Mn, kind of a dubious claim imo. They're two very different types of games to begin with, and I guess while the PD remake may be a tad on the lower scale of financial investment compared to CTR, PD's also a lesser-known IP and I'm just glad we are actually getting ANYTHING PD-related since Orta. Plus to me, the visuals look pretty good, especially considering it's going to be on the Switch (I'll be picking up the GOG versions tho).
The genre doesn't matter. Activision spent a lot of money and had the game remade with a top-class game engine and its looks fab. Panzer Dragoon remake is terrible in contrast, done of the cheap and where the Art direction been changed for the worse and we now have Chapters instead of Episodes. Please...
SEGA has always had this weird fear of many of their legacy IP, especially the ones on Saturn and Dreamcast, and it's just ridiculous at this point
I think part of the trouble is that it's either done of the cheap or on a lesser system (like NiGHTS into Dreams) or its outsourced and really doesn't look like the classic IP (SOR IV). When SEGA does actually put its mind to it and one of top In-House studos on the task the results usally are far better like with OutRun 2
then they need to put the Yakuza team and maybe members from other teams onto a 3D SoR with heavily modified Yakuza gameplay
I rather the Yakuza Team made something new or did a sequel to Binary Domain. Like with Assassins Creed, I feel each new Yakuza game plays and looks pretty much like what's gone before. Nither IP is terrible and the games are well made, but I like to see the teams move on and then come back to the IP is say 4 years time
