A current ballot in Japanese gaming rag Famitsu forward of the discharge of the Resident Evil 4 remake requested followers of the survival horror sequence to pick out their favourite character, in addition to probably the most detestable (through @bioranger_PT on Twitter (opens in new tab)). Albert Wesker unsurprisingly took the prize for many detestable, with Nicholai Ginovaef from RE3 in second place, and the Licker in third. Funnily sufficient, Wesker additionally rated within the favourite characters ballot, the place he positioned sixth.
Primary with a Red9 bullet was Leon Kennedy. He does rock a reasonably candy jacket, however I’ve by no means actually vibed with the man myself. I assume he made it on the power of peoples’ love for 2 of the video games he starred in, RE4 and RE2, which topped the part of Famitsu’s ballot for one of the best Resident Evil recreation. (RE4 got here in at primary, with RE2 Remake at quantity two, and authentic taste RE2 at quantity three.)
Leon’s co-star in RE2, Jill Valentine rated second place and the boulder-punching Chris Redfield got here in third. The most important shock is that Piers Nivans from RE6 appeared in any respect. He is above Hunk, whereas Barry Burton did not even get a point out. Tragic. This is how the complete high 10 broke down.
- 1 Leon Kennedy
- 2 Jill Valentine
- 3 Chris Redfield
- 4 Ada Wong
- 5 Claire Redfield
- 6 Albert Wesker
- 7 Ethan Winters
- 8 Rebecca Chambers
- 9 Piers Nivans
- 10 Hunk
The place Famitsu’s readers have been on level was with their collection of the scariest scene in Resident Evil, selecting the newborn monster sequence from Resident Evil Village. They’re proper, it is terrifying. The primary zombie encounter from the unique Resident Evil got here behind that, with being attacked by Mia in RE7 in third place.
In case you’re questioning why the canine leaping by way of the hallway window from the primary recreation did not price, that is as a result of it topped a separate query asking for probably the most shocking scene. The Tyrant encounter from RE2 Remake got here in second place there, with Village’s huge reveal in third. Different polls requested what probably the most interesting factor gamers regarded for in Resident Evil was (story received out over worry and character allure), and which recreation was the scariest (RE7).
Leon’s continued recognition is assured, with the Resident Evil 4 remake promoting three million copies in two days, one thing the unique took a complete yr to handle. It has been a essential success too, with our evaluate by Wealthy Stanton praising its exhilarating fight: “This has at all times been a recreation about crowd management: Retaining issues off your again, whittling down a seemingly unbeatable mob to its final member, gritting your tooth and blasting by way of a sea of our bodies and tentacles. The remake throws every little thing at you after which, when you’re gasping on the bottom, the kitchen sink sails by way of the air proper at your head.”
It is most likely time to replace our record rating the Resident Evil video games from worst to greatest then.
