I remember I used to play Resident Evil 1 on my play station at night with my cousins when we where kids... and it would scare the bejesus out of us... I've read great reviews of Resident Evil 4 on game cube and I saw its out on Wii also and it looks awesome... Is it still scary? Is it hard? Do I need to know the story of Resident Evil to understand the game?

There are a few scary moments in the game, specifically a chainsaw wielding maniac.

I didn't think 4 and 5 were that scary but they are great games none-the-less. There were a few moments in the beginning I thought were almost scary, but it wears off...or maybe it's because I've beaten both games so many times that I'm desensitized to it and can't remember my initial play through anymore.

4 is definitely still scary. There was one bit I had to get a friend to do for me because I was just too frightened!

I think RE 1 is most scariest from the start to the middle, while, RE 4 is most scariest from the middle to the end.

RE4 isn't "scary" in the way the previous games were. I would say it's more intense, more reliant on throwing smarter enemies in larger numbers at you, but the atmoshpere is quite different. RE2 is still my favorite (though that may be nostalgia talking), but I think RE4 is the best GAME in the series.

I don't think it's really scary, although hearing the chainsaw rev to life is always good for a jump. Those chainsaw weilding villagers are actually some of the best enemies in the game, now that I think about it.

I'd say that while most of the game is more intense than scary... There are times when you control another character and those event are rather unsettling considering you have no way to defend yourself other than running and evading the best you can...

RE4 was my first RE, and I played it in the dark with headphones on. That was awesome! I personally was never quite "scared" much, but I had moments where the atmosphere and tension got to me, increased heart rate, etc. Also, lots of walking and listening for enemy noises around corners. :p

There's an enemy that's hard to kill. It sounds creepy.

This is more of a sidestory from the other games in the series, So you don't have to be familiar with the backstory to enjoy it. It's not particularly hard ( but you can adjust the difficulty), but it is VERY LONG for an action game, even though it's one of the best games I've ever played, and though each new location offers something cool and unique, you may feel a little fatigued with all the goodness. I've played it all the way through 5 times since it first came out, and it still amazes me how much is crammed into one game.

If it's RE4, yes. I believe it's $20 now which is an awesome deal.

RE4 is pretty scary. The wolfs, chainsaw dudes and regenerators are all really scary. But, even if you don't find it scary, it's still an amazing game. RE5 on the other hand ...

The best strategy in the game: go up stairs and pause balls.

Ah man, the first time you encounter the wolves is pretty creepy. It's dark, and with the lightening you see only flashes of them at first, but you hear them growling. Then their backs rip open like something from John Carpenter's "The Thing" and tentacles whip out towards you...all of this in the dark, it's creepy as...heck.

RE1 is the scariest that I've played. RE4 and RE5 are really not that scary except for a few isolated parts. They are still tremendous games. In fact, I like RE4 more than RE1 despite it not being as scary.

EDIT: They are easier than RE1 if you can use that as a reference. You do not need to play RE1 to understand the story of RE4 and RE5.
