    Default Games that deserve/need a remaster.

    With the Mass Effect Remastered trilogy coming out soon, I thought it would be a good idea to see what games you've played in the past that could use some upgraded graphics, bugfixes, etc.

    A couple for me would be;
    Fallout New Vegas. Fun game, when it works. On the console, its stable enough, but on PC, without mods, its very temperamental. With mods, well, its a big gamble if it will even run. The story line is great, the characters are interesting, the setting is unique, but the graphics have not aged well and the bugs and overall stability leave a lot to be desired.

    Saints Row 1 & 2. Really, the only changes, other than incorporating a few things from SR2 to SR1, would be to update the graphics in both. Even with cheats, these games are stable enough. The graphics are the only things that really need to upgraded from them. Just about everything else, especially the customization, needs to be left alone.

    No game needs a remake more than Xenogears and I'll die on that hill.

    Luckily, you can get New Vegas looking pretty decent. Better animations and even ragdoll physics can be modded in.


    I'm torn. I love New Vegas and it could definitely benefit from a remaster/remake, but there are so many great mods that I don't think I could play without anymore.

    I actually just tried to start up New Vegas from Steam. The only mods I had in where bug fixers. I would get to the settings menu before launching the game, made sure the DLC was selected, clicked play game,... And only got the menu to reload all over again.

    Predator Concrete Jungle is a game a lot of fans have wanted to see remade or at the very least a remaster. Illfonic might even be the prime candidate to do it for a remake or at the very least a spiritual successor.

    Yeah, the original AC is pretty much the only PS3-era title that hasn't gotten an upgrade. It's story and gameplay isn't exactly up to the Ezio and later stuff but it'd still be nice.

    While it was fun for its time, even back then, the missions were incredibly repetitive. Though it did lay the groundwork for future games in the series.

    Darkstalkers. All three games. And while we're at it, Mega Man ZX (and ZX Advent), too. Come on, Capcom, you've got more in your arsenal than just Street Fighter, start using it.

    Definitely, my choice is Scott Adams' Questprobe (1984/1985):

    I think a remastered version with a wider scope and better side content would be awesome. I would love to run about that era again and see how it would be as a modern AC game.

    Maybe they can redub Altair too. His first voice was kind of bland, they replaced him for Revelations.

    Kind of wonder if they just rebuilt the game from the ground up, if they'd get Kristen Bell back.


    BTW what about Red Dead Redemption I? They pretty much recreated New Austin and West Elizabeth in Red Dead II so that's half the game's map already.

    Well, I think remakes would be better, but even with a few relatively minor tweaks and some more polish, a remastered version of Phantasy Star 1-3 could get really close to the standards of Phantasy Star 4, and the nigh-perfect (IMO) Phantasy Star 4 could get even better.

    Also, I'd like to see GrimGrimoire and the Shin Megmi Tensei: Raidou Kuzunoha 1 & 2, as well as Digital Devil Saga 1 & 2 remade/remastered for modern consoles.

    Max Payne 3. The game and the multiplayer were really good barring horrible laggers which Rockstar seems to support.. Should be updated for ps4 with a good servers and no big dog ability.
