I've gone all in on Resident evil as of late, a series I wrote off as mediocre for many years and I'd like to assume that after the RE2 remake and the upcoming switch releasest, there are many more of you out there in the same boat.
The problem is the series spans 20 years and some titles are drastically different experiences and this being a gaming forum I'd hope ventrens would be kind enough to share thoughts on what games to play, in what order and what to avoid along with us newbies sharing what we have come upon so far and our feelings towards the various titles.
Regardless of my experience, what is your favourite RE game? What would you like to see remade? If you are a new comer will you be diving into the pile of prior titles?
My take, I played Re7 in VR last year and loved it, outside of VR it's a fun game but perhaps the best horror experience of all time in VR.
I then played the RE2 remake, liked it but gradually started to fall in love with it and I now think it's a masterpiece after platinuming it and playing all campaigns multiple times.
I then played the RE1 HD remake, I was not so impressed as I spent 4 hours trying to figure out two puzzles they were so obtuse. I like that in a way but progression is slow going and it lack moment to moment gameplay to make it feel as if the puzzle progression is worth it.
I am now currently playing Re4, 10 hours in and judging by trophies I'm nearing the end of the game or at least two thirds (took down Verdugo an hour ago) I'm thourally enjoying it with my complaint being exactly the opposite of Re2 HD as the moment to moment gameplay is fantastic nut the puzzle progression is lack muster albeit it does get better with time, yet lacks the feeling of tight level design as in Re2 and Re7.
I know to avoid Re5 as I played it before and gave up, it was boring at best and Re3 is out of the question as they are remaking it. What should I like up after Re4? 0, revelations, Code Veronica? Should I return to Re7 HD and give it a second chance, perhaps vendetta or something else I am missing?
