** There was originally going to be an African American character named Dewey, who was going to be 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 original version was going to feature Japanese voice acting. This was scrapped because Creator/ShinjiMikami felt that the performances were subpar. He also thought it was unrealistic that the characters would speak in another language even though they're supposed to be American.



** There was originally going to be an African American character named Dewey who was going to be comic relief. There also was going to be a cyborg character named Gelzer.
** 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."

* TechnologyMarchesOn: Figuring out the slide projector puzzle towards the end of the game requires a general understanding of what slide projectors are and how they work, something many members of a 2015 audience (especially younger gamers) wouldn't have a clue about, given that such projectors have long since been phased out by digital ones (and presentation software like Microsoft [=PowerPoint=]). Similarly, typewriters can be seen all over the place, even though by 1998 standards (when the game takes place), typewriters were heavily phased out and a lot of younger audiences that didn't grow up with the game wouldn't get what a typewriter was.
