BacklogCritic: "This is a question not isolated to video games. The same question could be applied to films and other media. In terms of films, I think most people would say that remaking films is a bad idea. Just have a look at the Gus Van Sant’s botched remake of Hitchcock’s classic Psycho and you’ll see why. Of course, there are positive examples too, like Brian De Palma’s 1983 Scarface, but these seem very much like the exception rather than the rule."
