Another day, another beloved classic being remastered into glorious HD for the latest generation of consoles. God of War 3: Remastered was announced earlier this week for the PlayStation 4 in celebration of God of War’s tenth birthday. This marks one of many remasters that have made up the PlayStation 4’s somewhat limited first-party library so far, and fans had a lot to say about it.
Whether people were unhappy with the increasing frequency of remasters over the years or over the moon about being able to play one of their favorite games on a new system, it’s safe to say the reaction was somewhat mixed favoring disappointment.
Here’s a roundup of Twitter’s opinions on the God of War 3: Remastered announcement.
PortStation 4 is an interesting new title.

Others more defensively excited.
I'm going to be buying God of War 3 on PS4. If that bothers you, you probably need to grow up a bit.

Is the remaster an indication of games to come?
God of war 3 remastered is a warm up for when the new one comes out
— Fontay Montana (@polo430) March 21, 2015
Valid point. Maybe they’re trying to get people to play the other titles on PS Now?
I'd be interested in a God of War Collection that was remastered for PS4. But God of War 3, by itself, which already looked fantastic? Meh.

Uncharted Remastered WOULD be pretty nice…

God of War 3 was a nice looking game. How much better can it get, we wonder?
Remaking God of War 3 for PS4 is just going to show how small a gap there is between @PlayStation 3 & 4.

Some were exasperated by the news of yet another Remaster.
God of War 3 remaster? Uuuugh.
— Funny Johnentine (@Red_Vanguard) March 21, 2015
Why the hell do we need God of War 3 remastered? We are getting more remasters than actual new games this year.
