With increased resolution, touched up textures, exclusive files tying this installment to past and future releases, remastered music, and a budget of $1 million dollars, this N64 port of Resident Evil 2 is considered one of the best versions of the game released. Housing more than 500 MB of data, RE2 is also one of heaviest N64 cartridges ever made.
And I fucking traded it in when I was twelve like an asshole.
I can’t even place myself in my own shoes back then, on that darkest of days. What was my rationale? “This is my favoritest game of all time…but it’s worth a whole four dollars.

I wish I could Kyle Reese my way a decade back and scream into my past self’s stupid, pubescent face.
