This series has had a long history beginning way back on the original PlayStation, moving onto the GameCube, and making its way into the HD console generation. Which RE game has been your absolute favorite?

For me, I have to go with the remake of the original Resident Evil for the GameCube. It will always be, to me, the perfect Resident Evil game. It had just the right amount of tension, just the right amount of fear, the atmosphere was amazing, the voice acting and writing were actually pretty decent, and it was just overall a great game. Here's hoping REmake gets the HD treatment.

It's always been RE4 for me. You're right though, the earlier Resident Evil's were far scarier, but it's kind of difficult to vote on this since the later games have the advantage of better technology. It's hard to say that a really old game is better then a more recent one. RE5 would have been #1, because co-op was a brilliant addition and it really improved on everything that RE4 had, but it had no element of fear in it and the fact that enemies eventually had guns tried to make the game into something it shouldn't be. It was no longer "survival horror." RE4 at least had some scary moments (Regenerators scared the shit out of me when I first played it, and so did U3.)

RE6, wherever they take it, should be open world with quests or maybe in this case "missions." I always thought that would put the RE series back on top. If they just made the next game scary like it should be, kept the same gameplay elements (and put the Attache Case and Merchant back in) and added open world, damn that would be sweet.

Resident Evil 2.

Absolutely jaw dropping when it first came out. Terrifying also.

I'm going to have to go with RE4. Playing that the night it came out was absolutely terrifying. REmake is a close second though, that also scared the crap out of me.

2 is not only my fave RE title but possibly my favourite game of all time. This game had it all. Zombie action. Scary as shit enemies. Great characters and multiple playthroughs. I must have beaten it 200 times. Never had more fun on a game.

Resident Evil (remake)
followed by part 2.
and then the outbreak games <3

Zero was good, but i got really annoyed at the whole switching characters part. Would be nice to have a co-op partner. But switching got pretty annoying after a while

Resident Evil 4. Followed closely behind by Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3: Nemesis.

I still play re1 and 2 on my psp and 2 is one of my all time favorite games. I doubt the remake will ever be on xbox live or PSN because of Nintendo having exclusive rights but if it does with achievments I would be a happy clown!

Resident Evil 4 for me by far. I always liked the franchise but never was a huge fan the actual game play(Combat). Res4 made it more personal for me then aiming off screen and shooting something as it got closer to me. My second favorite would be Resident evil 3...Nemesis was...an ass. But he is officially one of my favorite villains.

Hard choice.

RE2 probably the best game in terms of atmosphere, scale and how much it seemed to improve the already good original.

RE4 just improves on what was a bit of a stale formula though did remove the horror and suspense somewhat as well as the zombies, but is almost a perfect game.

RE5 added in co-op which I love and tweaked RE4's controls for the better, I actually liked Sheva and the graphics were amazing. Unfortunately the levels were dull, a lot of the plot had gone into Manga/Matrix territory and there were literally no scares left to be had.

So I would have to say it'd be RE4 I choose, though RE2 remade with RE4's engine would be awesome and the greatest game ever!

Resident Evil 4, loved the whole concept and new style they brung to the series, never really had the chance to play the earlier ones but i heard Resident Evil 3: Nemesis was really good.

STRANGER, not THAT'S a quite interesting but also tough poll. :beer:

Now I voted for the Resident Evil (Remake) but honestly THEY'RE ALL MY FAVOURITES, no more no less! One cannot exist without the other, except the first one back in 1996.

I think RE2 is my favourite out of the numbered series, though I think overall, it would be the Outbreak Games. Regardless of what anyone says, I thought it was far more scary to see glimpses of things around the corners due to the static camera before they pounced while you turned without being able to move the camera sideways and remove any aspect of horror.

Admittedly, it was damn near impossible for me at the time to work out how to play online with my PS2 but I did it just for that game. Looking back, I can see a lot of that game going into the Left4Dead games.

I've voted for RE4, but I prefer the Wii version.

RE5 is great on the PC. Quite a lot of nice user made mods. IMHO it makes the game a lot more fun than the console versions. Got it on PC, 360 and PS3 with motion controller but I always keep coming back to the PC version.

RE1 Remake would be my choice of the classic games.

Tough descision anyway. I've liked every game from the main series (except Nemesis) and the first umbrella chronicles game was great, too.

I'd say Nemesis for the sheer fun of being Jill with a huge B.O.W chasing you around the undead city, the fact that he can follow you ANYWHERE gets me every time.

Also, TC you made a typo with Resident Evil 2's name. ^^

SERIOUSLY!?!?! I'm glad I'm not the only one who noticed that. I swear at one part in the game he jumps through a 2nd or 3rd window(or falls through the ceiling or something>,>). I remember thinking,"How in the hell did his big ass get up here!?!:confused:"...My heart remembers that game better than my brain...so much suspense knowing that he can be anywhere at anytime...with a rocket launcher for added effect;)

By far the first Resident Evil is my favorite.

