Resident Evil 3, a remake of the 1999 PS One classic, is out soon, bringing the escape from Raccoon City and battle with the Nemesis to current gen consoles. What better way to celebrate than to look back on the moments that best defined the series? Let’s take a look at 15 of them here.
The First Zombie Encounter- Resident Evil 1
This is where it all started. Alpha Team takes refuge in a mysterious mansion after a pack of ravenous dogs kills one of their members. From there, the player controls either Chris Redfield or Jill Valentine. Upon exploring the mansion, they see it – a zombie, munching on a body and slowly rising to face them, its mangled face apparent. As far as moments go, this would define the horror franchise for years to come.
