Game of the Year 2020 – Best Remaster / Remake –

As the end of the year approaches, we’ll launch the Game of the Year Awards and dive into more than 12 different categories to celebrate the best we’ve seen since the beginning of 2020.

Especially in the last few years, there has been a tendency for quick remasters to make some of the game’s visuals and give way to a full-fledged remake of an old classic. Publishers are delighted to dig up the nostalgia people felt for games like Crash Bandicoot (2017 winner) and Resident Evil 2 (2019 winner), but the developers are actually I worked harder to make them. There is a difficult balancing act other than just creating a new graphic. They decide if gameplay is still tolerable to modern gamers and where to make changes, improvements, and additions.

It’s been under development for the last 5 years, but since the fans have been constantly demanding it for the last 15 years, our winner is …

How do you remake one of the most beloved video games of all time? Well, you probably won’t start by raising expectations with graphical tech demos that you have no real intention to follow up with. It may have been a PR fake pass for the PlayStation 3 era, but PS3 tech demo Square made fun of us in 2005 only proving that there was a demand for a complete remake of FINAL FANTASY VII. ..

Still, SQUARE ENIX decided to not only rebuild the graphics of the game, but also delve into and extend the underlying story-character relationship, which would make this a vast project to undertake. I was faithful to the words. We’ve extended the game until it’s split into its own trilogy, The Hobbit Style. This may not have been strictly necessary (some changes have been split), but most will work.

Genre of the battle of the turn-based is still JRPG (Hello, Dragon Quest XI) located in, but Square has decided to shelve them for Final Fantasy VII remake. The battle here still contains elements of the original ATB system, but it’s more dynamic, and certainly looks flashy, but packed with the same tactical nuances. Overall, this is a staggering remake, and hopefully the foundation is in place so you don’t have to wait until Square offers your next installation.

Demon’s Souls-Runners

Demon’s Souls, arguably more respected as a cult classic compared to FINAL FANTASY VII, is ahead of one of the game’s most famous franchises. However, when it was first launched on the PlayStation 3 in 2009, it was a niche definition and became popular with word-of-mouth when Die Hard of RPGs chased imported copies.

Demon’s Souls are as insensitive and unfriendly as they were years ago. Sony and Remaster … Bluepoint Games Masters believe it will be the perfect launch game for the PS5. In a way, it shows off the raw power of the console and proves that Sony isn’t just wandering around to mainstream viewers. While some purists have problems with some of BluePoint’s visual upgrades, this remake brings FromSoftware’s brutal fantasy RPG from its horrifying books to fluid combat and character customization options. It fully reflects.

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 – Runner-up

The Tony Hawks Pro Skater is one of the sports franchises that allowed us to ride the rapidly changing and popular halfpipe. Activision tried to update its first game on ProSkater HD in 2012, but fans weren’t waiting for a sacred return, but this year’s Tony Hawks 1 + 2 is thankfully they wanted. It was.

Putting the first two games together in the series, this time with a complete visual up-to-date generation of buffs, the soundtrack has the appropriate Hawks-like updates, and every skater who wants to push into a skater. It was packed in the roster. All the obstacles out there. With the addition of numerous accessibility options and enhanced endgames, you can see why this won one of our sacred 10/10s.
