15 best gaming graphical greats
Resident Evil (1996)
Not only was Resident Evil a pioneer in the horror game genre, but it was a graphical masterpiece. Beautifully pre-rendered rooms, 3D polygonal characters, and fixed camera angles made for one of the most immersive games ever made. The zombies and complex storyline were also a huge factor in its success, of course. But without the beautifully rendered Gill (in an age of Lara Croft fanboys), 6.4 millions copies of the game may not have, so prolifically, been sold.
