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)

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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