Resident Evil 4: Wii Edition. Best game in the series to date...
-MD-  +   1308d ago

Baka-akaB  +   1308d ago
Why ? it's kinda the ultimate version of one of the best RE games ...

Arent the PSN/XBL version just hd upscales of the ps2 version ? eh just asking ...

isn't the wii version just the ps2 version with wii controls? its not even hd. and imo i thought re4 was good, except for that whole ashley thing, protecting her was so lame. Gameplay wise RE5 was far better, well aslong as your coop, atmosphere and story wise goes to RE4.

@Edit at baka

ahhh ok wasn't aware there were more bonuses for wii version. and dude im speaking gameplay wise RE5 was better, i played re4 right after re5 and was like ack.

obviously re5 core gameplay was the same but more advanced from re4. I beat RE4 twice and beat RE5 4 times. both great games, regardless of scare factor since no one should be scared by a game anyway.

more likely to die in COD online than in silent hill, RE or dead space

uh ? the Wii version would be , at least , the superior to ps2 , gamecube version upgraded with new controls and bonuses . Only good thing better on the ps2 version were the bonuses , wich are included on the wii re-release , along a new option control scheme via wiimote that's actually neat .

And well i guess we'll just agree to disagree on RE5 , was a total turd compared to RE4 .

resi 5 was trash. i don't know what to think of resi 4 though. overall its a excellent game but kind of drags and drags and drags on. i've been playing the PS3 HD one and still haven't finished it because its such a long game and i need breaks from it.

Resident Evil 3 .. nufsaid !

How many resident evil games are there? It seems weird to have a top ten when there aren't that many more than that total, and many of them are non-triple A spin-offs. I wouldn't count the same game on different systems or special editions of numbered games.

I know that "lists" are all the rage on the interwebs right now, but this is kinda ridiculous. Its like counting down the top 20 Bond films. There are 22 total. If there aren't enough of a thing to do top ten, then you just shouldn't make your list "ten".

I know this seems like a silly rant, but the line has to be drawn somewhere.

And, on topic, I'd definitely rate Resident Evil 1 as the best, simply because it paved the way for the genre and delivered scares that weren't really possible before then on a video game system. Most people have fond memories of it. The dogs. There ya go. Silly dialogue, in a good way, kinda broke the tension sometimes. I think IMPACT and gameplay should be the ranking factors for most games. It isn't about graphics or minor tweaks/changes.

Resident Evil Remake Hands down. Had everything Graphics, Atmosphere, Music, New content. The perfect survival horror game
Venox2008  +   1308d ago
Gotta agree with every word you have said now :)
JakemanPS31994  +   1308d ago
Resident evil outbreak was amazing! I dont care what people say, i still think they are both some of the bes resident evil games ever! My personal favorite would be RE3 though, it was my first resident evil game and certainly of the scariest.
belal  +   1308d ago
RE3 minus the controls because it's old is the best resident evil game. STAAAARS!
Horny  +   1308d ago
My personal favorite was the remake of the first. The graphics were amazing and they kept everything great about the first one and added more to make it even better.
My favorite are:
Resident evil 1 remake (put the original under this too)
Resident evil 2
Resident evil 3
Resident evil zero
Resident evil 4

Those are my personal top 5
JakemanPS31994  +   1308d ago
My top 10 would be:
Resident evil 3
resident evil 4
resident evil 0
Resident evil 2
Resident evil outbreak
resident evil 1
Resident evil umbrella chronicles
Resident evil outbreak file 2
Resident evil code veronica X

It's really hard for me to rank the first 3 because I played them all when they first released and have fond memories of me and my cousin beating those games. Nostalgia does have a lot to do with but I still play then from time to time.

The remake was just terrific. That is what I always imagined resident evil being like. I would probably say thats the best remake in video game history.
I remember when I walked passed a dead zombie and the bastard got up and started running after me, great moment.

The remake of Number 1 was stellar. It was really difficult for me to let go of Barry's stupid dialogue though. It defined a lot of funny moments of my college years.


I don't know Barry, what the hell DOES it look like to you? Ya Magnum-toting moron. ;P
J_Cob  +   1307d ago
Barry has to be the only person that wouldn't call someone Captain Obvious.
Pozzle  +   1307d ago
Awww, I was so disappointed when Barry didn't say "You were almost a Jill Sandwich!" in the remake. I wish they had kept at least some of his cheesy lines. lol
J_Cob  +   1307d ago
The remake was fantastic.

SegataShanshiro  +   1307d ago
Lol everyone is like: so you mean Resident evil 4 was not the first in the series!?
Remake hands down and if you disagree then you are a resident evil 4 f4agg0t
ScytheX3  +   1307d ago
'top 10' lol theres alot but damn top 10? really? might aswell say top 20 final fantasy games, lists half of them -_-
girlwithturn  +   1307d ago
Outbreak missed but Revelations included. This is nintendo's article. Fail.

1) Resident Evil 2.
2) Resident Evil Outbreak series.
3) Resident Evil 3.
4) Resident Evil 1.

And another top. Parts that ruined franchise (for young players):

1) Resident Evil 4.
2) Mikami.
3) Resident Evil 5.
4) Mikami.

Started playing RE5 online with a friend in Co-op.. What the hell was I playing?
entitygm  +   1307d ago

Don't get me wrong I love Resident Evil, even as it's evolved from survival horror to survival action, but that article was pathetic. It was a (very) thinly veiled advertisement for the options available for download. They didn't even sort things just mentioned all that was available on PSN/XBL. Putting RE2 lower on the list than code veronica? Seriously?
