Resident Evil (1996) Is One Of The Most Important Games Ever Conceived

CGUK:
"A crouched, broad, human-like figure grunted inexplicably. The stomach-turning snorts came to a sudden halt. A brief moment of silence swept the room like a graceful Swallow. The figure meticulously turned its suspended, lifeless limbs until its origin was revealed. A citrine, leathery, cracked blanket matted the beast's decadent skull. It's eyes of the darkest abyss severed any chances of hope I had left. Situated below the drained relic of a nose was a tightly-drawn mouth, sucked of any life, oozing with a red humanly fluid.

The beast snarled.
There was no way out."

Nice write up on a classic game. Reading your feature really took me back to my first time exploring that ominous mansion in 1996.

Alone in the Dark anyone!

Alone in the Dark was also a very important franchise at one time. I also think that some of the point and click horror story PC Games from the 90s were extremely influential in the gaming narrative we play today.

You just made me think of a point and click horror game I used to play as a child. For the life of me I can't remember what it's called. All I remember is a scary room with a piano, the color scheme was mostly black and white.

Alone in the Dark was a great horror game (one of my favorite point and click games of my childhood). But it didn't have the cultural/innovative importance that Resident Evil did. Resident Evil really brought survival horror to the forefront of gaming. I miss how popular that genre was. :(
