Remasters have become a bit of a growing trend in recent years. Call of Duty, Halo, Bioshock and Uncharted have all seen their titles transferred over to the latest generation of consoles, with updated graphics and small edits to improve the overall experience.
Going one further, some titles like Resident Evil 2 underwent a total remake, with just the base story and characters remaining.
Hollywood is often accused of becoming stale with its consistent recreations of classic films in the last decade, and whilst the video game industry is not in immediate danger of this, it certainly needs to be careful in choosing which titles are worth remastering.
Many that have been given this upgrade are from much more prominent franchises, whilst standalone titles or series' long since finished have been largely ignored. This is leading to many fantastic games from the late '90s and early 2000s being lost to nostalgia.
For this list, I will be looking at games that deserve more than just wistful memories. Franchises that are still ongoing - Zelda, Mario, Final Fantasy - will not be considered.
This is purely for those video games that have long since had their heyday.
