Biggest Upcoming Video Games In 2017 That You Should Be Worried About
As far as the gaming world has been concerned, 2017 has gotten off to a cracking start. Between the under-the-radar Nioh and the surprisingly excellent Resident Evil 7, players have had plenty of juicy gaming experiences to sink their teeth into so far in 2017 – and we’re only two months in.
Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy
Crash Bandicoot is back, baby. And not the crappy, Activision-led Crash of the mid-late 2000s, but the prime-time PS1 Bandicoot that you spent most of your childhood with.
Completely remastering the first three Naughty Dog classics, the upcoming N. Sane trilogy seems to be everything fans have been craving for years. But even though it ticks all the right boxes on paper, we have to remember that although Sony is heavily involved with this remake, it’s still Activision that’s in charge.
The same Activision that completely killed the remaster of fan-favourite Tony Hawk Pro Skater.
And with vague promises of added gameplay features, there’s also the worry that the publisher won’t be able to leave well enough alone and resist putting their own flourishes on these classic games, much in the same way they added micro-transactions to the remaster of Call of Duty 4.
We hope that Sony will be able to steer them in the right direction of preserving the original games as much as possible, but looking at Activision’s track record when it comes to remasters, I’d be bracing for the worst.
