Remakes, remakes everywhere, as far as the eye I can see. Every week it seems a new classic or not-so-classic is being shipped with fresh lick of paint, angled to tickle our nostalgia glands in lieu of any new games to be excited about*.
If nostalgia were a physical product, say a drink, it would be a best seller the world over no matter how it tastes (we're thinking... Play Doh and Frazzles). Instead nostalgia is peddled to us in the form of games we loved, and a form that doesn't betray our fond memories.
The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D, Resident Evil HD, The Last of Us: Remastered, Grand Theft Auto 5, Borderlands 2 - more games than ever are being sold back to an audience that simply cannot say no.
