A huge point that alotta ppl are missing: There are top games and niche games that people haven't played yet, simply because they either never owned that console to which it's exclusive, or just never had the money, or whatever other reason. But in 2015, they pick up a next-gen console, they'd love it to be able to play these games that they missed out on.

Like for example, I owned a Xbox 360, i've never played UnChartered, Gods of War, Last of Us. But let's say I buy a PS4 (i game on PC at the moment, but still appreciate consoles), I wouldn't mind them remastering the whole UnChartered series and stuff like that. These are number 1 games that I have missed out on. I'm not gonna go buy a PS3 in 2015, so I can fiiiiinnnally see what all the hype is about with The Last of Us. So them offering remastered versions of these great timeless games are perfect, even if they're remasters of a game that came out a year ago. This goes the same for other non-exclusive games. And besides, it only increases the value of next-gen consoles, bcuz you now have access to a greater library of games. Ya, they're not brand new IPs, but they're old games that u wish u cud've played before, and now you can

I want an Uncharted collection. And I'd much rather they remastered the great God of War 2 than the meh GoW3.

The Last Of Us Remaster turned one of the best games I've played into a pretty version of that game with 4-5 glitches that I didn't experience in the original. Better overall for running at a decent framerate, but with added frustration.

The Team Ico Remaster (don't care about SotC) of Ico made one of my two favourite games ever even better. If Ico and Demon's Souls never come to a new platform I will keep that tech forever just to play them.

Sorry MCC did not hurt it that bad. Only the multiplayer audience. Now it's fixed. As far as remasters. I have to agree. The thing you guys forgot to mention is price point for remasters. They offer a better digital download system now and offer it cheaper over time with great deal.

@sammoth: MCC didn't really hurt, but it still sucked ass. Most of us bought it because we wanted those old MP maps, and it didn't work. But, it worked eventually so we can do it now. Waiting years, wait another few months; ain't going anywhere else for that experience. I was more pissed off that I played the TLoU remaster a couple weeks ago and I suffered a few glitches that I never experienced in 3 plays of the PS3 version. Nothing game breaking at all. But detrimental to the experience for sure (like a guy in the winter chapter I did a stealth take-down on who vanished, leaving me trashing in mid-air, and then two guys appeared out of thin air and killed me).

EDIT: Can the mod who okays this post let me know what I wrote that pinged it for moderation?

I just wish remasters did a better job updating the games. If its worth it then they should spend the money to do a great job. The difference from PS3 to PS4 is not that great same with Xbox 360 to XB1. So games that were on last gen should be bypassed. IF games are coming from 2 gens ago I would love for them to change some of the story or mechanics, and make it work.

@Ravenlore_basic: I haven't played many console remasters on console in the last few years (PC has had some bloody awesome ones). The Ico (equal with Deus Ex as my favourite game ever) remaster was flat out amazing. The remaster of The Last Of Us (also one of the best games I've played), was significantly prettier, but came with several glitches that I never had take away from my experience in the PS3 version which I played 3 times.

@Ravenlore_basic: remasters of older games like the getaway or roll cage would be welcomed. Other obscure classics or even placing the older ones on vita would be great.

Remasters are already out of hand. I understand remastering a niche game that was good but remastering a widely bought game and expecting gamers to buy almost the exact same game with updated graphics -_- Remaster games that are at least 10 years old. Not 3 years old. Technology isn't changing that much for consoles.

@Noved23: its remastering last gen games i don't understand, like last of us, ok its 1080p but the difference is minimal compared to ps1 titles that would fare better in my opinion, and theyre like over 15 years old.

@Noved23: For you but there are a ton of people turning 16, 17, 18 and just now getting the money to play games on a new gen console. WHY should they be denied the chance to play these games because you already played them!?

@Noved23: I agree with you 100% but many gamers nowadays are faced with the difficult idea of moving on to a completely new game with a drastically differing gameplay style. They'll keep buying remade/remastered versions of material they were used to. Producers have to guarantee profit somehow, given the risk involved in investing in an entirely new franchise. (What if it doesn't catch on with casuals etc.?) Therefore they have no choice but to depend on reselling established titles on future consoles and what not to ensure a minimum monetary gain. Blasted business!

Thought I'd read about the possibility of remastering the Mass Effect series, would love it if they could make ME1 look like the sequels and work on current gen.

Also ME you had to take companions with you to level them up and outfit them. I like how in DA:I while you're in Skyhold you can outfit and level up your entire party.

Alexa holding it down against Peter & Justin supporting the remasters. Also yeah, if they remade & modernized the graphics of FF7 the way people want it, it would probably be more expensive than a brand new FF.

@brenjp: Remastered versions of games that are also on PC don't seem to get as much attention because they still don't look as good as the PC version, same thing with DmC. Last of Us and GTA V are console only(for now with GTA) so those remastered versions are the best looking versions.

@neur0sis@kyelo: Most of the time videos be they reviews or shows are a bit choppy. This livestream works perfectly though, other services(iPlayer etc)I don't have an issue.

Saying that it isn't terrible, just has some framerate issues. Thought it might be with all the comments at the bottom flowing in, but just watched the GTAV review as a test and same result. UK and Chrome here is that makes any difference?

@kyelo@neur0sis: Awesome, thanks for the feedback. Can I ask what Quality setting you are on for the low FPS videos? "Auto" is default, but the player will remember the last setting you chose, if you switch to HD/High/Low.

@neur0sis@kyelo: Had it on 'Auto', just switched between the settings and it is better on 'Low' although there a few jumps which is odd when the above video is running in 'HD' and is perfect.
