Do you support video game HD remakes/remasterings?

[ Edited ]

In January we saw the release of Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition for the PS4 and Xbox One which offers improved graphics of the Tomb Raider video game which was just released last year. This past Tuesday, Fable Anniversary was released for the Xbox 360 which is a remastering/remake of Fable: The Lost Chapters which was released in 2004. Do you feel that we should support video games such as Tomb Raider that were released a year or two before that come with a $60 price tag? What about video games such as Fable Anniversary which provide you with the same classic experience that Fable: The Lost Chapters provided (if you played it; or whichever game is remastered)?

 

I'll "rebuy" a video game if the original version was really good but, in my opinion, I feel that buying games such as Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition is not worth it considering I can pick up a copy of the GOTY Edition for $35 and that it was just released last year. On the other hand, Fable: The Lost Chapters was released 10 years and Fable Anniversary is only $40 and I feel that the $40 price tag is fair for what it offers.

I do, yes, although Im against the remastering of TR because of how recently it was released. if the game has been out for several years, Im fine with it though.

If I missed the game when it originally came out, I am more inclined to buy it.

I never gotten into the PS2 so I played most of the games I missed with remasterings.

Funny that you mention that. I just saw someone post this photo on Facebook:

If HD remakes/remasters help to introduce a comtemporay audience to a video game they never played for the first time when it was originally released then yes, I support it.

Only if I lost the game years ago. I'd gladly buy a HD remake of Star Wars Battlefront 2, Marvel Utlimate Aliiance or Spider-Man 2 (ps2).

 

I feel Tomb Raider Definitive Edition was just a money grab, what do I gain buying it on current gen over last gen except some DLC?

If I enjoyed the game or never got the chance to play it, but was interested in it, then yes.

HD Remakes? Yes.
GOTY Editions? No.

HD Remakes are perfect for people who didn 't play a certain franchise but want to. For example, I never played Kingdom Hearts back in the day. But thanks to the KH HD Remix 1.5 I can. And with Kingdom Hearts HD Remix 2.5 coming this month I'll be all caught up before KH3.

GOTY Editions are good for people who want everything at once. I don't like them because I often buy games I want on Day 1, and will purchase DLC if I want it. The GOTY editions completely invalidate Day 1 purchases. They pay full price and get free DLC, for which I had to pay. It's hard not to feel ripped off.

How else can I play Persona 4 golden or danganronpa without remasterings?

By the way, why rehash something without any new features? Graphical upgrades? Availability to a new system?

The TR comparison isn't really fair though. The reason it got a re-release was because of the new console that just happened to be coming out really soon. It gives console players the chance to see the game at its best. And since the PS4 is a very PC esque machine, I assume they ported the PC version over.

 

The re-release of TR is an excellent chance to pick it up on this gen if you never got it on the PS3.

 

That irony is the re-release of zelda has the same graphics as 10 years ago. So which one is actually "useless"? Smiley LOL