I remember going up to Funcoland everyday when they got their shipments in waiting for it to be released. I can't even remember how often it kept getting pushed back, this was before games had release dates on every Tuesday (US) My friend that worked there, my brother and I were super psyched once we got it.

I would always get into arguments with friends over which one was the best, but realized it was generally always the first RE game they played that's their favorite, fortunately I was able to get the first one on release while the majority of people I know got into RE when they released the second one.

To me the whole creepy mansion was just awesome, it seemed way scarier than most of the environments/areas in other RE games.

Edit: I should also give Resident Evil remake an honorable mention since it was almost as amazing as playing the original for the first time, and the graphics still stand up to this day compared to the original.

Had posted this in the Collectors Thread in the General section, but heres my collection of RE games (except not pictured my PS1 RE games, RE0 and OutBreak 1 & 2) and then obviously the PSN downloads and Code Veronica/RE4 for GoD.

Love the whole "Only for Gamecub" disclaimer on RE4, man I was pissed when it was announced on PS2.

RE2 is the best game in the series just out of memory. Today it would be terribly dated but back then it was a masterpiece.

RE1 Remake and RE4 duke it out for second place

His voice was the deal sealer. I would try to psych myself up so I would pause and think,"Ok you got this, he's ugly,slow,and probably hasn't gotten laid ever in his life. Time to own this loser:woop:"
*Unpause* All I had to hear was,".....STAAaaahhhrrrrrzzz".

Resident Evil 4 special edition... I am jealous....

AltruismIsDead

Resident Evil 4 special edition... I am jealous....

Honestly it's nothing much to be jealous about, I believe it was amongst one of the first "Special Edition" games to be released, before everything had a special edition for it. So it's not going to have anything too good in it.

All that it is, is a metal tin, a laser cell/lithograph picture of Leon and a small RE prologue that gives a small history of each of the RE games.

OT: Anyways, it seems like all my friends that have played RE pretty much agree that normally the first RE game you play is generally your favorite, and for some odd reason even though RE4 & 5 were good games, they just weren't either scary, or with the change of gameplay, never quite felt like RE games but more or less action suspense games.

That and it seems ever since RE4 came out, the rise in Resident Evil experts has increased. Especially when I browse the forums and see people being called "noobs" for wanting infinite ammo, hell I remember blasting my way through the first RE just so I could get the rocket launcher with infinite ammo. To me it just made going through the game again more fun.

RE4 wasn't scary? You weren't freaked out by the Regenerators, U3, or when Verdugo starts to chase you in the sewers? You have no fear my friend.

I do agree though that going through the game again with infinite ammo or really good weapons is fun. That's the only reason I'm even trying to beat professional on RE4 right now, so I can get the P.R.L. 412 and use it on my completed Normal playthrough to breeze through, and eventually save enough money to get the Chicago Typewriter and Infinite Rocket Launcher.

RE5 was super fun I thought with infinite ammo. Especially with the M500. Just KABOOM and down they go! It's pretty satisfying, especially when you get to those parts that were extremely difficult and being able to just say "screw you" and oust them in one shot.

Unfortunately I didn't find it scary at all :( I guess the only couple of parts that I can recall from first playing it that creeped me out was the parts towards the end. Can't remember exactly, but it was the area with some prison cells and a regenerator. You open up the this dumpster and there is basically a body bad inside that starts wiggling. Then since you reminded me the part with Verdugo was pretty creepy.

But I never really had the same feeling of "ah crap, I only have 6 bullets left, I really don't want to go around the corner..." like previous RE games made me feel.

Also environments have a lot to do with it. Games like Dead Space don't scare me at all, just because I am not really into outerspace/spaceship/sci-fi. To me I couldn't really "get into" and immerse myself into that type of fiction. Then same with Dead Space and RE4, you never really feel like you run out of ammo and have to really conserve it (until you're finished with a boss fight) and there really isn't any penalty for dying. But with just playing RE4 on 360 it honestly didn't scare me or creep me out playing through it this last time around. Wow... talk about a long explanation! :p

But I completely agree, the infinite ammo is awesome on both RE games. And playing Co-op on 5 was hella fun. Still the best was RE4 on the Wii with the Chicago Typewriter, sure it didn't have to reload, was automatic and super powerful, but something about that gun just makes it extremely fun to use.

I still find infinite ammo so much fun on RE games and wish more had it. Not for actually completing the games but for future playthroughs.

As much as I found the CT and Handcannon fun, I really just wanted infinite ammo for the normal weapons to enjoy shooting the hell out of bad guys with the TMP or the Riot Gun fully upgraded and not a care in the world.

