Resident Evil / Biohazard Capcom / Virgin 1997

The original Playstation game that sparked the popularity of the series was an amazing achievement gameplay wise. It breathed new air into the survival horror genre started by the Alone In The Dark games and sold millions of copies in its first few months. It was ported to the PC a year and a half later. Set in a secret mansion laboratory, the tense feeling of the game was heightened by the mansions claustrophobically tight and narrow corridors which left little margin of error when attempting to evade zombies. The limited ammount of ammo in the game meant that you often avoided encounters with zombies and rationed your ammo carefully saving it for the larger creatures and the ink ribbons which were used to save the game on typwriters were in short supply and you had to be careful how often you saved. The unpredictability of what was going to happen next and the fear of being able to hear the heavy footsteps and breathing of mutant hunters just around the corner, not knowing when it would jump out added to the game's charm. Also graphically speaking the game was dazzling with lavish pre-rendered backdrops that added a certain touch of realism to the house. The large bosses such as the snake, giant plant and the Tyrant were graphical masterpieces and the lesser creatures such as the giant spiders, dogs, zombies and hunters were highly detailed and stunning. A movie was made years later out of this game which was not bad but could not capture the feeling that the game gives in encountering things on your own obviously, which makes the game much scarier.
