Are you going to buy The Last of Us HD?

Sharingan_no_Kakashi1627d ago

I am. It depends on the game and the content it provides.

TLOU remastered is the game with all dlc and highly upgraded visuals for less than the original cost of the game alone. That's worth it.

Tomb Raider wasn't worth it. Heck Injustice wasn't either but I managed to catch it on psn for 25 dollars one day and couldnt pass on it. I usually don't buy dlc so to get it for that cost with better visuals and all dlc was a good deal.

Got the TLOU on pre oorder for $40 at Best buy so that as the right price and the only price I'll pay for a last gen remake (regardless of how great is it, since I already played it already) unless the package has multiple games ala The Orange Box or Halo MCC, then I'll gladly pay full price for it.

If Naughty Dog decides to do a Uncharted remake with all three games, count me in as well for the full $60. I value what I get for my money if publishers want to charge me my hard earned $60 for their games.

Im not. The entertainment value of cinematic story based games like TLOU and UC2 diminishes heavily on the second playthrough since you already know what will happen.

Its not like RPGs where branching paths lead to multiple endings/outcomes.

I played TLOU once and I loved it. I feel playing it again would cheapen my memory of what an incredible experience it was. Id rather put that money towards UC4.

saviin1626d ago (Edited 1626d ago )

I wouldn't if I played the original but since I didn't have a ps3 I will definitely pick this up when I get a ps4. Just like Bayonetta and wind waker, never played the originals because I went from ps2/xbox to PC, and now my PC is dead and all I have is my kids wii u.

So for people who can't buy every platform every generation, backwards compatibility, remakes and offerings from past generations are very much appreciated. I think some of pricing is a little inflated, but with remakes at least they can add features to make it justified, the other two should be heavily discounted.

Square enix remakes their remakes of their remakes.

Ppl still buy them.

Whats up w that?

lilbroRx1627d ago

Square Enix's remakes are so far from the original games that its pretty much a new game. Something that I don't like as they are often not as good, or lose what made the orignal great to begin with.

This is why I dread the idea of FF7 being remade and wish people would just drop it to save the games integerity.

kreate1627d ago

I guess we gotta define re-makes and
re-releases first so we're all on the same page.

Bigpappy1627d ago

It is not a simple yes or no for me.

It would have to be a game I have never played or has a lot of content I have yet to explore.

I will not rebuy a game at full price just for spit and polish

smt_Nocturne1627d ago

i disagree. as a SMT fan i'll would love to see a remake of any SMT game for PS4 but i guess Atlus has other plans anyway remakes won't hurt anyone.
if you don't like them don't buy them Simple as that.

Anything older than 10 years is okay. At least as far as I'm concerned

cemelc1627d ago


All those games that dont even have 5 years are not worth the asking price, but im pretty sure they dont make as much as when they first release.

Snookies121627d ago

If it's a game/series I really loved, sure.

uth111627d ago

if you never played and want to play then sure!

if you have, then you just have to decide if the game is worth it to you.

F4sterTh4nFTL1627d ago

I would not mind a Red Dead Redemption Remastered for PC, PS4 & Xbox One.

lilbroRx1627d ago

I wouldn't mind being able to play pure PC games again that were made specifically for the PC and its capabilities without them being held back by consoles like the PS4 and Xbone.
