2014 was the year of the Remasters, there is no doubt about it. We’ve seen more HD remakes and ports from older consoles to the new gen then we’ve have at any point and time before. So it is only fair to give recognition to those games that made us double dip, if it was a graphical update, new features or just included all the DLC.
AND THE NOMINEES ARE…
THE LAST OF US REMASTERED – NAUGHTY DOG
GRAND THEFT AUTO V (PS4, XBOX ONE) – ROCKSTAR GAMES
FINAL FANTASY X/X2 – SQUARE ENIX
KINGDOM HEARTS 2.5 HD – SQUARE ENIX
BAYONETTA – PLATINUM GAMES
AND THE WINNER IS
GRAND THEFT AUTO V
Grand Theft Auto V was already a great game that anyone would pay to play again, however Rockstar went the extra mile by giving us a HUGE visual upgrade, more music, more players for GTA Online and of course, a first Person View Mode which drastically changed how the game was played. Companies need to take note, Rockstar has set the bar for Ports/HD Remakes.
