When I first came to know about Resident Evil 4, I watched as the game being played. That was in 2005. I'm Spanish (from Spain), so I understood everything that was in Spanish. And my surname is Salazar hahaha! The last time I played RE 4 was last year.
Played it for most of 2009 when I owned my first copy but I started it in early 2007 through hire, Too good of a game to pass up, Hell i even went out of my way to purchase a brand new North American cover version because I liked the look so much.
Played it for about well 15 years maby? XD
I played it first on ps2 and replayed it many many many times, than on pc whit many mods, than on wii, than on ps3, than on my iPhone and than on ps4... I replayed it just a month ago so i guess i have more than 5000 hour om it or more who knows
I bought it on release day (for GC) and stopped playing it a handful of years ago and I don't feel like thinking about how old I am lol. I played it a lot, especially when I was grinding Mercs for all those 5 star ranks to get the Handcannon.
I had known about RE4 since around it's release and because I had a few friends who were huge RE addicts. Around Christmas 2007 I purchased a used Wii from a friend of a friend that came with about 20 games. I started trying the games out and most were **** to me, I was starting to regret buying it. Mario Galaxy was great, but then i decided to try RE4. I played it religiously, every morning, sometimes before coffee. That game would really get me hyped. I don't even know how many time I played the Mercs mode. Prob not as many as RE5's Mercs but certainly near 1,000 times easy. At that point in time that game became my favorite game ever. Since then I've purchased it for PS2, PC, Xbox 360, and not too long ago PS4. I even had a version of it on a jailbroken iPod Touch I think. That was the RE that really got me into them.
The only reason I ended up here at residentevil.org is because of that game. When I found that rare RE1 game that I started a thred about here I wouldn't have payed much attention to it, but since I loved the franchise so much I noticed it seemed odd. So yup, RE4 brought me here!
