Resident Evil - all the main Resi games ranked from worst to best

For a series so beloved, the core titles in Capcom’s survival horror series vary wildly in quality. With the Resident Evil 2 Remake set for release in January and looking really impressive, it’s time to look back at the main, numbered Resident Evil games and work out which ones are still worth your time.

This is a horrible list.. pathetic

bouzebbal49d ago

i second this..
in my opinion it is something like this

Code:Veronica <3

Solesquared48d ago

I can definitely dig your list.. RE4 is overrated to me.. I loved RE5, but I couldn't put it over 4 .

1.RE Code Veronica

RE 7 shouldnt be on the list (its not a RE game , it s trash materilised into game) ...also the first and the best should have been original RE1 (psx version)...2 nd RE 3 ..3rd -RE2, 4th-RE Remake ...and after them the chaos starting by the lame RE4

You really sound like a scratched record. RE7 was brilliant. I know you like the original games just as much as me (0,1,2,3,CV) and we agree that the downfall was RE4 but RE7 was the best RE games we've had in years. Better than the classics? No but it was a damn good experience.

You might want to check a game that YouTuber Residents of Evil are making which is heavily borrowing ideas from past RE games.

It's so funny seeing your comments.

RE7 is the closest thing we've gotten to oldschool Resident Games since before RE4. The only difference is the perspective. If RE7 had been 3rd person with tank controls it would have been exactly like the old ones.

I get it if you don't like the FPS view. But that certainly doesn't make it any less of an RE game.

Noticeable lack of mention to Resident Evil: Revelations 1&2 on this list

meganick49d ago

They’re spin-offs, not a part of the mainline series.

FallenAngel198449d ago

No the Revelations games are mainline titles just like Code: Veronica. It’s the reason why RE7 is known as the 11th mainline entry.

meganick49d ago

That doesn’t link to anything official from Capcom.

meganick49d ago

Are you asking about the quality of the games or are you asking if they should even be considered games?

stefan_77149d ago

I want to know if they are any good and worth checking out. Thinking about getting the origins collection

meganick49d ago

Some are great, some are mediocre, and some are bad. I’d recommend starting with the RE1 remake which was recently ported to PS4, XB1 and I think PC.

NecrumOddBoy48d ago (Edited 48d ago )

RE games are overall good, but they almost all have archaic control schemes which may make it difficult to play nowadays. I think the Resident Evil 2 remake is going to be something really special because it can retain the original form but modern is it enough to make it accessible for a new generation. Playing Resident Evil 1 now is very difficult because of the controls. Tank controls are terrible and have always been terrible even when they were relevant.

meganick49d ago

When judged purely as survival horror experiences, RE remake is the best, followed by RE2.

Zeldafan6449d ago

I still haven't played 2 yet.

Prettygoodgamer48d ago

I always enjoyed 3 the best with the nemesis guy

meganick48d ago

Nemesis was cool but RE2 did it first with Mr. X in scenario B.

MEGANE49d ago (Edited 49d ago )

This list was spot on to me, I wouln’t change anything... the only thing that am hoping its to add is a new #1 to that list with RE2 remake.( fingers crossed).
Am 39 years old so I play them all at the time they came out, and am guessing the lack of the “revelations games” in this list is due to the fact that the RER games where never AAA games but a port of 3DS games at the time where we already had a RS5 for example. Resident Evil Revelations were not a high buget games... never expected to be bloockbuster games.
