With this list, we’re going to list a series of new versions of video games that have managed to grab the attention of players of all kinds, as while many enjoyed playing again, others discovered for the first time genuine gems that couldn’t be missed.
What’s the difference between remastered and remake?
As the name suggests, the remake is a reworked work. In other words, the developers built on the original idea for the game, but wrote the code from scratch to offer a completely new version that makes the most of the new platform it runs on. Final Fantasy VII is one of the great examples.
Remasters, on the other hand, start with the basics of the original game, in which case the developers update the graphics and textures to make the game look much better. Typically, in today’s releases, remasters are ready to play in 4K and enjoy more detailed images.
