Of just the mainline games which I suppose should include Revelations 1 and 2, which game do you think has the best story?

I've played through 0, 1, 4 and 5 over the past few weeks and I'd probably say 5 had the strongest story of that bunch.

6 has the best story and all the characters stories come together

Probably 5 because it warps up the Umbrella storyline imo which they later butchered with the Neo Umbrella and Blue Umbrella garbage in 6 and 7 but still, killing Wesker brought the series to a proper closure for the 4 protagonists(even though Leon and Claire weren't there) as he was the last remnant that tied them with the nightmares of Umbrella.
The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.

I liked 5 the best. Probably has more to do with the acting and presentation than the writing though.

I have a soft spot for Code Veronica. Despite all the (charming) sillyness there is a decently interesting and fun story. 5 sucked ass. Generic action movie crap and ruined Wesker and Spencer's backstory in a single scene. (Wesker Children) Also besides Wesker who is atleast somewhat fun everyone is forgettable. Chris is a generic tough guy soldier and Sheva and Josh are boring as hell. Oh, Jill was ruined too btw. It "ties up the story"? Yeah and does a horrible job doing it.

Original 3. They were simple, fun and to the point and laid some fun lore to get into. It got convoluted the further they got and made a mess of it.

For a single game, OG 2 easily. However, if multiple games can be counted, then the OG trilogy as the Umbrella arc is great and it was still somewhat grounded sci-fi. Later games from 4 on had crappy unrealistic s*** like alien parasites, giant statues chasing you, clones, etc.

OG 2 & 3.

CV lead nowhere, 4 was a side story, 5 was decent but cheesy as f*** and 6 was just bad.

7 was decent though.
