    For me it would be the original 2 Deus Ex games (have a HR 2 and then tie it in with the original more to give more closure to the open ending of HR1).
    Final Fantasy 7. Square is danged near bankrupt and refuses to do this game even though they have all the character models from the other FF7 games and movie. This would make them a fortune.
    I want a port of the Iphone Transformers G1 game.
    I'd love someone to do collections of NES/SNES and sega games updated for new systems. New graphics and maybe storyline items only but not changing how the game is played (no turning it into a FPS or something).
    I'd love the shadowrun games to be remade (again no making them an FPS) and have the Japanese only one brought over.
    Metal gear 1 and metal gear 2 Solid snake (no snake's revenge crap please): the creator said he'd give the okay but doesn't have time to do it himself. I think making them to play like the MGS games would work really well and it would get tons of new gamers who are fans of the MGS series.

    Zombies Ate My Neighbors. I would love for it to still have the same comedic sense and gameplay, but with a better graphics and a solid story.

    Outlander on the sega genesis and super Nintendo. It was a Mad Max/Road Warrior rip-off, and I loved it.

    This game could be sooooo much fun on today's systems.

    I'd like to see a new version of the Crusader No Remorse/No Regret games. They would have to keep the same format, not change it to FPS though. The Wing Commander series needs a new game, as does the X-Wing/TIE Fighter series.

    I agree. Outlander was one of those gems i found at the local game store. It's how i found the SNES shadowrun and 7th Saga. I'd love to see the Mutant League games back. I wonder how much it would cost to get the rights to half these games and remake them. I still want to start up a hobby gaming making team, if we couldn't get/afford the games we could at least use them for inspiration.
    The one issue is the mainstream game industry is aiming at kids and have forgotten the adult gamers who want more than FPS games. Plus a lot of these companies have been sucked up by big publishers who don't want to take risks by anything that isn't the flavor of the moment.

    Edit: The only wing commander i know of is a fan based game that takes place in the same universe but i think it's been spinning it's wheels. I seriously want to do my own small hobby game making but i haven't' found anyone to do it that doesn't want huge money. For some reason hobby equates payment these days.

    I liked this one and Rush'n Attack. I wish the arcade companies would put out their arcade games for the new systems, i mean there are so many good games and it would make mame cabinet building so much easier. I know some of them were put out for the PS1 and such but still a lot of the later 80s ones weren't.

    I want to see the remake Star Wars: Masters of Teräs Käsi with more characters.

    Darth Maul vs Yoda
    Darth Vader vs Obi Wan
    Jar Jar vs Chewbacca (with finish him feature)

    another vote for x-wing vs tie

    I'd like to see "Star Trek: Secret of Vulcan Fury" get made.

    Judgment Rites, 25th Anniversary & Next Gen: A Final Unity.
    Loved those games

    How about Rebel Assault III while I'm at it.

    Well the original x-com is getting a remake but i'd like to see terror from the deep and apocalypse redone. The original duke nukems redone would be good too. I'd like to see a new version of Rise of the Dragon and Snatcher (there is a playstation one but only in japan) as well as policenauts which never got to the US. They need to also bring over Front mission 5.

    The original X-Wing, Tie Fighter, and X-Wing Alliance.

    The original Secret Weapons of the Luftwaffe.

    The old Sierra adventure games.

    Not a remake, but I'd like to see Fred Ford, III and Paul Reich's vision of Star Control 3, and then sweep the "official" one under the rug for good.

    And another vote for Outlander. I'd LOVE to play a good Mad Max style game.

    How about a remake of the NES Mad Max game? It had so much promise that fell through. Adventure Island 3 anyone? I wish some company would make platform games like the old systems, you find them online all the time but i guess nobody wants to try and get them made for systems.

    Yes!!

    Add to that "Neuromancer", based on the William Gibson book of the same name, and "Out of This World" (also known as "Another World").

    I wish Brian Fargo could get EA to come off the rights to Wasteland, the prototype of Fallout, he got them to give him the rights to a sequel at least. Also Bad Blood for the PC was a good RPG. There are a lot of post apocalyptic and cyberpunk games that could do with a remake. Also the original Battletech games from the PC days would work too.

    Sadly Microsoft owns FASA who apparently kept the rights to the Shadowrun videogames and Wizards of teh coast owns the paper version so i'm not sure we'd find any good version to come. If anyone did it i'd want the people at Eidos who did Deus Ex: HR to do it as it felt like a shadowrun game to me.

    Wasnt that Legacy of Kain Defiance?

    I believe there were 5 games in the series -

    Blood Omen
    Soul Reaver
    Soul Reaver II
    Blood Omen II
    Defiance

    The only ones I really liked were the two soul reaver games though.

