It depends what style of gameplay you want to have. For classic fixed camera and survival horror start with Resident Evil 2002 remake. It will be a drop in graphics but then you could play the original RE2 and RE3d moving to Code Veronica X and then finally RE0. That's where the canon original style games end. RE1 and CVX allow you to play as Chris but he is a secondary character in CVX. Obviously RE0 links directly to the events of RE1 and you can get a bundle with the remake and RE0 together. However it's aimed at experienced players, as is CVX, so I'd play that last rather than first.

If you prefer a more action focused series and more modern camera RE4,5 and 6 are for you. RE5 and 6 allow you to play as Chris.

If you want a more modern control and camera scheme but want more horror then the Revelations series (the first one of which lets you play as Chris occasionally), RE2 and the coming RE3 remake are for you. RE7 is also a good horror experience with Chris as DLC but it is in first person which isn't for everyone.

I can't believe this game isn't out yet what a year this week has been. And now on top of that my Amazon says I may get the game in April 8 instead of... ya know... before like every other normal person?? Thank you coronavirus for causing delays I guess.

They should have released it early. What better promo can you get for a game about a viral outbreak in a quarentined city that a worldwide virus and quarentine?

For sure! It's not like there isn't enough demand. Hell literally everybody's bored locked at their homes with nothing to do for the first time ever and Capcom ain't capitalizing on it. Oh well.

I would recommend any single Resident Evil game, any game except: Dead Aim, umbrella corps, the rail shooters, survivor or outbreak. The rest are all out there for you to try and enjoy.

Thanks for your replies and suggestions. I really appreciate it.

I guess I'm gonna go for REmake first then and see if it suits me.

If you want an easy introduction to REmake, start with Jill.

She's having two more item slots and a lockpick (Chris doesn't have those)

Chris can take a good bit more damage than Jill though. So there is that to consider too. I miss when characters had their own special thing. Not that it lasted long mind but it would be an element that should return.

Since Jill can carry two more items, she can just carry an extra healing item. Chris' healing bonus is negligible.

Jill also gets many of the weapons earlier, and a grenade launcher, and Barry's Magnum (which is much stronger than Chris' and Jill's).
