Prepare to celebrate the world of Survival Horror as we knew it then and know it now, as Resident Evil

The story is too old to be commented.

The original and REmake. Simply awesome. Wish I could experience them both again for the first time

i say the original RE on PS1 is a true legendary game that would not be replicated again ...Fujiwara ,Mikami ,Iwao and Makoto Tomozawa on music ,these 4 extremely talented guys developed one of the best games ever created and it will be rare to almost impossibe such legends to work together again

RERemake couldntreplicate that magic again as lost key developers and became more like cliche cheap horror movie...rather than smthing genuine like the 1st one was

I thought the REmake was fine.

@above it is good ..not saying the opposite ..but lost the feeling of the first

I mean that's kind of always the case tbh. A lot of old games can't replicate the exact same feeling

Yep. The franchise is one of the few that started back on the PS1 and is still super relevant today. I mean, Toshinden, Ridge Racer, etc., have all faded. Not all, but most have.

Experiencing these games the first time around is always a nice feeling. In a quiet and dark room with the sound turned up and not knowing where to go, that's where Survival Horror truly excels. The original and Remake all provide their own flavors and sounds. Just don't play the Director's Cut Dual Shock version and that Basement song.XD

These games were just spectacular. I must've played REmake tens of times on my Gamecube back in the day. And I remember blowing a lot of my allowance to rent RE1 on PS1 from Blockbuster... that game was tough as a kid!

At least you were allowed to play that game as a kid. It seems laughable now, but I guess that pixelated violence was enough to up the rating at the time. Not everyone's parents seemed to care about that sort of thing, but mine did. Oh well, I made amends years later, and eventually played both RE1 and its remake...along with the rest of the series, so it worked out.

Haha maybe... the infamous dog part resulted in me not playing the game for about half of the initial rental before getting the courage as a kid to resume playing :P

I definitely appreciate the game (and the remake) more as an adult.
