Here's a fan-made Resident Evil 1 remake in first-person

It just won't stay dead.

Though not complete, in the current beta you can explore the halls of Spencer Mansion with WASD controls and headshot zombies with your mouse like God intended. It's being made in Unity, and is currently so bare bones you'll need to press Alt-F4 to quit, but it's neat that it even exists. As Aiken's page carefully notes, "This game is made only for fans and was made without any intention to make profit."

If you prefer the more polished HD look of the modern versions, there's also someone out there with a project in the works to remake Resident Evil in Unreal Engine 4, again in first-person, though that one doesn't have a playable build available. Of course, you could go completely in the other direction and play Resident Evil 8 in third-person. You've got a lot of options is what I'm saying.
