The industry behind gaming is always coming up with new and impressive ways to impress players, but a lot of the time, gamers enjoy looking toward the classics. The legendary titles of the past have inspired creators and players alike, and seeing them reborn with modern visuals and sound is a treat.
Here are 10 Xbox games we would love to see receive the remaster treatment.
Mech games have always been fan favorites, but there hasn't been anything quite like MechAssault since its debut on the original Xbox. It offered an unparalleled sense of power that other titles only wished they could achieve, and to this day, many say it's one of the best Xbox games ever made.
When you ask the question, "What is the best dogfighting game ever?," a common answer will be Crimson Skies for the original Xbox. Between the sound mechanics, engaging story, and likable characters, Crimson Skies rightfully holds a special place in the hearts of many.
It seems wrong that the first two Halo games got remastered, but Halo 3 did not. The title's impact on Xbox Live cannot be overstated. Dominating the online landscape for over three years, Halo 3 was one of Xbox's strongest console sellers ever. Maybe one day a remastered version will be added to the Master Chief Collection.
Halo 3: ODST
Considering Halo 3: ODST uses a huge amount of assets from Halo 3, it would be possible for it to be remastered alongside its big brother. Featuring a moody atmosphere and a gripping tale of how an ODST squad fights for its life during a Covenant invasion, seeing Halo 3: ODST powered by modern tech would be amazing.
Credited as the game that brought the Fallout role-playing series to the third dimension, Fallout 3 is undeniably a classic. Between the solid gameplay, great writing and interesting lore, Fallout 3 offers seemingly endless fun.
Fallout: New Vegas
With Fallout: New Vegas, Obsidian Entertainment took Bethesda's success with Fallout 3 and expanded on it, creating an open world experience that many consider the best ever made. A remaster would also help iron out the issues with the title's notorious bugs.
Ninja Gaiden Black
Featuring a steep learning curve, challenging enemies and a focus on melee fighting, Ninja Gaiden Black was in many ways the Dark Souls of yesteryear. In today's market where titles like these flourish, it would be great to see Ninja Gaiden Black make a return in glorious new graphics.
Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic
Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic is often regarded as one of the best RPGs of all time, and with good reason; between the clever turn-based fighting, incredible writing, and beautiful music and art direction, it ticks all the boxes.
Destroy All Humans!
Getting to play the role of a one-alien army trying to slaughter all of humanity in Destroy All Humans! is an unforgettable experience. Whether you're leveling entire cities with your UFO or zapping individual people with an electric rifle, the game is loads of fun ... and I'd love to do it again with new graphics and audio.
Jet Set Radio Future
Skating games can often feel boring, but Jet Set Radio Future for the original Xbox was a fan-favorite experience thanks to the stylized art direction, excellent music, and wacky gameplay mechanics.
