Classic Game Remakes

Remakes are the most common way to bring classic games back to life. Almost every large Game Producer released new versions of old games over the last years.

Remakes of Classic Games often include improved graphics, sounds and animations which creates the discussion of how much you should change in a game to keep it close to the original from the 1980s or 90s.

Good examples of classic game remakes are the New Super Mario Brothers for Wii or Oregon Trail for the iPhone.

May 14th, 2012

As vertically scrolling traditional shooters go, Radiant Silvergun was fun, but pretty standard.
