Video games can spark a burst of creativity in people every now and then, and often, people choose to channel that creativity into paying homage to those games themselves. Fan remakes are an often overlooked section of the industry, and in this feature, we’ll be talking about 15 of the most impressive fan remakes we’ve ever seen- whether that’s full-on remakes, or smaller recreations of certain segments and sections of games.
So without further ado, let’s get started.
Perhaps the most well-known (and also probably one of the very best) fan remakes to have ever been released. Black Mesa, which only recently launched after years of development, is a full-on remake of Half-Life 1– and without the shadow of a doubt, it is the best way to experience that all-time classic. That it not only understands and perfectly encapsulates everything that made Valve’s shooter so good, but also actually makes it better in many ways is a testament to its impeccable quality.
