[From now until early January, our sister site IndieGames.com: The Weblog will be counting down the best indie titles of 2008, and we'll be reprinting the best here on GameSetWatch for your viewing and playing pleasure.]

The fifth of the 2008 Best Of Features over at the IndieGames.com blog, we're proud to present ten of the best freeware remakes released in 2008.

From upgraded remakes with painstakingly redrawn and recolored graphics, to the most retro of downscaled remakes with blocky pixel art and noisy chiptunes, IndieGames.com has rounded up ten remakes of classic games that you should not miss the second time around.

Here's the top freeware remakes (and demakes) of the year:
