Game Remakes

one thing that irks me lately are people who cry out for a game to be remade in today's standards. Hideo Kojima stated it the best of the way i see it:

"I was just making the game I wanted to make. Looking back, there’s not anything in particular I want to go back and fix. If you change anything, you change the game – and I want to avoid that. If you bring the gameplay up to modern standards, then you lose a bit of the original game. It was a game made for a certain era – not just the story, but the controls and everything about it reflect that era in which the game was made"

Re: Game Remakes

I'm kind of on the fence

I don't really have a problem with the HD remasters that have come out. In fact I own 1, the ICO/Shadow of the Colossus collection. Truthfully I only bought it because I wanted to play ICO which is long out of print on the PS2 and expensive to buy used now(or it was before the collection came out)

I will admit I kind of want FF7 remade for current systems, but it's just a nostalgia thing and because it looks like crap now in comparison. Other than that, I don't really care.

Re: Game Remakes

It depends on the game and how faithful the remake is.

Exactly, for example, the Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes for gamecube is one of the best remakes ever made, improves the graphics and the "cinematography" of the original while being faithful to the original.

Other good exampme is Bionic Commando Rearmed, its an amazing game, faithful, but they took a few liberties on level design that actually improved the original.

If they are gonna change something they have to be very smart to damage the original concept. Some fail and others have great success.
