Halo, Red Dead Redemption, and other modern games given a retro makeover (gallery)

What if the popular shooter Halo was made a decade earlier? What if Nintendo decided to make a fighting game featuring its stable of characters a console generation earlier than it did with 1999′s Super Smash Bros.? What if the role-playing game Final Fantasy XIII looked more like Final Fantasy VI? Well, they’d all probably be a lot more pixelated, but (as the gallery below shows) they’d still look awfully fun. (Culture, Final Fantasy XIII, GameCube, Halo: Combat Evolved, PC, PS2, PS3, Red Dead Redemption, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Wii, Xbox, Xbox 360)

I'm just glad someone titled them all for us. I wouldn't have gotten Red Dead Redemption.

red dead....
looked spot on to the capcom arcade game "gun smoke".

I can dig all of these. I wish they were real as they would be just great fun to play. The halo meets contra...I thought that when i saw the killzone shot at first.

It looked more contra-ish than the halo one.

The Gunsmoke reference is especially awesome - because Red Dead was originally a Capcom franchise that Rockstar took over.

Batman, MGS4, SSBM and Pikmin looked like they'd still be amazing in retro form
KidBroSweets2  +   810d ago
It's funny cause that's one of the couple I actually guessed right lol. Really cool gallery though. Thumbs up
M_Prime  +   810d ago
pretty cool stuff
guitarded77  +   810d ago
Yeah, it was a fun read, but the pics are too damn small.
stage88  +   810d ago
I really want to play SSBB and LittleBigPlanet in that style. Looks awesome.
M_Prime  +   807d ago
it took me a second to realize SSBB was done SNES style lol.

I want Halo on my gameboy colour :(
sonicsidewinder  +   810d ago

The Brutal Legend one made me laugh ;)

wow Brutal Legend actually would kickass with that 2D style the 3D makes it look goofy.
MrChow666  +   810d ago
I would definitely play most of them

Sweet!
Mottsy  +   810d ago
FFXIII retro doesn't look half bad!! =D
Elderly_Cynic  +   810d ago
Might as well be a screenshot from FFIII.
DragonKnight  +   810d ago
Probably would have played better too.
Tzunoy  +   810d ago
wow turn this in a real deal and might be super-fun.
Elderly_Cynic  +   810d ago
What's the deal with most of the pictures being smaller than a GameBoy screen? Guernica would be much harder to appreciate if it was the size of a postage stamp...
azshorty2003  +   810d ago
I always enjoy seeing de-makes. It makes you wonder if they were actually possible and 'what if'.

SybaRat  +   810d ago
I want to go to there.

+1 bubble for the 30 Rock reference.
n4f  +   810d ago
i dont care what people said but they should release those version of game. im willing to pay
DragonKnight  +   810d ago
I'm with you. Make them into PSN/XBLA titles and I'll throw money at them.
OneAboveAll  +   810d ago
Oh my god, i'd buy these up asap. Who said modern day games still can't be 8/16/32bit!? Scott Pilgrim was a great Arcade game!
Spectator1  +   810d ago
Very cool.

BioShock looks great. And I think I'd prefer a retro styled MGS to a modern 3D one (haven't enjoyed the series since Metal Gear Solid). Make it Kojima!

i'm suprised they didn't take an unedited picture of mw3 and put it in the slideshow as a joke
Ascalon94  +   810d ago
any of these actually playable?
archemides518  +   810d ago
the batman arkham city ones look like it would have been a top notch AAA game back in the day......and it just shows you have far things have come
HalfNerdHalfAmazing  +   810d ago
Halo would suck as a retro game
MerkinMax  +   810d ago
May I ask, why?
HalfNerdHalfAmazing  +   810d ago
Halo look boring in 2d
kesvalk  +   810d ago
SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY! ALL OF IT!!!
Getowned  +   810d ago
Ok, -Holds hand open-
Getowned  +   810d ago
lmao LBP.. Killzone looked badA$$..really cool
Tetsujin  +   810d ago
Make an alternate RDR with the Sunset Riders feel, that alone would pass as a PSN/XBLA game
CanadianTurtle  +   810d ago
Umm okay....all of this is really old to be honest. I've seen these at least 9 months ago. Can't really call it news.

WOW!

that list is actually longer and the images are bigger!

Nice mention

bubble :)
ArtificiallyYours  +   810d ago
I'd love to see these done in Tiger Electronics format....

Damn it I'm a nerd lol.
ufo8mycat  +   810d ago
I'd so play this!!!
TronEOL  +   810d ago
Halo, Killzone, Metal Gear Solid 4, Super Smash, FFXIII, and LBP would be amazing games to play in the format shown. There was also an Uncharted one somewhere on the internet that I thought would be amazing, too (found it).

Damn, too bad we don't have someone devoted enough to try putting these together. Most likely only on PC, but I'd assume anyone would still be able to play them.
