The Best Video Game Remakes

10. Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening

Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening is not a perfect remake, suffering from some framerate hitching problems in the overworld and some dated design issues that could have used a bit of an update, but those issues seem relatively insignificant when you consider just how gorgeous and joyful this Switch remake is.
