** The game was originally conceived to be played from a first person perspective.perspective, but shifted it to fixed camera angles like in ''VideoGame/AloneInTheDark''. While spinoff games such as the ''VideoGame/ResidentEvilGunSurvivor'' series and the ''[[VideoGame/ResidentEvilTheUmbrellaChronicles Chronicles]] [[VideoGame/ResidentEvilTheDarksideChronicles Duology]]'' were in first person (or a mix thereof with ''Dead Aim''), the main series proper didn't go first person until ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil7Biohazard''.



** The infamous hallway where the zombie dogs burst through the windows had a giant spider crawling along the ceiling instead in the beta. This would have changed the tempo of the horror considerably at this point of the game. The spiders do appear in the hallway in the final version of the game after you snag the Helmet Key from the guardhouse.

* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: As briefly mentioned under the YMMV tab, the [=PlayStation=] Network only features the ''Dual Shock Edition'' [green "Greatest Hits" label, zombie box art] of the ''Director's Cut'', which is the version with the contentious new soundtrack. The first ''Director's Cut'' [black label, original Chris box art] release has the classic soundtrack, but it either has to be found on the secondhand market (and is still relatively cheap, thankfully) or downloaded and played on an emulator. The same goes for the untouched and somewhat rarer 1996 original, but that one's effectively built into the ''Director's Cut'' anyway. This isn't the case for the PAL version of the Playstation Network, which only has the original, non-Dual Shock ''Director's Cut'' (with the old soundtrack) which Europe never got.

** There was originally going to be an African American character named Dewey, who was going to be a comic relief. There also was going to be a cyborg character named Gelzer. He would have saved the protagonist by holding the ceiling trap.

** The remake's Real Survival mode removes the auto-aim features and makes it so that item boxes are not interconnected, which was the way things were originally going to be in the original game until play testers complained that it made the game too hard. The unlock message for the mode even lampshades it: "This is the prototype feature that existed even before [the] first ''Resident Evil'' game."

* ThrowItIn: Real Survival mode in the ''[=REmake=]''. By default, all item boxes are linked so you can get your items anywhere and there's auto aim (although this was not present in the original game). According to the description of Real Survival, the prototype of original game had it where the item boxes weren't linked at all. The game mode emulates this and manual aim for the ChallengeGamer.
* VaporWare: The UsefulNotes/GameBoyColor port was very near to completion when it was canned. Naturally, the ROM eventually found its way to cyberspace, so even though it was never released it's still possible to play it.
