GeekManDem - My Problem with HD Remakes

"There has been a sudden revitalization of a lot of series taking place in the game industry the past few years. For the most part it is great to see long desired sequels like Diablo 3 finally coming to fruition but along with the idea to follow up on games that fans love is the idea to cash in on the exact same thing once again by slapping HD on the end of the title. These are called “HD remakes”." (PS3, Xbox 360)

With the turn DmC is taking, I am glad they gave me the HD Devil May Cry's, that way I can still enjoy DMC.

Idk i'm excited as the next guy for the DMC hd collection but somehow i doubt it will actually be an hd remake just look at RE4&Veronica x they were lazy remakes.

OMG! What a biased bull**** article. He bashes sony for only remaking successfull franchises, but then praised microsoft for the great job of remaking halo. I believe that a lot more people have already played halo ce then ico or shadow of the colossus. I believe sony did a wonderfull job remaking those classics in full hd and that was an important move to get more people aware of team ico's games, before the last guardian come out.

Dumb biased article is dumb.

Well Halo CE is one of the only remakes that actually updates the graphics to current standards. I'm not saying the others are bad, but most seem like a quick cash-in with minimal effort.

@but most seem like a quick cash-in with minimal effort.
It's an HD re-mastering not a re-make. At least you can't blame them for false advertising. On top of that, it gets new buyers who haven't experienced said games yet without purchasing the previous gen console.

"So, what's the point of repurchasing?"

Well, unlike the retard author, people don't like to play their favorite games from the PS2 era on a (typically) large HDTV that ends up stretching the image of a 480p game. We like being able to play our games and not go, "what the hell was that supposed to be?" because a lack of clarity.

And the point of HD remakes isn't to remake a game like DMC is doing now, it's to REMAKE IT IN HD. Hence the reason it's called a "HD REMAKE" rather than a "remake".

It's sad when with today's pathetic journalism that I can say that this is one of the worst "articles" I've read in recent memory.
