At first it was a cool concept, but now its started to get out of hand. The fact that now people are buzzing over a Shemue collection worries me just a little about the future of this hot trend right now, in that:
1. Why are they releasing “collections” of games that only have 1 sequel? Z.o.e. “collection” but theres only 2 ZOE games, with ZOE2 being literally the only reason for purchasing the collection to begin with.
**2. Why are they releasing “collections” without including the entire collection? **ie: Metal Gear Solid Collection: minus Metal Gear Solid original OR Twin Snakes re-make. Now I can deal with the fact that the Resident Evil HD collection only includes Code Veronica and RE4 since the first 3 are already available in the playstation network, so what about Resident Evil 0? What about Resident Evil 1 remake?
I’ve heard people attempt to claim that Twin Snakes was a collaboration between Nintendo and Konami and has a lot of Nintendo easter eggs within the game…so edit them the fuck out? I dont get it.
3. “HD” versions of PS1 and PS2 games dont look THAT much better to put so much emphasis on a “HD” re-release.
I mean part of it is me still having a PS2/Dreamcast with these games, and I can understand how some people might want them all “together” on one system but at the same time convenience shouldnt usher in a new gaming trend that might exhaust what good games we have making a parody of the already existing versions of Metal Gear Solid 2 because the HD Collection has MGS2 in…HD!
I think its a cool idea, but I looks like something developers might try to take and run with if consumers dont keep their eyes peeled.
