Old Games you want remade or rereleased

Here's what I want

Remade:

Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine: I liked some of the plot of this game, and some of the puzzles, but I hated that Indy almost never used his fist and only really used his whip to cross gaps.

Rereleased:

Freddy Pharkas, Frontier Pharmacist: Pure gold. Only real great game Al Lowe made. I could probably get it off of a vintage game site, but I don't want to play it again that badly, but I would buy it if it appeared on Steam.

Mystical Ninja staring Goemon: Please come to Virtual Console, Please come to Virtual CONSOLE!

Oh fun!

Remade: Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time/Majora's Mask. I want to see a full console-based remake of these games with updated controls and graphics. Seriously, these were amazing, and the fact that Nintendo hasn't cashed in on the idea confuses me quite a bit. The N64 versions haven't aged well, and the 3DS Version of Ocarina, while serviceable, isn't quite big enough.

Rereleased: Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes. A fine remake, and it looks great and consistent alongside MGS2 and MGS3. But somehow, Konami hasn't gotten the idea to foot the bill to Nintendo and make fat stacks off of having be the centerpiece of a new HD collection. Such a pity.

I would like to have Basket Ball Nightmare remade, and Joust remade as a FPS.

rereleased:Beyond Good and Evil, Wasteland and Pikmen 1.

Remade:

Metal Gear & Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake. Use the Fox Engine and current graphics, along with improved MGS-style gameplay since Peace Walker & 4 to truly create the ultimate showdown: Solid Snake vs Big Boss (Naked Snake). I've honestly wondered what a full-on CQC & Patriot vs CQC & improvised equipment fight would look like between the both of them.

Command & Conquer games before RA2 & Tiberian Sun; this includes Red Alert & the expansions: Maybe it's me, but I could totally see a full-scale remake designed to run a full 60 FPS at all times working. Add in cheats, multiplayer that actually works, player map editors, & even a unit creator & you have a game here. Maybe EA can quit having a pissing contest with Activision & actually drop some quality.

Re-Release:

GTAs from 3 to San Andreas: Probably the best reasons to own a PS2, period. A remake of this would EASILY move units.

MGS: The Twin Snakes. Am I the only one who wants to replay MGS1 with a control scheme that's a bit less clunkier & actually uses the features they put in?

Freedom Fighters: I loved this game. And honestly, it would definitely sell well here.

Remade:

Legacy of Kain series. I've played only Blood Omen 2 and Defiance, but the world and overall setting is so awesome and there's a lot of potential there.

Back on PSone there was an awesome Turn-based/Action game called Unholy Wars. It was really good in mixing these two aspects and I'd really love to see more of that.

Any Turn-based Front Mission game. Please.

Re-released:

Dino Crisis 2. Just give it new shine of paint and it's ready to go.

Front Mission 3. Just give it new shine of paint, get rid of MOTHERFUCKING LINNY and it's ready to go.

Persona 3. Just give it the Persona 4: Golden treatment and it's ready to go.

Deus Ex, do it on Human Revolution's engine it'll fix the only bad things about it(graphics and not so good shooting system.) and introduce new gamers to the classic of classics. Square has blamed their western branch on their stupidity and monetary losses however and it becomes an unreachable dream every day.

Also Grim Fandango

Re-release? That's tough, most PC games are still playable. There are some console games I'd like on my PC like the SNES Shadowrun I'd like to play that with the mouse instead.

Remade I only have 1 game. TIE Fighter!!!!!!!! And remade not because it was in any way bad but to update the game with new tech and a more intricate storyline now that we know so much more of the SW Universe now.

Re-released most of the C&C games

I love this kind of thread!

Vagrant Story and, Legend of Dragoon would make for great remakes I think. Even if it's just the kind of remake that we saw back in the Playstation for Final Fantasy games: Keep the gameplay in tact but update the graphics and, include improved cinematics. It would likely be best released through PSN, XBLA, E-shop, Steam, etc.

remade tie fighter, x wing, wingcommander 1-4

Remake: Quest For Glory series... make this a 3rd person RPG, keep the humor and colorful characters and plotlines, but touch it up with some better writing and add-in good voice actors. I really think this would sell well as a large scale hub-world RPG instead of 5 parts... Spielburg, Shapeir, Fricana, Mordavia and Silmaria are all awesome locales worthy of a larger exploration model. Plus Erasmus and Fenris are two of my all time favorite characters.

