Made a thread on this a few years ago
Wanna revisit it.
So give me some you've played recently, and some old games you really wanna see get some love.
In case anyone is iffy on the definitions.
Taking an existing game, and making it functional on newer consoles, while also polishing up the visuals.
Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition, Kingdom Hearts 1.5 + 2.5, Shadow of the Colossus (PS3), Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection, Batman Return to Arkham, Ghost of Tsushima: Director’s Cut, FF7 Remake Intergrade.
This is where someone takes the game and improves the graphics as well as gameplay. Everything is the same, level design, cutscenes, controls, gameplay etc etc. It’s just that the graphics look better and the gameplay is smoother.
Shadow of the Colossus (PS4), Modern Warfare 1 and 2 Remastered, Gears of War Ultimate Edition, Halo Combat Evolved Anniversary.
This is where a game is completely remade from the ground up. While it does somewhat attempt to tell the same story again, it generally has an entirely new graphics engine, completely redone and even brand new cutscenes, and sometimes it may even have a new style of gameplay.
Final Fantasy 7 Remake, Resident Evil 2 (2019), Resident Evil 3 (2020), Tony Hawks ProSkater 1+2.
Something completely new and entirely from the ground up. Sometimes the only thing these will have in common with the original are similar characters and setting.
Modern Warfare (2019) Shinobi (PS2), Doom (2016), Wolfenstein (2014), EA’s Battlefront (not sure on this one)
