* FirstInstallmentWins: The general consensus is that the first movie is the only one that doesn't suck, due to a variety of reasons. To name a few: the movie didn't go overboard on action, there was virtually no relation with the game's canon aside from Umbrella and the fact an outbreak had occurred within one of their labs, etc. ''Apocalypse'' throws all that out of the window and imports several characters from the games and makes them unrecognizable, makes Alice an unbeatable super-human who steals all the spotlight and tries to connect with the game's canon by basing itself on [=RE3's=] storyline.

*** Actually, 3D controls for Resident Evil games is a OlderThanTheyThink trope application because the Nintendo64 [[PolishedPort port]] of ''Resident Evil 2'' actually featured an alternate option for 3D controls, albeit not as refined as the 3D control featured in the HD remaster of the ''Resident Evil'' remake.

* ItsTheSameNowItSucks: [[InternetBackdraft Fan reaction]] to the [=GameCube=] ports of ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil2'', ''[[VideoGame/ResidentEvil3Nemesis 3]]'', and ''[[VideoGame/ResidentEvilCodeVeronica Code: Veronica]]'' fell under this, as they came after the ''[[VideoGame/ResidentEvil REmake]]'' and happened to be straight ports of the initial [=PlayStation=] and Dreamcast releases. [[FanDumb It should be noted, however, that Capcom had already announced that those three games would not be receiving the same treatment and the releases would just be ports]].

* TheScrappy: Alice is one for the entire ''Resident Evil'' franchise due to her status as the CreatorsPet to a degree where she makes the main characters of the games play second fiddle to her.

** Rebecca. Poor girl went through quite a lot of crap in both RE0 and RE1.

** Rebecca. Poor girl went through quite a lot of crap in both RE0 ''[=RE0=]'' and RE1.''[=RE1=]''.



*** This becomes more obvious whenever a fight scene happens with a canon character from the video games. In ''every fight'', Alice comes in to make the save, even ''when she doesn't need to''.
*** Averted in ''Retribution''; while Alice does end up saving everyone's ass a couple of times, the Strike Team and Ada both kick a fair amount of ass without her help.

** The series' trademark [[ScrappyMechanic "tank controls"]] have been a divisive issue for gamers for years (case in point: see article and [[http://kotaku.com/key-changes-make-the-newest-version-of-resident-evil-a-1680713415 comments section, here]]). Some defend the controls because they work in conjunction with the series use of pre-rendered backgrounds and fixed camera angles. Others couldn't understand why Creator/{{Capcom}} stubbornly refused to allow for normal 3D controls, until almost 20 years later, when Capcom ''finally'' relented in the HD remake of the original RE.
