Editorial: 10 Games That Need An HD Remaster

Use your ← → (arrows) to browse


We’ve been seeing a lot of classic games get some awesome HD re-releases lately. Kingdom Hearts, Windwaker, Tales of Symphonia and as shown above Final Fantasy X/X2. Some may think of these as cheap cash ins feeding off our nostalgia (and excuse not to do backwards compatibility on consoles). Personally I think they are great ways to see the games even better than you remember them and a chance for games to find new audiences as well. They could also be a great way to quickly bulk up sparse libraries for new consoles, so I’ve picked 10 I’d really like to see happen that hopefully someone is at least thinking of working on for next-gen.

  • Geoff Porter

    This guy is really into JRPGs

  • Manuel Granados

    I would love a Chrono Trigger/Chrono Cross HD remake.
    Max Payne 1/”

  • ClintMurphy

    for shame no shenmue titles

  • Sparky_The_Bard-barian

    KOTOR was not Bioware’s first game with a Morality System. That honor belongs to the Baldur’s Gate series, which would do well with an HD re-release.

    • merwanor

      Baldur’s gate has a hd re-release…. Baldurs Gate enhanced edtion….

  • Greasy

    metal warriors for the snes! imagine, same side scrolling 2D platformer deathmatch gameplay, but with up to date, shiny HD graphics, and massive online matches with hundreds of mechs. it has to happen.

  • merwanor

    Kotor is an obvious choice, but I am surprised about Mark of Kri, as that is a fairly unknown game. I have very fond memories from it, and I did not even know that it had a sequel.

    I would love a remake of Soul Reaver and Gothic 1 and Gothic 2.

    Happy to see Jade Empire and KOTOR up here…those were my favorites in the early 2000′s.

    I’m still wishing for a PS3 Dragon Quest, but that’s not happening at this point, I’m sure. I’d also LOVE to see a new or ‘remastered’ Phantasy Star game. PS 1 and 2 were my absolute favorite games for the SMS and the Genesis.

  • Nelson Uribe

    I want Castlevania Lamment of Innocence from PS2 <3

  • Roman


  • James Bond

    I think FFVII deserves a remake.

  • Michael Johnstone

    Lunar Silver Star Story, and Lunar: Eternal Blue. GO

      Those are two of my favorites, but I’ve played them a ton between the original and re-releases they’ve already done.

  • J. Chris Bourdier

    Doom and Doom 2. Leave the gameplay and pacing alone. Don’t add levels or complexity. Leave the antiquated controls alone. Just update the graphics, sounds, and music.

    I’d buy them all over again at full price.

    Do the same thing for Heretic, Hexen, and Wolfenstein 3D.

  • Gamer101

    Notice that they’re all JRPG’s. There are plenty of action adventures, strategys, simulations, beat em’ ups, racers, fighters, platformers and western RPG’s that can be remade in HD too you know.

  • http://mediumentertainment.blogspot.com/ Eric Chrisman

    Wow, you don’t really read do you? 1. I list two Western RPGs (KOTOR and Jade Empire, both Bioware games). 2. Mark of Kri & Pyschonauts aren’t rpgs. 3. This is by no means a definitive list of the only 10 games that need a remaster and nothing else. This is simply 10 out of many (we could probably list hundreds if we really wanted to), I actively encourage you to mention ones you think deserve a HD upgrade/remaster. The worst “crime” I’m guilty of is making the list a little rpg heavy, but that’s my favorite genre, so what?

    Rogue Galaxy really doesn’t get the exposure it deserves! I recently bought a Ps2 console to introduce my son to some classic RPG’s and he is currently further through Rogue Galaxy than me! A sequel especially on next gen consoles would be as close to epic as you could get.Adam
