The Monster Hunter series is a popular action role-playing game franchise by Capcom. Players become skilled hunters, battling giant monsters in cooperative multiplayer. The games are known for deep combat mechanics, crafting, and a global fanbase which was first curated because of the release of Monster Hunter: World, which was the first one to be released worldwide. So it being the first is understandable. The following are more recent releases with additional events that kept the games alive.
The other two spots and the record-breaking game franchise, Resident Evil, are also no less known. This is a huge feat in the world of the horror genre. This is all due to its captivating storyline, which sticks to its gore and survival aspect. Resident Evil can be defined as a survival horror in which players are tasked to defeat zombies and mutated creatures to accomplish a task.
Congratulations to Capcom for accomplishing this achievement with a horror game, and we wish them the best of luck for more. Now they also remastered Resident Evil 4, so let’s see how it will do on the charts.
