RetroStation: Resident Evil 2 – looking back at a true legend of lights-off gaming

OPM: Why exactly has this storied survival horror managed to ape its own subject matter and exist so far beyond its natural life? One: it has atmosphere. A clinging, portentous atmosphere still capable of coaxing your brain into initiating its T-shirt-soddening sequence at the chime of the menu screen bell. Two: it’s brutally, hilariously unfair. (PS2, Resident Evil 2)

Appart from maybe Crash bandicoot I can't think of another Playstation game that had such a big impact on the gaming world in the Playstation era like Resident Evil 2.

Final Fantasy 7 would be another, Castlevania Symphony Of The Night is another one and I think maybe Spyro just to name a few...

This game truly nearly traumatized me when I was little. I watched my Dad play through the whole game and I had nightmares for weeks; still it was fun to watch.

I remember walking down stairs when I was about 4 and seeing my Dad playing the first Resi for the first time, as soon as I was downstairs the scene with the first Zombie played where he turns around at the camera.
My parents flipped out and thy were frantically trying to turn off the Sega Saturn and TV lol.
