Resident Evil, the father of survival horror, celebrated its 20th anniversary this week. The Escapist is here to celebrate that milestone.

20 years ago Tuesday, Capcom’s survival horror franchise Resident Evil wrapped its cold grip of terror firmly around the hearts of gamers. It was a massive success, and spawned half a dozen sequels, a stunning remake, countless spin-offs, and a successful film franchise, with movies released both in live action and CG. But more than that, Resident Evil gave birth to an entirely new genre – survival horror.
