As KingArgorok mentioned on the Suggestions thread, most of the games listed here aren't technically remakes. However, I disagree that this means we should split these games into more categories, especially since the biggest of these would have only three pages. Instead, I propose that we should rename this category and how these games are listed on the main page to something more fitting of all eight games (possibly re-releases). I realize this won't be a priority for staff but what are your thoughts on the matter?Link Lab (talk) 12:52, 15 August 2016 (UTC)

Indeed having many categories with just a few games or just one is not worth it. Remake is probably the best term for these overall, as re-release doesn't really imply that the games have been enhanced. Re-release sounds more like a VC release, which is basically the same game with no additions.
PS: in an unrelated topic, you don't seem to have any e-mail associated with your account, do you think you can link one or provide us with one so we can contact you? - Chuck * (Talk) 01:36, 16 August 2016 (UTC)
Yeah, I suppose that is true. Although, I would consider VC more of a port but I suppose there's not much of a difference. Maybe Enhanced Editions would be more suitable?
Sure, I've linked one now.Link Lab (talk) 09:15, 16 August 2016 (UTC)
