6. Resident Evil 4 (GC, PS2) - Giant midget statue
Resident Evil 4 not only revolutionized the RE series - it changed perceptions of what a survival-horror game could be. But like all the other games in this feature, even it had moments when mind-blowing horror gave way to abject silliness. Our personal favorites were the comic excesses of pint-sized villain Ramon Salazar, including a colossal statue carved in his own petite image:
It was obvious just from looking at this thing that it was eventually going to chase us, so when it finally broke free from its moorings and lumbered in our direction, we couldn't keep from laughing. It was creepy, maybe, but compared to the rest of the monsters that inhabit the game, it wasn't exactly scary.
