Historically accurate from the past is tough to truly know and judge especially the farther you go back because history is written from the people in power and doesn’t mean it’s the truth just the narrative they wanted to tell.

I don’t care about historically accurate in most games because they are games not biographies or history books . Just make the game fun , good gameplay and such .

Ghost of Tsushima wasn’t historically accurate in many things but I loved the game . Many examples like it .

Objection sustained. N4G please disregard this article.

This game was so far ahead of it's time. I'd like to see a sequel and what they do with modern consoles.

Great game and still holds up better than some games today

This is one of my favorite Rockstar games next to RDR and Bully I so wish LA Noire gets a sequel.


The Only Remake We Need Is L.A. Noire

From TheGamer: "Doesn’t it seem like they only remake the games that don’t need remakes? You can play the new Dead Space or The Last of Us, or you can just play the originals, because they’re still great games. We don’t need remakes of games that hold up, we need remakes of games that didn’t live up to their potential, even when the original came out. I’d much rather play a remake of Mirror’s Edge Catalyst or The Quiet Man than Resident Evil 4. Resident Evil 4 doesn’t need a second chance, but a lot of other games do."

Enough of 7th gen game remake wish listing. These games are still serviceable and 'modern'.
And even most 7th gen games are available on 9th gen systems via BC.
Remake older games please. From PS1 and PS2 era and even older if possible.
Like Legend of the Dragoon, Blood Omen, Legacy of Kain, Red Alert 2, Silent Hill 2, Chrono Cross, Planescape Torment, Icewind Dale, MGS, Unreal, UT, Deus Ex, RTCW, Saints Row ... to name a few to begin with.
(some games mentioned above might have had some re-releases/remastering done but I am ignoring that including those for full-on Remakes. Kind of similar to FF7 & RE 4 ports and Remakes)

RaidenBlack459d ago (Edited 459d ago )

Already released Perfect Remake choices are : Resident Evil 2&3, FF7R, Mafia, Yakuza Kiwami, Link’s Awakening, Shadow Of The Colossus, Pro Skater 1 + 2, Black Mesa, Ratchet & Clank, Spyro Reignited.
And the upcoming ones are : System Shock, Max Payne duo, KOTOR, Splinter Cell etc ...

Yes to every game you just listed. Konami should follow in Capcom's footsteps and do a high quality remake of SH 1 through 3.

porkChop459d ago

A game shouldn't be remade unless a remake can really build on and improve the original in ways that weren't originally possible. In terms of how mechanics are implemented, and even what mechanics are possible, there's been huge improvements since PS1/PS2. Those gens are ripe for remakes.

It's too early to remake anything from PS3 and forward. At this point all we'd get are tighter controls and prettier visuals, nothing that really transforms the experience.

Gardenia458d ago

Totally agree. A remake of Soul Reaver, Driver, Timesplitters, Syphon Filter 2, Vagrant Story to name a few. So many quality games back then.

JeffGUNZ458d ago

TO be fair, LA Noire on PC is still locked to 30FPS and performance still isn't great, it was a poor port. A nice remake or even sequel (wishful thinking) would be welcome.

I absolutely loved L.A. Noire! Only played it once though, and never was interested on going back.

I could careless if they did a complete remake to the game. But I would recommend it to anybody who’s not played it, fantastic experience (while not a masterpiece as some were expecting) still so thrilling and interesting and fun to play.

VivaChe459d ago

I love LA Noire. But if you've already played it, there isn't a whole lot of upside to re-playing it, since it's a mystery so a huge part of the game would be nullified in a second play through. I would love a sequel, though.

Orchard459d ago

How about a sequel instead of a remake? The original still holds up well enough in the gen 8 remaster.
