Capcom’s 1996 Resident Evil defined survival horror as a game genre. However, it wasn’t without cringy moments. Here’s some of our favourites.
1. Jill Sandwich
Barry: That was too close! You were almost a Jill sandwich!
Of course, we had to start the list off right with the most iconic line from the game.
Ugh. Now, I’m hungry…
2. Is That You?
Rebecca: Chris! It’s me Rebecca! Chris: Is that YOU Rebecca?
Stressful situations can make it hard to remember things, but really Chris?
3. TAKE. A. LOOK. AT. THIS!
Barry: I’m going to find out what caused Forest’s death. It looks like he was killed by a crow or something!
The only thing more butchered than Forest in this Resident Evil scene is how these lines are delivered.
4. Ultimate Disappointment
Wesker: Chris… Stop it.
Okay, so this one is more about delivery than what’s said. Albert Wesker might be everyone’s favourite villain, but he’s not without his flaws. In the scene where he introduces Tyrant, Chris laughs and Wesker just comes off as whiny.
5. It’s Really P O W E R F U L!
Barry: It’s a weapon. It’s really powerful, especially against living things.
It’s true, not all weapons are made equal.
However, we can all agree that all of them are powerful against living things.
6. Speech 100
Barry: We should start from the first floor, okay? And, Jill, here’s a lock pick. It might be handy if you, the master of unlocking, take it with you.
For our final entry on this list is another oddly phrased and paced out by our favourite “master of dialogue”.
