You should've waited till the resident evil 7 dlcs were out, got some extra info in em.
I know the true of RE 6 It wanst simmon simmons made the virus to make an Ada and control The world with it but he didint continue until Carla adas doppleganger took the job made a soldier called j'avo and NEO-U j'vo soldiers. Simmons made the outbrake but he only wanted to kill the president. Then leon blamed simmons. And simmons wanted leon to die cuz leom was in his way to do job to kill all humans in like raccoon city
javo instead of g-yavo to pronouce it Lol

Long story short: Very crazy rich people did crazy things with crazy viruses for no good reason whatsoever.
Why'd He Bite Me (3 days ago)
Alexia didn't accidentally kill her "father." She found out about how and why she was created, her and her brother and used him as a test subject. Noting the changes he went through, she was able to conclude that she needed to go into stasis to meld with it. You forgot the T103 and the arms race for the project bio weapon between Umbrella US and Umbrella Europe which led to the creation of Nemesis. Where is Telos? :D Also Brandon Bailey was involved with finding the flower in Africa. Outbreak is canon, where is that? CGI Movies? Some stuff in here isn't really accurate ..

thank you so much, i played all RE games, but the years are so far apart and ive played so many games in between that i really didn't see a clear flow between the stories and kinda confuse. this video stitch everything up together, tho i have yet to play RE7 so this was kinda a spoiler for me but not that i mind. cool vids keep it up

Resident evil 7 doesnt seem to tie together with the rest of the story, that is if "Redfield," is suppost to be Chris.

Poorly detailed pal, you made it seem Ada Wong's fault in RE6 as you forgot to say she had a doppelganger, the most relevant issue of that game. Besides you did not include the CGI films which also take part in the original story timeline. And many other details... what a pity.

The books are their own timeline, like the Anderson films. Characters, like 'Trent' do not appear in the games. Some stuff from the novels has been used in the games though, like Chris and Claire being orphans and Leon being late to work because of partying and breaking up with his girlfriend

Melanie Klausner (13 days ago)
Yes it was a revamped umbrella that is trying to show the world they werent on board with the members that were doing all the experiments your have to play the Chris DLC to understand it. I didn't play it but watched a playthrough of parts of it were chris tells them that if he finds out they are using him for anything bad he gonna take them down
Jerrystolk (20 days ago)
This comically poor storytelling. I'm pretty sure it's Capcom who has the debilitating amnesia. They even forget that Resident Evil are supposed to be horror survival games. (parts one - code veronica did just that) Part 4 wasn't even that but at least it was a fun game. Took them took remaking and porting RE 1 20 times to figure out that people want a horror game. So they finally made Resident Evil 7. (which is great) And now we are getting what looks like to be a fantastic remake and rework of Resident Evil 2. Executives are fucking idiots. Still.............gamers kept buying enough of their laughable games to keep the mess of a series going for so long until middle aged out of touch overpaid fucking imbeciles of executives finally figured to give gamers something they actually wanted.

What about Resident Evil Dead Aim for PS2? Has anyone played the game? If s, how does that relate ? is it also about the ship that got taken over ?
StrongestManKurosawa (4 days ago)
Dead Aim is just some Umbrella lore. The ship it takes place on for most of the game is where Umbrella sold BOWs (The Spencer Rain), Morpheus was one of the people blamed for the Raccoon City Incident and following incidents, and so on
how to tell which characters are pussys well chris jill wesker and barry are because theyre scared of dog but they rather stay in a house full of zombies snakes alot of shit

After watching this video I'm still confused about the RE timeline. But what confuses me the most is how Chris changed so much. How is that possible?
StrongestManKurosawa (4 days ago)
He changed following CV because Wesker did manage to capture his sister and he failed to save Steve. That, and he nearly died fighting Wesker. This caused him to start hitting the gyms for a few years, and in RE5 he beats Wesker, and saves Jill, meaning all his steroid abuse has paid off.
Tyler Bergen (27 days ago)
Hmm...well, the Arklay mansion incident had little to do with the T-Virus being released in Raccoon City. The reason it got released in Raccoon City is because of the idiocy of Umbrella's UBCS team shooting Birkin to take the G-Virus. After he mutated he smashed all the T-Virus samples under his foot and it contaminated the water/got spread by rats from there. The G-Virus samples he had on him he ate to increase his mutation/strength. T-Virus was the green liquid in that RE2 cut scene, as opposed to the purple vials containing the g-virus.

