The Past, Present And Future Of Resident Evil

The Past, Present And Future Of Resident Evil

Has it really been 15 years since the S.T.A.R.S. team took their first steps inside of a zombie-filled mansion on the outskirts of Raccoon City? This 15th Anniversary video celebrates the past decade and a half of Resident Evil, while giving us a taste of what’s still to come.

Man, those original games haven’t aged well, have they? The original Resident Evil in particular is completely laughable by today’s standards, with its gloriously bad voice acting and stiff animations. Still, it was the game that proved that you didn’t need high-profile voice actors and cutting-edge technology to scare the pants off of players.

Fifteen years later the series is still going strong, with five more titles in the works along with another damn movie. It’s hard to look back fondly when the series is still this active.

Still, you never forget the first time zombie dogs break through the window. Thanks Capcom.


  • I think the voice acting in the original was bad even by standards fifteen years ago. I remember playing it with friends on the PS1 and laughing at the voice overs.
    “Wait! Don’t…open…THAT…door!”. Lol.
