Best Video Game Remakes
It seems like video game remakes are everywhere these days. Whether it's a classic platformer getting an HD facelift or a first person shooter getting a complete overhaul, tons of developers are cashing in on the game remix craze. And hey, if an old favorite returns better than ever, who's to say that a remake is a bad idea? More games is always a good thing!
BioShock Remastered - The first BioShock game? Gorgeous. BioShock Remastered? Also gorgeous! This remake and re-release of a pillar in the first person shooter genre comes with more than just prettier pictures. All new challenge rooms, exclusive achievements, high resolution textures and models, director's commentary, and support for 4K resolution are just some of the highlights. Even if you're a seasoned BioShock fan, this game's remake is worth checking out.
DOOM - Most gamers agree that the original DOOM is the number one first person shooter of all time. DOOM 2016 is a a remake, a re-release, and a reimagining of that classic game, overhauling everything from the visuals to the gameplay and the engine at its core. The result is a totally different experience that's just as intense and enjoyable as the original. Obliterating hordes of demons while blasting through the depths of Hell has never been so entertaining.
Duke Nukem 3D: 20th Anniversary World Tour - Hail to the king, baby! Duke Nukem 3D took the world by storm when it was first released in 1996. So many guns, so many girls, so many pigs to kill, it was phenomenal. The first person shooter received a remake in 2013, but this new remake adds a few extras that make it worth your time, most notably the brand new levels created by the game's original designers. If that's not the ultimate in video game remake awesomeness, we don't know what is.
Final Fantasy III - A few years back, Square Enix started to release 3D remakes of its classic Final Fantasy titles. One of the better remakes was Final Fantasy III, first released on the NES way back in 1990. The latest remake turns the beloved RPG into a full on 3D experience, complete with awesome dynamic battle scenes. Basically, it's everything we want in a role playing game, remade!
