After browsing a few of the RE games, i've come to realize i've helped several friends play through parts of RE games, but i've never played through one myself.

Should I just start with the classic first game, or maybe skip it, and jump right into the best game of the series, and then play others as I feel interested?

Start with the remakes. RE games are not very long and each can be completed in a couple of hours. If you like retro(or you have playstation 1-3) you can try originals too(except first RE, trust me)

I was asking my self same question in almost same situation. I played classic parts on my PS1 and RE5 on a PC. After research I came to a conclusion that best one might be the RE4 as it was (based on the reviews) most welcomed part of the franchise not only by fans of the series, but also by players who played few or non of the other RE games. So it looks to me like a good game on its own and as part of the series.

Only the first part and 0 remained classic in terms of gameplay. All others are quite modern. Perhaps it makes sense to start with new ones, before the inventory management in RE0 scares away from further games, and everything is quite good there. But if you play old games, you are not afraid of slightly outdated mechanics and visuals, then you can do it in order.

Or you can start with RE 2(remake) and jump to RE 4. IMO best RE games out there. If It ain't Wong, it's just wrong.

Just skip Re5 and 6 unless you like pure action games, but those titles don't have RE's essence at all.

IMO, you can start with any of ReHD, Re4, Re2 or Re7. You'll be on the right path to keep on with the series.

Cof cof skip 5 and 6 cof cof

If you are completely new to the series, start with RE7 followed by RE8 since these two are essentially new 'dilogy' and in a way a 'soft reboot' (actually not, but still very easy for newcomers to dive into).

is there a good reason to play the games in the chronological release date? for the story understanding or else? I only played the PS1 version too
I inflige myself to finish first Assassins Creed befor to touch origins, odyssee and valhalla but it could take me years lol

yes, the games have a sequential plot and events generally develop in numerical order. but if you just want to play something you like better - don't deny yourself anything, you can understand all the input and output conditions in a few seconds.

I pretty much like them all, they all have their ups and downs, but overall it's a great franchise, been playing since PS1, and I can tell you for sure that those remakes are just breathtaking, love them all, If you wanna start in way to follow up the story, start with the first one, Resident Evil HD Remaster or RE Zero, but if you don't like fixed camera you gonna have a really hard time, so just skip to RE 2 remake, then follow up with RE 3, RE 4, RE 5 and so on, tbh those stories doesn't really connect that much, but if you wanna skip just to play the collest ones, I would say RE 2, RE 4 and some might say I'm wrong in this one, but RE 7 aswell, most RE fanatics would say that RE 7 is not RE and bla bla bla, but for me, who really likes some FPS games, playing RE 7 in first person was just something else, best experience ever, really wanna try RE Village as soon as possible.
