Thanks to games like Resident Evil, Dead Space and Signalis, a long forgotten relic of the 90s has come roaring back into relevance. Survival horror is back and bigger than ever – but where is one of it’s flagship franchises?

Today we’ll be exploring Parasite Eve, a series that is as chaotic as it is brilliant, combining Final Fantasy with Silent Hill and Stephen King with Stephen Hawking. It may be an iconic PlayStation franchise – but where it is now and why did it disappear?

It's part critique, part retrospective, part review and part history lesson - obviously full of spoilers and obviously full of my opinions.
