This poll is now closed.
I played them in this order: 2 > 1 > 3 but completed them all without any guide in this order 2 > 3 > 1 since I have no access to internet back in the day (my country is poor during the 90's) and couldn't buy EGM magazines to look for a walkthrough.

The internet wasn't all that great back when the originals came out. It threw me for a loop when i first tried arrange mode on directors cut, and everything was in different places.

Yes, 3, 1 and then 2. No guides.

After finishing the first one a few times, I looked up unlockable rewards, but aside from the requirements, never used guides.

The games aren’t “hard,” just take trial & error to figure out the proper path to take.
For any whom this post happens to offend, I can get you a great deal on a spine.

RE2 was the first one I beat. Originally rented it and got lost, had to rent it again another weekend to eventually get through it. No guide though,

I never beat RE1 until years and years later (like 2008?) because I didn't actually own it. I borrowed it from a cousin and got stuck looking for a MO disk or something near the end. Eventually pick it up for an emulator and got through on my own.

RE3 I pretty liberally used a magazine guide for, though it was only half of the game as I never got the other issue. It helped a lot with the random elements and gunpowder mixing.
23,000 Days in the fire was long enough, Robin, you've gone home...

I'm the one that likes to find out secrets, that said, i did beat RE Deadly Silence without one because Internet wasn't as great back then.

I remember for RE3 at least I had a gaming magazine with like 17 pages of walkthrough and how about which ammo to combine and all my friends wanted to borrow that issue from me. Those were the days.

I somehow got the "best" ending when playing RE1 on my first playthrough.
I thought the MO Disks were important and essential to completing the game, so I made sure I looked every nook and cranny for them.

I still remember that satisfaction I felt when I decoded the "John" puzzle all by myself.

And yeah, I didn't get internet until later.
