    The new generation of consoles have seen plenty of remasters since the start, both the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One has had their share of games ported over from PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360; some more welcome than others, and some more successful. One company that has refrained from offering up any remasters at all thus far is Activision, the company behind one of the most successful gaming franchises of all time, Call of Duty.

    There is no denying that for many gamers the old Call of Duty games are the best ones by far, and the newer ones are just re-skinned moneymaking spin-offs. Up until now, fan favorites like Call of Duty 4 and MW2 have been stuck on last gen consoles or PC and have not been available for gamers that moved on to the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One. When Microsoft recently announced that backwards compatibility for the Xbox One was coming, they let gamers vote for what games they want to see available. And to no surprise, old CoD games hold 7 spots on the list of the top 15 most desired games. However, the backwards compatibility will just allow players to play the 360 version of the game. There are no tweaks and no upgraded graphics included. For some, that's more than enough, but not for those that would like to see what Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare would look like with today's technology. There is still hope though: Activision is not opposed to the thought of remastering some of these golden oldies. In a recent interview with Gameinformer, Activision's CEO of Publishing, Eric Hirshberg, said the following:

    "If done well, I think [remasters] can be great, you talk about nostalgia, and people have such connection to the games they love from the last cycle. They want to see what it would look like if someone did it right for this cycle. It's always the opportunity cost, meaning we need every body we can get to make the content we're already committed to for our new games. It's always a matter of finding great people to do that work. I would love to play Modern Warfare 1 or the original Black Ops. There's certainly a deep well there. No announcements, but it's something we talk about and think about a lot."

    What game would you like to see remastered from Activision's vast selection of games? Or are you maybe content with playing Black Ops I via the backwards compatibility feature on an Xbox One? Let us know in the comments below.

      Games like Sleeping Dogs and GTA were originally released for the Xbox 360 but were later ported over to the Xbox One.

    World at War and CoD4 would be the best bet. Hell even CoD 2 would be super epic but I dream too much of that one.

      Cod classics lol

    MW, MW2 or cod5 would push me to finally go next gen. especially if they remastered them as well as being able to play the originals. That way if you don't like the remastered version you can still play with a revived online presence and no mods. even though mods are fun and the online presence is still pretty good.

    Hands down would LOVE to see MW, WAW, and MW2 remastered. I first got my Xbox 360 back when MW1 came out and stuck with it for years. I still play them to this day with friends, some of which I met on those games. Please let this happen!

    I've been hoping for a remastered version of both COD4 and WaW ever since the XBONE and PS4 came out.

    I just hope they don't think it's a good idea to attempt to change around the maps and ruin it. Keep it the exact same in terms of maps and add in 8 maps for each game and add the WAR game-type for COD4.

    But most importantly, add 20 guns for each game (4 assault rifles, 2 sniper rifles, 4 sub machine guns, 2 LMGs, 2 shotguns and 6 additional sidearms).

    Edit: And I really don't see why they should remaster games like BO2 instead of focusing on the older CODs because the community on Black Ops 2 is still flourishing. COD4/WaW are 2 completely different matters though, not to mention the "modders" can be more than abundant.
