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.

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.
