11 classic games that deserve a Final Fantasy VII-style remake

    Forget remasters. Gone are the times the place builders may stretch new textures over outdated video games and name it a day. These days it’s all about remakes, raiding the late ‘90s and early ‘00s for video games that want greater than only a new coat of paint.

    Resident Evil 2 set the bar fairly rattling excessive, permitting outdated followers to relive a beloved sport the best way they remembered it, whereas additionally making a completely trendy horror sport for newcomers. It’s not on PC (but), however by all accounts Square’s Final Fantasy VII Remake does the identical. Activision created barely extra devoted remakes with Spyro and Crash Bandicoot, and is doing the identical with the upcoming Tony Hawk 1+2. The Black Mesa Project injected new life into Half-Life. 2K’s releasing a Mafia remake this summer season.

    Who’s subsequent? What different video games ought to get the Resident Evil 2 therapy? We’ve put collectively an inventory—not simply video games that deserve a remake, not simply video games that will profit from a remake, however ones the place a remake appears really possible. And sure, meaning you’ll discover few video games the dimensions of Final Fantasy VII on this record, as a result of I believe even Square underestimated the scope of that endeavor on the outset. That signifies that as a lot as I’d like to see a Fallout 2 or Knights of the Old Republic or perhaps a Longest Journey remake…nicely, I’m not holding my breath.

    Tomb Raider

    Tomb Raider really appears probably the most probably candidates for a remake. The reboot trilogy, begun in 2013, culminated in a post-credits sequence that strongly hinted at a remake’s existence—at the very least initially.

    Patched out at launch, the original ending confirmed off Lara Croft’s twin pistols and a letter from Jacqueline Natla, antagonist of the unique Tomb Raider. These particulars have been eliminated by the day one patch, maybe to stop hypothesis about this very remake. And but…what if? It’d definitely make sense, after three video games spent “becoming” the Tomb Raider, if Crystal Dynamics or Eidos rolled straight into remaking Lara Croft’s earliest adventures.

    Of course, this might even be the second such remake, as Tomb Raider: Anniversary already served the identical function again in 2007.

    Devil May Cry

    Terrible cameras are the downfall of so many video games from this period. Devil May Cry is one in all them. After Devil May Cry 5 last year I attempted for the third or fourth time to return to the start of the sequence and…I simply can’t. Fixed digicam angles are a nightmare and I’m glad we’ve left them behind.

    But I’d like to see Capcom take the identical tack with Devil May Cry because it has with Resident Evil. Give me these early tales working within the RE Engine, with trendy combos and trendy voice performing and (most significantly) a contemporary digicam, and I’d be completely satisfied to provide the sequence a second shot. I believe I lastly perceive why individuals love the sequence, however even 2018’s Devil May Cry HD Collection isn’t sufficient to get me to undergo by means of that first sport in its present incarnation.
