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. (Final Fantasy VIII, PC, PS3, Resident Evil 2, Super Metroid, Wii, Xbox 360)

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.
StarFox  +   1101d 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!!!

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.

No games need remakes.
xstreetsweeperx  +   1101d ago
I would have to disagree with that statement. I think that certain games should be remade but for the right reasons.
Them_Bones  +   1101d ago
Nope everyone would just complain about everything different from the original.
dennett316  +   1101d 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

I'd rather developers focus on the present and the future as opposed to trying to cash in on old games I've already played.

This generation has been so full of great ideas, why look back? Don't get me wrong, I still play classic games from time to time, but I don't buy into the whole HD remake deal.
xstreetsweeperx  +   1101d ago
Honestly, I think that the HD remake deal does have its advantages. I mean, If you can't find a classic title that you want to play and they offer a brand new better version of it on a current gen platform your gonna buy it. I mean if its not a hard find then there is no point in getting it. For example MGS Peace walker came with the xbox 360 version of the MGS HD Collection. That was a new experience for me as I haven't gotten around to getting a PSP
ChunkyLover53  +   1101d ago
I'm not totally against them, I bought the God Of War Collection and Halo CEA, but I think it should be a really loved game or something that was amazing and that deserves to be updated. Some of these HD remakes are games that were average last generation to begin with.
xstreetsweeperx  +   1101d ago
I mean, If they were previously exclusives such as MGS than its worth getting them on xbox etc. Come games work better with the hd collections others not so much though
CrescentFang  +   1101d ago
I totally agree with you...
I admit I've only bought ICO & Shadow of the Colossus HD, but if BC were available I don't think this kind of thing would have ever happened.
I guess I enjoy my remakes once in while, but I'd rather have a brand new game in the series (despite what RE has become) than a remake.

The Thing. That game was ahead of its time in some ways and is way overdue for a remake.
MacDonagh  +   1101d ago
One game that no-one will ever remake would be Weaponlord for the Snes.
Kyosuke_Sanada  +   1101d ago
The first Killzone. If they made that online compatible (especially with all protagonists in it's campaign as well) I would play this game more than I did the second installment.

Def Jam Fight for New York.. The best fighting game ever released
CLOUD1983  +   1101d ago
FFVII, Xenogears, Legend of Dragoon, RE2&3 & SH1 those games deserve a remake more than any other imo they r all PSX classics & the best of the best of their genre (JRPG, Horror Surviving).
