Well, perhaps remasters of the first three Tomb Raider games might tickle your fancy. Thankfully, the remasters will have modern systems in mind, thus being able to run on attractive graphics, at 1080p and 60fps. On PC they'll also have support for 360 and Xbox one game controllers in Windows 7 and Windows 10, and they're even adding in OpenVR support, so you can pop a fancy hat on. Realtech VR is looking to change all that, though, with their new remasters able to run the games in full High-Definition at 60 frames per second. Realtech VR is a Canadian company who has ported classic games to the iOS.

Below you can watch the two videos that show the remastered versions of Tomb Raider 1 and 2.

For those who might just want decent performance on modern systems: all graphics can be turned down!

The games will be available via Steam when it is released. Basically the remasters will use the original games' install packages, and that is why the remasters will only be available on Steam, too. However, they did mention that the first two games have already been completed and they are now working on the third one. Publisher Square Enix recently came under fire for releasing a remaster of Chrono Trigger to PC, only for that to turn out to be based on the mobile version, which caused the game to actually lose its visual charm in places. Are you excited for the new-old games?
