"What's your favourite Resident Evil? Is a question iv been asking friends and colleagues a lot lately. And id say 8 out of every 10 answers has been Resident Evil 2. Now RE2 is a game i rate incredibly highly, it was the first one i beat, i love the characters like the Chief, i love the soundtrack of the RPD and the save rooms, and i love the zapping system and mulitple scenarios. So is this game truly the best in the series? RE5 is the best selling, RE4 is considered the perfect revamp and REmake is considered the peak of survival horror, and while i agree with that there's just something about this game, i go back to it again and again and everytime i enter the RPD and hear that soundtrack, im flooded with nostalgia. On the flip side, iv had people say that RE2 is one of the most overated games in the series, criticizing it's short campaigns and lack of enviroments compared to RE3's City's, Hospitals and parks. I can understand that, as i feel RE3 dosen't get enough love for it's varied locations. This just seems to be that game that people absoloutly love and play again and again, or think it's overated. So is this game deserving of being called the best in the series?
