Resident Evil 3: Nemesis
Genre: Survival Horror
Resident Evil 3: Nemesis was the only PS1 Resident Evil I never played. The game’s fine and all, but I just never got around to playing. Top that with the fact that I never owned the game until 2012 and you have a formula for skipping over the game completely. There’s something with this game and Code Veronica that is interesting to note. I’m a little fuzzy on the details, but it’s something like Sony had an exclusive deal with numbered Resident Evil games, meaning RE3 had to be on the PS1. But Capcom was playing around with the Dreamcast and the new technology it brought as they developed Code Veronica. The development teams were making Code Veronica as a spinoff and Nemesis as the new game, but as time went on they sort of switched: Code Veronica became the newest game in the sequential series while Nemesis sort of became the spinoff. Regardless, they’re both great games, and any Resident Evil game is a classic on the PlayStation.
