Five Games That Deserve HD Remasters (More than The Last of Us)


Kevin from Denkiphile: "The bigwigs at Sony sat down last year after the successful release of The Last of Us on the PS3 and thought, “You know what people haven’t had enough of yet? The Last of Us! Let’s release it again on the PS4 because people will definitely pay 60 dollars to play a previous-generation game again on a next-gen console they bought to play next-gen games on, right?” Do I sound bitter? If I do, it’s because I am. Here is a list of games that actually deserve remasters after years (actual years, like more than 12 months and some change) of relative obscurity."

Yes because you are going to see most of those on a Sony console. Stupid article

- Metro Series getting remastered
- Mass Effect Trilogy getting remastered (Rumor)
- GTA V getting remastered
- Tomb Raider already Remastered
- Rayman Legends already Remastered
- Halo getting remastered
- Wind Waker already Remastered

LOl why only The Last of us gets the hate for this movement? I think it is the Exclusive curse this game has the reason why it's been getting so much hate since launch.

Haters going to be hating, Naruto.

Thank you for having a brain.

I'm not quite sure, honestly, since all of those remastered games are holding new games back. Remastering games that are barely considered old, that's just companies taking advantage of console gamers.

Maybe it's something related to a fanatic fanbase.

Rayman Legends is a port, not a remaster

MasterCornholio1724d ago

Tomb Raider received some hate because of the price but its nothing compared to the hate that The Last of Us got. Seriously if you dont like it don't buy it and let those who do like it buy it and enjoy the game in peace.

The last thing that I said is applicable to any remaster.

LightofDarkness1724d ago

Tomb Raider received plenty of hate. You have a short memory if you don't think it did. It released about 1 year after release and didn't really need or deserve a re-release as it didn't do enough to justify its price tag.

GTA V was expected to have a PC and next gen version release well before it's actual release, so it came as no big surprise to people. Plus, the game would benefit greatly from greater technical capabilities, as it clearly suffered in many ways due to the limitations of last gen hardware (mostly in the simulation departments).

Metro looked so far and away beyond the consoles on PC that it was enviable. Now they have a relative parity. Console players deserve to see these games in their full glory. Plus, it's two games rolled into one. Big difference.

Every Halo game is at least 2 years old by the time MCC comes out. Same with Mass Effect. Halo 2 is being completely rebuilt graphically for the Xbox One, which is more in line with HD remake than remaster. The game is from 2004 after all. This is also 4 games with beta access to the biggest franchise on Xbox's first true next gen outing. Over 1000 hours of content. Deserved.

Wind Waker is a game from 2002 that was criminally overlooked because of the relatively small GC user base and negative attention about its art style, which actually gained favourable responses as time went on. Also deserved.

The Last Of Us is the same situation as Tomb Raider. 60 FPS is nice, higher res is nice, slightly improved detail is also good. But that's all it has over last year's release. It's fine if you've never played it, but effectively pointless if you have. The fact that they're charging full price for it amounts to gouging, frankly, as they're betting on people buying it simply because they have so little else to play. It's cynical.

"The fact that they're charging full price for it amounts to gouging," The fact is that Sony is charging $50.00 ($40.00 for the digital download on Psn) for a game that includes all released DLC. Full price for an AAA game is $60.00 and full price for the DLC would be $15.00 - $20.00.

skoorydook1724d ago

That last paragraph sounds very fanboyish mate, the game isn't full price, it has the dlc added also, then take into account you have basically stood up for all other remasters/remakes besides the Sony exclusive in the rest of post just adds to coming across as a fanboy.

People either have an issue with all remasters/remakes or none there shouldn't be an area to punish some then let others off.

Silly gameAr1724d ago

Yeah, it's pretty pathetic TLOU gets singled out when there's dozens of remasters out and coming soon.

deafdani1724d ago (Edited 1724d ago )

Nah, it's not only Last of Us that gets the hate. Just wait until GTAV remaster gets closer to release, and you will see similar comments for that, too.

Wind Waker HD got its fair share of critics as well, despite it being a much, much older game than TLOU.

Personally, I have zero problem with remasters. Because nobody is forcing me to buy them (but I will if they excite me), and new games keep getting made, and a lot of people haven't experienced those games, so I don't see any harm in them.

Everyone lets bash TLOU for remastering. /s

Wizard_King1724d ago

More like gimping to fit on the PS3 and not fully utilizing the PS4.

It's the best game ever yet it's still full of brain dead AI.

SoapShoes1724d ago

Brain dead AI and it still is better than the games you like? That must mean there are lots of flaws in those games you don't care about.

vikingland11724d ago (Edited 1724d ago )

More than? Thats just an opinion albeit a dumb one j/k.

Edit: That's a crappy list in my opinion.

Jury1724d ago

Many people wanted it. Sony makes money. It's win-win! Many gamers got exactly what they wanted. How is this a bad thing?

Don't want it? Fine! Shut up! Don't buy it! Go away!

I don't understand the mentality of the haters :/
