    I mostly buy them for the nostalgia. Sometimes it's because I never got around to it.

    You know what this is Wipeout HD's fault it just dawned on me they were quite possibly the first successful HD remake of a game way back in 08. Am I right?
    It depends, HD remakes can be anything that displays in high resolution. Most of the games arent getting new textures unless they're being remade from like the PSone days. Generally they'll rescan the old textures in higher res and every so often they might rebuild a character from scratch with new textures (I think that's the case with FF10, 10-2 and KH1.5HD) but they're all still technically HD. Every so often you'll see a bad interpretation of the process like apparently Hitman collection and Devil May Cry Collection and other times you'll get upgrades that barely seem to register like the ZOE HD collection.

    It's certainly one part nostalgia; the other reasons are a little more opaque. I guess it's an amalgamation of better graphics, features, trophies, accessibility - they all combine to give you more of a particular game you cherish. Metal Gear Solid's a prime example: meticulous transfer and genuinely added to the experience some eight years later. Final Fantasy X/X-2 looks to be another such example that I personally can't wait for, given my affinity for the former. The HD collections also give newer fans a better transition into a classic rather than having to boot up an old system and play a game that may or may not have aged well.
