1999’s Resident Evil 3, arguably, was the game that really set the foundations for Resi games as we know them today. It was the first Resi game to escape from claustrophobic interiors and give a wider sense of the chaos which ensued when the T-Virus outbreak (suddenly relevant once more with the real-world Coronavirus threatening to become a pandemic) hit the fictional Raccoon City.
