Capcom’s Resident Evil 2 remake is one of the best horror games of the last few months, and it’s not just the critics who’ve been blown away by the stunning reimagining of the 1998 classic.
The title perfectly encapsulated the survival horror days of old, and it’s become one of the best-rated games in the whole of the Resident Evil franchise.
The Resident Evil 2 Remake might be the best game I’m gonna play this year, you guys.
It’s friggin excellent.

So, just how popular is it? Well, the title has officially sold more copies on Steam than the most-recent “new” game in the series – Resident Evil 7.
This isn’t just good news for Capcom, but it could spell excellent news for fans of the franchise. Whether or not we’ll be getting a Resident Evil 3: Nemesis remake is said to be all down to the success of RE2, so it’s safe to say it’s a likely bet.
Resident Evil 2 Remake is probably going to be legit one of the best games I’ve ever played…
