1. Resident Evil 4
“The Resident Evil series is widely accepted as the progenitor of survival horror, building on the foundation laid by the original Alone in the Dark and Capcom’s very own horror RPG, Sweet Home. However, it was Resident Evil 4 that resurrected the series and, for better or worse, brought it into a very different direction. No matter how you feel about what RE4 did to encourage the following titles in the series, the level of inspiration this game had on the industry as a whole, is monumental. The shift to the over the shoulder point of view was groundbreaking and is evident in many games that came after, such as Gears of War and Dead Space.” – Nick Grave from the Top 10 Sequels That Completely Changed The Franchise.
