What if games today were demade for older consoles?

Gears of war

Gaming is going through a rather interesting trend at the moment. Gone are the days of classic games getting the HD treatment. Instead, we have modern and barely new HD games getting some extra oomph in remastered editions. What if this trend was reversed, and developers purposefully took some of their franchises back to “the good ol’ days”?

Gamers over at Neogaf have taken this concept into their own hands. There’s quite a handful of screenshots and redone box art, but I’ve just picked a few of my favourites. Can you guess what they are? They are simple for the most part, but I have left all the answers below just in case.

TLOU

Heavy Rain

001

004

005

006

007

008

ahahahha WTF

10

  1. The Last of Us
  2. Heavy Rain
  3. Bioshock
  4. Destiny
  5. Final Fantasy XIII Versus (done up to be like Final Fantasy VII)
  6. Super Smash Bros (duh!)
  7. Vanquish
  8. Mirrors Edge
  9. Doom 3
  10. The Last Guardian

So, how did you do? 10/10? That’s what I like to hear! What modern day games would you like to see go old school? Be sure to check out The Thread for many other submissions and recreations!
