You're ignoring the fact that the game plays differently from the original, nevermind the fact a lot of the game's tone, dialogue, and characters have been changed. It's a remake that has been reimagined as an RE4-like.

You guys put WAY too much weight on the story.


How a game plays has nothing to do with whether it's a remake or a re-imagining. Hell even REmake didn't play exactly like the original.

Also, REmake's tone and dialogue was also changed. Still a remake.

Gee maybe because story is the main thing that separates remake from re-imagining?

So what? So you're wrong. You literally said that it was the exact same story. I proved that it was not. I said nothing else on the matter. If you cannot admit that what you stated was wrong, there is no reason for myself or anyone else to give any statement you make credibility. In fact, you are losing credibility with all users when you post things like this.

As has been stated on this board many times before - we the fans do not determine what is or isn't for this series. We must go by what we hear/see from the developers. I provided to you proof of what a producer literally said about his opinion on the usage of those words with regards to his own game. Your opinion, regardless of any of the actual meaning of the terms, means less than his with regards to his own game.


The overall plot of the game is exactly the same as it was in the original. Subtle alterations or new things being introduced do not change that. So again, so f***ing what? Nothing major was changed.

I don't give a single f*** what some producer said. Using the term to describe something that doesn't fit the term is using the term wrong. Being a video game producer doesn't mean you can call an apple an orange and not be called a dullard.

It is clearly a reimagining because it’s still a remake. It doesn’t have to be one or the other for some arbitrary reason.


Uhh no, it actually is one or the other because both words describe entirely different things.

You are correct.

Remaster- improves existing graphics and sounds.

Remake- recreating the game from scratch.

The Crash trilogy is a remake as it has new assets.


Ocarina of Time 3D, Majora's Mask 3D, Snake Eater 3D, all have new assets, still not considered remakes.

Like you said, a remake is recreating the game from scratch. What you don't get is that it means the entire game, not just parts of it.

Crash and Spyro only had their graphics and voice acting redone, everything else is largely the same as the PS1 originals. Which makes them remasters, they just had more effort put into them than others.

You mean the gameplay, level design and such? Remakes aren’t required to change those you know? In order to be a remake, the only thing it has to do is recreate the game from scratch.

It's not a remake for the millionth time they have said so themselves


If it's not a remake what is it? Certainly not a new entry in the series. Are you a flat earther per chance?


It's a reimagining. It's got some elements from 1.5 in it as well. The original remake wasn't a complete copy of the original either.

Either way, we've been waiting for this for a long time. Since the original remake fans have asked for this, I'll definitely be looking forward to this come the 25th.


It would be a folly to copy only the original with only minor changes. (See Secret of Mana)

Yes, there will be reimaginings and the introduction of fresh assets, however it's plain to see that not only has the game been remade from the ground up, but it follows the source material very closely in an effort to remake, retell and from a business standpoint, repeat the success of the og RE2.

But to ignore the fact that it's a remake and just simply a reimagining is ignorant, and for what?

Thank you for amending your original statement so it doesn't come off as completely untrue. I appreciate you correcting yourself.

The producer literally gets to decide how he wants to describe the game, and he did. Anyone who wants to quote him or use his terminology with reference to his game is free to do so.
If you have knowledge and you aren't using it to educate your fellow person, what are you using it for?

...no s***? By that logic you should admit then that Crash and Spyro's redone trilogies are remakes.

That's not what I said. I said USING THE ORIGINAL MATERIAL. Crash and Spyro's graphics were remade. Hence they are remakes.

If they remade the graphics then they are remakes.

THAT IS NOT A f***ING REMASTER!


Why would I admit something that's not true?

And outside of the graphics, voice dialogue and music, everything else is the original material. Hence they are not remakes.

Lol nope, a remake is far more than just redone graphics.

Yeah they are, they're just remasters that had a lot more effort put into them.

No reason continuing to argue your point now, everyone around here that knows you well enough knows that you only get this pissed off when you're wrong.

Lol nope.

OoT and MM 3D are remasters. FF7 and RE2 are remakes.

If you don't understand the difference between a remake and a re-imagining, keep your mouth shut.

...I didn't correct myself, it's the same goddamn thing I said before.

The producer can describe it how they want, people that want to quote him can quote him how they want. But it doesn't mean s*** when they're wrong.

There's no such thing.

Yes it does, they're two completely different things. You cannot be a re-imagining and a remake.

The first remake was in 2002, this is the 2nd remake for the series in 2019. How exactly is it being overdone?
