Resident Evil 4, known in Japan as Biohazard 4, is a third-person shooter survival horror video game developed and published by Capcom. The sixth major installment in the Resident Evil series, the game was originally released for the GameCube in North America and Japan in January 2005, and in Europe and Australia in March 2005. The story of Resident Evil 4 follows the U.S. government special agent Leon S. Kennedy, who is sent on a mission to rescue Ashley Graham, the U.S. President's daughter whom a sinister cult has kidnapped. Traveling to a rural area of Spain, Leon fights hordes of violent villagers and reunites with the mysterious spy Ada Wong.

First hinted at in December 1999, Resident Evil 4 underwent a long development time during which four proposed versions of the game were discarded. Initially developed for the PlayStation 2, the first attempt was directed by Hideki Kamiya after producer Shinji Mikami requested him to create a new entry in the Resident Evil series. Nevertheless, it was decided to start development over again. The game was intended to be a GameCube exclusive as part of the Capcom Five, but a PlayStation 2 version was announced before the game was released for the GameCube. Resident Evil 4 was subsequently released for Microsoft Windows, Wii, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and in downsized versions for iOS, Zeebo, and Android (exclusive to Samsung devices outside of Japan).

Resident Evil 4 garnered critical acclaim. It received multiple Game of the Year awards for 2005 and was seen as a successful cross-platform hit that influenced the evolution of the survival horror and third-person shooter genres. The game pioneered and popularized the "over the shoulder" third-person view perspective in video games. It is widely considered to be one of the best video games of all time. A sequel, Resident Evil 5, was released in 2009.

This is one of my favorite games of all time. I was an avid gamer who used to play like 8 hours a day. Switching to the new game as soon as I completed it. But this game like "Shadow of Rome" was way too good. I loved organizing my weapons, inventory. The fact that everything is so scarce in the game, including bullets, grenades, health kits. Guns like PRL and hand cannon were cool. The Mercenaries mode was epic. Playing with Jack Krouser was something else. This has been my all time favourite game by a long way.

For me this is the best Resident Evil and at least one of the best games ever released. This is how you have to make a sequel! It brought a new genre and new mechanics into the video game industry. Also, settings are amazing and it's just super interesting to play it!
