        Westworld is a good example of this. The original Westworld movie is good, but it's not so good there's no where left to go with it. It's also not that beloved of a movie. It's a cult film.
        Planet of the Apes is another one, or more accurately the sequels to Planets of the Apes, which is what the recent trilogy were based on. Good enough, well remembered enough, but not masterpieces.

            I specifically said the sequels. New Planet of the Apes is a remake of the latter half of the original Planet of the Apes series. Movies 4, 5, and 6, I think. You gonna tell me those are classics? Can you name them without checking?

            The ending is the only memorable thing about it. Onions Green is another Charlton Heston movie that really is pretty average but is saved by a twist ending that had pop culture longevity. Both films are kind of slogs.

              No, I'd say the original is legitimately a very good movie. Most people don't even know they made the sequels though. Maybe the second one where the underground mutants worship an unexploded nuke.

      This is easier to do with movies than games. There are a lot of movies that are good in concept and would benefit from a different execution. With games there aren't as many examples of that. To even qualify as a remake it would have to maintain some mechanical similarity to the original, right? You wouldn't call Batman Arkham Asylum a remake of Batman on NES. But that's what would happen if you were to do a good remake of a shit game. They'd share a title and characters and nothing else.

        I don't think that has to be true. You can look at Metroid Zero Mission, which is still very mechanically rooted in the original game, but tightens it all up, and goes a step further with it.

          By handholding the player and undermining the main point of the game? Zero Mission has a proto giant arrow telling you where to go that you see in all modern games, and the new area isn't good gameplay wise. It's a fine game but not an improvement.

          These posts are in a nutshell the problem here. Games are so deeply rooted in their mechanics that it's inherently controversial to screw with them. I suppose you could pick up an absolute shit tier game but then, again, it stops being a remake. What would a "good" Superman 64 remake look like? To be good it would have to be a mechanically unrelated Superman game.

            Well, my example of a Megaman Legends remake I think would be a pretty straight forward thing. You keep the basic story the same, you keep the basic structure of the game the same, but you make it control a lot more tightly. You could also retranslate it into English so his name is actually Rock Volnutt, like it's supposed to be.

            Still a niche game, but there is potential by just getting the issues sorted to have a mich better time than the original offered.

      Agreed, that's why they should remake Castlevania 64, the game's ALMOST good. Tightening up the controls and combat, fix the camera to bring it more in-line with modern 3D action games, and combine the two games into one like it was intended to be, would genuinely have people re-assessing it and getting excited just off the potential a remake of that game would hold.

        I would want completely reworked animations and genuinely good photorealistic environments. The last Castlevania game we've seen with modern graphics was Lords of Shadow 2 and that doesn't at all give me what I want from Castlevania.
        For Castlevania 64 I wouldn't mind seeing it reworked heavily. An extended campaign would be great, really leaning into the Romanian vampire hunter trappings; naturally add towns between certain sections like in Simon's Quest, add more whip/magic upgrades outside of the power-up that vendors in town can sell, a church to heal in, more enemy variety, more classic enemies like flea men, werewolves that naturally prowl outdoors when the moon is out, improve combat by adding combo whip attacks, dodging, but keep a weighty, visceral feels unlike Lords of Shadow. Honestly I just want a new Castlevania with new ideas and genuine vision from someone who gets it.

    WarCraft 1 could use a remake. I wonder what the divide would be like between people who want to keep the Road mechanic and people who want it gone? I personally don't mind it, but on the other hand i'm also glad it wasn't brought back in Wc2.
    Super Widget is another game that could use a remake. It had potential, the power ups were pretty cool, the music was decent, but over all it was a mediocre experience.
    The MegaMan gameboy games (especially 5) and MegaMan Xtreme and Xtreme 2 could use remakes. Those games are not anywhere close to as well known as their console counterparts.

      My man. I would love wc1 remade just for hotkey and modern controls. In fact I should research and see if fans have modernized a version of it. I don't want new graphics, I just want to feel ungimped. A custom game editor that could change max group size, max population, and toggle command shortcuts on/off, that would do it for me.

        I definitely agree with that. Wc1 is simple but fun, and being able to group more than 4 units would be so fucking nice. It's quite tedious preparing/organizing attacks in the later missions of the campaigns.
        I think the music should go untouched, honestly it still sounds quite nice. Could use more unit sounds though, i'm surprised they had so very few, especially in comparison to wc2. Maybe they just didn't have the time or resources around then.

      Yesss. I made the mistake of buying returns and freeze. They’re just shitty generic platformers with none of the momentum or fun of the originals. The graphics are pretty good and the characters translated well. But it just feels like I’m playing ducking rayman legends or something not dkc. At least with what they did in crash 4 it still feels like you’re playing a crash game.

          Of course. It clearly had a tiny budget and it was used to perfection. It's a prime example of how to prioritize your game. You can see through walls, your character clips through everything, it looks very simplistic. Except for the attack animations, they look excellent. While the movement is finnicky to get a grasp of initially, the movement and amount of agency and freedom you have mechanically has never been topped, and not even a 1:1 remake would suffice.

            Why is 30 fps and fluid control so impossible these days? Platinum games does it? The game has the best mechanics of any modern beat em up, yakuza hasnt come close to this even after so many games.

    I would love to see a remake of Silent Hill 4. I think the concept of The Room is the coolest one of all of them, but the execution was flawed. A remake could fix stuff like the annoying ghosts, going through the same locations once again with Eileen, certain sounds that sound goofy for the game and more.
    I wish the philosophy of remakes would be to remake flawed games that had a lot of potential but due to hardware limitation, poor execution or anything else, they didn't get to shine at the time. But I guess it's just easier to remake the classics

    I'm going to be honest this screenshot looks pretty good and faithful to the original compared to most other remakes that go for a complete artsyle overhaul. Sure it's a little wet because they wanna show off muh graphix for Unreal Engine 5 but the palette seems mostly similar especially just looking from the thumbnail. The only problem I can think of from the trailers is they are making James seem way too over-expressive and dramatic. Original James looked numb and out of it while nuJames looks "oh my god I'm soooo depressed and sad :~~*(( I just wanna end it all fuck subtlety..."

    It'd be enough if they just upped the framerate to make it play smoother. No other change necessary.
    As it is, I like playing the game with slightly increased CPU cycles in DOSbox, even though it makes the game faster the smoothness makes it a lot more playable today. And then I have a button mapped to setting the cycles lower when it's necessary, like when sniping.

    would like to have Rage Racer remade. No other game has these mechanics and it would really benefit from better hit detection, analogue controllers apart from the negCon and obviously better graphics.

    I think there should be a niche market for such a game, since there aren't many assets it would work with a small budget and team. And I'm certain, Keica would love to make a nice rendered intro for us.
