RE4 best one, i really like more the boring RE5 & RE6

Storywise and the way the story was told, Resident Evil 1 is the best Resident Evil game of all time. Without a doubt the best horror game.

I had chills down my spine during the whole playthrough. Even the most subtle thing, the sound of the footsteps scared the living crap out of me. And entering a new room and hearing the rotting flesh of their mouths moan like never-tiring beasts while you couldn't see them yet you knew they were getting closer, goddamnit that was scary moments.

For me, that will always be my favorite horror game. Probably one of my favorite games of all time.

Didn't like 4 either but just going by the critical eye:

1. 4
2. 2
3. 1
4. Veronica
5. 5
6. 3

And the other games aren't worth playing unless your a fan of the series. Matter of fact you can skip 5 and 3 too.

no it isn't, Resident evil 4 was a revolutionary third person action game for the industry but it was a terrible resident evil game. it literally had nothing to do with resident evil. the only connection RE4 has to resident evil is the name of the characters.

I don't understand people. I remember when 4 came out, everyone was talking about it. Best game ever! Best Resident Evil game! Then 5 comes along and its too action-y for some, so they start blaming RE4 for it. Now all of sudden RE4 sucks just because people didn't like 5. I never heard a bad thing about RE4 until RE5 came out.

RE1 remake on gamecube was the best. I always envied my friend who owned a gamecube for that game alone.
Bob Dole  +   661d ago
Ha! That and #4 are the only reason Bob Dole bought a gamecube.

Resident evil 0 on gamecube is amazing aswell, and RE: code veronica on Gamecube\ps2\dc
Dante81  +   661d ago
It's incredible. RE2 is the only other that comes close.
DCfan  +   661d ago
RE Outbreak takes the top.

You and I may be the only people who actually believe that on this site, unfortunately.

I know it's not close to be considered one of the best, but damn if it wasn't the most fun I've had on a Resident Evil game.

My only gripe is that it was on the PS2, which meant no online for me. Imagine that game remade with today's online; ultimate 4-player scavenge and survive horror.

That game was basically a survival horror version of Diablo just waiting to be made. Different starting classes and scavenge for weapons with a constant threat(always infected).

I know how it feels.
What i liked about the game was how hard it was, especially the hospital level with the zombie wih leaches over him that keeps following you and never dies.
I noticed how dumb the AI can be at times, wish they would remake it with 4 playr co-op, but you know its capcom

Did somebody say Outbreak?! That is one game I wished more people appreciated not only for the series to flourish but to see a main entry be created using the same engine. It was used instead to make Haunting Ground which I rank one of the best survival horror ever made.
DCfan  +   660d ago
Outbreak went under the radar because they focused too much on the online part, and the PS2 online infrastructure was... eh. still a great game to this day. I was looking for Haunting Ground, but its pretty rare and goes for 100$ online.
Feldman9000  +   661d ago
Did someone forget to add Remake? It was almost a completely different game.
PeteyMcPickle  +   661d ago
For me:
RE1 (Specifically the GC Remake)
RE: Zero
RE: 2
RE: 3
RE: Code Veronica
RE: Survivor
RE: 4

RE 5 and 6 just don't make the cut, and 4 BARELY got onto my list as I hardly even consider it a resi game.
Thepcz  +   661d ago
resident evil GC
is my fav. amazing graphics, hard as nails, truly scary.

then code veronic

then resident evil 4.

but to be honest, i havent played any of the others lol
Venox2008  +   661d ago
you forgot RE: 0 on gamecube
_FantasmA_  +   661d ago
1st Place: RE3 and RE1
2nd Place: RE4
3rd Place: CVX
4th Place: RE5 Gold
5th Place: RE2

Resident Evil 4 was probably my favorite one. But the Wii edition with the enhanced controls was better than the Gamecube version. Allowing to free aim for the first time was revolutionary, and using the wiimote to do it was even better.

RE:1 remake on the Gamecube would be my number 2, since it took the first one and made it better with enhanced visuals.

Resident Evil Revelations would be my number 3. Loved that game on the 3DS and the HD editions were a great way to play it on the big screen.

RE2 & RE3 would be behind those three, with CVX, 5 and 6 distantly in the back.

MehmetAlperTR  +   661d ago
Resident Evil 1 ( Remake ) - 3 - 2 - Zero - Code Veronica ( Yesss Evil Veronica G.Z ) Thats my list. I didnt like the RE4. It was full of action game. Now i m waiting for Shinji Mikami's new babe The Evil Within. RE 5-6 were from cRapCom, so they were CRAP.

#1-RE5 Gold (for co-op and re-playability)
2-Racoon City (loved the new direction, fresh ideas, rpg elements, 4 player co-op and controlling BOWs)
3-4 (Wii ver. for wiimote)
4-1 (for nostalgias sake)
5-Survivor (RE FPS? Yes please!)

The only 2 RE games that sucks is RE6 and RE Survivor
PurpHerbison  +   658d ago
RE5 was a let down. The only thing that kept it from being a complete failure was the fact that I could co-op the main story with a buddy and get away from the terrible Sheva AI.
