PS2, but I want a remaster of Black Box's NFS:HP2 with the original old school physics and online capability so badly. Never gonna happen.

I agree. The video game industry is doing a poor job of archiving and granting accessibility to its own past. So many classic titles are difficult to find or almost completely lost to time now. What a shame!

Ps1 had such good games, some are lost to time. Legacy of Kain: Blood Omen, Parasite Eve, Nightmare Creatures, Team Buddies... Anyone remember Team Buddies? Now that was an interesting concept I haven't seen since. Now you have to try and emulate it on PC.

the problem with this is that modern developers often are simply not as talented as prior developers. so much of development is copy pasted and glued together that as steam demonstrated any old set of hacks can cobble something together. the demons souls remake has laid clear the perils of a game being remade by people who were not the original developers and dont quite get every aspect of the original developers visions by creating a half dragon age half demons souls abomination that quite frankly, is the artistic inferior of its PS3 release. some old games have been done quite nicely, notably the crash series and spyro, but resident evil 3 shows that theres clearly plenty of room for error here even under the best of circumstances. i dread to think what crystal dynamics would do with legacy of kain after what i read of dead sun.

I couldn't have said this better myself as a guy who grew up with the ps1 and 2 it is great to see so many awesome revivals from that era now if sony would wake the fuck up and realize the literal gold mine of IP they are sitting on they are in the same position nintendo was in the 90's they just need to wake up and realize how much they stand to gain by bringing back some of their older franchises whether they release the old games again or update them a bit and breathe new life into them

I didn't got a PS5 because I'm STILL trying to finish my library of PS1, PS2, PS3 and PS4 games and I have each console hooked up to the TV. Just last night I finished the magnificent Silent Hill 3 on PS2 and wondered why do I need a PS5 at retail launch price when I have a treasure trove of a library of old games to go trough?

Nostalgia is great when improved, but I question if a lot of the old gold was mine in this gen. Plus some of it wasn’t half as stellar as we remember- Bubsy, Parappa, Panzer Dragoon, Crash’s depth perception. If these next consoles are so sleek and clever, maybe we need more than just a polish of old games to prove them worth trading up for?

Pfft whatever, speak for yourself video title. Not one ps1 remake have been anything that I wanted it to be, catered in no way to what I actually liked about the originals. Every day is a disappointment, every day is a tarnished classic, every day is a destroyed legacy, every day is an insult.

I would have been happy with a very basic, faithful Final Fantasy 7 remake somewhere in the PS2 lifetime. Give us the exact same game at a slightly higher resolution with better textures and models, clip scenes, and fewer discs. Instead we had to wait 22 years for a complete fucking mess.

I disagree wholeheartedly with VIIR being "ambitious". It's just a lazy game remaking the tutorial of a PSX game. I do agree with all the rest. Good video!

I hope Sony allows us to play PS1 and PS2 discs, downloads and cloud streaming on the PS5 in a future update or hardware revision. For PS3 games, they'll need to shrink the CELL Processor and RSX into a system-on-chip in order for gamers to have a chance to access the majority of the PS3 library despite the open source PS3 emulator coming along nicely.

I was born during the PS2 era and I never got to play silent hill, resident evil, Crash 3, Final Fantasy 7 etc. The Mass Effect triology was something I heard of and researched but never got a chance to play in all my 20 years of living. I do believe in remakes and remasters because there are alot of hidden gems in the gaming industry that deserve a proper resurgence in my opinion.

You know, here's a crazy idea. Instead of remaking the old PS1 era games one by one, why not re-release them on PSNetwork? There are only a handful of PS1 games on there right now.

Remakes, reboots, remasters... How many memorable franchises were birthed this generation? I can’t think of a single one... Every generation before has had something that defined it, all I think of as this generation ends is microtransactions, broken promises, disappointment and boredom.. TBH I don’t have much faith in the next generation either.

@Lux Thinking about it all the bad stuff has definitely come from those 3rd party publishers solely in the interests of greed. 1st party Sony studios have put out some bangers this generation largely free of all that shit

@Andrew Raynes Played through the whole thing and frozen wilds, could tell you what happened. Though now that I think about it Days gone was surprisingly Okay. It’s funny that when I think of all the bad things done this generation it always involves EA, Ubisoft or Activision who were *GODS* in previous generations. Not that they didn’t do terrible things then (EA and their online pass BS).

It's also a big barrier to minority inclusion. If PS1 games are mostly white male protagonists, with a few white women, how long will it take to have a meaningfully diverse line-up when most big releases are part of an existing IP?

this video is totally missing or ignoring the fact that the main reason games are being remade and rehashed today, is because the newer games suck dick and the developers are too lazy or the companies too cynically motivated for profit to ever develop something that rivals what was made with passion in the past, even with newer technology and better techniques. 4:43 edit, never mind not totally

They already remastered them for the trilogy collection on PS3. But if you don't own PS3 then it boggles my mind why they haven't re-released it digitally on PS4.

Legacy of Kain deserves a modern day game that matches the Epic Shakespearean storytelling with a true next gen Console.

@Raul Rojas I'm saying,give us something in tone and structure to The Uncharted series. Something that feels like your playing a modern day blockbuster,except its now a Shakespearean mythic Epic with Vampires and dark medieval fantasy.

@Raul Rojas the problem there is that the current owners and developers acquired the IP by way of legal dispute with the developer they partnered with to make blood omen and soul reaver. both of those were creations of the talented folk at silicon knights, and soul reaver was originally an entirely different IP. unfortunately for us, without silicon knights input on the sequel games they quickly devolved into navel gazing pseudo philosophical tripe and mediocre combat, sustained purely by extremely talented voice actors.
