What game started the HD collection/remake craze?

Was it Banjo and Kazooie? If so I need to thank them.. or was it Perfect Dark?

Can't remember what the VERY first game was that did this was but I love it..God of War Origins (Chains of Olympus & Ghost of Sparta), Splinter Cell Classic Collection HD (1,2,and 3) HD, The ICO and Shadow of the Colossus Collection HD, Resident Evil Code Veronica HD, Silent Hill (2 and 3) Collection HD, Oddworld Strangers Wrath HD...

gaming heaven - tried and true games with lots of polish - win/win

for me it was the gamecube RE make of the original resident evil. even though it wasnt technically in HD. thats the first time i can remember hearing about an older game being remade/enhanced.

Probably RE4 on the Wii. I know they did some innovative stuff with the controls so its not a straight port, but its really considered one of the best games for Wii. And I think a lot of companies look at it as a sign that games in the past can sell on current gen consoles.

The current trend was definitely started by the God of War Collection.

Someone at Sony deciding backwards compatability could be made profitable by denying access to it and instead re-selling games to its users.

1) Take out BC from all your PS3 models.
2) re-release old PS2 games
3) ?????
4) Profit!

i think it was the god of war collection but ubisoft needs to leave the game. They have pushed back the splinter cell trilogy like 5 times.
Why does 2011 a.k.a the best year of gaming ever have to be the year i go to college?

anyone who thinks these are the "same games" as they were are either misinformed or purely ignorant. I am on the Poseidon levels of God of War 1 and the graphics are simply mindblowing; having an HD graphics upgrade to go with HDTV is simply a necessity.. without it the games suffer DRAMATICALLY.

thinking they took out backwards comp simply to remake a handful of titles is beyond paranoid, it's stupid.

I play on a 55" Sony Bravia HDTV, I actually have the fat PS3 that DOES have backwards comp. - there is NO contest to how these older games look after the HD paint job.
