One of the most popular Role Playing Game among our enthusiasts is Resident Evil. A series of survival horror video games against recurring outbreaks of zombies and monsters. It is such a popular game that profits from the Resident Evil franchise alone are worth over $6 Billion, while similar games with various titles from the maker of Resident Evil, Capcom, sold more than 46 million titles.
Batting for the Resident Evil franchise, the 5th series is the 3rd best selling game with over 8 million copies sold. That alone generates $803 million dollars in sales revenue. It would be unfair to the other franchises if we only give credit to the 5th franchise. The Resident Evil franchise released seven installments for the game with the top 5 series clocking their sales revenues between 543 million dollars to 803 million dollars.
All the Resident Evil series releases keep getting better and better — which just justifies our ache for more. The series defined the horror survival game since 1996. Introducing gamers and non-enthusiasts alike to the era of high definition realistic blood and gore.
With the success that the gaming industry is getting, it is interesting to think about and actually find out what makes the perfect survival video game. What makes people go out and buy the game, and then keep a look out for the next series?
