So I was reading the news about a Dead Space remake and much like the rumored The Last of Us remake before it, my initial reaction was: "This game isn't old enough to get a remake!". To me PS3/360 games still look and play fine today. Maybe it's because I've never been that much of a graphics whore but I don't see the appeal in remakes of 10-12 year old games.
On the other hand, I thoroughly enjoyed the Resident Evil 2 and Final Fantasy VII remakes and never doubted their relevance. From reference the gap between these games and their remakes was 21 and 23 years respectively, so it seems that for me 20 years is sort of a sweet spot to consider remakes "worth it".
What's your idea of the perfect gap between original and remake?
