To me, it seems to be 2. The first game was first, but RE2 is what made the series, so to speak. --- GT/PSN: DEGALON MK: Sheeva/Mileena, SSF4: Guile, BB: Makoto, DOA4: Leon, SC4: Astaroth, SF3: Alex, AH3: Zenia Valov, Tekken: Bryan Fury, VF: Vanessa
Resident Evils 5, including Lost in Nightmares dlc.
Perfect control and much improved over the tank controls of REmake, amazing fun co-op, much improved story after the disasterous re4, great weapon upgrade system, much improved inventory system after the horrible re4 suitcase, likeable characters especially after the creepy Ashley in re4, and infinite replayability.
RE6 is great too but it's not as scary as the masterpiece RE5. --- Don't hate us because we're beautiful...
