Would you buy Metal Slug remastered?

    I've been playing the GOG release of Metal Slug 2 and am really loving it. It's a shame that in this day and age a game which once had excellent graphics now looks pixelated and dated. The gameplay and audio still are superb.

    Good graphics don't make a game good, but they do make an already good game better.

    Needless to say, Metal Slug remastered would be an insta-buy from me.

    A remake would be better imo, just remastering it would look lazy

    No remake/remaster needed, just use a good neo geo emulator and use scanlines (like old crt tv's)

    I enjoyed them a lot in the past when I were teenager. However, to be honest with you, the scanlines (like old crt tv's) is ugly and annoying. I don't like it. :)

    Some games with glorious hand drawn pixel art need a good 4:3 CRT to be played on. The next best thing would be playing them on a modern panel through a proper upscaler like an OSSC. Failing those options, playing them on a 240p panel (like on a 3DS) in 1:1 pixel mode with integer scaling will make them shine. Every other option (even ones that don't technically exist) would be such a downgrade that I can see why someone might think that there's a problem.

    The GOG release has a good emulator with optional scanlines. This helps a lot but on my laptop screen it still looks pixelated and the animations don't look quite as smooth as they once did. The Neo Geo hardware just isn't as capable as something 25 years newer than it.

    That would be best.
