Game Informer: Like the HD remakes of the last generation, it’s clear that remastered versions of popular games are going to be a part of this new generation. Gamers are eager to revisit more polished and refined experiences that they already know they love. Single-game releases – like Tomb Raider and The Last of Us – have gotten most of the attention so far. However, publishers also have an opportunity to capitalize on their popular franchises (like Microsoft is doing with the Master Chief Collection) by releasing remastered anthologies for the new consoles.
Of course, on the development side of things, this is easier said than done. Just getting a game to run on a new platform is difficult and time-intensive – and that’s without any new enhancements. Adding in improved visuals, a silky smooth framerate, and other tweaks would be even more work. Those concerns aside, these are the new-gen collections of last-gen games that we would be playing in an ideal world.
