Games You'd Like to See Remade/Remastered

With the Okami HD rerelease out and the Shadows of the Colossus remake soon to follow, I'm feeling a bit spoiled for games I loved before coming back out on better systems.

Are there any old games you'd like to see remade or remastered for the current gen of consoles? Or just upgraded to fully utilize the graphic capabilities of our PCs?

I want either a Sonic Adventure or Sonic Adventure 2: Battle HD Remake. Those games were my childhood, despite their numerous flaws, but I'd kill to see those get remade with modern engines

Bushido Blade just begs for a good modern remake. It was a weapon-based fighting game for PSX that tried to emulate actual swordfights - a complex limb-based damage system, realistic movesets, and rounds that could be finished in literally a second with a well-placed slash. It was a very ambitious (and surprisingly polished) game for its time, but it didn't sell very well due to not being a more conventional fighting game like Street Fighter Alpha or Tekken 3. Nowadays, however, we have highly popular titles like Dark Souls and For Honor, which rely both on strong PVP and realistic melee combat - we finally live in a time where a game like Bushido Blade can actually find a strong niche. It kinda baffles me there's not even a single Bushido Blade copycat in the first place, this is a concept that can bring millions of dollars in modern generation of gaming.

S.T.A.L.K.E.R series, AoE 1 and 3 (But I've heard that they will be remade, and I even seen some remake of 1 AoE), GTA VC, American Conquest (Especially Divided Nation Expansion beacuse I can't find it anywhere) , SWAT 4, and World in Conflict, I don't have problems on W10 like @Latur Husky but multiplayer doesn't work

STALKER is perfect as it is, I think - there are tons of flaws of course, but they only add to the game's charm in a way. Similarly with Vice City or SWAT 4 - graphics are dated, sure, but in all other regards, both games are kinda perfect, I don't even know what to improve in them .u.

(the fact that there's no SWAT 4 on Steam genuinely baffles me - it's the best entry in the series, and we have all the other games to buy, so, like, what the hell?)

Well, it would be nice to play it with better graphics and animations, on the new OS there are problems with Vice City, and STALKER have optimization problems

On the other side, newer graphics tend to mess up the core gameplay. Especially when it comes to games like Vice City, which were designed around stylized graphics, and making them "fancier" will result in less appealing atmosphere and more confusing gameplay as a result. A good example of that is FlatOut: Ultimate Carnage - it was a next-gen remake of FlatOut 2 with modernized graphics, but busier visuals resulted in more distracting shaders and FXs on the screen, which messed up actual driving a lot. With STALKER, while graphics are dated, they perfectly convey the atmosphere of Eastern European ruins - frankly, it's the last game I would want to see being "modernized", since it could turn a fantastic Chernobyl landscape into some generic CoD-like "ruincity".

Well here's an example how it could be remastered

Modern shaders and filters combined with blocky PS2 models and rough-butt animations... Dunno, looks like a visual designer's nightmare to me. Again, every decision on Rockstar art team's part was made to compliment the blocky style of GTA:VC. Modern stuff just clashes with it.

Everyone has their own ideas and preferences. And not all of us know the ins and outs of graphic design (I sure as shit don't) so don't feel bad if someone doesn't agree with you on something!
This is just a fun little thread so no frowns. :)


Since I've got two PS2 era games I love coming back my way, another one I'd like to see remade is Katamari. It's such a stupid game, but it is just so color and fun and I can't help but be happy when I play it. I don't even need anything to change. Just let me play it on the PS4. And maybe add a few more levels. And make the multiplayer online as well as offline.

I know some folks may hiss at the titles I will use as my stance on gaming, but I enjoy the shock hammer reactions, shows people are still alive.

Metroid prime: Need I say more? Now the Wii port of the game is still shit and shitely sour. I liked prime because it added a world of biological learning, lord and stable good things for a homecoming. Id like to see it grafted with new graphics and updated support for everything that it was.

Halo 3 ODST: Now my main issue is I loved ODST even for how cartoony of a game it was, but I'd like to see it remade and turned into something more mature, dark and shocking like the difficulty of reach was. Indeed ita crummy but fun honest fps but I feel it could be so much more if then didnt asset flip 90% of Halo 3 into a shooter comedy jazz mystery that still came out good. But when I think of ODST world and story wise, I picture being more fraile, mortal, genocial blood luster enemies mauling and dismembering citizens in the city, a losing war with the bright african strides of the city and the military scifi lore that made halo so great.

System shock 2: Go ahead taze me bro, I like being simulated to fight an AI more evil then what 343 tried to turn Cortana into in halo 5. I know they are making a full 3d solid fps survival remake of the first system shock: but SS2 is the only one in the series that was playable and good for the gene pool of the bioshock bone marrow.

Never thought I'd agree with you but hell yeah H3 ODST! And what else would be good games to remaster... Oh I know the original Spyro trilogy. That would be awesome. As long as they don't make it fucking Skylander Spyro. *gags*

I really enjoyed Spiro 2 Ripto's Rage and would definitely like to see it remade.

Agreed, so long as I get to work on them. I had a blast working on the 3rd Spyro. I only wish I’d have worked on the first two!

The skateboard game was epic, I got addicted.
Alas I cannot claim credit for that. I worked on the Sparx levels, the side-scrolling Sheila one (I can’t recall its name), about half of the Fireworks Laboratory and the fireworks used in the final credits.
