This and FF7 remake should be considered the standards when it comes to remaking a ground breaking entry in a franchise. Unsurprisingly, both of those titles were my own personal GOTY when they were released.

Glad RE2 remake has done so well as it sends a message to developers out there about about the success they can achieve financially when they properly bring back a classic and influential title into the modern era.

Great, great game! The only gripe I have with this game is the limited ammo on higher difficulties. Of course I don't want it to be an action game, but I just love to blow up heads and limbs and limited ammo takes some of that away. Amazing game though.

Probably my favorite remake (at least among games I've played both versions)

Agreed. It is easily my favorite Capcom game. The original RE trilogy were my favorite Capcom games, and RE2 remake is now IMO the gold standard of how to do remakes.

Throw in Code: Veronica and I completely agree with you.

Re2 remake is definitely the gold standard when it comes to making remakes and I hope other developers take note.
