Resident Evil is a third-person Survival Horror videogame series created by Capcom and one of the pioneers of the Survival Horror genre. The first Resident Evil was released in 1996 as the first of its genre, and featured a number of grusome monsters halting a police investigation within a seemingly-abandoned mansion. The game was praised for its forcing of players to conserve ammunition, unlike earlier games such as Doom, and offered challenging puzzles essential for the progression of the game.
