Top 10 Video Game Remakes

Ask Men: There’s been a wave of nostalgia in gaming circles as of late, as evidenced by the numerous releases of compilation discs with classic games, right through to authentic, unchanged ports on more modern systems (the PlayStation Network or the Wii Virtual Console are good examples). Part of this new video game fad includes taking older titles, dusting off their memorable gameplay or plot lines, and remaking them for a new generation of gamers to appreciate.

We’ve put together a list of 10 video game remakes that have been rereleased onto newer systems, but here we have to make a distinction -- these aren’t sequels that many mistake for a rerelease or just slapped into a classics collection without any updates. These top 10 video game remakes are pure remakes that don’t deviate from the authentic nature of the original titles, but instead are given a new haircut for today’s modern systems.

The story is too old to be commented.

I'd put the Resident Evil remake on the GC on that list. The rest are pretty good choices.

Not sure if I'd class Mario Kart Wii as a remake.

Personal preference - but I preferred the original Ninja Gaiden Black and 2 to the sigma series.

Yes RE: remake (GC) is one of the most awesome remakes EVER.. it's a sin not to include it..

Venox20081856d ago

list needs:

Conker: live & reloaded
Resident evil (gamecube)
Metal gear solid: twin snakes

I'd have to disagree with you on Twin Snakes. Sure, the graphics were improved, but the voice acting wasn't as good and the cut-scenes were too over the top. I wanted to like it better than the original, but it didn't seem to take itself as seriously.

Venox20081856d ago

I liked cut-scenes a lot :) to each his own..

They forgot the Uncharted series, the remake of the Tomb Raider series.

BrightFalls761856d ago

All in good fun, I did love Uncharted 2 and am looking forward to part 3 but overall looking much more forward to the reboot of Tomb Raider.

Tanir1856d ago

DlocDaBudSmoka1856d ago

Remakes eh? If anyone played Ys III and compare it to Oath in Felghana (which I think the fans overall consider the best in the series) it's quite amazing how much of a remake it is.
It's also more enjoyable to play Ys III before playing Oath in Felghana.
For remakes (like completely from ground up, make a new game) that's all I can think of atm
