3. RE:CV
4. RE:0
5. RE3R

I didn't want to play it for the longest time because I wasn't digging the first person view and all the VR talk (I don't have a PSVR) but when I did come around to it, I absolutely loved it. It's a very strong title closer to the original 3 than 4 to 6. Judging by your ranking of the games in the series, you'd like it (no zombies to be found though).

The first person part isn't a dealbreaker for me. I do prefer 3rd person games, but Dying Light is in 1st person and I loved that game (and am really looking forward to the sequel!).

Not really interested in the whole premise of the game though. Going round an abandoned house while being hunted by a family of cannibals just isn't my cup of tea. Plus I don't really like horror games either, so even if it is scary that doesn't really appeal to me.

I played 7 shortly after it came out on the tv, and thought it was good but not top notch.  Better than 5/6 for sure.  A year later when I got the PSVR cheap, I played it again in VR and was blown away.  In VR it's close to a 10, in non vr its a 7.  I would say its worth a play through, and has some great characters.  The last section drags on a bit.

Around the Network

1. Resident Evil 5 really like the co op feature, like wepons list has the best mercenaries mode own it on three different systems.
2. Resident Evil 4 still my favorite GameCube game.
3. Resident Evil 2 one of my favorite PS1 game
4. Resident Evil 3
5. Resident Evil 1 Remake
6. Resident Evil 0
7. Resident Evil 1 and 1 Directors Cut one of my favorite early PS1 games
8. Resident Evil 6 weak story and too many QTE

Barely played RE2 Remake but I guess it would be near the top of the list once I'm finished it. Haven't played RE 3 Remake but going to get it eventually. Have no interest in ever playing RE7.


6 plays better than 0 but 0 has a more RE feeling to it.

never played 7.








I don't want to rank RE6. It's like Street Fighter The Movie the Game on Saturn. RE6 is the Paul S Anderson Movie the game version of RE.
