There is a good chance that you enjoy the nostalgia of playing old video games. This is great since you’ll return to your childhood and enjoy your favorite games once again. At this point, you may believe that those old games are gone for good. This couldn’t be further from the truth since they could return. Technology has evolved significantly and this has brought new life to older video games. Whether you’re a fan of role-playing games, first-person shooters, or strategy games, you can rest assured knowing that your old games are coming back and they’re going to be better than they were many years ago.

So, how is modern technology adding life to older video games? Within this guide, you’ll find the answer to this question and you’ll learn about the technology that is fueling the trend.

New Graphics

Many older video games were very popular when they were first released. Video game developers understand this and they’re going to benefit from releasing these games once again. They know that there is a customer base for these games. They were sold millions of times previously. Today, they can be sold again. People are eager to play their favorite games but they want those games to be enhanced. This is why the developers are turning to graphics. They can enhance the graphics and rerelease the game. This ensures that the game is going to be greatly improved. Simultaneously, it makes the experience better for the consumer.

You can play baccarat online, you should start playing today. Or, you can step back in time and begin playing older games with revamped graphics.

Multiplayer

In the past, some games have multiplayer modes. However, those modes were limited. Players were forced to play alongside their friends. The Internet wasn’t reliable enough at the time. Now, it is better than ever before. Consumers can play their favorite video games online with others. Older games did not offer this type of convenience. Well, you should know that this is starting to change. Some video game developers are taking older games and enhancing the multiplayer experience. This ensures that the games are going to be great for the consumers. Even if you played these games before, you can guarantee that this is going to make them fresh and exciting again.

New Ways To Play

While you’re at it, you should understand the developers have discovered new ways for consumers to play their favorite games. You likely enjoyed the NES controller. However, you have to admit that it is limited. The PlayStation controller was better but there were limitations too. Today, developers allow players to enjoy their games using other methods. For instance, you can play your games with your voice, body, and fingertips. Ultimately, the options are wider than ever before and this makes things more exciting. If you want to enjoy older games in a new way, you’ll want to consider making the switch to these upgraded games. Doing so will ensure that you’re able to remain entertained from start to finished.

Resident Evil 2 remake is a great example of bringing back an old game and making it fresh. It went much further than just updated graphics while keeping the vibe of the original.

Xenotaris

Resident Evil 2 remake is not an old game that is a damn remake of an old game, poor example.

Resident Evil 2 Original was alot better than its shallow remake. Remake's Boss fights and level designs were not unique between the characters and scenarios. Take the William Birkin boss battles they were the exact same regardless if you played as Claire or Leon and regardless of scenario.

The William Birkin boss battles in the original were unique. as Claire your first battle with Birkin was underground underneath the Chief's office. As Leon your first boss battle with Birkin was on the underground train. Then there's the different Birkin battles between Scenario A and B, RE 2 Remake failed to do this so no Resident Evil 2 Remake IS NOT A GOOD EXAMPLE OF THIS.

Give me a digital release pf Resident Evil 2 (1997) over Resident Evil 2 (2019)

I think another way is through mods, like with all the mods for Jurassic Park Trespasser, Jurassic Park Operation Genesis, Zoo Tycoon 2, etc. This way, the fans themselves keep it alive. I mean, why do you think so many people still play JPOG after so many years?

 Damn edit button is not working, sorry double posting  head of time.

The Lickers weren't as scary in remake then they were in the original, also whats with the removal of the Giant Moth, Ivys, Giant Spiders, and the enhanced lickers?

I prefer the breather licker over the roaring lickers (which reminds me of those horrible RE movies)

The Super Tyrant just comes out of the blue in Remake, while in the original via scenario B there was a build up to how the Tyrant becomes the Super Tyrant.

Now sure the overall narrative story was improved in RE 2 remake  but that still doesn't excuse the reason why the level designs and boss fights were severely lacking.

Maybe nostalgia gets in the way. I downloaded RE2 a few years ago and it was horrifically pixilated with terrible voice acting. The tank controllers were effective back then but seem tedious now.  It was the bomb in the '90s but the straight port just didn't age or play well.  

Xenotaris

Oct-30-2019 11:16 AM

Yes but the REMAKE is not an old game though. Capcom or peripherally a different company needs to do a resolution uplift. Also I like the tank controls and I didn't mind the voice acting in the original. 

But to say RE 2 remake is preserving an old game is false, the remake is replacing the original all together. Yes you made some good points about the controls and pixilation but terrible level design and reused boss battles is what ruins RE 2 remake for me and its is why i still prefer the original RE 2.

Xenotaris

Oct-30-2019 11:17 AM

I'm sorry reused level design

dk

Oct-30-2019 11:22 AM

Terrible level design cuts both ways. The original had a lot of back tracking which padded game length- many games do/did that.

That said, the tank controllers were at their best when the quick 180 degree turn was in RE 3 and CVX imo. I ACTUALLY prefer the N64 mode where you move wherever yo point- no rotating.

If someone wants to play the original, they can do so. Doing a straight up remake with only updated graphics seems like a lazy cash grab imo.

I think you may have missed what I meant- Remake was just that: remaking the original.

Xenotaris

Oct-30-2019 12:22 PM

Yeah but the original was still better in regards of having unique boss fights depending on character and scenario. The remake was lazy, you fought the same boss fights regardless of character and regardless of scenario!

Xenotaris

Oct-30-2019 12:24 PM

The two scenarios in Remake lacked the uniqueness of the original's Scenario A and B.

dk

Oct-30-2019 12:33 PM

I suppose will agree to disagree. I think the remake might entice the new generation to check out the original. I played the crap out of RE 2 and enjoyed it. The one thing that I miss is the static environments and POV changes- you would hear a ceature but couldn't see it until you walked forward and the POV changed. That was a true tension builder. I have very fond memories of RE 2 but sometimes revisiting things based on nostalgia isn't a good thing. 

Generally, revamping older games can be good, but it also reminds me of movies. There seems to be a lack of originality so we end up with remakes and reboots that can dilute the original.

Oct-30-2019 12:56 PM

I agree about the original A and B scenarios- Each was different enough with either character that we basically had 4 games in one. Some things you did could affect other scenarios so there was a lot of replay value. No argument there Xenotaris .

RE 2 remake did retain the spirit of the classic Resident Evil which was awesome but yeah my main gripe with remake was the scenarios and their boss fights

Xenotaris

Oct-30-2019 9:10 PM

Anyways Half-Life 1 is still alive and well thanks to a healthy modding community

dk

Oct-30-2019 9:14 PM

There was a HL1 remake on Steam that was awesome (I only watched) but that team never did the Zen levels from what I understand?

Xenotaris

Oct-30-2019 11:46 PM

Oh yeah I own the Black Mesa, great mod and retail game. 

But yeah Half-Life 1 mods were the best: They Hunger Trilogy, USS Darkstar, Cthulhu: An Unspeakable Horror Mod, Wanted!, Absolute Redemption, Afraid of Monsters, Master Sword, and Action Half-Life.

Also Gunman Chronicles which was a half-life mod turned into a licensed retail game.

There is a Portal Prequel out there too. I watched a let's play and it is very cool but the designer made it unforgivably difficult.

Xenotaris

Oct-31-2019 2:17 AM

Yeah I think I played that one
