There are times when a remaster is welcomed or warranted, but it seems like a lot of developers are taking the easy way out. Rather than putting their time and effort into a new IP, they are simply slapping a coat of polish on a previous project in an effort to charge us full price for essentially the same game as a quick way to generate some profits.

Cheap production for them = low risk.
Ridiculous lack of AAA new games = high sales.

Profit. For them. To us, rehashes and remasters.

Illusion of choice ? I havent played a single remaster yet on ps4 or XB1 since their releases .

I must be a weirdo for manageing to get games i like on a regular basis , without relying upon remasters , or for sticking in a multiplayer game longer than its release month .....

Those articles may have the nicest rethoric they want , but it's still ultimately about whining over people getting games they actually want , because they can't fathom wanting those themselves
