Why don't gaming companies remake games that really need it?

We know they remake games all the time. However they don't remake classic too often for some reason. I really thought about this after someone linked me a video of some Jet Force Gemini from the 64 days. It would be amazing to remake that game even though that probably won't make it to a MS console.

A game that would probably make it to the PS4 and X1 would be a Powerstone remake from the Dreamcast. That game was a revolutionary fighting game that blew me away. It was amazing and it would be an Insta buy for me.

Another thing. Why in the world have they not remade Final Fantasy VII yet? They remake FF games all the time. A good example is FFIV that was remade on the GBA and DS if I remember correctly. I'm not a huge FF fan. I never actually played FFVII over 5 minutes before. I had a 64 back then and never owned that game before even with my PS2. I wasn't into FF at all back then. I would love to play FFVII on the X1 with upgraded graphics and such.

Those were just a few examples of remakes that would be amazing. I don't get why they don't do this even more. Nintendo did great remaking Zelda OoT and Star Fox 64 for the 3DS. Even the Halo MCC should sale very well even though it's not that old. Hell I bet a Call of a Duty Modern Warfare Complete with all three games combined into a singular game would set records.

So why don't they do this more? Especially yo classic games that are a decade old.

In SE's case, it's FFVII remake.

because that's why... people are dumb enough to buy that crap...

on the plus side though I can't freaking wait for the Resident Evil GameCube Remaster capcom is working on... after that I really hope they give RE2 a REmake treatment.

You would have to enlighten me on that one. I didn't even know The Last of Us was a remake...

I didn't know the game existed before. What was it originally on?

PS3 towards the end of its life. This is why Naugjty Dog remade it and the large number of Xbox converts now get to experience it. One of the greatest games from a story stand point ever made deserved a remake.

What didn't deserve a remake was Tomb Raider and Sleeping Dogs. That's my opinion though and you should only take it as such. I played Last of Us on PS3 and enjoyed it even more in 60 FPS on PS4. I also can't wait for Halo MCC.
