1. I don't think these are total sales. It can't be.

2. Looks like what is considered the worst RE on this site is the best selling RE.

Surprising, this shows that Capcom actually cares about community input instead of just money. They clearly would of kept the formula of 5/6 despite being so hated, if it was only about money.

The sales numbers for Re5 and 6 are unbelievable... I see the appeal in RE 5, specially with th coop, but 6 is a heavily flawed game.


and RE5 isn't heavily flawed? It took everything from RE4, a near perfect game, and literally ruined it. RE6 at least tried to fix those issues.

Take off the rose-tinted glasses my friend


It's factual. Whether you think RE4 was a good RE or not it was still pretty much a mechanically perfect and balanced game with very little RNG. RE5 and 6 not only were bad RE's but bad games as well.

So is RE4 counting everything that isn't Wii and GC sales in one number? Or is it a specific unlabeled version of RE4?


I'm sure i remember years ago they claimed RE4 sold 2 million on GC by the time the PS2 copy came out. Weird.
It's not the end of the world, but we can see it from here.

I know. At one point years ago I thought they released that RE2 had sold like 6 million.

5 is the best makes total sense Wesker carries Capcom.

6 is nice too but it's just not 5. Wesker's son... sort of helps carrying Capcom?

7 sucks though.
I don't just sell stuff, I am actually involved in these.
Now, I'm motivated!

Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City -2.5 million


2.5 million disappointed people, lmao.

But still interesting to see RE5 on top. I really enjoyed it, but it doesn't seem well received.

Probably enjoyed Revelations 2 the most though. RE3 is my favourite of the classic RE series.

But RE4 only sold about 6.2 million across everything, including the remaster? Huh.

ok...

The reason Re5 and 6 sold well isn't because they're amazing games. Seriously, it ain't rocket science.

RE5 is the sequel to one of the best games of all time. It's hype banks a lot on the success of RE4.

RE6's hype banks a lot on its incredible marketing and the whole "ensemble cast" of previous characters. Also, there was actually quite a backlash against RE5's move to balls-out action which lead to Capcom doing this:

Yeah, talk about first class lying.

I love seeing the salt still being directed towards RE7, the best RE game since classic RE
