That's more or less what they've done here, so you should be asking yourself that "what the hell is wrong with you" question, unless you've never owned a copy of RE4.
What in the world are you yapping about? It's clear you have no idea what you're saying. None of that even made remotely any sense. Not a single word out of your mouth is understandable just now.
Increasing the native resolution of a game, giving it higher resolution textures, and removing effects that limit the game's graphical presentation (such as unncessary fog to reduce draw distance for example) greatly changes a game's clarity.
You're absolutely insane if you think that they're wrong to compare the new remastered edition at a 720p resolution to the previous version of the game's 480p in a 720p stretched picture. THATS THE POINT OF IT
. For you to argue against that is to argue against the entire purpose of an HD version of the game. Do you even have a brain cell at work here?
That's a proper comparison of a SD version of the game to the HD remastered edition. You take the original version of the game (whatever platform it make be - this case PS2) stretch or upscale it to SAME resolution the HD version is in order to compare. That's the ONLY way to do it properly. That's apples-to-apples. What's wrong with you?
According to YOUR half minded logic, you would do this or something similar:
Good job - that completely makes sense.
This is the SAME thing as DVD vs Bluray for example.
You're basically saying it would be wrong for me to take a DVD, play it stretched or upscaled at 1080p, take a screenshot of it, and compare it to a 1080p Bluray screencap. That's the ENTIRE purpose of the comparison taking place - to show the differences that the newer version has over the older one.
Either they're comparing to the PS2 version or they're modifying the original images to make it look far worse than it actually does.
The PS2 version of RE4 did have a number of graphical differences, but the Gamecube version of the game STILL looked similar. It didn't look painstakingly different at all like those screenshots show. You're completely misinformed and don't have a clue about what you're talking about sir.
as compared to this:
Are you even on planet earth? There are differences in the GC and PS2 version, duh, but they're still identical overall. Whether you blow up GC or the PS2 version of the game, it's still going to be the same as that comparison picture.
How about PC? Lol, nah, forget it. RE4 on PC was a steaming pile of