    They've actually done remakes like one with Missile Command by they were half-hearted. Moon Patrol from the C64 would be a good one.

    Edit: wow i didn't know they had that many in the Kain series. I only played the original.

    The 7th Guest and the 11th hour. LOVED those games. They were revolutionary for their time but I'll best most of the people on here have never even heard of them.

    There's a remake project for this game. It's a remake of the original trilogy and then some. Check it out.

    Streets of Rage Online - The #1 SOR Resource Site and Fan Community

    Trilobyte did such a fantastic job with those games. My college roommates and I spent hours on the puzzles in the 7th Guest. I thought the 11th hour was a little easier puzzle wise but I found the story to be more interesting (and definitely creepier).


    Personally, I'd love to see a remake of the original Master of Orion. Macro-management at it's finest and one of the most intuitive tech trees ever. I'd give a remake of the old C64 Autoduel game a try for sure.

    And Windows only games rears its ugly head again. Thanks for the info though that's really cool, I'm glad the franchise is still alive and kicking.

    Another game I forgot to mention would be Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire for the Nintendo 64. I loved that game, loved the book and have most of the merchandise from that franchise. I would buy the game the first day if it was remade.

    Drewid I hope you have something up your sleeve for that also :)

    I keep hoping some company like working designs will arrive and rescue us with turn based RPGs but not much luck other than stuff coming to Wii and they're not turn based. How about an action version of Where in the world/ where in time is carmen Sandiego? I miss those games. Or good remakes of the original dragon warriors. Heck i'd love for Ikari warriors to come back lol

    With Kinnect and the Wii Pong could be an interesting one to try.

    I did some digging and I didn't see anything about a remake although there were lots of people requesting one. Would you consider a ROM file instead?

    ataris roadblasters, and id still love to see a decent star wars game that was as playable as ataris - tech is here but all we get is lame star wars games. i want proper x wing death star battles, proper falcon and star destroyers etc etc.

    been years since i have been into an arcade - games of today simply dont have ebough interest to the 80s and 90s where they were leagues ahead of the home market. arcades now feel like they just have ps3's inside them

    I loved those as a kid... Would love to see what they could do with them now.

    Oregon Trail - The MMO. :lol

    Honestly, I would rather have sequels to games rather than remakes - original stories (that may or may not be direct sequels, like Fallout New Vegas). In fact, I think a lot of games waste some resources where they could use the same models/settings and just come up with new stories (like GTA 4 and it's DLC - there's not a lot of new models and settings it's new stories within the same setting - they could have come out with 8 more DLCs based on the same city).

    ...though I wouldn't mind a version of Jet Set Radio Future on the iPad...

    Also an excellent choice, preferably with a mod where you can drive cars with no weapons or other gear, but can use a shotgun instead. :) basically a Mad Max mod.

    Oh, and the old Wing Commander and Privateer games (well, the first Privateer, anyway).

    The Shadow Warrior - Lo Wang

    That game was hilarious! Sure it was politically incorrect but it had me in tears on multiple occasions with his slap stick, Bruce Lee'esk trash speak.

    Multi-player was even more hilarious as you could taunt your opponents with his bad kung-fu movie speak.

    Bunnies * in the bushes, talking about washing his Wang, endless smack talk... Too funny..

    What with the online Old Republic game, how about redoing KOTOR 1 & 2 (and actually finishing 2)? I'd also like to see the Jedi Academy games get a Force Unleashed style makeover.

    I can't believe anyone remembers Outlander. * I loved that game. You could actually see the motorcycle savages flying backward over your car in the rearview after hitting them. I had dreamed how cool it would be if the on-foot part were fps rather than side scroller. The 16 bit limitations and future possibilities seemed obvious.

    Systemshock would be an awesome remake ala Bioshock. I have actually been replaying 7th Guest on the iPad. Very cool indeed.

    For straight up remakes, Dark Forces and Rescue on Fractalus could use a graphics and sound makeover,

    Definitely the X-Wing and TIE Fighter games... or just a new game with all various Star Wars fighters. Could be fun to steer the Falcon into battle... or manage a Star Destroyer... but mostly fun to pilot the iconic fighters...

    My ultimate game:

    An intelligent game universe that responds to your character's reputation, which is developed through actions and connections with other characters. Then, basically a hybrid of Privateer (as far as commerce and the open-world quality), and a first person shooter/RPG, all set in the Star Wars universe.


    Nobody's gonna make it, though.

    Sadly the original crew has broken up. Brian Fargo runs InXile games, bethesda's busy killing fallout and i think a few of the Interplay crew went with them, Black Isle i think is gone, Chris Averlone is with Obsidian Entertainment who did New Vegas and might work on Wasteland 2. I'd love them to all get back together though.
