Ahead of the release of Resident Evil Revelations and days before the Resident Evil 6 announcement we asked ONM readers to vote for their best Resident Evil game and Resident Evil 4 came out on top with more than 50% of the votes.

The original Resident Evil, which was re-released on GameCube came second, narrowly beating N64's Resident Evil 2. Resident Evil 3: Nemesis and Resident Evil 3D: The Mercenaries 3D made up the rest of the top five.

ONM forum member Trilbee said: "Resident Evil 4 is a masterful game. It transformed the series from a tense survival horror game with tank-like controls into a frenetic experience that you're too scared to keep playing but don't want to stop."

Of course this could all change next week. With Nintendo 3DS owners already playing the Resident Evil Revelations demo, fans are getting excited ahead of the Resident Evil Revelations release date.

    You should get it now, its brilliant. I would definitely say it is one of the best games on wii. Off the top of my head, the only wii games I can think of that I prefer are the galaxy games, twilight princess, skyward sword, okami and maybe metroid prime.

    I picked 4 as my favourite too. I simply find it to be an incredibly fun game, with great controls, sharp visuals, a classic resident evil script and most importantly riveting gameplay. I don't normally play shooters, but I make an exception for resident evil.

    Resident Evil 4 is one of the top 5 best games ever made. Rightfully deserved.

    Took the series in a new direction gameplay wise and personally I think it worked really well. An amazing game that deserves a lot of credit :D

    I remember watching my Dad play Resi 4 a few years ago. Too scared to play it myself, mind, but I would always make sure he didn't miss a herb, and I would always help him sort his inventory. My then 3 year old sister always thought it said 'President Evil' instead of 'Resident Evil' on the title screen. Still makes me chuckle to this day :)
