Forums - Gaming Discussion - Odds vs. Evens: Resident Evil (Redux)

 

Best group of Resident Evil games?

Odd-numbered 3 15.00%
 
Even-numbered 15 75.00%
 
It's a tie! 2 10.00%
 
Total:20

So about four years ago, I created a thread asking folks to choose either the odd-numbered or even-numbered Resident Evil games. And I kind of cheated by lumping in RE0 with the even group. With Resident Evil 8 now out in the wild, I thought it would be fun to try this experiment again.

Here's the question: if you could only play one grouping of RE games, would it be the odd-numbered installments or the even-numbered installments? And why?

Odd-numbered RE games Even-numbered RE games
Resident Evil (1996/2002) Resident Evil 2 (1998/2019)
Resident Evil 3: Nemesis (1999/2020) Resident Evil 4
Resident Evil 5 Resident Evil 6
Resident Evil 7 (Biohazard) Resident Evil 8 (Village)

Without RE8, I'd already pick even because of 2 and 4. The addition of RE8 solidifies the victory for even-numbered Resident Evil games.



Signature goes here!

Yeah, the even ones. Thats easy. My top 3 RE games are RE4, RE2R and RE8.

Pretty much this.

A bonus to have RE8 in this group since it seems like the most fun to replay since RE4.



I'll keep the combo going.

The even-numbered group remains my favorite. 2, 4, and 8 are among my top 4 favorite RE games, so this is actually easier than last time.

Well, RE0 is my favorite, so even numbers. If we can count that, if not then, I don't really care. Both, even and odd will be fine.



Easily even. Res 2 Remake, 4, 8, and yes, even 6, are all good games imo. On the other hand I didn't like Res 1 remake, Res 3 Remake, Res 5, or Res 7 all that much. So it's 4 good even games vs 4 meh odd games for me. Funny how both Star Trek movies and Res games suffer from this even-odd dilemma for me. 



Odd, no question.



I've played REmake, REmake 2, RE1, and RE2, and a little bit of RE3, in that order.
So far I'd say REmake > RE2 > REmake 2 > RE3 > RE1, so right now I'm kind of neutral on the topic.

I'll get back to this thread when I finish 3 and play 4, 7, 8, 0 and Code Veronica.

Someday you will die somehow 

And something's gonna steal your carbon 

RE1 is my fav RE game, and if Code Veronica was named correctly as the 3rd title than odds for sure. But its honestly a hard choice. RE1 and 7 are amazing games while RE2 and 4 are also amazing games. I consider a draw lol
