RE4 Remake is fundamentally more different than RE4 than TOTK/SM2 are to their predecessors, though.
It's not like it's just a remaster or a re-release.
Seems like a stretch. RE 4 remake is amazing but other than a few sections being changed it is the same game. At least 75% of the game is a better looking version of the original. Tears had a whole new build system. It had new shrines, temples, entire sky area and added the depths.
Don't get me wrong I went through RE4 remake twice, superb game. But I didn't find it that changed from the original.
Yeah, that game's GREAT but to claim it's MORE unique than spider-Man 2 and Tears of the kingdom? hah, nope. That's just silly.
Spider-Man 2 has tonnes of new gameplay mechanics, a whole new segment of the map, and a new and great story.
Tears of the Kingdom retools so much of its map while adding two more maps and doing 150+ new shrines with over a hundred new lightroots and 1000 new korok seeds all on top of completely new gameplay systems.
Reusing assets (like a map or animation) does not make the game the same. This is an argument that needs to die.
