Yeah I didn't really take into account the GameCube versions might be priced pretty highly. I bought mine as they were released, so I guess they've become something of collector's items. The only reason I like the CG versions is because I have the full series on one system and I still play them on the Wii to this day. You can't beat playing through all six games from 0-4 in sequence.

Get them on whatever system you can find them for at the price you're willing to play.

I had a much better time with the original than the remake. Mind you, I played the original right when it was released on the PSX in the systems earlier days, and man...It was all sorts of ground breaking, an experience unlike any other(Meh, forget Alone in the dark for the PC, this was the real deal as 'survival horror' goes). Just hearing these characters interacting with each other with real voice acting completely blew me away. I also found some of the brightly lit rooms/hall ways in the original creepier than constantly relying on everything being Dark & gothic in the remake.

By the time the remake came out, i was kind of tired with Resident Evil. 4 games released in the franchise with the remake being the 5th that weren't exactly much different from one another was getting a little stale. Had i played the remake as my first trip into ResiVille i'd think differently. But it didn't have a big impact on me, not even remotely close when stacked up to the original that started it all.

I even went through it for a 2nd time last year and my feelings are still the same. Still, for those new to the franchise i guess it is best to just start out with the remake...But the big downside would be the complete step down in graphics when moving onto RE2 & RE3, which is why i'd recommend starting out with the PSX original that started it all. ;) Besides, the remake is quite different in many ways than the original, you'll get different experiences with both games.

I'd still recommend the wii versions of Remake, Zero and especially RE4(pointer controls) not only because they're cheaper but because with Zero and the remake you have the option to use the Wii remote sideways 'NES style' or the classic controller aside from the cube controller. The D-pad just feels much better and more tactile to use with these traditional RE games, rather than using that bogus GCN stick. :p
