'The Resident Evil series has been a staple of most gamers experience over the last 13 years or so.
Most people will have played at least one game in the series, most gamers will have played all of the main story games (i.e. 1,2,3 and 4) and the hardcore will have also played the numerous spin off games (Code Veronica, Zero etc).
It is a much loved series and for good reason - despite some difficult control issues and extremely hammy dialogue the games really developed the 'survival horror' genre and have given us some brilliant boss battles and a fair few genuine scares along the way. Resident Evil 4 remains the only game to ever make me yelp loud enough that someone in another room heard me.'
