I hate how everyone keeps whining about how Resident Evil 4 ruined the series. People keep saying it's not real survival horror.
But I have never been more terrified in a game more than RE 4 and Cry of Fear (technically a mod) and I was 9 or something when I played RE 1-3. The first 3 had tension but they were NOT scary. All they had was ammo scarcity ,ink tapes and backtracking.(Don't think I hate them though.They are still one of my favourite games)
