This week, we got a closer look at Mass Effect Legendary Edition. For years, BioWare’s amazing trilogy has been at the top of my list of games I want to see retouched with modern technology. Granted, it is more of a remaster, but the enhancements and adjustments seem like enough to make a new playthrough feel fresh regardless. But that got me thinking: If I assume that a full Mass Effect remake is completely off the table now, what are the other games that I want to see get rebuilt from top to bottom?
It’s a tricky question to answer, because everyone has a different idea of what makes a good remake. In some ways, it’s about recreating a classic experience – but remakes should also be free to veer off the previous path and explore some new directions (like Final Fantasy VII Remake did). The original game should also be old enough to see a clear benefit from new technology. With those ground rules in mind, here are my picks for the 10 remakes I want to happen.
