Ranking the best Resident Evil games


Ever since Shinji Mikami’s Resident Evil game came out in 1996, the Resident Evil franchise has become a worldwide hit due to its great survival horror gameplay and exciting action. And given the series’ success, plenty of Resident Evil games have hit the shelves since the original game took the world by storm in the 90’s.

But which of these is the best and which the worst? These games have been enjoyed by millions of players to date, so each gamer is likely to have a favourite, even if only one can be the best in the end. So without further ado, here follows a list of the Resident Evil games, ranked from worst to best.

13. Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City

This game let players see events from Umbrella Corporation’s perspective, but sadly just wasn’t a fun experience.


Although most games in the Resident Evil series have offered good entertainment to fans of action and horror video games, Capcom took a misstep with Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City, as it’s perhaps the only genuinely bad game to bear the Resident Evil name.

Because not only did Operation Raccoon City fail in terms of storyline, gameplay and atmosphere, as these were nowhere near the standard set by earlier games, the truth is that it simply wasn’t a fun game to play either. Also, the game’s computer-controlled teammates suffered from dimwit AI, and Operation Raccoon City’s menagerie of braindead, bullet-soaking enemies like zombies and lickers were just not fun to take down either. At least some of the multiplayer modes provided a dose of entertainment, but this is clearly a game most Resident Evil fans likely prefer to forget about.
