Resident Evil Series Retrospective

The Illusive Man says:"Do you remember the first time you played Resident Evil? I do. My brother and I were at my cousins house for a sleepover, and he had just rented the last copy of RE from the local Blockbuster Video. None of us knew what to expect; we were on the verge of the internet boom, and if you didn’t have a subscription to EGM (and were too lazy to spend hours in the video game section of a book store), you weren’t privy to pre-release hype. The cover art didn’t provide any help, with Chris looking like he’s being driven insane by his crippling fear of spiders. But I when saw that human eye, and my cousin selected “New Game,” the chilling voice saying “Resident Evil” sent a foreboding shiver down my spine." (Culture, Industry, Resident Evil, Retro)

Resident Evil 4 is da game.

Resident Evil is a clear indication that just because you dominated a genre in the previous gen doesn't mean that trend will continue in the next gen.

Resident Evil isn't even in the same genre as it was before. If they stuck to survival horror, they would have stayed on top.

Playing Resident Evil 1 as a young fella back in the 90's was like seeing a naked woman for the first time!

Exhilarating and Eyeopening at the same time!
