The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...

Games That Should Be Remastered

It was the great Walt Disney who first informed us in 1961 that despite all the science we had accumulated to that point, the world was, in fact, a carousel of color. Fast forward fifty-three years and when it comes to gaming, for better or for worse, graphics are king. With all the leaps and bounds in gameplay, storytelling, and interactivity that have been made, it's still dem grafix that first catch our eye.

At risk of sounding old and crotchety, back in my day, we didn't have the luxury of that there AECH DEE television moving picture boxes. No. We had a grand total of eight bits to work with. Sixteen at the very most. And we liked it! We loved it! Boy howdy, nothing more real than those Mode 7 turns in Pilotwings. You didn't hear us complaining.

Sometimes, however, our classics can use a good scrubbing up and polishing, and with titles like DuckTales Remastered, Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse, and The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD turning nice sales numbers, 2013 showed us that the trend of remastering can be fun and lucrative. With Final Fantasy X | X-2 HD Remaster and Kingdom Hearts HD II.5 ReMIX, 2014 shows no signs of that trend slowing.

As a grumpy old man in the gaming world, at least let me suggest some games that are worthy of a little spit-shine and re-release. Then get off my lawn.
