Sometimes we hold a game closely or in high regard for years after experiencing it. For Resident Evil games, sometimes that's because it was a challenge that you overcame, or because you go back play it every so often and it's still fun, or maybe it ignited your interest in the series and the community. Take a minute to think about this one, what does Resident Evil 2 mean to you?
a way for new beginnings and a way to retcon a lot of good stuff, rip, hopefully they remake the manga/comics and the outbreak series to help fill in those holes
A way of following up the story without it being essentially relying you to know the events of the previous game, aside from passing references the game doesn’t expect you to know the scenario of the first.
RE2 was a very huge part of my childhood and it's something that I've kept with me all these years. It's also the game that got me editing the wiki in the first place and kickstarted my path toward translation. While I love the franchise as a whole, it's always going to be my first and will always have a special place in my heart.
For me, RE2 is a vital piece that makes up the greater entity of Resident Evil - it stoked my imagination through the characters, the design and the worldbuilding – it could have me dreaming about Raccoon City, the RPD, and Leon and Claire for days. Thinking about it now just brings me back to a more carefree and less stressful time in my life. I suppose the association with that feeling is what has kept me faithful to the series all these years.
It is and always will be a very important part of my life, it’s a game I grew up with, I have fond memories attached to it, of the time I had playing it, of discussing it with other people, spending time with friends and family alike on it just to share my love for this game, it represents a lot, and it introduced me to the series as a whole, a series which I today love and admire, considering it one my favorites, a love that bled over the DMC series, and I can never thank this game enough for having brought so many positive influences in my life, contributing immensely to my cultural landscape.
A chance to delve into the early days of Leon and Claire, as well as play through (what is to me, and I’m sure many others) a brand new RE game. Hugely exciting!
To me, it means the introduction to this series. It means the root of my love for something that makes me happier every time I get to experience an aspect of it. It means something I’ve been holding dear for the past 12 years and something that’s been the part of my life.
