Remastered Games Are Here to Stay, And Here’s Why That’s a Good Thing

From feature editorial:

"We’re seeing an interesting trend emerge with this generation of games, with a lot of older titles from the PS3/360 era seeing re-releases on new consoles. Last year, Square Enix delivered the double-header that was Sleeping Dogs and Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition; Capcom is currently heading in that direction with today’s release of Resident Evil and the forthcoming DmC: Devil May Cry Definitive Edition in March; Deep Silver has the beautiful Metro Redux and today’s release of Saints Row IV: Re-Elected; and 2K Games has announced Borderlands: The Handsome Collection, which will bring Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel to Xbox One and PS4 in a couple of months."

Couldn't agree more, except I hate re-mastered games... =(

I welcome remasters. I just don't want a developer to put off a new ip to make a remaster. As long as they have multiple teams i'm good.

UltimaEnder1428d ago

What is your example of a great remaster and a horrible one?

JoGam1428d ago

Im not sure I understand ur question.

^ I will answer that for you. A great remaster would be what's in the thumbnail, Halo: MCC. Ignoring the matchmaking issues, which were fixed within a month, it's just the most amazing remaster package I've ever seen.

I mean most games don't even remaster the multiplayer, just the story mode in HD. These guys went beyond that by giving us 4 games, all upgraded to HD, Halo 2 totally re-done with changeable engines, halo 2 cinematics totally redone, halo 2 multiplayer redone along with multiplayers from all other halos (5 multiplayers including remaster) in matchmaking, soundtrack redone. Holy shit I could keep going.

I'd prefer backwards compatibility

Im getting pretty sick of remakes, Im ready for new IP's already.

I don't agree that it's a good things, I want new games, not remastered that in the UK cost the same, if not more as when I bought them the first time with things like residentevil being the acception, but if they came out last gen ps3/360 I don't want them.

They should remaster top games like halo, gears, gow, last of us, etc. Other are just cash grabs
An example would be Saints Row 4 Re-elected Edition

It's funny you should mention cash grabs, considering one of the games you listed was one. I don't agree with remastering games that are only a few years old.
