Curiosity killed the cat they say...I'm going to dive into this Resident Evil franchise with a clean slate. Having never completed a single game in the RE franchise before.
The only RE game I touched briefly was RE2. Here's literally all I remember about it (without looking at the wiki or Google, etc): There's a guy named Chris Redfield or something and there's a girl. They get into a car accident (I think). Chris is a cop who is trying to find out what happened to the rest of his cronies at the police station. I also shot at a scary monster with a big tongue with my shotgun that I got at a gun store. I believe the owner dies via a zombie.
That's it...That's all I remember. I've played no other game in the series and I know nothing about the fiction other than there's an evil corporation named Umbrella who made a virus or something.
My knowledge of RE is obviously slim to none and I would like to know if there's any back-story anyone can fill me in on so I can understand what the hell is going on and what I need to know before going in (if anything). Try to avoid spoilers for RE6 if you can.
I know there's also a topic of posting your impressions, but I might post mine here. This topic is mainly made to give me a taste of the fiction. It might also be interesting to some to hear an outsiders opinion on the game.
