They may be harming our industry more than helping it.
please stop writing this article every single day!
People like the person who wrote this article seem to forget that you are not forced to buy remastered games. And no, remastered games are not hurting the industry.
Exactly. How about "Please stop telling me what I want".
That, or... Please stop letting whiney gamers complaints against B/C extra cost stop you from including it in your consoles, or you will have Remasters for generation after generation.

I agree that newer games probably shouldn't get as many remasters as they do, but porting a game from one system to another is perfectly fine with me. The Last Of Us is a perfect example, I had a PS3 and never played the original. It came out on PS4 and I bought it and enjoyed it very much. I paid full price for an older game with updated visuals on a newer more powerful system. I don't see a problem with porting a game from one system to another. The vita is an excellent platform because of ports, specially Japanese ports of games we never got on the psp.
I see things like TLOU as more of a port. Sure it got updated in the graphics, and it got the GOTY release treatment, but cross-gen ports are not uncommon at all. Remasters I see more like Halo:MCC or the Sly collection. Several old games fully updated to take advantage of current hardware.
Lets remaster games that count. Older games from more than a gen ago, like from the era of the PS1/2, Xbox, Gamecube games. If we are going to get Final Fantasy games then lets get multiple games in one package with all DLC (if any), extra content and anything else that would be worth a re-visit. I want to see more collections if these publishers are going to start milking this latest fad. Mass Effect Trilogy, Gears of War Trilogy (with Judgement...why not), ALL the God of War games not just part 3. And how about some remakes instead of re-masters. Would love to see old games remade and re-imagined like Blood Omen, Actraiser, Bloody Roar, Lufia and many more for the new gen.
It all boils down to if there was no demand for remasters they would not make them. People need to get it into their heads that people want these remasters and they are supplying the demand.
I disagree, Remasters don't hurt anything it's more games!!
I love remasters of old games and I am glad they're happening and in fact I wish more games would get a remaster like FF7 crisis core, shadow of the colossus PS4, Dark souls 1, demons souls and the list goes on and on. These are all amazing titles that I would buy again instantly and I am sure many of you have missed out on these titles last gen as well.
I agree. I'm tired of remasters.. I think its time to focus solely on this gen
Don't want them? Don't buy them. Not complicated. It's not harming the industry, clearly there is a want for the games or they wouldn't sell as well as they do. Bitching about something so inconsequential is ridiculous.
I really don't care about them some games i never got to play last gen so it does help and some games i just want to play again, if you don't want them don't buy them you complaining isn't going to stop them from happening and people need to realise that when they do this they have a small team working on it so the rest can finish what ever they are working on.
dont stop until you remake ff7 as fucking promised
Give me the bioshock trilogy remastered and I'll be happy
I wholeheartedly agree with this article. Honestly unless the game gets a treatment on par with The Master Chief Collection, we should not be giving up our money for more of these cheap quick cash ins. It's honestly a waste of resources given that these developers could be spending their time on new titles.
These developers are almost always smaller studios without the resources or experience to do a full title, themselves, so there's no time lost. These games are also as much for introducing new gamers to old franchises with new entries imminent as they are cash grabs. And they're virtually NEVER for people who already have or have played them. They're also not mandatory to buy, so I don't see the problem.
Dragons Dogma Remaster! Yay or Nay?!?
Who cares? it's just a product you can buy. This is like making an article asking to please stop making 1 ply toilet paper.
One-ply is the WORST! Down with one-ply!
Yeah, but people won't buy that if they don't want it. That should be the way we decide what to make and what not to.
1) It is arrogant to think that people who are just getting in to gaming for the first time shouldn't get to experience great older games. Not everyone owned a PS3 to play TLoU or God of War. And not everyone has played all the Halo games etc. 2) As long as creating remasters doesn't reduce the number of new IP or other AAA titles that could be released, then I don't see the problem 3) We need something to fill the gaps in the lack of big releases as new games get more expensive and take longer to produce. Remasters are cheaper and quicker to make. 4) No one is forcing you to buy the remasters
Please remaster every game and I will never click your website.
I find many remasters to be a great thing. Playing Final Fantasy X and MGS 3 again with clearer graphics and on a system I still have brings me great joy.
Garbage article is garbage. Nothing wrong with remasters, it's great to play games with enhanced graphics. What a totally lame "opinion piece", thumbs down for that poor website.
Any last gen game that goes from 720p/30fps to 1080p/60fps is well worth it. The Last of Us, Tomb Raider PS4 and soon to be released Dark Souls 2 come to mind. Also, GTA 5 was an amazing remaster. I don't mind it, if you don't like it don't buy. It's that simple. I would love to see Bioshock, Bioshock 2 & Infinite all remastered at 1080p/60fps. I would buy a Demon's Souls 1080p/60fps remaster. Fallout 4 & New Vegas at 1080p/60fps. Gears of War Series Remastered at 1080p/60fps. Alan Wake Remaster 1080p/60fps, Max Payne 3 1080p/60fps, Uncharted Collection 1080p/60fps. In other words, I'm a supporter.
U Mad Bro?
please dont stop remastering games. I would love kingdom hearts 1 and 2 on ps4 and xbone, ff7, gears of war collection, ratchet and clank and so on....a crash bandicoot HD collection...please dont speak for everyone you monster
I wish game companies stopped making remasters to go back at doing remakes.
No, so STFU.
I agree 100000000% STOP MAKING REMASTERS!!!!!!!!!!! We're not forced to buy them but when your options are far and few between this Gen, and when its comes to New and Fresh experiences there sparse...... So its Insulting of these Big Corps to reproduce old experiences when Next Gen [keyword: next]means on to the Next NEW!!, not old. Spineless consumers who defend for the Rich crinminals are sick in the head, you people are weak and cowards, spineless Junkies who lack self control....... Here's your Problem: . Stockholm syndrome can be seen as a form of traumatic bonding, which does not necessarily require a hostage scenario, but which describes "strong emotional ties that develop between two persons where one person intermittently harasses, beats, threatens, abuses, or intimidates the other." One commonly used hypothesis to explain the effect of Stockholm syndrome is based on Freudian theory. It suggests that the bonding is the individual's response to trauma in becoming a victim. Identifying with the aggressor is one way that the ego defends itself. When a victim believes the same values as the aggressor, they cease to be perceived as a threat. boom.
