The 10 Best Video Game Remakes

Eskimo Press: One of the best features of new generations of gaming platforms is how they can help breathe new life into the games we love and used to play the heck out of. XBLA and PSN offer plenty of HD remakes and ports, a lot of classics are finding new life on iOS and Android devices, Nintendo’s virtual console has a substantial catalogue, and the PC & Mac offer various ways to relive long-time favorites. When it comes to remakes, it can be a touchy subject. Many of us like our games the way they were, and things can go sour real quick if a remake is not handled with care. Thankfully, there are a lot of great remakes out there, and here are our picks for the ten best video game remakes, in no particular order. (GameCube, Nintendo DS, PC, PS2, PS3, Wii, Xbox, Xbox 360)

Wish Sega would do something with Shenmue other than condemning it to the forgotten dungeon of great IPs.

Oh wait thats right, they are too busy farming out great licenses to (usually) great devs so they can butcher a franchise in the name of making monies...*cough* Aliens.

Yes, want more shenmue! How about finally getting the third one? even a remake of the first two would be awesome

Megaman X for the PSP, god dammit! ARGHHH!!!!
Twin Snakes! Yeah I enjoyed it. So what?!

And the Resident Evil Re-make is the best remake of all time. Oh, mannnn! Them graphics at the time were so good.

Twin Snakes was awesome.

Capcom should really look to the RE remake for inspiration on how they can get the Resident Evil series back on track.. although it might be too late after RE 5 & 6 :/

I thought RE5 was horrible, i changed my mind right after i played RE6, it is HORRENDUS!!!!!!!!!
RE5 is awesome if you compare it to RE6

Wow a lot of Twin Snakes fans in here. I usually get blasted for loving that game but what's not to love? Classic MGS remade with comparable graphics to 2/3 with the same gameplay.

Oot, Halo, RE were all amazing and DQ7 looks amazing also. Lots of great remakes on the ds/3ds.
