Remakes Poll

Earlier this week, Remedy announced that it was remaking the first two Max Payne games. It's early days, but it's the kind of announcement that gets fans of the original titles dreaming of what could be. Indeed, remaking classic games is something that's becoming more and more common as our nostalgia for bygone console generations grows. And on top of that, remakes can be a great way to hook new players into an existing franchise.

What we're saying is that remakes are going nowhere anytime soon. When you consider the sheer amount excitement that enveloped the reveal of Final Fantasy VII Remake, for example, it's easy to see why publishers are often so eager to delve into their back catalogue.

But remakes don't always satisfy everyone, as you'd expect. Even extremely highly rated remakes, like Demon's Souls on PlayStation 5, can be chastised by fans for taking certain creative liberties. Developing a beloved remake of an already beloved game can be incredibly difficult — there's a very fine line between updating an old title for a modern audience, and removing what made it so special to begin with.

And so we have to ask: do you like remakes? Do you like it when your favourite games of old are earmarked for the remake treatment? Vote in our polls, and then expand on your opinion in the comments section below.
