Correct me if I’m wrong, but shouldn’t it be “passed” and “doesn’t”?

Can't forget in RE4: "You're right hand comes off?"

ID: hah6zq6

They say your average Redditor can't see what's wrong with this sentence

ID: hahgl3x

Your knot wrong.

ID: hahj19b

Your probably correct. But their seems like a lot more then just the average Reddit user. Two many people seem too confuse “your” and “you’re”. Its pretty common it seems…

Seems like a realistic spelling mistake for a person who's turning into a zombie.

Can spell meagre right though

The verb "do" is used for plural subjects, and "does" is used for singular. So "don't" is used correctly because "houses" is plural. An easy way to remember this is that it's "they do" and "he does".

You are correct that it's supposed to be "passed" instead of "past", so that just seems like a translation error. An easy way to remember this is that "passed" is a verb and always used as such, whereas "past" is never a verb.

Someone can probably explain it better than me. I'm just an IT nerd.

. . . an IT nerd that I just upvoted.

Good explanation, detailed, gives reasoning, all that.

Somebody run it by Lotus Prince. That dude ninja fucks grammatical errors in video games like it's his job.

Agree with “passed,” but I think “don’t” is correct usage.

ID: hagv9a4

I think you're right. It makes sense as do not but sounds weird as don't.

ID: hagxyhf

Yeah “don’t” might be correct but it definitely sounds weird.

I think it was done by Japanese so there will be mistakes they did the same thing with some American names before

There's a spelling mistake in OG RE3, they call the train's cockpit a 'well maintained contro room' lol

10 : Anonymous2021/08/26 21:26 ID: hah5p94

I can’t remember if it’s ReMake or OG re2, but there’s a note in one game that was written on November 31st.

11 : Anonymous2021/08/26 20:40 ID: hagz2o4

It should be passed, but as for don't it's not wrong because it's a contraction of Do Not which would also work it just sounds weird.

12 : Anonymous2021/08/26 20:42 ID: hagzg0k

Should be “passed,” but “don’t” is correct.

Lots of RE games have spelling/grammatical errors or translation issues.

Best response ever

14 : Anonymous2021/08/26 18:13 ID: hagd58r

i believe it should be 'passed', but 'do' think is correct because it is dictated by "houses" which is plural

"There does not seem to be a house in the area" vs "There do not seem to be any houses in the area"...i think

disclaimer: i'm a math first person, haven't taken any sort of english grammar or whatever in 25 years lol.

You hit the nail on the head, dw

More importantly, why does the font in the Remaster look so plain and ugly, but if you switch to japanese it looks like the font in the original gamecube version, which also apply to any english text in the japanese script. Case in point, the main menu, switch to japanese and all the options, New Game, Load Game, etc. use a much nicer and more appropriate font.

Why is that, OP?

ID: hah7bw3

I will try that out later!

passed/past it dont matter which one you use. you go past someone, and you go passed someone. I learned that one that hard way when I tried correcting someone once on reddit...

ID: hah75ya

“you go passed someone” isn’t correct though..

ID: hahblga

past tense: passed; past participle: passed 1.move or cause to move in a specified direction.

2.go past or across; leave behind or on one side in proceeding.

First one is a typo, second one is Jills thoughts and it’s while it might not be grammatically correct many people speak like that

ID: hah71zo

I didn’t think about it like that! but youre right

Should be "passed." But "don't" is correct.

ID: hah8jhz

I now see that “don’t” is correct, but for some reason it sounds wrong to me lol

Yeah they have tons of grammar mistakes. Fun fact: Hunk's original name was Hank, but in japanese both Hank and Hunk are pronounced as "hankku", so they mistook and went for Hunk intead.

In CVX, Alexia misspelled "soldier" as "solider" in her journal. And in the original RE2, Annette's name is spelled as "Annet" at one point.

22 : Anonymous2021/08/26 22:10 ID: hahbyec

That's perfectly fine England me thinks

23 : Anonymous2021/08/26 22:12 ID: hahc892

From a game that gave us gems like, “It’s a weapon! It’s really powerful! Especially against living things!” I wouldn’t be too concerned. Maybe the journal writer is a brilliant scientist but lousy writer?

I remember seeing this typo during my first playthrough last year.

If you're trying to hold the resident evil franchise to accurate English spelling, you're in for a lot of disappointment.
