The Metal Gear Solid Remake Rumor: When is a Remake Necessary?

Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima has recently shot down a rumor stating that he is searching for a studio that would be willing to remake the 1998 classic Metal Gear Solid. Whether or not a second MGS remake will be in the works, it raises the important questions of if and when a remake for a game is necessary. (Hideo Kojima, Industry, Konami, Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes, Retro, Silicon Knights)

I want Metal Gear 1-2 remake with FOX Engine for PS4One!!

It would be really really awesome to see Solid Snake vs Big Boss in FOX Engine.

or Rising 2 featuring Gray Fox for PS4One is good too!

I'd also want to see what'd happen if MG1/MG2 put you in the....eye of Big Boss as WELL as Solid Snake, like a two-part game where it'd remake Solid Snakes mission but also give us Big Boss fans a side of the emotional tragedies that Big Boss must personally suffer through seeing everything he built go to ruin by Solid Snake, all his comrades falling to Solid Snake. It was only not perceived as a problem because we didn't know Big Boss, we didn't have a connection with him other than "He's the final bad guy and is like Darth Vader is to Luke Skywalker". Everyone has feels for BB.

Remakes would introduce new people to the series, but I think if someone is wantin to play the first Metal Gear Solid, they will regardless of how it looks.

Seems pretty pointless considering Metal Gear Solid is a part of the Legacy Collection which comes out pretty soon.

I can understand why some people want remakes, but it's not like the original games are unplayable. The only games that could use a retcon/remake would be Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2, both of which are pretty difficult even for retro gamers.

I really like the gameplay of the old MGS games. I replayed MGS1 a few months ago and the gameplay holds up remarkable well (despite a few quirks).

Metal Gear 1 is easy... Metal Gear 2 is brutal.

The original metal gear 1 and 2 could definitely benefit from a remake.

Kinda scared to ask for a remake at this point in time because MS is being annoying with the timed exclusive crap. if the game is multiplat, that will be awesome!

I still think they should just do it in the MGS4 engine and release it as a PSN title for 15-20 bucks. However being Konami it'll probably be a full 60 dollars just to milk it.

"When is a remake necessary?"

When the franchise and all it's story arcs has officially ended. THEN...you can go back and do remakes.
raiden-49  +   397d ago
tell that to the twin snakes.
Shad0wRunner  +   397d ago
No. Someone needs to tell that to Kojima.

id rather see a remake of the original metal gear games in metal gear solid style with comteporary graphics. I had already had a remake of metal gear solid on gamecube, the twin snakes
Foxgod  +   397d ago
That would be great indeed, the original two, tied together in one story line. in the Fox engine.
garrister  +   397d ago
Remake of the original games would be more logical, as they are links in timeline chain toward first 3D Metal gear solid which already has been altered in manner which Kojima originally wanted - dead bodies don't disappear, shooting in first person view etc. Twin snakes is thus in good accordance with the rest of the series, would there be a new remake with new features, remakes of MGS2:SOL and MGS3:snake eater (probably even MGS4 :) ) would be also necessary to be reconciled with fox engine powered MGS1.
