10 Horror Video Games Dying To Be Remade

Bring back The Suffering asap.

Midway

The success of Resident Evil's stunning remakes is undeniable by this point, with rumours of the series' fourth entry to receive the treatment seeming somewhat inevitable by now.

Rather than just remastering their old titles, the quality of the likes of Resident Evil 2 and 3 lies in how what worked in the past is maintained, whilst the potential in the stories and settings which old consoles couldn't make the most of is given a new lease on life.

Of course, Resident Evil isn't the only horror franchise out there and there are myriad titles, either widely beloved or more cult favourites, that are just as deserving of a resurrection. And for some titles, the potential they had but didn't realise could finally be showcased, resulting in some exquisite horror games for the new generation.

Whether more action-orientated fare or psychological chillers, these are ten horror titles that are dying to be remade for modern audiences. Potential is key, rather than faithful recreations of games which may not have aged well.

Suffice to say, Resident Evil 2 Remake and its ancestor play rather differently and we would want these ten titles to see similar improvements.
