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!!
