I'm not sure what else can be said about Resident Evil 2. It's a damn near flawless remake and a damn near flawless video game. It's scary, engaging, addictive and a whole lot of fun. If you want to start your gaming year off right, play Resident Evil 2. It's my favourite game of all time and might be the best one ever made.
