The rise and fall of Resident Evil

“Resident Evil” is one of the most beloved and successful franchises in gaming. The series has received multiple Game of the Year awards and has sold over 50 million copies worldwide.

The first three games on the PlayStation 1 popularized the survival horror genre and “Resident Evil 4” is widely considered one of the greatest games ever created.

This is why it’s utterly heartbreaking to see the once great “Resident Evil” crumble and collapse under the pressure of its own weight.

How did this happen? How did “Resident Evil” go from top dog to a chew toy?

Will wait for the reboot of the series.
If that ends up sucking we always have

The series doesn't need a reboot. There is so much stuff left to cover. They are a long way out for a reboot. Capcom can easily go back to the classic vibe if they want to.

I love the direction RE is going. Keep doing what you're doing Capcom(except the DLC bs and re-release crap)

Will always be supporting the franchice.

Lovable :)

Resident Evil 4 was the beginning of the end... period!!!

Yes, it put them on the wrong path, but RE4 still maintained the spirit of resident evil.

RE4 was/is one of the best games for me ever. Ive been gaming since 84/85

absolutely masterful, almost perfect, completely awe inspiring, my second fav resi game is RESI 2, shame i didn't play 1 or 3 cause i had an N64 only back then but i heared great great things about them, I hope 1 day they remake RESI 2 just like they did with RESI 1 remake on the gamecube

cooperdnizzle1977d ago

That sucks if ya think re4 is one of the best games. To each there own, but i would think ya don't play a lot of games if that is at the top

ape0071977d ago

Resi 4....simply the best resi game of all time

spektical1977d ago

oh how the mighty have fallen. RE5 was the start of the massive blunder for a very successful franchise in terms of content and quality.

ape0071977d ago

im in my first hour and half of resi 6 on leon campaign, it's a blast so far, it's a high quality game, of course if u compared it to 1-4 you'll be disappointed but try to play it as it is, it's good so far

cooperdnizzle1977d ago

Leon has a good campaign the other suck really really bad
