The top ten of the best remaster games coming out in 2015 that you should consider buying.
The fact that there's ten is a bit sad. There's only a few on here that really needed to be remastered...
I think some games deserve more sales than they originally had, and thats where remasters help. There are certain games I have never played but would buy as a remaster.
I'm glad that games like GRIM FANDANGO are being remastered. I can't find the original on Steam or GOG.
This is a terrible trend. That is 10 studios that could push out new IP. We need a couple of rules. You can't remaster unless the game is from 2 generations ago or more. You can't charge more then $29.99 unless it's a collection of remasters. I understand some people didn't get to play TLOU or GTA last gen, but the programmers for those 2 games could have been working on GTA6 or TLOU2.
From what I understand it's not a very labor intensive process. Take TLOU for example, while one part of the team was working on the Left Behind dlc, the other part was working on the remaster, which by all accounts gave Naughty Dog important bits of experience that they'd carry over to UC4. To me, that's the perfect case scenario, those who never got a chance to play TLOU get to play the best possible version at little dev cost, while ND's first true next gen title got to benefit by the practice & can be an even better title than what would have been released otherwise. I'd assume the same was true in Rockstar's case. It's really all down to the talent & experience of the devs, the best of them will use a remaster at the beginning of a new gen to learn the ins & outs w/ little overhead cost & risk, the worst of them will learn as well, but might take a bit longer to truly get there. Is it something I want to see throughout this generation? Definitely not...is it a useful spring board into what this generation can actually attain? Definitely so. I do agree w/ your pricing plan for sure though, there's really no reason to charge full price for these games, regardless of how good or bad they sold in their initial release, theres simply not enough funds & resources put into them to justify a 59.99 price point.
Resident Evil didn't make the list, but FF7 a game that released on pc 18 years ago and wasn't changed at all made it? REALLY????
only top ten?! let's make it top 50!! I can't wait until we see nothing new in gaming!! Yeah #consoleregen4lifebro
Yep, cuz we all know there haven't been any new IPs or even new entries in old franchises released this gen.
type 0 hd is only one on that list worth buying it was never released states side. i never played saints row 4 but ill wait for price drop on that ot be honest if majoras mask was on wii you it be worth buti m notp laying epic zelda titles on 8 inch or less screen come on nintendo
major disagree, that game should have been on psp or vita , they trolled us well .
That moment when you realize over half of the remasters are from Square Enix. SMH...
Every time I read these articles I keep hoping i will see skyrim. Instead we get saints row and Dmc I mean really does anyone actually want these games?
I would be one to consider these games. There are gamers out there (like me) who would not mind re-buying them. It means that I can sell off my PS3 sooner than later. And some of these like Saint Row 4, I have not had a chance to buy yet; its a win for me as it has extra stuff. And I also get to revisit Grim Fandango on my Vita. Yayy. Unlike others here, I want more remasters. For example, I heard that Beyond Two Souls might be coming to PS4, so I held off buying it for PS3.
Didn't play beyond two souls but that's a game I would definitely consider. I'm all up for remakes but there's plenty I would swerve like 9 out the 10 in this list. Up for dark souls again though.
the list is missing REmake REmastered
I don't think that some of these are remasters. Dark Souls 2 is a re-release with no real enhancements, same with DmC. Final Fantasy VII shouldn't be considered a remaster since it's a port of the PC version. Is the FFX/X-2 HD Remaster for PS4 going to receive any enhancements?
Dark Souls 2 will support more online players, will have better fps and upgraded graphics, new enemies and random mob locations on every ng+... or so I've heard. Don't know if it's really true, though, but I'm hoping it is.
Im so looking forward to majoras mask as i never played the n64 version. And why is everyone moaning? If you dont like remasters then dont buy them! Simple
Say no to FF type 0, best troll announcement ever . Screw SE , watch it gets less than 1k sales......they deserves it .
What are you talking about? Anyway whit 100 k pre-order (only US ),it wont happen.
We have to figure out a better way to get these developers how to do remasters proper.
Personally I think its just saddening that there are 10 or more. I don't care what system they are on, enough is enough.
