Don’t call me a boomer or anything but seriously, the new video games are not nearly as good as the old cult classics. But the problem is, old cult classic games are clanky, outdated, with bad graphics, etc. Luckily all of those problems can easily be fixed with remastering! Welcome to the ranking of 20 best remastered games to play in 2023.
Remaster in gaming is basically referring to improving the quality of old graphics, sounds, music, gameplay mechanics, and even parts of story in some instances. An outdated old video game can be quite fun and playable after getting a good remaster.
I would really like to see remastered versions of games such as Baldur’s Gate 1&2, Black&White, Fighting Force, Silent Hill, Freedom Fighters, and LOTR Return of The King in the future.
Well, let’s make do with what we have for now.
20 remastered cult classic video games:
1. Black Mesa
Remake of legendary Half Life.
2. Fahrenheit: Indigo Prophecy
3. Fable Anniversary
4. Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition
5. Planescape: Torment: Enhanced Edition
I would like to see a newer remaster or re-remaster version of Planescape: Torment with next-gen graphics.
6. The Bard’s Tale Trilogy
BARD GAMES < Check out similar ones.
7. Mafia: Definitive Edition
8. Resident Evil 1 – 2 – 3
3. remake of the 1999 game Resident Evil 3: Nemesis
9. Skyrim Special Edition
Best thing about this re-master is the mod compatibility. Modded Skyrim Legendary edition crashes a lot. Special Edition remake still crashes but it’s far too less frequent.
10. Mass Effect
11. Destroy All Humans!
12. Final Fantasy Series
Series of Final Fantasy games released as remakes in etc.
