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.

enkiduxiv656d ago

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.

jBlakeeper646d ago

The casuals fans yes, but not the fans who play it for the horror aspect

KingofBandits655d ago

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

Babadook7656d ago

The crazy thing is I mostly agree with this list except I would not put 0 as a mainline RE.

anast656d ago

4,5 and 6 should all share the same spot. Other than the technical aspects of 4, the game was actually a joke.

pietro1212656d ago

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,

KingofBandits655d ago

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.

KingofBandits655d ago

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 4 “Separate Ways” DLC Walks a Bolder Path than the Core Game

Is Resident Evil 4 Separate Ways a new high-water mark for RE DLC? Or should Ada have stayed in the shadows?

You really truly want to play AAA games designed for massive TVs on a 6.1 inch screen?? Where your battery will die in probably less than an hour?
Talk about a compromised experience, zero immersion.

CrimsonWing691d 7h ago

Yea, no, I’d rather play a game on a console with a large TV. Not hunched over holding a phone to my face.

I mean it’s cool that the phone can play these games, but I wouldn’t ever game on a phone.

Charlieboy3331d ago

The implications are zero. Mobile players are into pick up and play titles like Candy Crush, Angry Birds and Bubble Shooter. You know, the kind of games made for killing time by conveniently pulling your phone out of your pocket for some quick levels. It's a completely different market and it blows my mind that some people still don't understand that.

People who are into big budget AAA games do not want play play the worst version where all that glorious detail is squeezed onto a tiny screen with shit touch controls. Sure you can you use a controller backbone, but then where's the convenience that?

So the new Iphone is capable of runnning AAA level games now comparable to console. Big whoop. Do you honestly see people flocking to play, for example, a whole bunch of battery destroying hours in a game such as Baldur's Gate 3 on their phone while taking a dump or at the doctor's office? Surely your phone is the way to go to experience the new Cyberpunk expansion maybe?

Sure, whatever.


Ada Looks Awesome in Resident Evil 4: Separate Ways | COGconnected

One omission from the incredible Resident 4 remake was the Ada Wong story. Capcom aims to correct that with the new DLC, Separate Ways.

She does look great, very monotone though. A bit of emotion in the voice acting wouldn't have gone amiss though. Having said that, it wouldn't be Resident Evil without some ropey VA.
