Gallery of the Day8 New Year's Resolutions for the Gaming Industry in 2016Gallery of the Day - RSS 2.0
Every year, most of us make some sort of New Year's resolution. While it's true that many of them don't last very long, sometimes one sticks (that's how I finally managed to quit smoking a few years back). Since 2016 has just begun, I thought it would be a good time to put forth some suggestions for resolutions the gaming industry should make this year. Sure, most of them are pipe dreams, but if even one comes true, think how happy we'd all be.

Don't go overboard on the remasters
Look, we get it. Video games are expensive, and it's both cheaper and safer to update a property that has existing popularity than it is to crank up a new IP from scratch. Additionally, in the early days of a new console generation, remasters offer a chance to get games on a console, as well as a way to put franchises into the public eye again. But when remasters start to become the featured title in your release schedule, you've gone too far. That said, if you're going to remaster things, I'd be really happy with a Syphon Filter remaster.
