Best Remake / Remaster for 2020

Many new original games were offered in 2020, but it was also a great year for reimagining, remaking and remastering the first beloved game released, from a few years ago to the original era of PlayStation. ..

To celebrate some of the best remakes and remasters of the year that rejuvenate RPG, horror, sports and Soulsborn games, these are the best remake / remaster nominations for 2020.

Best Remake / Remaster for 2020

Demon’s Soul

The Bluepoint Games, while strikingly faithful to the source material, modernized the game 10 years ago and won the gold medal again. Demon’s Souls shines on the PS5 with amazing environments and realistic lighting effects not possible on the PS3. But Bluepoint isn’t just about painting new paint. We have rebuilt this classic from scratch with great care.

Everything I remember from the 2009 original is here and will surely please enthusiastic fans. With the addition of performance and fidelity modes, you can choose the type of experience you want and showcase the power of the new console. In addition, the incredibly fast load times mean that this time there is a little less pain in dying.

It takes a lot of time to create a remake that brings your beloved game to the modern day, without over-stabilizing, respecting the original, and completely recreating the previous one. This isn’t a complete retelling of the 1997 classic, but the story told here is more than a remake, not a complete sequel, but definitely completely unique. Some characters have undergone minor personality tweaks, others have been given a more thoughtful backstory, and the entire story has been reimagined and recontextualized to completely blow away this lifelong FFVII fan. It was. As part of a much larger whole, the Cliffhanger ending may not go well with everyone, but it can be serious for the adventures it sets. Square created something very interesting in FINAL FANTASY VII Remake, but was still able to comfortably travel the path of memory.

Persona 5 Royal

Persona 5 Royal adds a lot to the original, from brand new story acts to brand new companions to stunningly redesigned combat systems and dungeons. I feel that it should be called a remake, not just an update or re-release. ..

Few of the 2017 JRPG Classics remain untouched, and virtually everything added or tuned has significantly improved the experience. Given that Persona 5 was already just a handful of the best JRPGs ever, that’s a pretty good deal. Developers who are trying to run an “enhanced” or “game of the year” version of the game and want to pull out all the stops have a new high bar to target. And thank the gods that Morgana has finally stopped telling us to always sleep.

Resident Evil 3

Like its predecessor, Resident Evil 3 has the original spirit of the 90’s with the bones of the 2020 survival horror game. Resident Evil 3 feels like the original, but has been remixed into a variety of new shapes that have been smartly updated to ease the frustration of older levels of design. Crunchy combat completes the big picture, but you’ll never feel safe for a long time in the face of relentless and truly scary enemies.

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2

It’s not easy to revive a pair of classic games that have long been considered perfect by fans, but Activision’s execution of Tony Hawk’s ProSkater 1 + 2 was nothing short of perfect. Everything the player wanted from the 1999 original and all its sequels was brought back and raised to a new height.

The new details on the map are incredible, but it maintains a reversion to the original that gives fans a nostalgic and fuzzy feel. A huge soundtrack for the original game player, back in the early 2000s, kicking back on a friend’s couch and handing the controller to a mate during a jamming out. And the fact that they have revived all the original skateboarding legends and added eight new faces to the roster has rooted more connections that players can have with both old and new skaters.
