Games That Deserve a Remake (But Probably Won’t Get One)

TGC writes: Having a classic game remade is like a guilty pleasure – it simply feels wrong, but feels completely right at the same time. The worry with remakes is that it may tarnish the memories and gameplay of the original game – Diddy Kong Racing DS, for example, was a very poor remake of an already enjoyable game. But there are certain games that cry out for a do-over, with numerous reasons why. However, the chances of certain games that would probably benefit from a remake are next to nothing. So, without further ado, I give you my list of games that deserve to be remade, but never will.

im still wondering why capcom never fully remade re2 & re3 on the gamecube, it was practically a goldmine.d

Forgive me for asking, but didn't RE2 and 3 come out on gamecube? I've always wanted to play them but never got the chance. I see you said fully remade, so I'm guessing that they held something back? I saw RE2 for the gamecube for sale the other week at a used game store but didn't have the money to get it.

Yes, RE 2 + 3 were re-released for the gamecube, but they didn't receive a cosmetic makeover like REmake.

They were just ports of the ps1 version with smoothed out textures. Res1 remake was rebuilt from the ground up. Story and all. Res 2 would have been a very large game to be remade. At the time I think they were focusing on Res4 completion.

StarFox1379d ago

they have re2 & 3 both for gamecube but they are just ports, they aren't remakes.

O.M.G Super metroid remade as a fps by retro studios would be EPIC!!!

SuicidalTendencies1379d ago

If they did remake RE2 I would hope they'd do it like the remake of RE1. I don't want them mixing in the RE4 style with it and screw up a great game. Leave the classics alone.

I would have to disagree with that statement. I think that certain games should be remade but for the right reasons.

Them_Bones1379d ago

Nope everyone would just complain about everything different from the original.

dennett3161379d ago

@Them Bones, I disagree entirely. The Resident Evil remake received no such criticism. I'd love them to re-release that game in widescreen HD, as well as give similar treatment to 2 and 3. Plenty of other old school Resi fans would appreciate it as well considering the direction the series is heading.

the best remake ever that remakes should be measured to is halo 1 Combat Evolved anniversary, honorable mentions, resi 1 gamecube and MGS twin snakes on Gamecube
