what is RE but a tribute to B movies? B movies with zombies that eat your flesh and zombie dogs that bite you and turn you into a zombie yourself and with an evil mad scientist who has a giant zombie in the basement? i mean, hell, the president orders a nuclear strike on an american city, how B movie can you get?
RE1's bad voice acting completed the B movie feel. it was JUST like the real thing.
RE1 had the simplistic feel of a film entirely about zombies. the others added conspiracy and action-film elements. not to say they were bad... in fact, code veronica was my personal favorite (very creepy... i think only the RE1 remake on gamecube will surpass the creepiness). but RE1 was what made survival horror what it is today.
of course, RE isn't scary as a whole, except for a few choice moments, mostly in RE1 and RE:CV (i have yet to play gun survivor, but i will even if it didn't get good reviews) but it's a blast to play.
i'm working through RE3 right now, which i look as the third disc to RE2. :P
nemesis = aidswhore. he does NOT play fair. where the hell does he get that damn rocket launcher, it looks 50 years old.
scariest game i ever played = silent hill 1. that game disturbs my sleep. and i don't ever have nightmares.
