Modern Warfare 2 Is The Game Most People Want To See Remastered
Well, the votes are in, the tally has been counted. LADbible readers reckon that the video game that most needs remastering is Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.
We stuck the idea out on Twitter, and after over 22,000 of you voted, Modern Warfare 2 edged out a whole list of classics such as The Simpsons: Hit & Run, and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.
38% of you think that COD:MW2 should be brought into 2019.
Which video game would you like to see remastered?

Incidentally, it's not out of the question. In fact, it was rumoured around this time last year that the game could be getting a reboot. This year will mark the tenth anniversary of the release of the first person shooter game.
That fact is important because COD's producers, Activision, have got previous when it comes to marking decade anniversaries.
In fact, they released Modern Warfare Remastered pretty damn close to this exact anniversary. Bring it on.
Activision have had a pretty tough time of it recently, though. They've just announced a few weeks back that they are cutting 8% of their entire workforce. That means that around 800 people are losing their jobs.
That's not good news.
Despite the fact that the company produces some of the biggest games in the business, they said that the company "didn't realise [its] full potential" in 2018.
That's despite them releasing Black Ops IIII, which took around $500m in it's opening weekend.
In the same figures in which they announced the job losses, they did provide fans with some positive news about the next in their Call of Duty series. It's rumoured to be a return to the Modern Warfare series. Not a remastering of Modern Warfare 2, but a whole new game.
We believe this to be the case because it is being produced by the Infinity Ward studio that made all of the other Modern Warfare games.
Rob Kostich, the president of Activision, said recently that the next game will be an "entirely new campaign". He also promised that there will be "a huge and expansive multiplayer world and some fun co-op gameplay."
He added: "This fall's launch, I think, is going to resonate very powerfully with our community. It is an amazing game. Every time we've shown this internally, it just creates a ton of buzz.
"I wish I could tell you a lot more right now, but unfortunately you're going to have to wait. But I think it's going to be really worth it. We can't wait to share it with the world."
That's something, then.
Hopefully Kostich has his eyes glued to the LADbible timeline and is willing to give the people what they want. Modern Warfare 2 Remastered.
