Remaster Or Reboot?

Simple opinion piece relating to classic games put under the Remaster or Reboot spotlight (Next-Gen, PC, PS3, PS4, Retro, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

The one game that needs both would be resident evil remaster the early games and reboot the series.

Remasters are anti-consumer scams.
Reboots are new games.

Seems pretty obvious which is the best option, in every conceivable scenario.

I fail to see how a remaster is anticonsumer because they can't force you to buy it. An example of something that I would consider anticonsumer was Microsofts previous DRM policies because they limited what a consumer could do with his physical copies plus there was no way of rejecting it except by not buying the system. I could think of more anticonsumer policies like the DRM that Sim City had, the unfair distribution of content that we saw with Skyrim and the broken promises of many developers.

If the game is a *true classic and no element of gameplay/story etc should be changed, then it's a Remaster. Note, Remasters should not be full retail price.. ever!!

If the game had some great ideas, concepts and was ok-ish, but maybe didn't quite hit the AAA, classic etc or maybe it was a game that was just a bit to big, ambitious or the tech wasn't powerful enough to fully realize the potential of the games concept etc... then it's a reboot.
