Today I am going to be talking about the Classics; specifically them being remade.
There has been many debates over YouTube videos, Tomb Raider forums, Deviant Art comments about whether these should be remade or not. In my opinion, it would be great to have a revival of the Classics and make more people notice them, however I really don't want Tomb Raider to become a mainstream game, especially the Classics which I hold so dearest to my heart!
Earlier this year a popular YouTube video by a channel called Unlockstar posted a video with lots of renders of the Classics but with the graphics and look of today's Tomb Raider games. If you're a follower of my tumblr you'll know I've been posting a LOT of pictures of some great renders I found. ;)
Since then the channel has made 3 of these videos showcasing lots of the different renders and they look stunning! My favorite is set as my desktop background!
Since Crystal Dynamics has already made a remake of TR1, the renders consist of TR2 to AOD. I highly recomend checking some of these videos out, by the way!
Recently I have been checking Facebook around the Tomb Raider community and found an event created by a Tomb Raider fan to get Crystal Dynamics to remaster the Classics in HD and provide DLC (downloadable content) for them. This would include Unfinished Business, Golden Mask and Lost Artifact (Tomb Raider gold games) to be available for download, also in HD. At the moment there are 154 people "going" including myself. Link to event here.
So what are your thoughts on this? Should they be remade?
See you soon Crofts and Merry Christmas! :D
