Resident Evil 4

Award: Yellow Pencil

Yellow Pencil / Gaming / Console Games / 2006

In 1996 Capcom released Resident Evil on the PSone to great critical acclaim. Lauded for its cinematic quality graphics and sound, impressively rendered backgrounds and the very real ability to scare, it was the start of one of the most successful game franchises in computer game history. Resident Evil set the benchmark for future action-adventure games and also created a new genre - Survival Horror. To date, the franchise will have spanned across a series of sixteen titles and seven different platforms, shipping over 30 million copies worldwide. The release of Resident Evil 4 on the Nintendo GameCube in March 2005 marked a change of direction for series. As the first Resident Evil game did all those years ago, the reinvention marked a new chapter in videogame history and a new genre, Survival Action, was born.
