Over on gaming forum NeoGAF, something wonderful is happening.
A thread called “NeoGAF turns modern games into PSOne-era classics!” has kicked off and talented artists have turned the clock back on some of the most popular games of our modern era. It began on a The Last of Us: Remastered forum, where user plainr jokingly posted “TLOU PS1: 240p edition” along with the following pictures:
What followed next was magical. NeoGAF forum users began creating their own “demakes” of Bioshock, DOTA 2, Dark Souls, Persona 4 and many more. We wish some of these could launched back in the PlayStation 1 days, especially the 2D Dark Souls. The thread continues and we look forward to any upcoming demakes from the dedicated fans over on NeoGAF.
