EVIL 2 remake.

In a recent interview, Capcom producer Yoshiaka Hirabayashi revealed that the company has no plans to remake RESIDENT EVIL 2. However, if fan demand was big enough Capcom could potentially pursue the project:

"...If the fans really clamor for it; if there's a groundswell of support for remaking that game, then I think that's something Capcom would take under consideration."

Having grown up in the era of tank-controlled survival horror games like RESIDENT EVIL, I would not be against a remake that put it on par with the recent series. Then again, I'm also not going to rushing out to start a petition, either. How do you guys feel? Should we start campaigning for a RESIDENT EVIL 2 remake? Talk back below and while you're at it, check out our absolutely ace RESIDENT EVIL: DAMNATION contest.

Extra Tidbit: Sienna Guillory (above) made a very accurate looking RESIDENT EVIL 3-styled Jill Valentine in APOCALYPSE. Let's take a moment to appreciate that.

Well, when Capcom remade the first Resident Evil for the Gamecube, it was absolutely awesome. Looked amazing and changed just enough to keep it fresh, whilst still remaining faithful to the original. If they had kept the awesomely terrible voice acting, then I would have said it was better than the original, even.
If they could remake 2 (and hopefully eventually Nemesis which is my personal favourite) in the same vein - then I would be queuing up with the money that I am not going to buy

Hmm, by remaking the game, I hope they'd just make it look modernized and still have the mysteries/puzzled and running here & there in the game.

Eh

I'm rather mixed on this idea. Considering how much the more recent Resident Evil games have become more action oriented instead of puzzle oriented, I don't think I'd want them messing with this one. I just have a strong feeling they would ruin it. I'm against it for that reason. So unless they promise to keep those parts "as is", I would have zero interest.
