Over the years, massive numbers of video games have come into our lives, and some of them are just too good to be forgotten. Because we just love these games so much, game companies have given us a way to relive the adventures by creating HD remasters and remakes. Video game HD remasters and remakes began in the year of 2009 when God of War Collection, originally for the PS2, was released for PS3. Since then, more of these remasters have come in play and has become common in the gaming industry today. Thanks to these HD remasters, fans can re-experience nostalgia-inducing journeys.
But not every video franchise has gotten their remastered version yet, and there is definitely a lot of them that deserve it. So today, we’ll be giving you a list of 5 Games that would look great with HD Remasters.
Resident Evil 2
Capcom’s Resident Evil franchise has been a very long series indeed, each one following the stories of different character’s as they fight for survival in Raccoon city. With how well the first Resident Evil was remade and remastered into the current generation consoles, it would follow that the same treatment would be given to its sequel, Resident Evil 2. Considered as one of the best games for the PS1 era, Resident Evil 2 would sit perfectly with a remaster in the new generation. Last year, Capcom released news that they will be working on a remake of Resident Evil 2.
Fatal Frame II: Crimson Butterfly
A gem in the horror genre during the PS2 era, Fatal Frame II: Crimson Butterfly throws you in a terrifyingly unique experience. Amid all the guns and zombies, Fatal Frame dealt with ghosts using a special camera. While ghost stories may not be as popular as themes explored in today’s horror games, Fatal Frame’s take on “scary” just might be a refreshing experience.
Bloody Roar 2
Among the fighting games back in the day, Bloody Roar 2 wasn’t a game that you could ignore. What made it unique from other fighting games was that its characters could transform into beasts that could affect their moves and attacks. Although it didn’t fair well unlike other big names in the fighting game scene, Bloody Roar 2 is one of the most nostalgic games in the genre that could well improve if given a chance to have a remake.
Released in 1998 for PS1, Rival Schools is one the many fighting games developed by Capcom which features students and faculty from different schools fighting with one another. Rival Schools follows the story of students who are moving to end a conspiracy involving the school staff. It has a team based system similar to Capcom’s versus series and features mechanics such as juggles, air combos, and team supers. Rival Schools is a great game in its era, and if given the chance to upgrade its graphics and tweak its gameplay, then it would be just as great today.
Crash Bandicoot: Warped
Now that its original developer, Naughty Dog, has climbed up to the top, Crash Bandicoot fans have been badly begging for a comeback from their favourite marsupial. One of its games, Crash Bandicoot: Warped well deserves a remaster and remake. Although its mechanics are similar to the first two games wherein Crash jumps through obstacles and spins for a fight, what makes Crash Bandicoot: Warped awesome is how stages are placed as time warps. Each stage has challenges that are unique to themselves, a few examples are the dinosaur chase challenge in the pre-historic stages and the tiger ride in the Chinese-themed ones. Plus, Crash Bandicoot: Warped is the first in the main entries of the series where you can play as Crash’s sister, Coco!
