Best Video Games of 2005


The Top Ten

1 Resident Evil 4

This is a perfect action-adventure game for so many reasons. It modernizes and revolutionizes a classic horror franchise while making the atmosphere every bit as creepy and terrifying. It has some of the classic outlandishness and humor of a RE game. It's a game with so much nuance and detail. Every level feels handcrafted to perfection. It's linear enough for smooth pacing and progression but it's much more open than the later RE games. - marmalade_skies

Many resident evil fans find this game the best in the series. I love it too. Leon rocks here - Magnolia

Today. Still a great game. So classic that you can find this game in mine around the world!
