5? where did the other 1 come from? or are you counting rebirth as a new one? Tis just RE, but with a few changes to plot, major changes to graphics and a new control mechanism.
I dunno, i can't agree with that at all about RE not being playable, 1 and 2 on the psx were awesome at the time, alone in the dark was the same kind of game, but it was really crappy next to RE played much worse, especially the later ones.
I'd rather play RE to doom anyday, doom was so boring, it was the slightest bit not as crap as wolfenstein 3d, but fps didn't get good until much later. Networking was the only saving grace for doom imo, i mean the thing made you car sick and sea sick at the same time, with the mediocre environments and samey gameplay made you want to blow your own
Back to RE, Nemisis, 3 kinda sucked, 2 wasn't as good as 1 by half, Remake owns 1-3... so much better, and 4 was shit hot and makes them all look crap in comparison. Big change, yet feels just like RE in all ways.
I count 4 games though (the fact the latest has 4 in the title hints at that), if you've never played Rebirth its essentially RE1, but actually f*ckin cool, plays so much better
Deadaim and survivor can't really be counted as RE, no more than those shit philips CDI games made by Philips can be counted as Zelda games.
