I played... the first one. Part of it. I remember thinking it was a bit weird that saves were limited by items you find (typewriter ribbon, I think?). I liked it in theory, because you were forced to make decisions about where you saved. I think if the controls had been better I would have been more in love with the idea. I've heard from fans that the controls are a feature. OK. I liked the typewriter sound, thought the puzzles were goofy... and I couldn't get past the Racoon City name. I like to think I'm not so shallow, but I guess I am. I also liked that since the ammunition was limited, it wasn't just about blasting, but about being smart and being a bit terrified of losing your ability to defend yourself.I missed the boat on the Gamecube's RE4, and despite a few naysayers many think it's the best of them.Closest I ever got, on the Gamecube or anywhere, was Eternal Darkness. From what I know of the two franchises, well franchise and game, I think ED was the way to go for my personal tastes, anyway, but I'm sorta happy RE has lasted as long as it has.So yeah, I had no idea there were so many extra RE games out there beyond the big ones :) Thanks for the list.
