Rereleases of games have always been a common thing for generations

Not to this extent and even then it was done much better if you’re talking about things like Mario All-Stars or like Final Fantasy series.

Things like Crash Bandicoot absolutely is the way remasters should be where it’s actually remastered but remasters are usually like Tomb Raider, Resident Evil 4-6, God of War 3... etc. these feel unwarranted.

I think remasters should be of games a few generations back that can benefit greatly by current gen tech.

I can’t think of tha single year in the past generations where there weren’t an abundance of rereleases.

Crash Bandicoot: N-Sane Trilogy is a collection of remakes, not remasters. Don’t think the terms are interchangeable.

A game can be rereleased as many times as possible so more people can play it. Not everyone plays every title on the system it originally came out on.
