Five Current-Gen Games That Deserve A Next-Gen Upgrade Featured

Written by 

There are a handful of current-gen games that will be seeing a release on next-gen consoles. Those games include Assassin's Creed 4, Battlefield 4, Call of Duty: Ghosts and even Injustice: Gods Among Us. But what about the games that came out earlier this year? We've listed five of our favorite games from this generation that we truly believe deserve a next-gen re-release.

5. Bioshock Infinite (PlayStation 4, Xbox One)

Bioshock Infinite is one of the most talked about games of this generation; not only because of its amazing vistas but because of the unforgettable story it told. It is a true contender for Game of the Year, but unfortunately has sort of fallen by the wayside after the reveal of the next-gen consoles. It would be a sin not to see Bioshock Infinite make its way to the next-gen systems.

4. Grand Theft Auto V (PlayStation 4, Xbox One)

What could be one of the most controversial games of the generation is definitely one of the most addictive. GTA V is one of the most critically acclaimed games of the generation, and for good reason. The game sports a remarkable single-player campaign mode and an outright addictive multiplayer mode. I know there are a million people out there that would love to see Grand Theft Auto V in all its next-gen glory -- heck, this game is even coming out on PC!

3. The Last of Us (PlayStation 4)

Unfortunately this will not become a reality any time soon. Naughty Dog have already confirmed that they have no plans of bringing this masterpiece to life on the PlayStation 4. The Last of Us is as close as most games will come to touching upon the next-gen vibe -- so it is a little disappointing that there are no plans to bring this awesome game to the PlayStation 4. For now, just let us dream.

2. Splinter Cell: Blacklist (PlayStation 4, Xbox One)

Ubisoft have been on an amazing streak this year.With their continued support for all consoles, and a backlog of AAA quality games, Ubisoft is quickly becoming one of the greatest developers of this generation. They've truly satisfied fans of the Splinter Cell franchise by releasing what is considered, by many, the greatest Splinter Cell game to date. The addition of the revamped Spies vs. Merc mode was a pleasant surprise for oldschool fans. A most welcomed experience we'd love to see on the next-gen console.

1. MAG (PlayStation 4)

Call me crazy. but I honestly believe that MAG (Massive Action Game) is the most underrated first-person shooter game of all time. I absolutely love this game. Thought it didn't exactly release earlier this year it still deserves a spot on this list. It was amazing to experience a 256 player war on the PlayStation 3; truly ground breaking. The community interaction and team work in this game is unmatched by any other first-person shooter. This kind of experience is destined for the PlayStation 4, and I will be heart broken if it doesn't happen.

 

As the video above shows, MAG is one of the few first-person shooters that encourages you to play as a team. With the PlayStation 4 putting the focus on social media and interaction, MAG would be the perfect game to bring to life on the PlayStation 4. Heck, they are upgrading DC Universe Online... why not also bring MAG along?

There are of course a lot more games that truly deservea next-gen update, but these five titles were the ones that came to mind immediately. Some honourable mentions would definitely go to: Saints Row IV, Dust 514, and Skyrim. If you can think of a game that is not on this list that you would absolutely love to see on your Xbox One or PlayStation 4 be sure to tell us by leaving a comment below -- maybe some big executive is reading this article and will be inspired to act... you never know,
