I think I promised this comparison almost a year ago. Better late than never, I guess :p

I divided the comparison into 6 elements. Each series is judged in story, setting, atmosphere, combat, riddles and originality. I'll explain each category first.

Story - the maturity of the themes present in the plot, its direction, twists and turns, and overall quality.

Setting - the location(s) where the games take place, timeline etc.

Atmosphere - self explanatory. Whether it's light as a feather or heavy and so thick you could cut it with a knife, all have importance here.

Combat - whether it's fun or a chore, clunky or fluid.

Riddles - overall quality, variety, difficulty and originality.

Originality - I have to admit, this category is a bit biased towards Fatal Frame and against Resident Evil, but I thought it's necessary to include it.

The grades are as follows:

1 - very poor
2 - poor
3 - mediocre
4 - good
5 - excellent


||||St|Set|Atm|Com|Rid|Orig
----------------------------------
SH | 5 | 4 | 5 | 2 | 5 | 3
----------------------------------
FF | 4 | 4 | 5 | 4 | 2 | 5
----------------------------------
RE | 2 | 3 | 2 | 4 | 4 | 2
----------------------------------

Totals:

SH = 24
FF = 24
RE = 17


For detailed information, please refer to previous blogposts.


That sounded official :p
