I chatted with bezza from this poll about RE 1 being remastered and I have a serious concern with all these games getting remastered. My biggest issue is the fact that nothing drastically will be done to these games and TLOU was almost a port other than 60 FPS added. If you read most reviews of TLOU the graphics are a minimum upgrade.
My largest concern is the price being $50-$60 for games that should be $30-$40 if nothing drastically has changed. Now with RE1 i don't even consider that the best game of the series. If they should have rebooted one of the RE games it should have been Re2. RE 2 was my favorite RE game besides outbreak one or RE 4. I know RE1 remastered is coming from the WI version but its still is only getting cosmetic changes and a new camera angle and slight changes to the stiff outdated control mechanics. A reboot would be worth $60 if the story was changed around, complete redone cutscenes and gameplay that allow you to move and shoot at the same time etc. Oh and the graphics must be completely redone(NEXT GEN LEVEL) and not just a few touches here and there.
Now after TLOU is remastered we have RE1, Sleeping Dog and rumour of beyond 2 soul is also probably coming. This is a quick cash grab with very little more than likely 6 months of time spent by developers to remaster a game. Its pathetic that they have the nerve to charge $60(which is AAA new IP type of cash). I want buy any of these games to defy these changes in game trends so this foolishness doesn't get out of hand. As far as I am concern it is already out of hand but they will not get my cash.
I know new IP's take 3-5 yrs to make and cost a ton of money. But why do we want uninspired, unimaginable and plain old dead IP's that should stay dead(unless rebooted) ? The only developer which I have stated before that can get away with a remaster is Rockstar. Anything rockstar does is always high quality and worth your money whether you actually end up liking the game. GTA5 looks like the graphics are almost completely redone. The game looks like a totally different game. I can't wait to see all the upgrades the game has to offer. Maybe you guys can educate me but rockstar doesn't charge for all these packs and DLCs. Just look on psn+ and see not only is TLOU $50 but they are charging for all these new caps and weapons that should have been included with the remastered version.
My question is where will this remastered craze end? I hope it ends soon when these games are boycotted or banned by the consumers. So I reason with gamers to not continue putting up with this nonsense.
Slightly off topic, I wander if Uncharted 4 is going to be a great game with all these people still leaving. I wander if naughty dog remastered TLOU because they have money issues and have internal problems in their company. I respect naughty dog for the games they make but I don't care for TLOU and how it was done for ps4.
