PC version is the best, obviously.

One of my favourite games. Own it on PS2, PS3, PS4, and PC. PS2 and PS3 are unplayable for me now though, due to the framerate. Not that I even have those systems hooked up anymore.

Happy 15th Resident Evil 4, a truly awesome game. I’ve played it on the GameCube, PS2, 360, Wii, and Xbox One. I’d really love to see them do a remake of this game next after the upcoming RE3 Remake.

One of the many reasons why 2005 is still the best year in gaming.

Best version is PC version, duh.

But the most special version to me is the GC version. It was first and awesome. I completed that version four times, and 100%ed mercenaries mode with all characters.

Resident Evil 4 is still an incredible game to this day. The first time I played it was on the Playstation 2. I was first blown away when I saw the video previews of the game but it was sadly on the Gamecube only originally so I was a little disappointed that I couldn't play it since I never owned a Gamecube but I was happy when Capcom brought over to the PS2. The best version for me is on the PC.

Silent Hill 2 had a bigger impact on the horror community than RE4, but RE4 was still amazing.

For a long time the Wii version was the best you could get with those slick wiimote controls.

Now its the steam HD version by a mile.

...and its mainly because of the fantastic work by the guys at: www.re4hd.com

4 is the only RE I never played at all I might pick it up at some point. I didn't really enjoy the series after code Veronica.

I remember this being the game I bought a gamecube with.

I always wanted a gamecube, it just took me a while to buy one.

I bought mine with Double Dash and Resident Evil 4, was so thrilled!

Even PC has 2 versions right?

Yeah, first PC port was released 2007 and sucked. It was based on the PS2 version instead of GC version making the graphics much worse, and had no mouse support.

The one I have on Steam is called Ultimate HD Edition and was released 2014. Game still looks like oatmeal by today's standards, but it's a good port.

Btw, nice start with the GC there. DD is probably my favorite Mario Kart ever. Bought mine with Wind Waker and Metroid Prime and my mind was blown. Later when RE4 released, mind blew again.

haha yep... I played this what feels like years ago now when only the pueblo was done. Still with even just the object, case, gun and character texture updates throughout the game, its a better version than the others.

Hopefully they can finish before Capcom releases the remake lol

Yep, same here played it on PS2 first on launch day loved the hell out of it and then got the Steam HD version in 2014 which is the best version like you said.

@me2002:

GameCube original, wii colors are different and slightly off and they had changed to the stats.

I first played the ps2 back in 2005 because I asked for it for Christmas ( I was so happy when it was ported to ps2).

However years later I played the GameCube version and it looked like a next gen game... I love Ada but separate ways is not the best thing ever. The armor suit Ashley breaks the game and Leon’s outfit looks goofy.

Gamecube playing cutscenes in engine was very impressive to me.

@warmblur: I did not play it on launch but I previously only played ratchet and clank games( first one came with my ps2 and got me hooked, war of the monsters and devil may cry 3). RE4 on the ps2 blew me away even though it was a inferior port when I played it

I was happy when Capcom brought it over to Steam because the original PC port that was done by Ubisoft was bad. They didn't bother to give it mouse support so you ether had to use a controller or keyboard only, and they ruined the cut-scenes by making them blurry. The Steam HD version really is the best port for Resident Evil 4.

Bought it on the PS2, finished it and sold, never to be bought again. Was ok but nowhere near as great as people make it out to be.

Capcom the kings of milking its fanbase with re-releasing its games.

Code Veronica is the best RE game.

The best version is the one that's legally questionable:

Wii Edition on Dolphin with HD texture pack

The Wii Edition has the best controls. And you can make it look even better than the Steam version by playing it on Dolphin with HD texture pack.

I played it on PS2, Xbox 360, and XB1, not sure which is best, sure newer versions have updated aspect ratio and resolution, and playing on a modern system means reverting to dated controls, and there's no major updates to 3D models or textures. Still, game is still fun, but it packed the most punch for me when I played it on the PS2.

Have you played it with a Steam controller? I'd say it's better than the wii version.

The (native) PC version also has a HD mod, although they might be one and the same thing.

I couldn't get into this game because of the movement (or lack thereof). I heard it is a well designed game otherwise.

Haven't used the Steam controller. How does it compare to the PlayStation or Xbox controllers? Either way, I doubt I'd enjoy it more than the Wii Edition. The Wiimote brings a whole new light-gun type feel to the game.

The HD texture mods for both the Steam and Dolphin versions more-or-less look similar. There's also the Ishiiruka version of Dolphin which has graphical features like Phong shading, which I haven't yet seen implemented in mods for the native PC version.

The Steam Controller uses Gyro with a touch-pad and allows the player to (optionally) instantly turn when they push back.

I didn't use instant turn (because the game wasn't designed with it in mind) and it's already fairly easy to begin with but generally perfected it over the wii controller.

Haven't actually played it with Xbox/PS controller. Once you get use to the trackpad combined by light-gyro use, generally don't want to use thumb-sticks.

Listen, it's good a game, but it's dated as ****, has aged horribly, influenced a decade of disastrous quicktime events, and has been milked to death by Capcom. But, we love it all the same

@Shmiity: Agreed. its aged AF. I missed out on playing it in 2005, so I didn't get to enjoy it.

Looking forward to the RE4 remake in 4K/60 with the ability to move and shoot sometime in 2022-2023 though.

Jesus christ, haha. The first two thoughts that popped in my brain were "God, please stop milking RE4, dont remake it." and "I'd probably buy it if they remade it"

DAMN IT
