It's been fifteen years since the Resident Evil series first began giving gamers chills, when the first game launched on U.S. soil in 1996. Since then, the series has jumped to multiple platforms, introduced us to a wide variety of characters, and remained adamant that the best aim came from planting your feet firmly on the ground.

Capcom celebrated its longstanding series--first envisioned by game director Shinji Mikami--by releasing a trailer featuring clips over the long journey. Included in the trailer are short glimpses of the upcoming HD re-releases of Resident Evil Code: Veronica X and Resident Evil 4, as well as new footage of the Slant Six-developed side story, Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City.

Grab a blanket, dim the lights, and put down your guide to master unlocking: it's time for a short history lesson.

        Resident Evil 5 is on PC, and is an extremely good port (IIRC)

          RE5 is indeed a very very good port, however no DLC exist. I was stoked when I saw Claire and then I remembered the consoles.

          From what I read, the HD remakes are for consoles only. Then the Mercenaries is 3DS exclusive.

      Seems like Resident evil series are going away from being a survival horror to shmups action. I'm not counting in the spinoffs but RE5 (albeit a good PC port) is really not scary or tense at all. No more of solving puzzle and the sense of danger is diminished significantly because of the co-op partner. WHether it is controlled by the AI or a friend, it is still less scary than going alone (aka RE4)

      Plus, shooting zombies (well, they are not zombies, but still) and tank-like movement, added with inability to aim and walk? Come on. Hopefully the re-make or their upcoming games will consider going back to the 'root'/basic and at least take the crown of survival horror back. I'd love to see this happen as I love RE series.
