Other games are going the extra mile with HD remakes - remakes that completely revamp the graphics of the games and brings them into the "next gen". We've seen Street Fighter 2 update the franchise with high definition sprites, and other games like God of War 1 and 2 on the PS3 received upscaled textures and a bump up to 60 FPS. Now, we're seeing more and more developers hopping on the bandwagon, bringing more classic games back into light with fresh coats of paint.
Personally I couldn't be happier about this. Throughout my life I've grown very attached to many games and franchises, and being a tech buff and lover of 1080p, it's exciting to get to play these classics over again. When done right, the effect can be very nostalgic for older players, and just as captivating to newer ones. Offered at lower price points, these games can be appealing to almost everyone, while introducing younger generations to titles they might otherwise never experience.
