Why We Should Not Remake Old Games

Don't care, still want Killer Instinct 3 and a new Road Rash.

Agreed, leave them as they belong.

depends on the game. remakes are an opportunity for younger gamers to play some good games for the first time. a remake cannot take away anything from the original. it is its own entity. the only way it could would be if george lucas was involved

Agreed.

While not everything should be remade there are exceptions. Like Freespace, or any space combat sim. Except X-Wing/TIE Fighter if LucasArts is involved in anything more than granting permission to use the license.

I would prefer new and original ideas, but there are a few games out there that need to brought into this gen.

Agree completely its time to bring new ideas, concepts, storylines, and above all else innovation to the gaming industry instead of spending time and money on remaking last gen games.

I think this person just wanted to tell everyone that he thinks ff10 is better than ff7, and that he doesn't care for diablo2.

I loved resident evil and metal gear solid as a kid, and I'm loving the remakes as a grown up kid, that's all I know.
