Forums - Gaming Discussion - Rank the Resident Evil games

In honor of Resident Evil (HD) releasing tomorrow, I thought we could dedicate a thread to the series

Also, are you buying the game?

Pretty much this, but with RE5 added to the bottom. Never played any code: veronica stuff or the light gun wii games.

No, I'm not buying... I bought it.

I already pre-ordered for I could have both the PS3 and PS4 versions of the game, and a useless static PS3 theme that's only a picture of the mansion lobby, that you could already find on the net for free anyway.

It's already downloaded and now I have to wait until 12am to play it, which I think is utterly stupid. Rarely do I pre-order games. The last ones I did were Street Fighter III: Third Strike, and Bloodrayne: Betrayal.

I wouldn't have pre-ordered if not for the PS4 bonus, and I probably wouldn't have bought the game at all if not for it either, but hey. I hated the idea of perhaps one day getting the PS3 version and not having the PS4 version when I could have had both for 20 bucks.

If I waited a year, I'd probably save 10 bucks, but, that 10 bucks would go towards both versions in a sale, so, I wouldn't save anything. And, if it's less than that, I save like what? 2 dollars? 4 dollars? I'd rather have the game now, please.


Resident Evil 2

Resident Evil: Code Veronica X

Resident Evil 3

Resident Evil

Resident Evil 5...

I never played 4, and 5 was just an "ok" game.  Nor have I played 0.  Nor the remake.  I have code veronica X on PS3, but, I honestly haven't played it...  So, I just threw it in there.

Out of what I played

1. Resident Evil 4
2. Resident Evil (Remake)
3. Resident Evil 5
4. Resident Evil 6 (Mercenaries Mode Only, the actual game is crap, mercenaries mode + no mercy mode on PC is awesome though)
5. Resident Evil Mercenaries

6. Resident Evil 3

7. Resident Evil 2

8. Resident Evil 0
I think the stories are terrible in all of them, with pretty much the only scary one being Remake imo.

The characters are cute, and I like them all that I've payed.

I haven't played any of them in a while because I have no access to them. With that said, from what I remember:

[1] RE2
[2] RE3 Nemesis
[3] RE (1)
[4] RE Code Veronica X
[5] RE REmake
[6] RE The Dark Side Chronicles
[7] RE5
[8] Resident Evil The Umbrella Chronicles
[9] RE4

I plan on buying the HD Remake eventually but not at launch. I have too much to play at the moment. I'm a big fan of the classic games though

1. Resident Evil 2
2. Resident Evil 3
3. Resident Evil
4. Resident Evil Outbreak File 2
5. Resident Evil Outbreak
6. Resident Evil 6
7. Resident Evil 5
8. Resident Evil 4

Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018.
