Which games better fit the "Resident Evil" or "BioHazard" names?

As many of you know, RE is known as Biohazard in Japan (and maybe Europe, but don't quote me)

So which games fit which name?

To me
Resident Evil = 1 and 4 Since they are all set in small out of the way villages of buildings giving a more well... Survival horror and resident feel

BioHazard = 2, 3, 5, 6 Since their is a huge outbreak that needs to be contained, taking over cities and countries.

Code Veronika on the other hand could go either way.

biohazard sounds better and fits the overall series...its always been about biohazards either by viral infection or parasitic

As I said 2 games fit "Resident Evil" better and the rest fit "Biohazard" better.

Resident Evil sounds cooler and is more inventive. Biohazard is a regular word and a little too 'on the nose'

This, quoting the quote of "this". So...yeah!

Here's a compilation, however I noticed RE2/RE3 were recast with the same guy who does Zero, REmake, RE5 and I know he'll be doing RE6. Code: Veronica for some reason only has him saying Resident Evil, same with Operation Raccoon City and I believe Survivor + Dead Aim. There seems to be two different actors, at it appears the guy from RE2/RE3 came back for Outbreak File 1....not sure about File 2 there.

I'll look for another compilation.

EDIT: He made a 2.0, including both VAs for RE2. Check it out.

I've never thought of classic Resident Evil controls as "Tank Controls". No tank I've ever controlled moved as smoothly as they do.

I've always thought we got the better deal with the title. "Resident Evil" just sounds cool.

If HK-47 and GLaDOS had a child, the awesome character they create would cause the video game world to explode. Join the Revengers! (board#: 587986)

Looking back at it, I guess RE3 is the first one that started using the new guy. I believe the RE2 one sounds like the original guy for RE1...but uncertain. The Code Veronica one is someone else entirely.

Edit: Ugh I keep editing these things. He didn't include Dead Aim but he does say Survivor. Regardless, the Resident Evil title > Biohazard though...for some reason Biohazard 3D Mercs has one of the two guys. Another note: I dig the foreign sound for Degeneration.
