5. Resident Evil (Remake)
Ah, the classic Resident Evil – one of the PlayStation’s most iconic titles and one of the fathers of survival horror. With the Remastered Edition, fans received a beautiful upgrade to the original pixelated graphics of the classic. To make the deal sweeter, the Remastered Edition performed much better than the original, and surpassed the expectations and hopes of many Resident Evil fans. Where the remake succeeded in redefining the original Resident Evil, the remastered edition improved upon that success. Who needs a Jill sandwich, anyway?
4. Resident Evil Code: Veronica X
A game that originally graced the Sega Dreamcast (yeah, I know), Resident Evil Code: Veronica X performed extremely well on the PS2 and GameCube. The story returns to Claire Redfield and features a fresh cast of friends and villains and includes some familiar faces (a badass Wesker, in particular). Presenting a new twist on the Resident Evil storyline, Code: Veronica X served as a sort of cult hit of the Resident Evil franchise.
3. Resident Evil 2
“Taking place two months after the mansion incident, unlucky newcomers Leon S. Kennedy, a rookie cop and Claire Redfield, sister of previous survivor Chris Redfield, make their way into the freshly flesh ravenous Raccoon City. No sooner than they meet do they find themselves separated after a quick escape turns to a near fatal car crash. Taking control, players now find themselves alone, surrounded by flames with the undead closing in.” – Full review by Nick Grave.
