What's the point of fullblown remakes? Why not just make a brand new game?

REmake2 looks great and all, but I can't help but feel "Why wasn't this just a new Resident Evil?". They've already changed enough to make it significantly different from the original, why not just go the extra mile and make it a brand new scenario with new characters and story? Is seeing Leon back really that important? Is that location you remember with updated graphics really that exciting?

I love Resident Evil but I really don't see why we need to go and make a brand the game of something that already exists. I guess you could make that argument for sequels in general, but remakes like this feels like the next step in exploiting nostalgia and our love for something. Have we become so afraid of new things that plain sequels are now no longer good enough?
