    There are some games we cannot let go off. When the online gaming system arrived, things were still a little blurry, and innovation has not focused so much on the quality of sound and images. The major thing was that the new technology was the rave of the moment, and everybody tried to get access to it. In those days, lots of amazing games were developed and enjoyed, and because new ones are always coming up, they’ve not been looked into again as time passes by.

    However, with the arrival of high definition graphics and sounds, it will be good that some of the best-selling and breathtaking games of the olden days are remade in HD resolutions. Some of them, in particular, deserve this and they are listed below.

    Mother/Earthbound

    One of the most unusual and influential jRPGs of its time, the Mother series has a complicated history with the western audience. The first game was not released here for a long time, while the second, named Earthbound for the western market didn’t sell too good, and so Mother 3 didn’t get an official western release even after the series became a cult hit. With all that Mother series is due for an HD collection re-release – while the graphic style doesn’t need much improvements, besides possible the first game, it would be a great change for Nintendo to release Mother 3 in the west as well as make some updates to the more rough older mechanics of Mother 1.

    Arcanum: Of Steamworks and Magick Obscura

    A cult classic, widely considered to be one of the best RPGs period, Arcanum is a rough game to play. While the world, the characters and the possibilities are amazing, and the story is among the best in all of fiction, the age of the game is showing in every step. Graphics are nothing to talk about, the gameplay is rough and the game has a lot of bugs. A new, updated version could solve all of that, as well as free you of all the work you need to do, to make this masterpiece run on a modern system. With this, it will be a bomb like the casinos online.

    Star Wars: Knights Of The Old Republic

    The Star Wars is something the world loves. And while the Old Republic MMO has its place in the world, the impact and the popularity of the older RPG is not something to underestimate. While people do talk about the Star Wars prequels and the Extended Universe in a negative way, its hard to find anyone who honestly thinks bad of KOTOR games. And while Knight Of The Old Republic did get an updated ports to different platforms, the funny thing is that launching the game on Windows PC – it’s native platform is harder than any of the ports and requires additional work. Coupled with updated graphics and animations, you would get an instant hit on your hands.

    Call of Duty

    The game that started one of the biggest franchises of them all was quite different to its modern iterations – with long and involved single player campaign that gets you invested in the moment and the characters during the World War 2, original Call of Duty is without a doubt a classic. With modern graphics it could do a lot to show the next generation of games its great story, filled with accurate historical facts.

    Fallout New Vegas / Fallout 3

    The early fallout games of the Skyrim could make a huge comeback if it is re-mastered. The two games came in 2008 and 2010 respectively, and they have huge patronage and following. With Bethesda as the developers, and with the adventure in wasteland having a 4K definition, it could be one of the best games of all times. It needs to be done.

    Lego Indiana Jones

    While the Lego games are made in number, one stood out. The game that came in 2008 and got a sequel in 2009 is the best. The franchise was an amazing one among the Lego collections and people wouldn’t mind having it in a better image and sound setting. Since the firm is making new games, there is no guarantee that this will happen. But it needs to.

      I'm still hoping they remaster Legacy of Kain Soul Reaver. Don't care for any of the games they listed.

      Hopefully a true updated HD remaster on the PS4, not a reissue of the original game on the Switch! :)

      Actually, I'm one that doesn't agree with HD Remakes. I want new games that were as good as the old ones. That didn't rely on graphics and dlc. That released with a complete story-line, unlockables on disc that you don't have to buy and featured endless hours of gameplay so you could unlock characters and items to further your story. I guess I'm past the adhd generation of today that needs their fix now and immediate but I would rather my "fix" comes in the form that keeps me continually entertained and not play for a few hours and then wait for a few weeks/months for the next installment.

      I'm also sick of re-releasing HD remakes of games that I can play on an emulator and still have a better experience and better graphics than the so-called remake. It's a cash grab. Where is the originality? Where is the creativity? If you ask me, it's all gone to shit.
