"hile there are more great games to look forward to than ever before on current consoles, there are times when nothing goes down smoother than a pint of nostalgia. Many publishers are beginning to see this and, in the ever-dogged pursuit of our gaming dollar, are digging back in their catalogs to find classics worthy of a second release. These helpings run the gamut from updated legends like Ocarina of Time 3D to remastered HD collections of much-beloved franchises like Metal Gear Solid. For gamers, such a release is often a wonderful thing. Fans of the original get to experience their favorite moments in new ways, while newcomers have a reason to see what all the fuss was about. At the same time, publishers can gauge sales and use the re-release as both a stepping stone for a franchise reboot and a way of generating hype for the next installment."