I loved the infinite ammo option in RE5 (though carrying it over to the next difficulty seemed cheap) and I remember playing the mercenaries game in RE3 for the infinite ammo options just to have loads more fun capping zombies in the head, ditto for RE2's infinite SMG, Minigun and Launcher.

never managed to get the infinite launcher in RE1, missed out by about 4 minutes and never even tried in CVX.

Resident Evil 2 FTW!
It was the first game I got together with the original PlayStation and I still think it was the best in the series! I loved the fact that you had to play through the game twice to get the full story from two different perspectives (Leon and Claire), playing the first half as Leon and the second half as Claire and then start again, but the other way round.

Oh, the memories...

Resi2 all day, every day. Genius game. I will however give significant props to the original (Cube version is better IMO) and Resi4 for it's innovation. I still can't believe CV has no votes...that game doesn't get enough credit. Resi5 is the worst one on this list by far, followed by Resi0. Resi5 was fun but NOT a good RE game. Resi3 was good too but gets forgotten.

I'd say Nemesis for the sheer fun of being Jill with a huge B.O.W chasing you around the undead city, the fact that he can follow you ANYWHERE gets me every time.

Also, TC you made a typo with Resident Evil 2's name. ^^

this actually happens in RE2 scenario B too. a monster/creature called MR. X drops from the sky the same way as nemesis and chases the character through that scenario of the game. he looks very very similar minus the whole arm grabbing mutation thing. he also drops items the same way as nemesis does when you defeat him if i can remember it correctly. now that i think about it scenerio b of RE2 paved RE3's way in a huge huge way.

It's always been RE4 for me. You're right though, the earlier Resident Evil's were far scarier, but it's kind of difficult to vote on this since the later games have the advantage of better technology. It's hard to say that a really old game is better then a more recent one. RE5 would have been #1, because co-op was a brilliant addition and it really improved on everything that RE4 had, but it had no element of fear in it and the fact that enemies eventually had guns tried to make the game into something it shouldn't be. It was no longer "survival horror." RE4 at least had some scary moments (Regenerators scared the shit out of me when I first played it, and so did U3.)

RE6, wherever they take it, should be open world with quests or maybe in this case "missions." I always thought that would put the RE series back on top. If they just made the next game scary like it should be, kept the same gameplay elements (and put the Attache Case and Merchant back in) and added open world, damn that would be sweet.
you cant base a comparison on whether the technology is better as time goes on. as all games are technically better then they were in 2005 for example, you have to base your decision on how it made you feel at the time, which is why i still have legend of zelda ocarina of time as my all time no.1 game, and its why the original resident evil is the best game in the series no doubt. that pure mixture of frightening exhileration and tense combat is something i cannot forget, and no game has ever matched that, altho silent hill homecoming has come close. when u first encounter the running zombie as you go into the crypt after placing the arrowhead on the grave is the most frightening thing i ever experienced has a survival horror virgin at the time. just awesome sauce.

the rsident evil 2 box cover of the decrepit zombie face was the best one, i think i bought it with saved pocket money for £50 on n64 at the time, and my mum saw the box and made me take it back the same, day was soo gutted! had to wait until it came out on gamecube before i could buy it again haha! still got my whole resi collection of games plus the majority of RE4 figures including a regenerator in thermal mode, looks awesome!

For me, my favorite is Resident Evil 5. I absolutely love horror movies, but when it comes to video games, I am the biggest wuss. I remember my brother and I trying Zero, and I saw the first zombie. I paused the game, set the controller down, and said "I'm done." Dead Space 2 is the only horror game I've ever beaten, and from what I understand, people don't find it all that scary. 5 was the first one I really got into, I absolutely love co-oping with my brother, no matter how many times I beat it, I never tire of it. I just bought 4 because I love 5 so much, and so far it's great.

The original Resident Evil is the best one. That's not an opinion that's a fact.

It goes:
RE1
RE(directors cut)
RE2/RE3
RE3/RE2
RE4
Code Veronica
RE5

RE2... I used to play this on PS1 when I was young. I didn't have a memory card so I would have to start from the beginning every time. Loved the sound, this game was suspense and horror!

I think people say RE4, and RE5 is the best simply because they like a game to be made easy for them without a real challenge. Classic RE games are the real Resident Evil. 4&5 didn't have the horror. I think its funny too how they say "oh man the controls for RE1-3 are terrible" thats how they should be, not a easy control scheme where anybody could play. Resident Evil Remake is the best out there and nothing will ever top it.

idk resident evil outbreak file #2 was the l4d of the ps2, that's pretty hard to beat. Plus it had a zombie elephant

Mine is RE5, simply cause of the great XBL times on the game with friends.

Resident Evil 2...closely followed by 3. Both blew my mind when I first played them many many years ago....

