Day 1: Favorite RE game——Resident Evil 4
Well, this is an easy question. Without a doubt, my favorite in the series is Resident Evil 4. Why? Because it was a revolution in its time.It was such a powerful game that its influence could be seen up until the present time—more or less 8 years from its release (i.e. Over-the-shoulder camera angle, influence on the survival-horror genre, etc). RE 4 was a marvel, and, if I may say so so, quite a saving grace for the series.
The past decade saw the fall of the old-time legends of videogames (Crash Bandicoot, etc.) and the rise of new ones. It was a changing (and exciting) time for the videogame industry, but were also grueling for the brands (and game companies) that failed to adapt to the trend. And it was certainly Resident Evil 4 that had made the Resident Evil series still a well-known name in the genre.
I’m not saying that it’s the best game from the series, for that pegged question is up for subjective arguments; All I’m saying is that it was a way for Capcom to raise its notch once again and to keep the logo Resident Evil alive and kicking, especially during those arbitrary times.
And to a personal note, I think RE 4 brandished the best mix between Horror and Action——my only sort-of wish is that they should have also revived and used the tricky and wonderful puzzle system of the previous titles. But that’s wishful thinking, I guess.
And to a more personal note, RE 4 was the one that introduced me to the horror-genre of videogames. And to it I owe my love for the said genre, and for the series as well!
I just want to share with you guys my favorite fanvid for Ada <3
