I don't have much experience with Resident Evil, but I personally believe that Keiji Inafune poisoned Capcom as a whole with his "Western" game design philosophy. This has been going on for a long time, it just took a while for people to notice since it hit Capcom's main franchises(Devil May Cry, Resident Evil, Megaman, etc.). Resident Evil 5 was a soulless, mediocre (but still enjoyable) third person shooter in a sea of soulless, mediocre(but still enjoyable) third person shooters, and I believe the genre shift also made it that much easier for survival horror games to die without anyone noticing.

I think the Resident Evil: Revelations release is just going to be a litmus test to see which direction Capcom wants fans to take with the series, what with the talk about rebooting the series and all.
