List Rules Vote up the worst Resident Evil games, and downvote the ones you actually like.

When a gaming franchise has existed for as long as Resident Evil has, there are bound to be some bad games that just don't deliver. With that in mind, let's rank the worst Resident Evil games ever made, spanning every console and sub-genre.

It's hard to argue that Resident Evil Gaiden isn't the worst Resident Evil game of all time. This Game Boy Advance title is a far departure from the original RE, as it features a top down view that switches to first-person during a zombie encounter. It seems like most bad Resident Evil games are spinoffs - Umbrella Corps, Resident Evil Survivor, and Resident Evil: Dead Aim are all looked at unfavorably by most fans.

How does Resident Evil 7 fit into the picture, given that it's the newest entry in the franchise? The game was reviewed very positively, but wasn't nearly as commercially successful as Resident Evil 5 and 6. No matter which Resident Evil game you think is the worst, vote up the titles that you hated, and downvote the ones that you think shouldn't be considered "bad."
