While sequels tend to receive all the glory in literary and visual work, prequels generally offer a more compelling experience. Prequels tell a story that takes place prior to the events of the original work and are generally intended to provide a better understanding of ambiguous or untold events that occurred throughout the original work. Given that prequels by definition will end up providing audiences with a better understanding of storyline elements and the characters involved, they serve a far greater purpose than a forced sequel does. The following are the 10 greatest prequels in video game history.
10. Resident Evil Zero
Recently remastered in HD for all current consoles, Resident Evil Zero is no longer a GameCube exclusive, and hopefully with its new wider audience Resident Evil Zero can be discovered by audiences that missed this true gem the initial time around. Resident Evil Zero takes place just before the events of the original Resident Evil. It is one of the final Resident Evil titles to be an authentic horror experience, and frankly is one of the final Resident Evil titles to be released that is any good. Resident Evil Zero is much more than “good,” as its excellent gameplay and switching mechanics between the two protagonists are ingeniously developed. Re-introducing the character of Rebecca Chambers from the original game along with new playable character Billy Coen, Resident Evil Zero answers a significant amount of series questions and proves essential to the franchise canon.http://www.technobuffalo.com/2015/12/09/resident-evil-zero-release-date-costumes/ Source: Technobuffalo.com
