Top 10 Video Game Remakes


The Top Ten

1 Metroid: Zero Mission
2 The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D

Best remake ever! Simple, it's the remake of the best video game ever

3 Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary
4 Kirby Super Star Ultra
5 Chrono Trigger
6 Another Metroid 2 Remake

Turned easily one of the worst games in the series into easily one of the best by far, enough said. - xandermartin98

7 Metroid: Super Zero Mission

MSZM is incredibly underrated. With help from Nintendo, this could actually be the best full-fledged Metroidvania game of all time, believe it or not. The platforming is amazing, the level design is absolute genius, and if its many inherent flaws were ironed over then it would become a virtually flawless masterpiece of a game.

8 The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition
9 Phantasy Star Online, Episode I & II
10 Super Metroid

The Contenders

11 Donkey Kong Country Returns
12 Resident Evil

Expanding the mansion, updating the visuals, adding a few new but even creepier enemies, linking the game to the sequels a bit more, changing the dialogue, getting better voice actors, I could go on forever about this game and everything it did better than the original game.
