A reimagining of 5 disappointing video games and the masterpieces they could have been underneath other studios.
How often do disappointing games get remakes
well... if disappointing movies can get remakes then why not games? some of these have really good premise but somewhat disappointing execution. In the right hands they could be great. I quite enjoyed lair (after the patch), too human and the order 1886. I'd even add in quantum break and recore as disappointing but with a good premise.
"well... if disappointing movies can get remakes then why not games?" But how many disappointing movies actually get those? I'm still waiting for a remake of Howard the Duck.
^nothing disappointing about howard the duck. It is cheesy 80's goodness.
When you're right, you're right.
@Gangsta Wasn't there a rumor that they were looking at making another Howard the Duck? He had a cameo in GoTG2. Love that movie for how bad it was. That and Garbage Pail Kids.
The Order was a fresh experience. Not the most compelling game, but I didn't want to put it down, and platted it. Good for what it was. Quantum was something different as well, but a little less fun to actually play, imo. The 'acting' was done in a cheese factory too. Completed one path and never returned to it.
FFXIV was already remade, and it's probably the beat thing Square has put out in years.
yes, I was giving an example of disappointing games remade to be a great game
notachance My apologies
Every time sites need clicks. Just look at the obligatory: i wAnT cLIcKs tEh OrDer 1886 pIcTUrE.
It's really not super often, but it does happen! Mostly we see cult favorites come back around but in the recent case of Shaq-Fu we really saw a truly awful game see new life (not great life but at least new). It's something I'd love to see a lot more of. Thanks for reading my article!
Too Human yeah I remember that game smh😂
The Order has its faults yes but it had a fantastic atmosphere and some great gameplay. A game with enormous potential and far from disappointing. I say give Ready at Dawn another crack at it because I think they created an diamond with some rough edges that just needs some tlc.
Problem was the repetitive boss fights. I liked the gunplay, cover system and somewhat the story.
It did have fantastic atmosphere, I'll give you that. But gameplay pretty much played out like short gunfire segments interlaced with walking/sneaking + QTE events. Gameplay was the weakest point of The Order because RAD prioritized world building and graphical detail. Ut was disappointing because it didnt live up to the massive potential it haf. If they were given another shot at a sequel, I hope they can learn from their mistakes.
gameplay was meh but the world had potential, in my ideal world it'd have Mass Effect kind of gameplay
I waited till The Order was discounted and went in with certain expectations and wasn’t disappointed. Just like Quantum Break. Great concept just needed a little extra meat on the bones.
I had high hopes before it released. They were curbed some by the early previews, and while I found faults with the game, and it was obviously released unfinished, I still enjoyed it. The lore, acting, graphics, and world itself were excellent.
I agree that it had some awesome atmosphere and the gameplay wasn't awful, but that potential is exactly why I put it on this list. I actually loved playing the game (same as some of the other games I put on this list such as Army of Two) But I would just love to see what could happen if it fulfilled some of that potential, ya know? Could have had the next incredible Sony franchise to rival God of War. Thanks for reading my article!
The order should have had a sequel. The first one wasn't bad just needed a few tweaks.
I would love a sequel to The Order. It is still a great game. Lair had a great concept and could be amazing with the current technology available. A Lair-like ps5 game could be incredible.
The Order itself wasn't disappointing to me. I had a lot of fun playing it. The disappointing part was how short the game was...It needed at least 5 more hours.
Yeah i agree it was a good game just too short
The Order 1886 2 by Santa Monica, no Ready at Down
why waste money on remaking disappointing game when they can remake good old school game for a new Gen
The Order wasn't disappointing. it just wasn't exceptional.
The order 1886, im sure Sony said that would be a franchise. I also remember the developer saying he would take all the feedback and develop future title to be better
I'd love to see them take the criticism and push themselves for another.
the order was not disappointing its an awesome game that was TOO SHORT
For me the biggest disappointment with The Order other than it being over a bit too quickly, having a rushed ending and not having any replay value is that I actually wanted more and never got it. The cliffhanger it ends on feels more like I just reached the middle or end of the first act of a game, not the ending proper. A sequel that picked up where it left off was sorely needed and we did not get that. For what it is, I actually really enjoyed The Order. It probably helps that I got it for $8 on a PSN Flash Sale rather than spending $80CAD on it on release, but I got value for the money I spent.
i really enjoyed the order. I think the game was bashed for no good reason. short game, so are tell tail games. do i have to mention Detroit's running time? how about quick time events. if the industry is going to pan a game and then celebrate other games and they are basically the same i think they are all HYPOCRITES .
Ffxv need a remake, just do what versus suppose to do.
