In The Year Of The Remaster, Which Was The Absolute Best?
Yes, it's unfortunate that many of 2014's best games were all redone, overhauled, retooled versions of older games.
But rather than whining about it, let's just ask: Which of these re-releases was the best?
Was it The Last Of Us: Remastered, with its fantastic visual upgrade and inclusion of awesome DLC? Some say we didn't need it; that Naughty Dog should've been focusing on Uncharted 4: A Thief's End this whole time but really, are we going to complain? Or was it Grand Theft Auto V in all its expanded glory on the new consoles? Then again, there are some action/adventure aficionados who are always partial to Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition, which was indeed the best version of Lara's successful reboot.
Old-school role-playing fanatics will immediately point to Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster; a production that allowed us to revisit the glory days of JRPGs with a beautiful high-def update. And even though it isn't really a remaster, the Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition on PlayStation 4 was indeed an upgraded version of a 2013 title. So, which one gets your vote? Or is there one we didn't mention that you especially like?
