I have RE4 on the PS2 and i loved it, but i never played a horror game on this gen, so i was thinking about getting all of the Resident evils this gen to compleate the story, but i seen dead space and that series looks nice also. So what series should i do? Resident Evil or Dead space???

Hard to compare the two as they were designed with different goals in mind.

RE is great for action and co-op, Mercs gives you lots of replay value, too.

Dead Space is good for some scares here and there, but has little replay value unless you are trophy hunting.

RE has a mediocre storyline, but at least they try. DS has some story but they never delve into it meaningfully.

Id say go for dead space even though i'm not a huge fan of either series =/
Neither are horror and the ps3 RE are not like the ps2 resident evils, the creatures in resident evil are also over the top imo. Resident evil 5 is one of the 3 games I just can't bring myself to finish

Winner of the dumbest thing I've read so far today.

Well Dead Space is only in this gen, but even though RE changed so much over the years i say RE.

I've got both series. This gen I think Dead Space is way better. I LOVED RE4 but it's gone downhill since.

If we're comparing this generation only, Dead Space. It's nice to see a game that knows how to produce a horror atmosphere. Well, DS1, anyway. >_>

If we're just counting REs before RE4, I'd go with RE.

I wouldnt name them as horror, especially when you're comparing them to playstation 2 horror games.
