The History of ‘Resident Evil’ in Just 10 Minutes

There aren’t very many horror — or in this case, horror-ish — video game franchises that have been around long enough to weave a web as tangled as Resident Evil. It makes perfect sense that the situation would get as messy as it has when Capcom continues to take the hoarder’s approach to world-building by piling on one thing after another for just about twenty years now.

I can’t say that I’m very envious of the team who’s been tasked with finding a meaningful place to start building the inevitable seventh installment in the main series. Maybe this is why these remasters have yet to get on my nerves. They remind me of a simpler time, before Capcom strived for “complete global saturation.”

Next month will see the HD re-release of Resident Evil 0 (Jan 19), followed by the latest multiplayer spin-off that isn’t a third Outbreak game. Since the former is a prequel that’s set before the events in the original game, now is as good a time as any to see if we can’t sift through the past with a two-part Resident Evil retrospective.

    I like how the narrator sounds like the same from Resident Evil 2 also has some Steve Blum

  • Christian Michael Luciw

    Tons of info is left out or brushed over. Rebbeca Chambers barely got her name said and they doesnt tell who she is during the RE1 explaination…shame Capcom.

    • Agreed! I say we give them 2 out of 5 S.T.A.R.S.