The president's daughter is kidnapped, so they send a rookie cop to a foreign country without a translator, instead of a whole army... Makes sense. Good job CAPCOM
StrongestManKurosawa (4 days ago)
Leon had been an American Agent for about 6 years following RE2 (see his RE3 Epilogue File for that), and the translators were the guys driving him in. They were also unaware of Las Plagas and were just investigating to see if Ashley was there

Not canonical to the series. The only canonical Raccoon City media are -RE2 -RE3 -Outbreak Files 1 and 2 -Raccoon City Radio Drama -BIOHAZARD 4D Executer (Gray Canon)

Never understood why resident evil 7 was called resident evil if it had nothing to do with the original series or didn’t have any zombies. But okay.
StrongestManKurosawa (4 days ago)
RE isn't about zombies though. Even in the first game they said zombies were an accident. What RE is really about is BOWs, such as the Tyrant series (t-001, 002, 073, 103), Hunter types, G-type creations, etc. And RE4 had already ditched zombies

Tl;dw. Basically people trying to control something they didnt fully understand. Lost control and fked up the world. Lol
StrongestManKurosawa (4 days ago)
No, they knew what they were doing. One of the founders, Ozwell Spencer, wanted a virus that could infect 100% of people administered it, in a bid to create a virus that would make him a God among men and make him immortal, which Albert Wesker eventually creates with Uroroborus. And the world doesn't get fucked up, just a Bioterror incident every other year.

What's more complex the history of RE or picking the right gift on Jill Valentine's day?
Mike R. (1 month ago)
Its also the same storyline of people disappearing and someone else being sent to find them in the middle of a zombie outbreak only to have to fight the ceo of the company that started it and infects 5hemselves for some odd reason
StrongestManKurosawa (4 days ago)
That's not how RE1 works. It starts the same, yeah, but the original explanation was that staff were overworked and the leak was accidental. Later on, it's retconned that Wesker did infect himself, but it was with a specialized virus that would activate shortly after he dies, so he could fake his death. In RE2, Birkin infects himself because he was dying and wanted to get revenge and save his G-Virus, and didn't expect to lose control. RE3's big bad is a BOW, and the human big bad escapes having won. CODE:Veronica's villain infected herself years before Claire showed up, and her virus made her superhuman (as intended). And the past 3 games have nothing to do with people disappearing, and RE2/3's cast were unaware of the outbreak till it was too late. And in CV, Claire was there when the outbreak started.
Great at condensing the events but butchered a crap ton of the names
Albert Wisker (1 month ago)
Can someone answer this for me? If the T-virus was created for making super people and (eventually tyrants), then does that mean that the zombies are just some sort of byproduct of infection if it is left unmanaged?
StrongestManKurosawa (4 days ago)
Yes. I think the number mentioned in Wesker's Report for t-Virus compatibility was 1 in 1000, and you needed to be of a certain level of intelligence or else your brain would die. Zombies were a byproduct of someone who was infected and wasn't the right fit for the virus.
Wait who did Albert fuck to get his son

How many fucking viruses do they need
StrongestManKurosawa (4 days ago)
REmake and 0 don't require any story. 4 doesn't really either, but Leon is the main character so REmake 2 would help. RE5 is a buildup from the entire series and is the most lore heavy one, but you can get away with just REmake and CV (and listen to Wesker's Report as well) Revelations requires no real background other than 'The BSAA exists' Revelations 2 requires you having played RE5 Lost in Nightmares and having read the files about Wesker in it 6 requires knowledge of 4 and 5.
GewoonYorick Man (4 days ago)
StrongestManKurosawa ok thanks for the info I’ll try to find them online or in stores
GewoonYorick Man (4 days ago)
StrongestManKurosawa and one question is there any game in the series I can play without having to worry about missing story since 7 did not really focus on the main story and more of an new story so you did not have to play a re game to understand the entire story (except from Chris redfield)
StrongestManKurosawa (4 days ago)
GewoonYorick Man Alright, here’s the order for you then RE Origins Collection (contains REmake and 0, 0 is a bit of an iffy game, the collection is$20) CODE:Veronica X (on PSN as a PS2 Classic) Then you follow the rest of the guide starting from 4. If you have the money and a computer, you can buy a PSP (they’re like $40) and hack it to play RE1-3

Ada wong is a double agent. She works with Wesker but I wouldn't be surprised if she was running her own corporation or something. There's way more to her than meets the eye. She's been a double agent since re2. Doing her own crap behind the scenes. No one even knows her true motive. I mean come on, faking her own death. Suddenly returning in re4 to help wesker (though she did her own thing anyway and spared Leon on many occasions.) She probably kept the sample for herself for all we know. It never went into it. People assumed she gave it to Wesker. Then all of a sudden: Whoa she meets leon in re6 again and shes with another group. Not to mention her own mother clones Ada and is reincarnated as another version of her!
