I've been wanting to make this thread for a while, but I am always charmed by a reenactment of a beloved game. Other than the Pokemon remakes, here are some that I like:
Metroid Zero Mission: Though it doesn't feel as substantial as Fusion, remaking the classic Metroid with more atmosphere, bosses, and even another storyline made this a great GBA remake.
MGS3D: I'm not saying that this is better than an HD Metal Gear Solid 3, but the timing was impeccable for me. After my PS2 died a mysterious death, I long wanted to play the game again. I was thrilled that they made it on a Nintendo system. IMO, they got rid of the feature I thought bogged the game down the most, the menu system. Now, it's simple touchscreen.
And of course, Kirby's Dreamland in Super Star (Ultra) is more satisfying with copy abilities.
Far from my whole list, but what are some you like or dislike? What do think about remakes?
