Re: Remastering games, is it really worth it?

in Milliways
My son has a pretty up to date rig and plays various "modern" games and while on a side-by-side comparison of course the newer games look better but not mind blowingly better like we saw in the jump between 1999 and 2009. (which is when I stopped /paused gaming) . Just like the 1:1 "live action" …
