What games would you love Capcom to remaster?

For a long time, Capcom’s been one of my favourite development houses and publishers. Even before they gave me my beloved Street Fighter 2, they entertained me with Final Fight, 1942, Knights of the Round – and after Street Fighter 2? Gems like Resident Evil, Breath of Fire, Aliens vs. Predator, Cadillacs and Dinosaurs, Dino Crisis and Devil May Cry. They have an incredible library of great games, like a giant sack of Christmas toys. And they’ll be dipping their hands in to that sack, polishing up whatever they haul out, and give it to you again. Yes, Capcom’s making HD remasters a big part of its business.

“HD remasters of our catalogue hit titles will be one of our key business activities,” Capcom explained in a Q&A. “Overseas, it is becoming difficult to sell these lower-priced and re-mastered titles at stores because of the declining number of stores and sales area limitations. Therefore, we started aggressive digital download sales activities.

“These activities created new demand for these titles. For example, overseas download sales of Resident Evil (HD Remastered) in the past fiscal year were far higher than we expected. It is not a risk[,] but rather the growth of the download sales channel gives users more options. We regard this as growth in opportunities to have allow access for more people to enjoy our games.”

As much as we all moan about remasters, I’d be okay with this is f they’re of decidedly older games. I picked up the remake of Resident Evil, and though I’ve not really played it much, it made me rather happy to see it spiffed up like that. That HD Remaster became the fastest selling digital title in PSN’s history,

And I’d love for Capcom to give other games similar makeovers; especially some of its less well-loved properties like Dino Crisis. I’d not say no to a well-made remaster of Resident Evil 2, either. Going back? I’d stab Darryn for an HD collection of Capcom’s arcade beat-em ups, and I’d sell me own mum for the rest of the Mega Man games to get the Powered-Up and Maverick Hunter X treatment.

          It’s kind of like the idea of seinfeild.

          Leave them wanting more. The show went out on top. Not when ratings were low. Same thing. Maybe cap on shouldn’t remake them for fear they’ll end up like maxis.
          They made a great game back in the day. But the remakes …just pissed people off to the point that anything that comes out of maxis immediately is going to turn people away.

          Perhaps cap on shouldn’t remake anything.just polish and update/remaster there old games.
          That would be cool.

          Like when you plan Minecraft with a texture pack. Makes it feel like a whole new and awsome experience.

    I haven’t played the first 2 DMC games so I wouldn’t mind a remaster of them.
    Also I would love a remaster of AvP 1 and AvP 2.
    I recently pulled out my discs for AvP 2 only to discover that they no longer work.

        I played so much 1 v 1 AvP 2 with my friends back in the days before we figured out how to connect more than 2 PCs together.

        I was banned from using a Pulse Rifle or any lethal ranged Predator weapons. 😛

            Cloaking, wrist blade, spear and netgun for me.

            I loved it when the guy played as a marine, got up on a platform in the centre of the map and then ran around in circles with the smartgun trying to use the motion tracker to find me.
            With the correct timing you could get within melee range without them ever knowing.
            After this happened a few times one person came up with the idea of shooting randomly to try spot the Predator’s green blood.
            Since I was crouching while sneaking up on him it didn’t work so well. 😀
