After a few lackluster releases, the Resident Evil series has rightfully reclaimed its throne as one of the best video game franchises of all time. Resident Evil 7: Biohazard and the Resident Evil 2 remake shattered expectations by revamping old Resident Evil gameplay elements. The Resident Evil 2 remake took the monumental gameplay of Resident Evil 4 and combined it with Resident Evil 2's dramatic storyline. The result was a masterpiece.
The following memes may shed light on a Resident Evil game's irregularities or provoke thought in a meaningful way. These memes are meant to be funny and are not to be taken seriously. These are 10 Resident Evil memes that make perfect sense.
10 "What Are You Buying? What Are You Selling? Heh, Heh, Heh"
The ghastly shopkeeper, who offers items at a bargain, doesn't always keep the best supply. Somehow he can move to other areas of the map in an instant, yet he can't sell essential cartridges for shotguns or bullets for magnums. Even if it appears as if he's got a truckload of stock, the merchant somehow rarely has the ammo you need.
The logic of Resident Evil doesn't always hit the mark. We are looking for ammo—not excuses. The merchant must be pulling your leg. He always says "welcome," but maybe he wants to be left alone.
9 Is It Over Yet?
For a period, it seemed like all hope was lost for the Resident Evil franchise. Capcom was an ambitious, diligent development company that released the highest quality games. Starting with Resident Evil 5, Capcom had never looked so bad in the eyes of the public. Then, Resident Evil 6 was an even bigger disaster.
Finally, we got Resident Evil 7: Biohazard. It had flaws but was more on par with Resident Evil. Now we are back to eagerly waiting for the next Resident Evil release.
8 The T-Virus Is All You Need
Forget protein powder! All you need to get ripped is the T-Virus (Tyrant Virus). On another note, isn't it amazing how similar Nick Valentine from Fallout 4 is to Mr. X from Resident Evil 2? The Umbrella Corporation may not be as evil as we make them out to be.
If the T-Virus has muscle-building capabilities, the virus could be altered to work. Sure, a few tests went wrong. As of now, there is a 100% death rate associated with the virus, but that could change with more research and testing.
7 What Is The Meaning Of Life? Resident Evil
The difference between what you think you do and actually do is enough to create this meme. Although you might feel like you go in Rambo-style and defeat all the zombies, you're probably not doing that great judging by your rating score. In the eyes of some people, Resident Evil may seem like an overly violent game.
Memes are about expression, and this meme creator illustrated some fair points. Personal opinions versus reality are often two very different things.
6 They Look Like The Family From Resident Evil 7
There is an uncanny similarity between Resident Evil 7: Biohazard's family and the people in the above photo. One YouTube commenter was so flabbergasted that he made a meme out of it.
Is it much of an exaggeration to say that the two families lookalike? Appearances can be deceiving, and you can't always judge a book by its cover. With that said, these two families have striking similarities, but that says nothing about the type of people they are.
5 Not The First Time This Happened In Resident Evil
Just like in movies, video games sometimes don't make sense, and only blabber can figure out what went wrong. Getting into a heated debate with a friend over a small error in a video game is not worth the time. Ignore what you've seen and move on or it will drive you crazy.
In the Resident Evil 2 remake, there is a scene where Leon meets Claire at the police station. She is on the other side of the gated fence, which appears to be locked. Since both characters found bolt cutters in the same area, why would one of them create an opening in the fence or attempt to climb over? Resident Evil logic be like...
4 Checking Your Phone But It's Not There
There are not many bad statements you can make about this meme. The meme accomplishes what it sets out to do by adding humor and provoking thought. How would you feel if you reached into your pocket and found out your phone wasn't there?
You would be pretty surprised most likely. Mr. X is not surprised, but he looks perplexed in some way. This meme receives a nine out of ten for not taking any chances but for delivering an impeccable, hilarious Resident Evil meme.
3 Nothing Like Eating Brains For Dinner
It became apparent that the house was unsettling early in Resident Evil 7: Biohazard. We could tell that the family who occupied the house was utterly insane during the big feast. After opening your eyes, you are welcomed to this gruesome scene of a family eating what appears to be human intestines.
There's nothing like a good cannibal horror flick, but what we see in Resident Evil 7: Biohazard goes too far. Somehow this meme reminds us of what it's like to meet a close friend's bizarre, old-fashioned family.
2 English Versus The Japanese Version Of Resident Evil 7: Biohazard
The Japanese version of Resident Evil 7: Biohazard is vastly different than North America's. There is much less blood and gore, and the game is overall not as scary. For those who enjoy being terrified by graphic content, this might come as a surprise.
According to Kotaku.com, "Many of the changes center around the hapless deputy David Anderson. Plainly put, he has a very bad time in Resident Evil 7." Not everyone picked up on the fact it was David Anderson, the detective who met the protagonist earlier in the game, whose head was in the refrigerator.
1 Hairdo Still On Point
In Resident Evil 2, Leon S. Kennedy is shot, walks through a sewer, is caught in an explosion, and is gnawed on by multiple zombies. Somehow through all his hardships, Leon's hair doesn't get disheveled the slightest. He must be wearing the stickiest hair wax of all time.
Even getting wet doesn't cause his hairstyle to change. Highlighting a fair point about one of Resident Evil's most beloved characters earns this meme a perfect ten out of ten rating.
