How would you feel if someone said you could play your favorite game with a graphics overhaul and drastically improved gameplay? For many of us, it is a dream come true to see our childhood video games remade. Rebuilt from the ground-up, we've seen remakes of iconic PlayStation games like Resident Evil 2, Crash Bandicoot, and Shadow of the Colossus.
There is a world of remakes left to be developed, and we couldn't be more ecstatic to play them. Chances are, one of your faves is contained in this list. These are ten PlayStation remakes we desperately want to see.
10 Resident Evil 3: Nemesis
With the release of the Resident Evil remake and the Resident Evil 2 remake, next in line is Resident Evil 3: Nemesis. In Resident Evil 3: Nemesis, players play the role of Jill Valentine, a character who we've become familiar with in the Resident Evil series.
The game could have been longer, but with a solid villain (Nemesis) and an intriguing story, Resident Evil 3 was a fun ride until the end. We can't wait for Capcom to develop an RE3 remake that lives up to the hype of the second.
9 God Of War 2
Most of the God of War games that were developed are solid entries. One that stands out, however, is God of War 2 because of its improved camera angles and hack and slash gameplay.
It contains a better soundtrack, more techniques, and more brutal boss fights. God of War 2 is available on PlayStation Now, but some time has passed since its release. It's beginning to show its age, which indicates it needs a remake along the lines of Ninja Gaiden Black.
8 Silent Hill 2
Released for the PlayStation 2 in 2001, Silent Hill 2 is still regarded by many as the scariest game of all time. Set in the town of Silent Hill, players assume the role of James Sunderland who visits the town after receiving a letter from his deceased wife. Its enemies are not the type with whom you'd strike up a conversation.
Silent Hill 2 is a cold and twisted nightmare from which there is no waking. A remaster brought Silent Hill 2 to HD, but it was negatively received for removing the town's fog among other reasons. Silent Hill 2 needs the remake it deserves.
7 Tomb Raider
It was apparent from the beginning that developer Eidos Interactive had a hit on their hands with Tomb Raider. It sold more than 7 million copies worldwide and was one of the first 3D action-adventure games ever to be made. As a result of the video game's success, movie adaptions and sequels were made.
The iconic original Tomb Raider game released for the PlayStation in 1996. It also released for MS-DOS and Sega Saturn. A remake of the game titled Tomb Raider: Anniversary was released in 2007. Years have passed since then, which is why another remake is in high demand.
6 Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2
Although some would say games like Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 and Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4 are stronger entries, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2 was far more impactful. The level design and music choices are praiseworthy. Skateboarding was popularized during the '90s in part because of this game.
Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5, released in 2015, doesn't do the series justice. End the series off on a high note with a remake of Tony Hawk's most impactful game. Maps like Venice, School II, and Skate Heaven are too memorable.
5 Grand Theft Auto: Vice City
One video game franchise that has been absent in the remake market is Grand Theft Auto. You don't have to be a video game enthusiast to have heard of the series. Grand Theft Auto: Vice City is laudable for its interactive shopping mall, local gangs, and businesses for purchase.
In respect to weapons, Grand Theft Auto V is missing several iconic Grand Theft Auto weapons. It is missing weapons like the chainsaw, flamethrower, and brass knuckles. How could Rockstar North overlook these weapons? This is yet another reason why Grand Theft Auto: Vice City deserves a remake.
4 Demon Souls
Before there was Dark Souls, Demon Souls was arguably developer FromSoftware's best game. It had less refined gameplay mechanics than Dark Souls, but the boss fights were every bit as gruesome as the rest of the Dark Souls series.
Demon Souls' story is more thought-provoking, and it had a new vibe about it when it released. With a few changes, a Demon Souls remake could become From Software's top-selling game. Plenty of people want to play Demon Souls but choose not to because of the game's dated graphics.
3 WWE SmackDown! Here Comes the Pain
WWE SmackDown! Here Comes the Pain is a masterpiece wrestling game. Compared Nintendo 64's robust lineup of wrestling games, Here Comes the Pain has more refined gameplay. It was fast-paced, but not too fast-paced to lose focuses on technical wrestling expertise.
Furthermore, using a multi-tap on the PlayStation 2, players could play with up to six people in a match! A remake could remove the need for a multi-tap. It is rumored that a WWE SmackDown! Here Comes the Pain remake is in the works. If this claim is validated, it will mark one of the most impactful days in WWE video game history.
2 Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando
We already received a remake of the original Ratchet & Clank, which initially released for the PlayStation 2. Since Ratchet & Clank for PlayStation 4 was a sales and critic success, why stop there? PlayStation fans want to see all of the Ratchet & Clanks remade in glorious 4K 60fps.
A good place to start would be Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando. It was a highly impactful game in the series, making gameplay changes unlike we've seen before. With a score of 90% on Metacritic, a Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando remake needs to happen.
1 Twisted Metal 2: World Tour
Nearly everyone who owned the original PlayStation owned a copy of a Twisted Metal game. Multiple Twisted Metal games released for the PlayStation, but many would agree that Twisted Metal 2: World Tour has the edge. As a multiplayer title, few PlayStation games compare to the explosive battles of Twisted Metal 2: World Tour.
The objectives of the game are to eliminate opponents and to be the last person standing. Twisted Metal takes a spin on the demolition derby by taking the demolition aspect to heart. The game is like Mad Max with an emphasis on vehicle destruction. We haven't seen any activity from the Twisted Metal franchise in a while, so it's time for a Twisted Metal remake.
