We all love revisiting our older games, and there is really nothing wrong with that. Sometimes games even get the “HD” treatment forcing us to go back and replay them. But with so many HD Collections out, which ones offer the best value for money and overall gaming experience?
Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection
As we sit and wait for Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End to grace our consoles, we can soon play three of the best action adventure games to ever see the light of day. The Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection is the ultimate Uncharted experience. It comes with Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, and Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception. All of these games are remastered at full 1080p 60fps.
You cannot want anything more in life than getting to play through three of the best PS3 games to ever be released, in their best looking way possible
Halo: The Master Chief Collection
I really love Halo, and the Master Chief Collection is the only HD collection to contain 4 games (5 games if you include ODST), over 100 multiplayer maps, and over 10 000 Gamerscore. The games runs beautifully on the Xbox One, and Halo 3 was rebuilt with brand new visuals to go hand in hand with the hardware. You cannot ask for a better first person shooter collection, and while you are at it, you can catch up with the story before Halo 5: Guardians hits stores late in October.

Borderlands: The Handsome Jack Collection
As someone who spent their entire life playing Borderlands when it released, having Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel on one disc with a ton of DLC and a full trophy set, made me happy. The games both ran at full 1080p, and they looked gorgeous, especially if you had never played the games on anything else than consoles, which had a much lower resolution back in the day.
Megaman: The Legacy Collection
Well this is not really a HD collection, because it’s as classic and 8-bit as it could possibly get, but it is a modern collection of one of the most classic NES franchises in history. Megaman: The Legacy Collection has 6 of the very first Megaman games in one, in 8-bit glory with the classic soundtrack, passwords, and all those awkward disappearing platforms. There is really nothing else as nostalgic and classic as this.
Doom 3: BFG Edition
If you have not played Doom, then you need to question you gaming background as even if you only started playing games yesterday, Doom should have been the first thing you tried. Doom 3: BFG Edition launched on the PS3 and Xbox 360 with all the bells and whistles you could ask for. It had the first two games in their ultimate form with all the lost levels and multiplayer, and the Doom 3 running at 1080p, with some added in lost levels too. It was a “Hell” of a package, get it, Hell?
