Resident Evil 3 remake is swiftly approaching, and we couldn't be more ecstatic after the success of the Resident Evil 2 remake. Re-built from the ground-up, the Resident Evil 2 remake offered improved gameplay and graphics, which is what a remake should accomplish.
Video game remakes are now more popular than they have ever been. With the ability to remake our favorite classic games, video game developers are bringing as many games as possible. Still, with so much untapped potential for video game remakes, it makes sense to compile this list. These are 10 games to remake after Resident Evil 3.
10 Resident Evil 4
Chronologically, Resident Evil 4 takes place six years after Resident Evil 2's Raccoon City epidemic. Players are in control of protagonist Leon S. Kennedy, but this time around, Leon is working directly for the President of the United States. Leon heads to Spain, which is where President Graham's daughter is reportedly missing.
After remaking Resident Evil 3, it makes logical sense to move to Resident Evil 4 next. This game would benefit from a remake for the same reasons as the other Resident Evil games. Remasters have attempted to improve the game, but a remake would make a huge difference.
9 GoldenEye 007
Developed by Rare, the company behind games such as Sea of Thieves and Banjo-Kazooie, GoldenEye 007 released for the Nintendo 64. Now that Microsoft owns Rare, it could be difficult to port a remake to a Nintendo console.
GoldenEye 007: Reloaded, which released for various platforms such as the PlayStation 3, is as close as we've gotten to a GoldenEye 007 remake. Although it did well with critics, it wasn't the remake we anticipated. Here's hoping they make another attempt at remaking GoldenEye 007.
8 Super Mario 64
Remakes are all about revamping our favorite games from the previous decades. When we think of overdue video game remakes, one that comes to mind is Super Mario 64. The best-selling game on the Nintendo 64 was a hit with fans everywhere.
The objective of Super Mario 64 is to rescue Princess Peach from the malevolent Bowser. Mario must search far and wide and unlock the hidden power of the castle. Why stop at doing a simple remake? Give the game online co-op and a plethora of new features that improve Super Mario 64.
7 The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
To the surprise of many fans, Nintendo decided to remake The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening instead of The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. Although Link's Awakening is an exceptional hit classic, Link to the Past did it all first.
It was one of the few SNES games with an extraordinary story, side quests, and items. For these reasons, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past has an enormous amount of replay value. It's a game that not only deserves but demands a remake.
6 Diablo II
It can be argued that this hack-and-slash role-playing game is still relevant two decades after its release. The servers are still active because of people returning to play through the game once more. Plenty of demand makes a Diablo II remake pivotal.
Diablo II has one of the best loot systems of any game ever made. Searching for specific enemies who drop specific loot encourages players to explore the game's locations. This loot system differs from Diablo III's, where every enemy drops class-specific loot, making Rift runs unparalleled for loot finding.
5 Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas
One reason we love Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas so much (there's too many to count) is because of its character progression. Players can upgrade skills such as running speed and strength. No other Grand Theft Auto game has incorporated such as revolutionary system—and it may never happen again.
Remake this timeless classic that people still replay for its expansive city and protagonist worthy of our admiration. This heavily inspired '90s gangster game is one of the greatest of all time and deserves a remake.
4 Grand Theft Auto: Vice City
Grand Theft Auto: Vice City is yet another game that deserves a remake. We saw the game ported to mobile devices, which shifted the dynamics of the game. However, the game hasn't received the ground-up remake that it deserves.
Why stop at giving the game a graphics overhaul? Add GTA Online to Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and give players an experience they never expected. Rockstar Games must know there is plenty of demand for this remake. It's time to take action!
3 Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2
Many of us are still playing Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2, improving our skills, hoping that one day the game receives a remake. Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 was a critic failure, but there are plenty of skateboarding alternatives. Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1-4 are all exceptional games in their own right and the Skate series contains phenomenal games that hold up today.
Since the Skate series isn't as dated and Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2 had the massive leap in gameplay, it makes logical sense to recreate this game. A reenvisioning of the game could add modes like online multiplayer and other cool features.
2 Half-Life 2
This game has consistently ranked near the top of video game lists for being one of the best video games of all time. Half-Life 2 saw an unprecedented leap in graphics and gameplay when it released way back in 2004.
Although members from the modding community have attempted to revitalize Half-Life 2 by improving its graphics, there is only so much developers can do with the game. In its current state, Half-Life 2 can only change slightly. A remake from the ground-up is precisely what the game needs.
1 Star Wars: Dark Forces
For those who missed Star Wars: Dark Forces when it released in 1995, they are missing out. Star Wars: Dark Forces spawned a series of Star Wars games, including Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast and Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy. Most importantly, the story of Star Wars: Dark Forces is a knockout.
It is widely ascertained that Star Wars: Dark Forces was the basis for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The characters are slightly different, but the similarities are there. Please, remake this classic.
