Top 5 Video Game Remakes We Need!
Well I say we need what I really mean is video game remakes I want. But I do feel like all five of these games that I mention here would be big hits and sell very well and would be well received by gamers. In a day when it seems like there is a new HD Re-Master coming out every two second here are the games that I would love to see in either a HD Re-Master or in a remake, reboot or whatever you want to call it!
Streets Of Rage
The Streets Of Rage series was the main reason to have a Sega Mega Drive back in the day if you ask me. All three games were incredible and the series was very popular. So why in the blue hell has it been left back in time? Sure, Sega released it on the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 and it has been part of numerous collections over the years, but I would love to see a brand new Streets Of Rage game. I am not talking about bringing it to 3D, but instead I would love it still to be in 2D, but with amazing graphics and a kick ass soundtrack.
I was never able to play Earthbound as a kid as it was not released in the UK, but I read all about it that is for sure! Over the years thanks to emulation this is a game I have beaten time and time again and to be honest the games graphics are a huge part of the charm, but I would love to see a new Earthbound game or even the original remade with amazing 3D graphics. This would be a huge seller on the Wii U (well more likely Nintendo’s next console) or perhaps they could do it on the 3DS like Square did with Final Fantasy 3 and 4! Earthbound is one of the best gaming experiences you can have and while it is on the Virtual Console it would be great to see it come back as a brand new game!
Diddy Kong Racing
Ok so I know that RARE have been out of the picture for a very long time now, but god damn it Nintendo give me a new Diddy Kong Racing. I know that Diddy is now a main part of the Mario Verse with Mario Kart, Party and Super Mash Bros. But I would love to see another Diddy Kong Racing with a new adventure mode, different vehicles and a really good challenge. This was the best racing game on the Nintendo and since this game Diddy has never been given center stage again! So come on Nintendo make it happen!
Final Fantasy VII
That “tech demo” Square and Sony showed off on the Playstation 3 was one of the biggest cock teases in gaming. Why Square have not made this happen yet just absolutely blows my mind! This game is their biggest hit, people still talk about it fondly now yet all they are willing to do is release the old version on the Playstation 4. It is with much hope that I think perhaps this is Square testing the waters to see how it sells. Maybe for the 20th anniversary in a year or two, Square will finally announce they are remaking Final Fantasy VII………. Yeah I know it’s never going to happen, but a man can dream.
Holy crap did Dino Crisis 3 screw this franchise up! That was ten years ago and Capcom still are not willing to move on and bring this amazing series back. Dino Crisis 1 and 2 were incredible games that are still a lot of fun to play now, but they have aged. Imagine just how amazing a Dino Crisis game would be with the power of the Xbox One or the Playstation 4 behind it. This is a series that is probably not known or forgotten about by many gamers and I think a new Dino Crisis would prove to be a big hit for Capcom. I am honestly at a total loss for why Capcom have never rebooted this series.
