    The first three are some of my favourite PS1 titles. Mainly the first two. Nemesis was great but got boring near the end of the game when your playing as Carlos. Code Veronica was ok. Resident Evil 4 was good but Im a RE traditionalist and prefer the first three titles more. While Resident Evil 4 had superior gameplay it lost the atmosphere that was present in the first three titles. It also pissed me off that half the game was you escorting a useless human being.

    Im such a loser I did a speedrun of the first game. I was proud of it but it was decimated by other speedruns online.

    yea, i would agree that, although it has good gameplay, there is nothing spooky about number 4. its just a regular action game

    I enjoyed RE4 more than the previous games in the series. If atmosphere has to be sacrificed for a game I want to come back to then so be it.

    They're different kinds of scary. The originals are more of a "Oh, Jesus, I hope there isn't a zombie hiding behind this corner" kind of scary. 4 is more of a "HOLY A GIANT TENTACLE JUST CAME SHOOTING OUT OF THAT GUY'S NECK" kind of scary. :P

    You've got it all wrong. Resident Evil 4 is a comedy.

    I love the main RE games. Well, and Code Veronica. Though I have a hard time going back to the old ones after playing 4.

    But, you know... Okay, I never thought I would agree with anything X-Play ever said, but they once stated "There is no reason this game can't be twice as well written as it is." It was about a different game, but it's true. What's with all the hammy dialogue. I could write better than that.

    I own RE1, 2, and 4. All awesome games

    Like roto said, comparing 4 to the others isn't going to get you anywhere, but in terms of 'smurf YEAH I JUST KNEECAPPED A MONK WITH A MOTHERsmurfING SHOTGUN THEN SUPLEXED HIM AND HIS HEAD SPLATTED OVER THE FLOORS' value RE4 just snuffs it as my favourite one.

    RE2 was similarly awesome and my second favourite, but giving you a small army's worth of handgun ammo right at the start made it a bit too easy.

    RE1 is the only game thats ever given me the chills (I haven't played silent hill yet lol), probably because it was so damn hard. I got as far as the catacombs before realising I'd missed getting the DOOM BOOK I at the start of the game, and had to run the half mile back to the mansion and look through every single room for it, being forced to kill every monster that was in there.


    So yeah, I feel like getting RE3 now

    Resident Evil 4 is the best game in the series in my opinion. I still have yet to buy it but I've finished it countless times...like 5.

    The remake of the first was amazing because it played up the tension so much and added amazing graphics to it. It was one of the few games that was hard for me to play just because I felt like a nervous wreck the whole time - I knew the layout of the original game, but it changes that up a lot (especially with scripted events), and you really have to dodge the zombies actively or else face a crimson head later in the game.

    Resident Evil is a brilliant series. Still gotta play CV, though. It's the only one that's evaded me all these years.

    It used to be a great series, The game died when they shoved out 4, they should of left it at CV, with UC tieing up the lose ends.
