5 PlayStation 3 Games We Want Remastered in 2023



The PlayStation 3, as a console, gave players a plethora of games to enjoy during its life cycle. This is wonderful and makes us fondly look back on past games. However, among these games, there are many titles that would greatly benefit from being remastered. Whether it was due to technical limitations or other factors, remastering these games would be a great decision. So join us as we go through our list of the 5 PlayStation 3 Games We Want Remastered in 2023.

5. Tales of Xillia

Starting off our list of the PlayStation 3 games we want to see remastered, we have Tales of Xillia. This popular title within the critically-acclaimed Tales series is one that has been slept on for entirely too long. However, the gameplay and presentation of the game are excellent and feature many unforgettable characters. It then comes as no surprise that there has been a pretty sizable outcry to have this game remastered in 2023. This action RPG does a great job of immersing the player in its world through storytelling and character interactions.

The outer sphere of media surrounding this game is also impressive, as there have been manga adaptations as well as many strategy guides. However, this only speaks to the game's depth, which has stood the test of time. Remastering this title would only serve to solidify how great of a game Tales of Xillia is. To close, this is a game that perhaps didn't receive as much attention at launch, but if it could be remastered, then it would have another shot of captivating a much wider audience as a whole.

4. Red Dead Redemption

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      The tale of John Marston is one that has stood the test of time. For many fans of Red Dead Redemption, the gameplay and world created in this title still manage to hold up to this day. However, the game's graphical fidelity does leave quite a bit to be desired. While the developers at Rockstar did the most with what they had at the time, the amount of content that could be added to the remaster would go a long way to keep environments from feeling barren. This would be welcomed, as one of the drawbacks of the game in its current state is the fact that environments can feel a bit sparse. Especially when compared to modern titles.

Players will be able to go throughout the game's open world and experience it in a whole new way. The benefit of having this game remastered instead of remade is that it would definitely be less time and resource intensive. Seeing as its sequel Red Dead Redemption 2 was such a commercial and critical success. In closing, Red Dead Redemption is one of the PlayStation 3 games most deserving to be remastered.

 3. Killzone 2

The Killzone franchise, for some, epitomizes the PlayStation 3-era shooter. So it should come as no surprise that a remaster of Killzone 2 would be welcomed with open arms. Developed by Guerilla Games, the developers behind such modern hits as the Horizon series, this game simply looked gorgeous at the time. Added to his, the FPS mechanics of the game were extremely solid for their time and could only benefit from a touch-up. Battling with the Helghast would definitely feel better with a fresh coat of paint. This would allow the developers to do more with the character design in the game as well.

While the original title may have suffered some technical issues, these could be alleviated in the remaster. This would allow players to see this game in a whole new light. This could definitely lead more players to appreciate the first entry in the Killzone franchise. The game could even have a robust multiplayer element if the developers wished it to. This would go a long way in revitalizing the PlayStation multiplayer scene. In conclusion, Killzone 2 would be one of the best PlayStation 3 games to see remastered.

2. Eternal Sonata

Switching things up considerably on our list of PlayStation 3 games that deserve to be remastered, we have Eternal SonataEternal Sonata has the unfortunate current state of being trapped on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. This makes it really hard for players in the current generation to experience this timeless classic. However, players will be able to explore the world as they move throughout this musically-inspired JRPG. For those unaware, Eternal Sonata is built around various Chopin works, giving the game a distinct identity. This identity would also stand out in today's gaming market.

With music as a heavy focus of the game, it is also great to see that original pieces were created for the game as well. The game is full of lush landscapes, which would be rendered wonderfully within an HD remastered version of the game. Additionally, a ton of the game's characters have their names pulled from various musical terms, making this title great for any music enthusiast. While the story may be linear, the way it is woven in with the music makes this game one you must experience for yourself.

1. InFAMOUS5 Character Redesigns That Ruined Good Video Games

For our last entry of PlayStation 3 games that deserve to be remastered, we have InFAMOUS. This game was a PlayStation 3 launch title that really set the tone for the console. And while it had many different effects, such as particle effects and extraordinary visuals for the time, a remaster would make the explosions in the game sing. This action-adventure title follows Cole McGrath, someone who is gifted with electricity-themed superpowers. This is great for the player as they are able to use the world as somewhat of a sandbox as they make their way through the game.

Remastering this title would give a greater sense of power to the player through the updated visuals and mechanics. Players will be able to also benefit from the enhanced visuals in terms of the environments around them. For example, city blocks that could have once run together can be given a new sense of polish, making them unique from one another. So if you are a fan of the InFAMOUS franchise, like us, then we hope you would agree when we say this title definitely deserves a remaster.
