I feel like most people will disagree with every possible position you placed this games on the list. It’s as if it’s intentionally thought out to be divisive.
His ranking is pretty much spot on for me (except for Zero). However, I will admit to being an old school resident evil fan. I'm not so far gone that I am demanding the return of tank controls, but I do like the slower, less actiony more atmospheric titles. I suspect that there are a lot of us out there like this. Nevertheless, Resident Evil is more of an action series than a horror series. Most of the fans would probably put Village and 4 at the top and 1, 2 and 7 at the bottom.
Nope honestly the best game in the series for me is the originals remake, nothing after had the same atmosphere.
The casuals fans yes, but not the fans who play it for the horror aspect
Thats Capcom's fault by fragmenting the series so heavily over the decades. its made the fan base broken and volatile. The RE4 bro's always trying to argue with the 0-CV fans while the new first person fans scream about how its the best while citing "sales numbers". I wish Capcom would stop messing with the series by chasing trends and focus on story and mechanics while leaving the gameplay classic. Worry about reinventing it when the sales get slow
The crazy thing is I mostly agree with this list except I would not put 0 as a mainline RE.
4,5 and 6 should all share the same spot. Other than the technical aspects of 4, the game was actually a joke.
I love 4, but I think it sucks as a Resident Evil and Survival Horror. 5 was a good arcade shooter and nothing more. 6 was a mess trying to find it's own identity. I wholly disagree on Village, it's not a good horror game besides some elements, but man I had a lot of fun playing it though,
I am really glad to see so many comments echo this, as I have been saying these things for a very long time mostly into an echo chamber. I sincerely hope that the fanbase starts to shift so we can get classic survival horror back. Not just fixed camera but proper pacing, item management, and other aspects of design
I’ve never played the series myself, I’ve always watched a friend or now, a stream. If I were to get into the series, what is the order if I just want to play the remasters/upgraded versions? I looked on the store once and there were so many different versions I got confused. Yeah, dumb I know but I thought I’d ask.
from a modern perspective RE2 R and RE3 R would be a good starting point but to do it properly play the HD remaster of RE1 R then move on to those. if the series becomes a fav for you going back to the older titles would be what I'd recommend next. Moving on to 4-8 only is you REALLY want to as to me those are the weakest in the series.
Resident Evil 5 was pure cancer, absolutely hated that game when it came out. Could not bother with beating it at the time, and I saw the entire franchise as dead from there on and out. I did however decide to play trough the PS4 version a few years back...just to get it off my conscience along with RE6. I found the game extremely boring and ass still.
Wtf made this list ??? No mention of the originals remake which is a classic on its own. Then had Resident Evil 0 as a better game then village SMH … man huge facepalm
