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

Nostalgia - Really liked the game in the past, no longer have it, wanted to play it again.
No Backwards Compatibility - didn't finish and can't play original software, it's the only way.
New Feature - The new version has extra levels or a game mode the original lacked, extra value.
Better Graphics - old game looks horrible on HDTV, new version has significant visual enhancements
Trophy Support - I just wanted the trophies.

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.
