Wisdom from Resident Evil

It all started way back in 1996. In a darkened room - back to the wall, shotgun in hand - we realised we'd fallen ammo-over-heels in love with the most horrifying game we'd ever experienced: Resident Evil.

A staggering 18 years on, the series has continued to provide top-draw brain-spraying action. But it's not the zombies that keep the ShortList.com team coming back for more - it's the characters. Witty, rugged and insightful, they never fail to entertain.

We've collected together our favourite words of wisdom from the series, from Wesker's chilling put-downs to Redfields' irrepressible optimism. Let us know in the comments below if we missed any gems.
