Surprised the Ratchet & Clank remake from last year didn’t make this list

Because they left out planets from the original, OST and ruined ratchet’s personality? Ratchet and clank 1is one of the best games ever made imo but not the remake of you want to call it that

GTA 5 a remaster?? More like sat under the heat lamps for a year so people would double dip

GTA 5 was a remaster with a significant visual upgrade over the last gen versions.

what the hell do you think a "remaster" is? Publishers have simply been porting old games, bumping the resolution and calling them "remasters".

Except Grand Theft Auto V has significant improvements that are not actually possible on the original versions like increased population size as well as increased draw distance on top of the first person mode and other features.

It's not simply just a bump in the resolution

how Bioshock collection got submit and not Ratchet and Clank? Bioshock collection was purely made, people had spoken that for long time, because they even recommend to play original over remastered.

and in the list you can add already Shadow of Colossus which look like amazing.

The Xbox one x is a remaster too 😂

Mario Kart 8 did not have "updated visuals"
It's nothing more than a port from 720p to 1080p with no anti-aliasing.

thats all 99% of "remasters" are; I actually find the term insulting to the intelligence of customers.

Every last gen remaster of ps2 games were basically just res bumps. This gen’s remasters of last gen games have been different. They’ve typically bumped resolution in addition to visual enhancements. Now of course some games have gone further than others and there DO exist just resolutions bumps like UMvC3, but most remasters actually have been more than just resolution bumps.

Most last gen games had a pc version and/or scalibilty built into the game engine used.

Darkwatchman358d ago

that doesn't change that current gen remasters of last gen games actually offer a bigger visual boost and more actual effort in terms of graphical fidelity being improved over 7th gen's straight the exact same assets and effects, but just render the image at a higher resolution. Very few actual current gen remasters are just resolution bumps and nothing else. God of War 3 is actually one of the few straight resolution bumps and currently stands as one of the laziest remasters this gen.
