GOTY 2015: Remaster

Back for a second bite of the apple, here's the best remasters of 2015.

Honourable Mentions

Saints Row IV got a remaster earlier this year; it came with all the DLC and looks a little prettier. It was also bundled with the standalone expansion 'Gat out of Hell', and although it wasn't a classic, it was a fun few hours of demonic tomfoolery.
Final Fantasy Type-0 HD is a remaster but also a new experience for us as this game never got released outside of Japan until now. This Final Fantasy ditches turn-based combat, in favour of a system which is more action-oriented. It also came with a demo for Final Fantasy XV.
The third-person shooter that arguably changed the genre and how action games use cover mechanics, got a complete re-do and this version is fantastic. The game runs at 1080p and 60fps and includes the sixth chapter, which was originally exclusive to PC.
When Dishonored came out back in 2012, it wowed people with its stealthy gameplay and wonderful art style. The story was great as well. The definitive edition makes it look even better and contains all the DLC too.
One of the most critically acclaimed games of all time got a remaster this year. Journey is a beautifully crafted game, and if you haven't already played it, we recommend getting to it sooner rather than later.
Majora's Mask, one of Link's most memorable adventures, got remastered for 3DS this year, and visually it is wonderful. When put side by side next to the original N64 version you can really see the improvement. This title is a must have for 3DS owners.
