Resident Evil is still one of my favorite game series' that exist. Over the years though, it has really lost it's 'Survival Horror' roots and has become more of a shooter. The first game was filled with cheezy voice overs and clunky controls, but still was a lot of fun. At the time it was scary, but then other games really trampled it on horror. Resident Evil was starting to lose it's horror edge, then this game came around.
