OG 2. I like all the OG Resi games and their Remakes (besides REmake 3), but Outbreak file 1-2 hold a special place in my heart.

Shame Resident evil as a franchise is basically done for me after Remake 3, since they aren't going to bother remaking Outbreak or Code V, there's nothing really left for me that scratches my survival horror itch.

Code Veronica. For me that's the best re game in the seriess

As for my least favorite, it's probably Resident Evil 5. Yes, I had more fun with RE6 than RE5.

Does Sheva "here's some ammo so your inventory is full and can't pick up that green herb you desperately need to heal" have anything to do with that?

VII is much closer to 1-3 than 4-6. I put it off for a long time because of the first person perspective but was pleasantly surprised by it. VIII seems to be going for the same formula as VII.

-----------------------

As for my vote, it's Resident Evil 4 all the way, I've bought the game 3 times (GC, Wii and PC) and I'm sometimes tempted to buy it on Switch as well. It's such a great game with perfect pacing, amazing gameplay, fun characters that stills holds up very well today.

Second place would go to Resident Evil 2 (original and remake) then I have a soft spot for Resident Evil 5 because of how incredibly fun it was to play from start to finish with my brother. Finally, like I said earlier, I was very pleasantly surprised by VII.



Signature goes here!

It was part of the reasons, yeah.

At least in Resident Evil 6 you don't need to worry about your partner doing stupid things. Also, I enjoyed Leon's campaign a lot.

Since its the one I played the most I go with Resident Evil 5 but Resident Evil 4 is a close second looking forward to the remake since I'm skipping RE Village just like I skipped RE 7.

I just can't stand the 1st person view, and the whole "goo monsters" thing, along with ques taken from Texas Chainsaw massacre. It's got some puzzles and the like, but it just doesn't feel Resi to me, like the originals were. What I look for in a Resi game is more from the original series and Outbreak.

I also don't like the idea of a villain we can ogle our eyes over in what is meant to be a pure dreaded horror game, where you're actually meant to be scared, rather than "yeah baby, come to daddy, step on me!", and that's pretty much what I end up seeing around me (as well as my art circles I'm in on Discord, where some of my friends flat out draw the main boss of 8 in NSFW scenarios, which just makes me ask, "why?"). Like Resi 7, 8 looks to be putting me off the most, and if 8 sells well, then I can kiss anything else from the OG series coming back, goodbye (except 4, I never really cared for 4 as much as people do on here).
