The Escapist Celebrates 20 Years of Resident Evil - UPDATE

Resident Evil, the father of survival horror, celebrated its 20th anniversary this week. The Escapist is here to celebrate that milestone.

20 years ago Tuesday, Capcom's survival horror franchise Resident Evil wrapped its cold grip of terror firmly around the hearts of gamers. It was a massive success, and spawned half a dozen sequels, a stunning remake, countless spin-offs, and a successful film franchise, with movies released both in live action and CG. But more than that, Resident Evil gave birth to an entirely new genre - survival horror.

All this week, The Escapist celebrated the 20th Anniversary of Resident Evil. Here's our lineup of coverage for the week:

Not for me because I am the biggest Resident Evil fanboy in this site.

I own all the games.

And I am one of those people that prefers the old school Tank Controls/Fixed Camara games more then others.

Hey, I have the first four games and watched the movies with actual interest. Nevertheless, if there's a lampshade available, it should be used.
