I don't think this hate was ever a real thing. Because why shouldn't you replay a great game on your most modern device. Well, there is certainly an argument against remasters too soon. But if you would've to keep a 15 year old device and an TV that device can connect to to replay a great game, this surely becomes ridiculous. If last years game got remastered, OK, I can pass. But still it doesn't hurt me either.
I can understand both, why a game get remastered a year later for a new platform (it certainly could have been released as crossgen which is quite normal) and people not being interested in the remaster as they already played the game.
And myself I like remasters of 10 year or older games. I love good graphics, and If a game I loved can be played in a prettier form I get happy.
Understand your point of hate never being a real thing, it certainly could have been just the regular console war at the start of a gen.
