Pixelitis Picks: Our most fear-inducing moments in Resident Evil

Whether you believe that the “survival horror” subgenre is dead or not, you can’t deny that Capcom’s Resident Evil series aided in bringing horror games to the mainstream.

The mid-’90s and early ’00s brought forth a stream of games that aimed to shock the player in numerous ways. Resident Evil’s claim to fame was its use of tension and “jump” scares to keep the player on his or her toes. Recent entries in the series (yesterday’s Resident Evil 6 included) are straying away from that sort of horror in favor of a more action-packed experience, but that’s not to say we haven’t forgotten about all those horrific moments.

Whether it’s running from Nemesis, getting ambushed by a Licker for the first time or being a Crimson Head zombie’s latest snack, the Resident Evil series has had its fair share of frightening and intense moments. Allow us to share some with you. (Capcom, Culture, PS2, PS3, Resident Evil 2, Resident Evil 3: Nemesis, Resident Evil 4, Retro, Wii, Xbox 360)

I'm sorry, but I am the first to (unashamedly) admit that I am a MASSIVE chickensh*t wimp when it comes to anything scary in videogames*. Everything I ever saw of this game scared me sh*tless, but that Del Lago scene ABSOLUTELY sealed my staying continents away from this game and series in total (you've no idea how terrified I am of things that live in water, especially when they're bigger than my big toe).

*strangely, movies do absolutely nothing for me : /

I doubt they will, they don't listen to the fans who want it to stay true to what it originally was, all it did was change.

Hopefully Capcom can start changing the game for the better but idk.

It was scary spending $60 on RE6 while knowing I was going to regret it. And I do. Still I have to play every game good or bad. Just should have waited for a price drop which will probably come soon based on reviews.
