Overwhelmingly, the InFamous game will most likely be Sony’s next remake project, according to some sources.
With The Last of Us Part 1 receiving critical acclaim, Sony’s first party is once again on the minds of many. God of War: Ragnarok is not far off, but as remakes are the theme of the month thanks to the revival of Naughty Dog for its 2013 project, rumors are swirling that the Sony-owned game will is the next game. Horizon Zero Dawn is rated as a changed favorite, but the reality is that there are plenty of other PlayStation titles that deserve much more, with InFamous at the top of this list.
Horizon Zero Dawn is simply too new to consider the possibility of a remake, especially since The Last of Us Part 1 has been criticized for its existence with a rich history of releases. Naughty Dog’s other quality practices. Horizon’s story isn’t even over yet, as Forbidden West is the next chapter of something bigger, and as the PlayStation 3 generation is rapidly becoming a classic, there is growing demand for certain games. Its back to modern hardware.
And 2009’s InFamous alone has not been re-released since its debut. The superhero theme with superpowers is still very hot, thanks to this, which makes Sony feel it is probably the best choice if they are looking to remake another classic game of the first version.
Released a few months ago Batman: Arkham Asylum, InFamous is the first truly great open-world superhero game, continuing the story that would have been unlikely if Cole MacGrath, after activating the Ray Sphere, granted him the ability. Super.
Brand new story from developer Sucker Punch, and appreciated for its fighting gameplay, exciting setting, and captivating characters. Creating a compelling protagonist to side with comic book veterans is already a feat, but InFamous does so much more, and the two sequels will continue to highlight the fluidity while focus on other cities and stories.
While it was released just over 13 years ago, it’s hard to justify a return today, especially as superhero and open-world games are in much larger numbers in 2022. , it’s an experience not worth losing and remaking it will be the main reason for Sony to once again enter the budding world of superhero games and bring something different to the world. Insomniac’s Spider-Man series.
InFamous could be the perfect cure for those struggling with the overwhelming availability of Marvel/DC properties, and with Sucker Punch seemingly entirely dedicated to Ghost of Tsushima, there’s little the possibility that the remake of the first game will disrupt the sales of a potential new entry in the franchise.
For a remake project, the games will have to change many things that were there before. Maybe it’s because the gameplay is too outdated, the same block image or the inconsistent storytelling. Horizon Zero Dawn doesn’t suffer from these things, but InFamous is too old and has no version other than the one that debuted on PS3. InFamous being made nicer, more fun to play, and accessible will allow the game to attract a whole new audience, which is an essential reason remakes will be considered by Sony.
As The Last of Us Part 1 demonstrated, there’s no set time for how long a game has to come out before it justifies a full-scale remake, but the magic of an remake will stand out much more than an older title. Resident Evil 2 Remake is better received and more enjoyable than The Last of Us Part 1 because it drags an old, now ugly and almost unplayable game to modern times, implementing the visuals and mechanism similar to what is expected today. An InFamous remake would have the same effect, and Sony would be wise to utilize its potential well.
