In the trailer, the soldier guy is talking about how Chris' personal agenda won't get them anywhere.
In CV, he was ready to pack up and leave once he found Claire. Totally ignoring the whole Alexia thing.
In RE5, he was ready to pack up and leave AGAIN when he found Jill. Jill had to convince him to stop Wesker, as he replied against a "Millions of people will die," with a "Well, yea, but-".
Dunno if selfish is the right word, but do you think Chris is kinda.....umm, can't think of a word. He just seems like the type of guy that would save his friend, and not a hundred strangers, rather the other way around.

Yes Chris is selfish it makes Chris seem more human in a psychological sense (even though he did some inhuman things in the game). He's just a man with an agenda to save the girl. He goes in does his thing and tries to get out asap.
This is a character that's defined himself in the RE series as fighting for his comrades to the last breathe and always preserving life, and you think he's selfish? Hell, even in Marvel vs Capcom 3 his quotes are "No one's dying on my watch" and "I'll be damned before I lose another partner."
And anytime someone said to Chris "no, we can't leave yet" he has stayed to finish the fight. The man finishes everything when he's put up to the challenge even against all odds, and the entire time he does so he remains objective-based, never gets cocky and never quits. That's what makes him a great character, or just better than Leon.
