Capcom invented the survival horror video game genre when Resident Evil was released for the original PlayStation in 1996. While the first game in the series had players solving clever puzzles to escape a mansion overrun with undead Dobermans, mutant plants, and mobs of voracious zombies, the series has since spread its biohazardous horror far beyond Raccoon City. Although you can count on every Resident Evil game to feature nasty monsters and a creepy underlying plot, each title has its own unique “flavor” to consider. For instance, some Resident Evil titles rely on fast-paced action, while others will have the players slowly creeping around to avoid being eaten alive.
