NPD Group has revealed the list of the top 10 best-selling Resident Evil titles in the US through February 2020. The figures includes physical and digital full game downloads, but not DLC sales.

Resident Evil 5 is the best-selling game in the franchise in the US based on dollars, followed by Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil 2. The remake for Resident Evil 2 comes in sixth place.

The most recent release, the remake of Resident Evil 3, is missing from the chart as it just released last week and the figures provided are through February 2020. It is also possible the remake for Resident Evil 2 could keep climbing the chart as it continues to sell.

Here is the list of the top selling Resident Evil Games in the US:

  1. Resident Evil 5
  2. Resident Evil 4
  3. Resident Evil 2
  4. Resident Evil 7: Biohazard
  5. Resident Evil 6
  6. Resident Evil 2 (2019 remake)
  7. Resident Evil
  8. Resident Evil 3: Nemesis
  9. Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City
  10. Resident Evil Director's Cut

I know many disliked RE5, but quality of a RE couch coop experience is one of the best I've experienced. I wonder if those that disliked RE5 just never had a good buddy/significant other to play with? I find that's key for enjoying RE5 as it seemed like playing it coop was what Capcom was aiming for. But i could be wrong, there could be coop buddies that also hated the game xD

RE5 was awesome. Yes, highly action-oriented but an awesome game, and as V-r0cK pointed it out, an amazing co-op game. I never got the hate for it. Now RE6 was indeed a crime against humanity...

If you can't play the game by yourself then it's not really a survivor horror. For the record I beat it with a friend because I found it extremely frustrating otherwise. Then there were brilliant moments like the Chris rock punching.

How do they combine sales? Like what platforms do 4 count as? Or what about 1 remake on all platforms etc. Just curious

Why isn't the Resident Evil 1 remake on there? Did it actually do that poorly? Worse than Operation Raccoon City even? :O
