The Resident Evil ThREad
 
I was wanting to do a thread similar to adamclark's "History of Final Fantasy" thread, but just didn't feel I'd have the time or patience to commit to it... so why not just make a thread about Resident Evil for everyone to discuss :)

I recently picked up the DS port of the first Resident Evil, and besides the terrible dialog and backtracking, this was such a classic game and such a great start to one of the most entertaining video game series' ever (IMO). It really gave you the feeling of doom when you'd be out of ammo adn green herbs and all you could do was run through each hallway in hope that no zombies would catch you!

My first Resident Evil game was Code Veronica for the Dreamcast when I was like 12 and it scared me WAY too badly that I eventually returned it. Now that I'm not as much of a big babby with scary videogames, I'd like to give the RE series a try again, but the old ones aren't on consoles that I have.

:lol: Code Veronica kicked so much ass... and was definitely creepy as fuck! That dude... Alfred was it? (the guy who dressed as his sister)... yeah... that was so funny, but so WTF at the same time... and Wesker kicked ass (forgot if he was in the original DC version, but definitely was CV:X on PS2)

My step-dad had a Gamecube and he had RE:4 and that seemed pretty fun. If I was to go back and play one, it'd probably be 4.

Being the huge pussy I am I was done with Resident Evil after that part in RE2 when the "licker-zombie" jumped through the one-way mirror.

The controls also killed me and the ammo issue.

I prefer PG-rated games with cute Moogles, buxom dimwits and stock dialogue.

The part that always scared the hell out of me as a kid was when you had to take the key off of Forest's (the guy who was pecked to death by crows) body in RE1.

Oh, and Hunters. When you return to the mansion after destroying Plant 42 and you know there's going to be Hunters... fffffffuuuuuuuuuu

Thanks for the reminder... I just got to Plant 42 :eyes:
Having some issues finding the chemicals to mix to kill him.... hope emptying out the flooded basement didn't ruin my chances! (its been years since I've played this....)

Richard's death scene will forever go down as one of the most awkward back and forth moments in video game history :lol:
