GTA Trilogy Definitive Edition remaster: Is it too expensive?

GTA Trilogy Definitive Edition remaster: Is it too expensive?

I’ll pay a big price for it.

One reader asks why whispers have become so accurate during the pandemic, while the Wednesday Inbox wishes there were more football games to rival FIFA.

I’m not sure if the criticisms about GTA Trilogy Definitive Edition being too pricey are totally justified. In general, I agree that £70 (or £65) is excessive, but we’re talking about remasters of three big titles, and as long as they can show that the games aren’t simply boosted to 4K and 60fps, I believe that’s a reasonable price.

I don’t know if you’ve played GTA 3, or any of the others, lately but the thing plays like an absolute dog. I certainly wouldn’t want to be the one to update it to modern standards but if that’s what they manage to do then I think £65 is reasonable.

It’s been the truth for a long time now but there’s a real question with working out value for money for games nowadays. Between microtransactions, bloated open world games, and DLC being held back for later there’s no easy way to say a game is or isn’t worth it. Some games that are £60 or £70 are absolutely worth it, or more, while some that are £10 aren’t. The answer is probably to have much more variety in prices, but I think in this case the high price is justified.

The best of Samus

Very happy to say see Metroid Dread doing so well, both critically and commercial. I’ve got it and an OLED model booked in for my birthday at the end of the month but I’m curious what readers and GC think is the best of the series? Super Metroid and Metroid Prime are widely accepted as 10/10 games so I guess it’s third? Or maybe Zero Mission is?

Like you said in your review, it’s a very high quality franchise with only a few duds – and most of those quite recently. I like that the way back for it was just to go back to the roots and make a good Metroidvania, no massive gimmicks (the whole robot thing seems a fairly natural evolution of Fusion) and just good solid game design. Or at least that’s what I’m read, I hope it turns out that way when I play it myself. Dorf

PS: Next step for rehabilitation: F-Zero! No secrets

I’m not in the slightest bit surprised about the GTA remasters costing £70. The thing I’m more interested in is why the boxed versions aren’t going to be out this year for next gen. That sounds like a lot of missed money at Christmas and is basically the only part of the rumours that I don’t necessarily believe. I am amazed though at just how many rumours there are nowadays and how accurate they are. I realise GC is cherry-picking the believable seeming ones but even so I can’t remember the last time something was announced that hadn’t been previously leaked.

It’s not like the internet is new or anything so what has happened in the last year or so that’s changed how things work? Covid obviously, but why should that make rumours more commonplace? I can only assume that it’s either friends or family members finding out what someone is working on at home or just the fact that people not all being in the same place any more means that information is just getting spread out and more and leaking through the gaps. Banana decision

The thing I’ve never understood about Fortnite is why it doesn’t have any memorable characters. I know it has got some named ones but it’s only really hardcore fans (aka my son) that know who they are and Jonesey is the only one that they actually seem to push in the cut scenes and so on. Not that I care either way but I can’t help imagining they’ll regret that when it comes to things like making a movie or cartoon show, which probably would’ve happened a lot sooner if there had been proper characters to base it around.
