Then and Now: The Best and Worst Game Remakes

Remakes and HD re-releases are all the rage these days, with Metal Gear Solid, ICO, Shadow of the Colossus, and Halo all receiving HD makeovers later this year. Of course, before the current onslaught of HD re-releases, many games were subject to full-fledged remakes, a trend that continues to this day with last year's remake of GoldenEye for the Wii, and the recent release of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D. We speculate that remakes will become even more prevalent as the years go by, so we at gamrFeed have gathered together the most prevalent remakes of the last few years, examining why the did and didn't work, so that future developers can possibly know how to approach remakes in the future.

Disagree with the first Resident Evil being "easily the most influential game in the survival horror genre."

Alone in the Dark says hi from 1992.

I also hope the Black Mesa project to remake the original Half-Life isn't vaporware by now, as the Twitter that they reference for "recent updates" hasn't been updated since January of 2010.

Wow, no better examples of bad remakes?! Shattered memories wasn't bad, neither was twin snakes, twin snakes was awesome, 007... he must not have played it cuz that campaign was awesome. There is pleasnty worse remakes then that. How about Turtles in time Reshelled? Samba De amigo on wii? If he went futher then the last 7 years he might have found something better. This list is horrible.
