If only one character or the other, Jill or Chris, could have the central focus of Remake with their story, who would choose to be the main character?

Id probably pick Chris. Solely because his campaign features Rebecca, so it feels a little more connected to RE0. Although Rebecca does feel like a totally different character in each game and dosen't mention what happens in Zero once....but it's all we have ain't it.

They also couldn't really reference Zero because Remake released 7 months beforehand. Remake was April 2002. Zero was November 2002.

They could have if they wanted to, but they didn't. They referenced Billy Coen in Resident Evil 2 on the N64 because they were already working on 0 for the N64 before it moved to the Gamecube. I also remember hearing there was gonna be some sort of prologue in REmake showing Rebecca getting to the Mansion first that was removed. I think even one of the trailers for REmake shows Rebecca being surrounded by zombies in the main hall. Don't know if it's related or not or just done to be flashy for the trailer, but it was definitely interesting.

I'd say Wesker's obsession with Chris in later games pretty much proves that his story is the canon one - at least for the most part, I still believe the truth is a mix of the events from both his and Jill's campaigns, with Chris merely playing a bigger part in foiling Wesker's plans. But if I had to choose only one, it would also be Chris, for the same reasons I stated in the other thread about Chris vs. Jill.

Honestly Jill. Her version of events, in my opinion, covers more of the plot than Chris does. Maybe its because Jill has more cutscenes with Barry that expand the mystery. Plus Wesker spells out his plans to Jill and he doesn't for Chris.

He admits to betraying Umbrella along with the STARS to Jill. To Chris all he does is admit to being responsible for the deaths of Bravo team and releases the Tyrant.

(on a side note, I always felt that Wesker's rage boner for Chris should have been connected to CVX instead of RE1. Chris does way more to antagonize Wesker there than he does even in his own version of RE1. Also RE0 should have happened congruently to RE1 instead of the day before, don't @ me)

It's a shame. They definitely had the opportunity to make Rebecca's character evolve in the REmake, but they couldn't even get the same voice actress.
