The loss of humanity bit was present in the RE4 zombies, too. They were the product of the same zombifying virus as the other zombies, and you spend the better part of the game trying to get yourself cured after you become infected.
And even if you ignore that bit because there was no set time limit or anything for completing the game, the loss of humanity from a single bite just doesn't occur in any game with zombies, not even the first few RE games. And it doesn't occur because that would be a sucky, frustrating game.
It sounds less like you actually enjoyed any of the Resident Evil games, and more like you just like zombies, period.
