Best Resident Evil Games

The Top Ten

1 Resident Evil 4

By the way,Krauser is the best character of the series.

The best thing about this game is that there's a gun, with infinite frigging bullets! how cool is that!

Reason why re4 is the best the merchant just that

I have played all Resident Evil Games but this one is special. The game scenarios are depicted beautifully. You feel like you are in a village. The zombies look more like real people. Leon as a typical hero. The story was great too. The weather in this game is always foggy or misty which add to the horror. You feel the fear if you playing it for the first time. The story divided into three parts:Village, Castle, Island. The castle is depicted beautifully. Finally, no one forgets the Merchant(What are you BUYING, stranger). Its like this game took place in a fantasy place. Resident Evil 5 may look more realistic but that just kills the fear and fun part.

2 Resident Evil 3: Nemesis

I like this game but sometimes it can be very tricky because sometimes you need to find stuff to move on and some monsters are just disgusting almost makes me puke besides that it's a good resident evil game

There's nothing to discuss. RE3 is by far the best "resident evil" game...

Best from the whole franchise!

Worst re game ever

3 Resident Evil 2

This is truly the best resident ever, 4 scenarios, interesting story, difficult enemies, terrifying scenes and music and the best character of the entire franchise, hint: is Leon

Better than 3 and re 7 sucks

Leon's beginning, The Best character in the Resident Evil series. He is so good he is mentioned in games he is not in. For example, Resident evil 5 "not like any zombie I've ever seen its like the Kennedy report" or Resident Evil Code Veronica X "She sent Leon an email and he sent chris."

Best game in the franchise by FAR!

4 Resident Evil (2002)

Amazing Resident Evil game! This is the scariest one in my opinions. From the setting to the crimson heads, Lisa Trevor, and the tyrant. Also, this has Jill, Chris, and Wesker in it.

#1 with awesome graphics

This one is the best resident evil ever

This game is sooo creepy because of crimson heads and lisa trevor.

5 Resident Evil (1996)

Great Game, Bad Voice Acting, Awesome Soundtrack! - VenomxShocker

6 Resident Evil: Revelations

I like the story but one of the worst Multiplayers. I can't Wait To Play as Claire Redfield in Resident Evil Revelations 2

7 Resident Evil 6

Underrated,that's all I have to say.

This game isn't as bad as everybody thinks it is.

With the new controls weapons gameplay and story this is the best

I think this resident evil sucks and resident evil 5 is better

8 Resident Evil 5

This or Revelations 2 is the best game. This one is awesome. Its not a scary game its more about the action. You know? How a game is suppose to be. If you are looking for horror then go watch a movie.

It is good and fun and I like the re4 controls that they got right BUT this game is really missing horror its not scary at all and the inventory sucks you have to change weapons in mid-game

The one that started the whole multi player sensation

This one is the best! Next is resident evil 6. but that's my opinion ^_^

9 Resident Evil: Code Veronica

Not really my favorite my uncle loves this game!

Best story of any of the classic RE games. - Darth-Snorpy

Should be rated higher then most it's the best.

RE : CV is the best ever

10 Resident Evil: Revelations 2

Oh God, this game is simply great! Much better than RE5 or first part of RE: Revelations. Moira is one of the best characters from all Resident Evil franchise.

One of the best 'newly-styled' Resident Evil up there. Returning well-know characters incl Barry Burton (he rockx! ), great mood, intresting levels and "rottens" are one of the creepiest enemies in the whole series - looks alost ac creepy like zombies from REmake!

The Contenders

11 Resident Evil 7: Biohazard

Now, I admit that this is the only Resident Evil game that I have played, so I'm not the person to ask which game in the franchise is my favourite. However, what I do find supprising was the fact that as I am currently typing this Resident Evil 6 is currently ranked higher than Resident Evil 7. I have never played the sixth game so I can't weigh in my opinion here, but based on all the criticism that Resident Evil 6 gets I am suppressed it is ranked higher. In my opinion, I felt this was a fantastic game that made me feel multiple emotions while playing, and was just generally fun to play. I also connected with the characters and SPOILERS, I felt sorry for all of the characters except for Lucas, as he was a despicable person. Overall, I wish that I could erase my memories of the game so I could play the game again for and experience all those emotions again. Excellent work Capcom, keep it up.

This game is severely underrated. It brought horror back into the series and introduced some great enemies other than the molded. It brings back memories of the original with some quirky interesting moments.

Re7 best game best gameplay best story amazing game 10/10 best horror game

Needs to be at least 8 or 9
