It's funny how Nintendo decided that Wind Waker, of all games, was the title in its back catalogue most deserving of a HD remake. We're talking about a game that has not aged a single day. Why that one? Why not Twilight Princess? Why not choose a game that would benefit most from a bit of spit and polish?
I was talking about HD remakes with Chris Jager, resident Lifehacker journalist. He doesn't really see the point. Me? I've found them a mixed bag. I don't think I've ever finished a HD remake right till the end. Usually I put a few hours in, satiate my curiosity, then move along to something new. Just enough time to remember the game, feel good about having played it, but not let the thing outstay its welcome.
I haven't played Wind Waker HD yet, but I suspect I'll go through the same process again.
What are your experiences with HD remakes? Good, bad, indifferent?