Resident Evil 4. Many of the games listed are almost just as awesome for me, but RE4 was my first Resident Evil game... That's something hard to forget. :)

what, no RE6?! that one will be, judging by how its coming along. i mean, Chris and Leon? in the same game? SIGN ME UP!

jokes aside, RE4 probably has to be mine. the biggest problem i have with the older games is, in hindsight the controls are honestly not the best compared to the newer games. RE4's controls overhaul bringing it to a modern shooter really helped, RE5 made them even better IMO. having the camera behind the character rather than up above just makes things a lot simpler to get used to, in a game where you have to worry about rotating the character and using up to move forward. im still one of the few that liked RE5 though im sure, even though it feels far from RE, especially with it being mostly daylight the whole time, and having a partner always with you.

the only ones i have yet (of the main series at least) to beat are RE3 and Code Veronica. im working on CV right now and maybe sometime i will track down RE3 on PC or GC, or perhaps download it whenever i get a PS3. would be sweet if it was released on 360 too in the same fashion as CV and RE4.

Resident Evil 4 and 5 are my favourite games.

Resident Evil 4 just contains everything necessary. It has some kind of action, but not too much like in RE 5. You´ll also have some scary moments and you lack easily of amma if you´re not careful. Thar all together with an awesome story in RE style.

RE 5 isn´t a real Resident Evil anymore in my opinion. But the coop setting is just kinda awesome. So it became one of my favorite coop games together with Obscure 1 & 2 ;)

Probably RE4, it's great. 2 and 3 aren't far behind, mainly because of nostalgia.

Hard to decide. It's a toss up between RE1 and RE4. RE1 may have had some crappy actors, but it's what got me hooked on the series. RE4 was just awesome minus Ashley screaming for Leon all the time.

How the hell is 4/5 got any votes? nothing in 4 was scary, completly ruined the franchise, 5 was a utter joke. re0-3 were great, code veronica was fun.

Those of you saying RE4 are quite obviously not true fans of the series. Yeah, it's a great game but it's not Resident Evil. Take out Leon and Ada and its a completely different game. So how dare most of you vote for it. My favourite game is REmake, great game, lots of tension and jumps and LisanTrevor is the best villain in the entire sereis

Agreed resident evil 4 was 'fun' but it clearly wasn't a proper resident evil game which is why I count resident evil 4/5/6 as filler. :drunk

The REmake is easily my favourite - top notch audio/visual design and ruddy terrifying at times.

I'd say my top 5 are as follows:

1. REmake
2. RE4
3. REvelations
4. RE2
5. RE3 (though sometimes I think I prefer Code Veronica, lol)

Probably Resident Evil:Nemesis for me because I remember when I got that game when it was out. It really freaked me out when Nemesis burst through the window and chased you in station. XD

Resident Evil 3 for me, as well. Nemesis, much like Pyramid Head in Silent Hill 2, provided me with so many genuine scares, panic attacks, etc... Survival horror at its best. :)

Remake is my favourite one just the atmosphere and soundtrack, those camera angles omg im going to play it today.Resi 3 aswell scares the shit out of me Nemesis always catches me off guard and the Zombies in this one were relentless so many in some areas.

Resident evil 2 and 3 for me love those games.
I never goy to play the resi 1 remake because that was exclusive to gamecube for god knows what reason. Hope they put that game in hd for newer consoles.

Same with outbreak. That would be such a good game in hd with the online put in

Easily 4. It's the best when the transition from Survival Horror to Action Horror started, and they kept a lot of the things I enjoyed. Mostly the limited storage space, sized weapons and addons with the ability to upgrade said space, rather than just RE5s, "Everything is now the same size and takes 1 square, so the minigun is the same size as this egg."

Resident Evil 4, then Resident Evil 2. When I was a kid I watched my cousin play and I was terrified when Leon sees the Licker for the first time

I really want a well made HD port of the RE: remake, its the best Resident evil game ever. Tension, atmosphere, right amount of shooting, great game design. Crimson heads were nasty if you let them rise up

RE2 and 3 are all time classics. RE-zero is really good. CV is good although has bad bits like the boss fight in the fog and the bit where you have to smash the glass cannonball with those tank controls.

I liked RE4 despite the shift to more action, it still had tension & atmosphere but it also sent the series to slow, shitty death of more shooting, QTE shite. RE5 was poor it did more of everything that was naff about 4, also it forced you to have a dumb AI partner who will let her self get killed and waste ammo!.

RE6 - just shit. Dumber and bigger than 5

Revelations is mostly good, some levels felt like a survival horror games and then they throw in some "shoot everything" for the shooter game

It was a tough decision but had to go with Resi 2 that game was a masterpiece back in the day, must have completed it at least 10 times.
