Why HD Collections Are Great

There are times when there is just way too many games to play. With the complete lack of time available to do anything in life, you won't ever get to play every game that you want. This is true for both old and new games that are released or have been around for a very long time. Even though most gamers out there will make the effort to go back and find copies of games they have missed out on before, many more just don't have the time or the will to search for older games they skipped over. Enter the HD Collection. A little something that many take for granted. It brings not only some great value in one package but also enhances the original experience for everyone who missed out and anyone who wants to jump back in for another go.

Ok, how are some of those HD collections? God Of War I can see and some of the others, but not all over them are HD. They came to PS3.

Killzone Trilogy has been a great buy so far, really enjoying Killzone HD and I will be doing new playthroughs of Killzone 2 and Killzone 3 and spending a LOT of time in Killzone 3's multiplayer since I have all the DLC now

And I just see cheap cash-ins that cover for a lack of being able to develop titles. Anything beyond a FPS anyway.

Though I do like the idea of being able to play some of the Ratchet and Clank titles.

Heh, I think your post sums up how a lot of people probably feel - these are cheap cash-ins ... but I kinda want to get that one ... and that one ...

After the closure of Zipper it looks like an HD Collection may be the only hope of seeing a good SOCOM game again...

As a gamer for over almost thirty years it's sad that I'm more excited for HD remakes than most of the "new" titles coming out.

karlowma1378d ago

I play my SNES far more than my X360 and PS3 combined.

HD is over-rated. Lol.

MacUser19861378d ago

I hear that mate, the game I was really excited about this year were the remakes of Doom 3, KillZone and Nights into Dreams. Nothing new or excited anymore though I cannot wait for Sly 4.

Soldierone1378d ago

Yeah kinda sad I was more excited to buy a game that came out 20 years ago more than anything this Fall lol

they are great if you dont have a 4 year old desktop pc or newer, if you do, and can follow very basic instructions, they are a blatant rip-off

pcsx2 plays 99% of ps2 games in 1080p at 60 frames with anti aliasing which these "hd" remakes never seem to have enough of and aren't full hd as they are usually 720p and only run at 30 frames

on pcsx2 you can play games like persona 3 and 4, kingdom hearts 1 and 2, fatal frame 1 and 2 and 3, ffx, ffx-2, ffxii, ect...ect...ect....

nearly any ps2 game, just pop the original disc in your pc's dvd drive, launch pcsx2, sonfigure your xbox 360 or ps3 controller however you want and play

with a few other emulators you can play nearly all wii games, gamecube, ps1, ds, psp, snes, nes, genisis, ect...

I know there are many people who don't want to fuss with it and i get that, but I'm telling you, if you put the time in, you can get the best possible "hd" remake on pc for free if you own the original disc.

here's a link to pcsx2 site, it rocks, it does take about 10 min to set up, just follow the included read me or I think there is also a tutorial on the website and definatly one on youtube.
