It's been a long 19 years since Resident Evil was first released. There have many games since (24 to be precise) and 5 live action movies. All ranging from good to terrible. Lots of people still maintain that the original game was the best.
Back in it's day Resident Evil was revolutionary, the intense horror/puzzle game was visually stunning and equally terrifying. When I first played this game on Playstation all those years ago the static camera angles really increased the intense atmosphere that the game so cleverly created. Those corners you couldn't see around, the reflections in the mirrors, and those pesky ravens that would taunt you from up high!
