That's cool. I like the series.
Same here. Matter of fact, the only ones I can think of off the top of my head would beI can think of very few games deserving and in need of a remake than The Witcher. Can't wait.
To be honest it has nothing to do with the date, the combat in TW1 was fundamentally crap even for its time.The game is quite dated, especially the combat. This is gonna take them a while. I hope they manage to keep the same atmosphere as the original which was quite unique.
Apologies for quoting myself here, but it seems time to edit the original post is limited. I wanted to also add the Drakengard games to this list.Same here. Matter of fact, the only ones I can think of off the top of my head would be
first three Fatal Frame games
Skies of Arcadia legends
Onimusha 2 and 3
Fire Emblem Path of Radiance and Radiant Dawn
The type of game that needs it. Old and its gameplay is totally archaic. Hell it didn’t play well when it came out.
While I'm generally tired of remakes...this one sort of makes sense.
Not only are the visuals and gameplay of the first Witcher very dated, but it also never came to consoles so there's probably a ton of people who got into the franchise with TW3 and never played the first one.
They are making a new Witcher, and a new Cyberpunk and a new IP.
kubricks lol...no it doesn't. I literally can play Witcher 1 right now on PC with no issues. Its perfectly fine, good enough, serviceable thus...doesn't need a remake it "holds up" so doesn't need a remake, nothing new even happened to gaming from that gen to now, zero, holy shit they just put out a rema....enhanced edition, so this is a a remake of a remake? woooooow PS360PC era games shouldn't be remade, they are good enough...did that do anything for you? lol
I don't understand what you are on about to be honest.
A lot of people I know start the series at TW3, then go back to play TW2 which they enjoy somewhat. TW1 has quite a big gap in terms of control and graphic in comparison to the other two games. It runs fine on the PC, it is good enough, it is serviceable, and it doesn't mean it cannot be modernize a little for these late comers.
Remaking this makes a lot more sense than say, TLOU.
This. Seems no lessons were learned.
