Resident Evil first debuted for the Playstation in March 1996. Me and my brother played this around 1998. Remember the first zombie encounter FMV sequence? I couldn't sleep for a week, all thanks to that.
My brother played Chris. Being a total noob with the controls, we died screaming at the first encounter. We were both embarrassed that we died. We got used to the usual Super Nintendo controls. This was all alien to us. We started again from the beginning and made sure what we knew what every button did before we slash the crap out of the zombie. We died, still, but hey, practice makes perfect. We finished the game in 4 hours.

Going back to the Resident Evil franchise, a Director's Cut version was released a year later, adding some updates such as autoaim, item placement and even an updated character wardrobe. Then the Dual Shock version that added, well duh, vibration and teasers for Resident Evil 2. It was then followed by the Sega Saturn and PC version.
Then came the remake, the Gamecube version. It was released in 2002, showed better visuals, updated gameplay, items and story.
|SNAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA-- oh, different game. (Gamecube version. notice the pixels?)|
13 years later, they released the REMASTERED (the current) version. Now they have updated everything and turned it to HD. Better visuals, sound, items. Better EVERYTHING.
The hugely popular Resident Evil series, having sold over 61 million units to date, returns to its roots with a remastered version of the critically acclaimed masterpiece, Resident Evil Remake. Originally released in 1996 for PlayStation 1, Resident Evil was then “remade” in 2002 for Nintendo GameCube.
Rebuilt from the ground up with stunning new visuals, new gameplay elements, new environments and new story details while retaining the survival horror atmosphere the series had become synonymous for, Resident Evil Remake gave a whole new generation of fans a taste of what made Resident Evil great, in better form than ever before.
Both fans of the franchise who want a trip down memory lane and those who have yet to experience the game that coined the term survival horror for the gaming world will appreciate this definitive re-visit of that iconic 2002 Resident Evil title.
Speaking of zombie corpse, HERE is a deadlier update! (Old PS version didn't have this) Leaving these zombies' dead bodies behind will somehow turn them into these fierce, angry Crimson Heads. They're faster and they would seek their revenge on you for killing them. Unless you blow their heads off or burn their bodies with fuel and of course, a lighter.
The remastered version even added additional areas, puzzles and a boss! But I won't tell you about it. I hate giving out spoilers. Hint: It's freaking horrifying!
Want some screenshots? Here you go!
P.S. The game doesn't include the classic one. But it would've been awesome if they did.
|"Stop! Don't open that door!" I remember how sucky these voice actors were. (Resident Evil, Playstation)|
|They talk better here. And oh my, those visuals.|
|Plus the lightning effect. Magical.|
|If you don't have this. Good luck.|
|"Hope it's not Chris' blood!" too bad they changed Barry's line here|
|This is the place everybody hates.|
|Do you know why I took a screenie of this? Do you? Do you?|
|"I may not look next-gen, but I am enough to tear your ear off!"|
|Ooooh new BSAA costumes!|
This is a must play. Old and new gamers will definitely enjoy this remastered classic.
