** Playstation Doom TC is an attempt to recreate, as faithfully as possible (up to and including intro movies and the small "loading" graphic), the two Playstation Doom ports as a GZDoom-based mod.

* ''[[http://loveisstrange-vn.tumblr.com Love Is Strange ]] '' is a remake of ''VideoGame/LifeIsStrange'' which jettisons [[SugarBowl all of the angst]] and makes it a full-on DatingSim between Max and the girl of her choice.

** ''VideoGame/MegamanRevengeOfTheFallen'' is basically a compilation of Robot Masters and levels from ''VideoGame/MegaMan1'' through ''VideoGame/MegaMan9'' but remixed in such a way that the level designs are vastly different with many alternate routes and every Robot Master has a completely different AI pattern to learn and defeat. Outside of different level designs and boss patterns, the game is pretty faithful to the gameplay of the originals.

* The classic game ''VideoGame/StarControl 2'' received a nice open-source fan-made update called ''The Ur Quan Masters'' which fixed some game bugs, added in the enhanced 3DO music and sound effects, and made the game run well on Linux, Android and Windows.

** [[http://www12.atwiki.jp/rockman7/ Rockman 7 FC]] and [[http://www31.atwiki.jp/rockman8/ Rockman 8 FC]] are {{retraux}} remakes of two non-8-bit games, ''VideoGame/MegaMan7'' and ''VideoGame/MegaMan8''. These stick more closely to the NES formula than the originals (no intro stage, all eight bosses available instead of four at a time, no shop in [=RM7FC=], etc.), and [=RM8FC=] is a composite of the Playstation and SegaSaturn versions of the game (Tengu Man's stage theme from both versions take turns playing). Most interestingly, [=RM8FC=] replaces the Saturn-only Cut Man and Wood Man with Time Man and Oil Man from ''VideoGame/MegaManPoweredUp'' (you even get their weapons from them, unlike the original bosses). Interestingly, Capcom made their own 8-bit renditions of the final boss area backgrounds of both games (and ''VideoGame/MegaManAndBass'') for the OverlyLongGag scene in ''VideoGame/MegaMan9''[='=]s ending.

* ''VideoGame/DeusEx has been a long-standing popular game for modders. One group decided to release ''Deus Ex Revision'', which gives the original game updated high definition graphics, textures, characters models, and adds in new ambient sounds to the environments. Unlike Chrono Resurrection listed above, Creator/SquareEnix endorsed this mod and gave their full support. Players can download Revision on Steam for free, provided they already have the original Deus Ex game.

Also like a FanSequel, the bane of a Fan Remake is the dreaded [[ScrewedByTheLawyers cease-and-desist order]]. Corporations don't do this ''just'' from greed--sometimes it's because the fans wound up using registered trademarks of the company in their remake (in which infringement ''must'' be challenged to maintain ownership of the registration, compared to mere copyright infringement). {{Fan Remake}}s can also hinder what a corporation can do with its own remakes, as any new elements in a FanRemake belong to the fans who wrote it, or severely mess with the story and setting in such a way the company finds unacceptable.
