A Common Misuse of Two Words.

Most of the time whenever this topic is brought up, it annoys me that people don't use two of these following words the right way most of the time: Remake and Remaster.
This is often seen when it comes to some video games which are, as the two describe: Remakes and Remasters.


Definition of Remake
To remake something completely from scratch and from the ground up.

Definition of Remaster
Take an existing thing and apply some changes to it, like widescreen support, updated graphics and smoother framerates.


An example of this common misconception is when people say a game like Wind Waker HD is a remake of Wind Waker. It is not; it is a REMASTER - it's exactly the same game, just with widescreen support, an HD lighting system, slightly redone soundtrack and a couple of new/replaced features. It wasn't built from the ground up, which a remake is. An example of a remake are the 3DS versions of Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask, which were built from the ground up and were not updated ports of the N64/GameCube versions.

Here's a list of examples of Remasters and Remakes with the original versions next to them.

Remasters
God of War 3 Remastered - God of War 3
The Last of Us Remastered - The Last of Us
The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD - The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker
Call of Duty Classic - Call of Duty 1
Halo: The Master Chief Collection - Halo 1, 2, 3, 3: ODST & 4

Remakes
Pokémon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire - Pokémon Ruby & Sapphire
Conker: Live & Reloaded - Conker's Bad Fur Day
Super Mario All-Stars - Super Mario Bros. 1, 2, 3 & Lost Levels
Star Fox 64 3D - Star Fox 64/Lylat Wars (PAL region name)
Ducktales: Remastered (when really, it is a remake) - Ducktales

If you manage to read this, I might actually have some hope in humanity.

:bulletyellow:I rarely respond to profile comments. Mostly because I prefer talking in private via a note/PM. If I happen to ignore your note, I probably don't know you or just don't want to talk.

:bulletgreen:Do not advertise stuff such as a website link or deviation on my profile, please. If you have something you want to show me, show it via a note so nobody else can see. I hate to be pestered over and over so that may delay me in giving you a response to the subject. Or not at all.


Now that's out of the way; the introductions can begin.

I'm a fellow Australian, a British Railway enthusiast, Pokémon fan, amiibo collector and everyday gamer.

I may seem like the average friendly deviantART user at times, especially around friends and good people. But other times, I'm a grumpy, snarky bloke. As a result, I may be a dick to some people. A total erect dick, mind you.
Coming wide with me is useless. It's my decision alone to change who I am. This is the internet, so I can treat anyone with respect or disrespect when I want, whenever I want.
