With Resident Evil 6 hitting stores later this year, it’s fitting to revisit the franchise and have a look back at the games that made Resident Evil a popular name. From a simple mansion exploration to ass-kicking in Africa, the Resident Evil games have plenty of varied settings and also have a variety of mainstay characters that have become synonymous with the series. A word of notice here that this list may contain SPOILERS for the games. Enough of that for the intro, let’s get into the list:
7. Resident Evil 3: Nemesis
Starting off our list is the third game in the series, Resident Evil 3: Nemesis. The most memorable aspect of this game was the inclusion of Nemesis, a giant tyrant-like monster that would chase you around as you explored areas. You played primarily as Jill Valentine, a returning character from Resident Evil 1, wearing a slightly sexier tube top compared to her S.T.A.R.S. uniform in the original game.
Whilst a lot of people point to Resident Evil 4 as being the first title in the RE universe to embrace the ‘action’ genre, RE3 was a small step in that direction anyway. Not only was there the chase sequences with Nemesis, players also had the ability to dodge attacks and quickly turn 180-degrees. All of which were new to the series.
RE3′s plot centers around Jill basically trying to escape from Raccoon City. She meets a few other survivors along the way, and depending on player choices, can receive one of two different endings. Regardless of choice though, Raccoon City will still be decimated by a nuclear missile.
Overall, RE3 was a bit lackluster. Aside from Nemesis chasing you around, the game doesn’t have many other memorable moments; unlike the previous two games. The gameplay and puzzles were similar too, but the game lacked the same drive that pushed gamers to enjoy the earlier entries.
