    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.

    I always keep my past games so when I am playing a HD version remastered,i can play it anytime that I want in my old console too.But because I am playing ps3 mostly,I like to remind this game again with a sweet nostalgia.

    I buy most HD remakes. I have my reasons. I would have said nostalgia but i hold onto all my old games and can play the older versions so i said graphics. A great game made even better? I'm there, and i do enjoy going for the trophies so that's a plus.

    Got 2 reasons;

    1. I didn't play those games in the past.
    2. I loved the game(s) so much that I really want to replay it and if it's available as a remake, why not?

    A combination of nostalgia and trophy support. Mostly the latter.

    If I ever did, it would be because I never got to play the game in first place and it would look good.

    Mainly to play what I haven't played. But for GTA5 and TLOU - it was to have it on the platform I am currently playing on.
