The Game Guy
The Resident Evil series has gone through a turbulent journey. It began with a slew of survival horror games for the Playstation 1 and 2. Following its early success, there have been Resident Evil games for nearly every console. Some have been multiplayer-based like Outbreak and even one that used a light gun called Dead Aim. Then, the series took a detour from that convolution with Resident Evil 4 for the GameCube, a game that is still widely regarded as the best in the series. Since then, the RE franchise has been more about action than scares.
Its most recent chapter, Resident Evil: Revelations for the 3DS, is the series’ first game for the handheld that is considered official RE canon. It was said that this game would return RE to its survival roots, which is true for about the first 30% of the story.
