In your opinion; which game in the series has the best save room music?

Here's a video that includes all of them:

For me; it's re0.

Agreed^^^

Hands down RE0 had the best save theme to me and its a shame it does not get as much love as fan favorites such as RE2 or REremake.

RE3 save theme is a very close second for me.

I like RE 2 (original) the best and, even though I can't stand Nemesis, I also really like the save music from RE 3.

It's a hard decision for me, I feel like RE remake's save room music is the best when it comes to presenting the perfect atmosphere of dread lurking around the corner while providing a sense of brief safety. It's very dreamy and mysterious, which fits the game as well.

But if I have to go by pure emotions, I think Code Veronica X's save room music is by far the most beautiful. Its the only save room song in the series that sound distinctly Japanese, and it reminds me a lot of Final Fantasy and tragic anime music. In a way, it sticks out since it's not very traditional RE style. Granted, RE0 echoes Japanese style as well, but not to the same extent.

RE2 and RE3 have very similar save room themes, mainly because of their inclusion of piano strings and similar synthesizers. They're both equally good IMO.

I also want to give a special shoutout to the result theme from Revelations 2, its simply a very good and creepy theme.

Probably an unpopular opinion, but I kind of like the one from RE4. Quite soothing.

Remake is a close second.

The original RE2, closely followed by 3. I love how both tracks sound so sad and desperate, perfectly capturing the state the city is in at the time, while still making you happy to hear them because it means you're save... for now.

REmake 2 has a second version of the save room theme that plays when you're looking at the unlocked figurines in the main menu. I like that one too. The one in the game itself, not so much.

Resident Evil 2 sticks out to me as the most epic but the vibe isn't as surreal as Zero or REmake.
