Remake of the 1996 game Resident Evil, the first installment in the Resident Evil video game series. The story takes place in 1998 near the fictional Midwestern town of Raccoon City where a series of bizarre murders have taken place. The player takes on the role of either Chris Redfield or Jill Valentine, S.T.A.R.S. agents sent in by the city to investigate the murders.

Resident Evil was developed over the course of one year and two months as part of an exclusivity deal between Capcom and Nintendo. It was directed by Shinji Mikami, who also designed and directed the original Resident Evil. Mikami decided to produce a remake because he felt that the original had not aged well and that the GameCube's capabilities could bring the game closer to his original vision. The game retains the same graphical presentation, with 3D models superimposed over pre-rendered backgrounds. However, the quality of the graphics were vastly improved. The remake also features new gameplay mechanics, revised puzzles, additional explorable areas, a revised script, and new story details including an entire subplot cut from the original game.

Upon release, Resident Evil received critical acclaim from video game journalists, who praised its graphics and improved gameplay over the original game. It is often described as one of the best, scariest, and most visually impressive entries in the Resident Evil series. Despite this, the game sold worse than expected and led Capcom to change the direction of the series to a more action-oriented approach. In 2008, the game was ported to the Wii, featuring a new control system. A high-definition version of the game was released worldwide for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One in 2015 to positive critical reception and commercial success.

Building on survivalist and horror themes, players in 7 Days to Die can scavenge the abandoned cities of the buildable and destructable voxel world for supplies or explore the wilderness to gather raw materials to build their own tools, weapons, traps, fortifications and shelters. The horror (zombies) element makes up a large part of the game, including building and the fully destructible (voxel) environment - everything is built from blocks, similar to Minecraft, yet creating a very smooth look.

With steady updates (but slow, avg. 2 major updates / year, with several minor ones in-between, mostly bug fixes) the game has steadily advanced and continues to advance in terms of graphics but even more so and more importantly, gameplay, having changed from being a mostly simple shooter and focused on elaborate crafting (changed with Alpha 12), to a full RPG experience, with Alpha 15 having introduced NPCs (traders only) and an extensive skill system and Alpha 17 introduced this as a categorized (traits-like) system.

The game now also has an extensive traps, automated turrets via an electricity tier, plus a whole assortment of usable single- and multi-seating vehicles (manual and motor bikes, cars, gyrocopter) introduced in Alpha 17.

The game can be played single-player (SP), multi-player (MP), co-op / PvE and PvP; game servers can be run either via the game client, or as a dedicated server with extensive configurability and number of modifications possible, including custom blocks and sounds, plus an event system, which created an active "modding" community and allows to experience the game in many different ways that were initially not intended.
