This is one video game franchise I never get sick of playing. I do favor the trilogy, that being 1, 2, and 3. We all have fond memories of those moments when we first played the games and nearly dropped our controller. Here are ten of my favorites.
Lisa Trevor Encounter
“OMG, I’m sorry I read your diary!” It was creepy going into her dwelling and reading her diary. It was claustrophobic so I wasn’t sure if I could put her down and get out. However, she’s pretty easy to take down, but she doesn’t stay down.
Tyrant (end fight)
Realizing I had to take this guy down was a bit of a freak out especially when you encounter him again outside. I like how you have to run around and fire at him until Brad finally drops down the rocket launcher. It’s like “finally asshole! Couldn’t you see I needed help down here?”
Mr. X Tyrant
This guy followed me around everywhere. Busting through walls… appearing out of nowhere. “Dude, you’re not getting my phone number.”
Who the hell puts sharks in the basement? I remember screaming at Jill to RUN! It doesn’t help screaming at pixels, by the way. This part of the game always got my heart racing. No, not in that way.
Nothing like taking a nice stroll down a seemingly harmless hallway. That is until devil zombie dogs bust through the window! You have two seconds to get your pistol grip on.
I HATE snakes. Okay? Fuck you, Capcom. I always got poisoned and had to have Barry save my ass. At least there were no bad puns about a Jill sandwich.
That little cut scene when you realized something followed you back to the mansion. And there it is. Kermit the Frog on steroids from hell. Watch those claws.
Did something just scurry across the window outside? Oh no, I don’t want to go through that door now.
The fuck you say. How about NO! This bastard followed me all over too. Needless to say he didn’t get my phone number either.
This set the whole tone for the rest of the game and those to follow. Well, at least for a few more games. This is the first and probably the quintessential “Oh Shit!” moment.
Albert Wesker – SHIRTLESS
OK, so this is a different kind of oh shit moment. A good one. We all knew he was hiding a kick ass body under all that leather. Hmmm, I wonder if he listens to Judas Priest.