Seconded. I would love to see Tie Fighter optimized with modern graphics and full compatibility with modern operating systems (the hoops I had to jump through to get my copy working on my laptop...). As for audio, I'd want them to re-record the original soundtrack and keep the dynamic music from the original release rather than phoning it in with red book audio from the films like in the Windows 95 version.

I dunno about altering the story though, it's pretty awesome as-is. I suppose a few more short cutscenes between campaign missions would be fine. There's always the "flavor text" from the manual and player's guide if you really want an in-depth narrative.

I only want one game remade: Starsiege. Not Starsiege Tribes, but the original Starsiege, the best mech simulator that I've ever played. I liked the story, I loved the mechs, and the gameplay was simple to get into, but tough to really master.

Unfortunately, its pretty old, I'm pretty sure that the developer is kaput, and that there's little interest in it since it was at least somewhat obscure.

But, if only it was remade with a new engine, had a slightly re-written story, revamped graphics, and improved controls, I'd play it in a heartbeat.

I've always wondered what A Link to the Past would be like if they did it in the style of Ocarina of Time.
I don't mean a spot for spot remake, I mean along the lines of a Resident Evil Remake where the developers rework certain sections or make some little additions of their own.

The overworld would probably be amazing.

Sid Meier's Alpha Centuri needs a sequel or a remake. to bring the graphics up to modern speed.

Did the Starseige series include Earthsiege 2? I loved that with the whole head down display for tactical ordering and shooting robots in the knees with particle cannons.

I would like to nominate Elite 2. The only other comparable game that I can think of in the modern era is the X series and I want soemthing more simulatery.

What games i want re-relesed or re-made? Well there is a few. Power Stone could use a re-relese in hd or something, maybe we would see a sequel to it, and if not, then a reasonable re-make would be cool too. Sacrifice could use some love too, a Mayday re-release would be cool, also some Legacy of Kain stuff. Thats all i can think of , of the top of my head.

There is none I can think of right now but I would like to get a re-released SSB Melee with an online mutli-player mode because I still love that game. If it's to be remade then it has to be by someone who isn't retarded when making decisions.

None.

Why should I want time wasted on a rerelease or remake? I could as well just play the damn game.

I'd love to see Crono Trigger remade - or at least with updated graphics.
The feel and the music from that game is still the standard I set for all other games, even though the gameplay itself was rather easy and the story didn't always carry. Despite that though, yeah: Crono Trigger.

TheKasp:
None.

Sometimes remaking or updating a game can improve upon the original, creating a fresh experience fresh while keeping the core mechanics and feel of the original. It can also introduce a whole new generation to really fantastic classics that are lost/forgotten to the annals of time.

I for one would love to see an updated version of the SEGA Genesis TBS game Master of Monsters. I know they made an unfortunate sequal at some point, but just having the original updated would be enough to wring 20-30 bucks out of me. It is still one of my all time favorite strategy games, despite being quite basic. Some of the campaign missions were downright hard.

To anyone who likes TBS games and has never heard of Master of Monsters, I highly recommend you try and find a way to play it. It doesn't have great depth, but the mechanics are very well balanced and it is a lot of fun.

Just give me FFVII with modern graphics and voice-acting. Maybe I'll understand and pay attention to the convoluted story if I don't have to read it all from little low-poly figurines that look like happy meal toys that got run over by a car.

And yes, I understand that's the best they could do with PS1 graphics, but still. If they're willing to fucking re-release Final Fantasy X, then with how much begging has gone on for a FFVII remake not doing it at this point is just trolling. I understand Square isn't doing so well at the moment, but surely there's enough nostalgia for it that a HD re-release of FFVII could earn them some serious bank.

None, because all the old games I liked are perfect the way they are and I would rather see something new being made properly and grow to like that.

I'd like Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee remade... oh yeah it's comming this fall.

I want another remake of Conker's Bad Fur Day so bad. Just to be able to play it again with out emulation (somehow my N64 copy disappeared and I don't want to buy another copy for $200) would be amazing and I think it would be pretty fun to be able to play some of the multiplayer modes online.

Vampire: Bloodliens remade with all the cut dialog and abilities would be a godsend. I would really like a PC rerelease of Bayonetta (yes I know it's not possible, it's jsut wishful thinking).

FFVII: They must still have the 3D models used to make Advent Children - one wouldn't just throw all that away... a lot of the work is already done.

X-WING/TIE FIGHTER/WING COMMANDER 1-4: YES PLEASE. So much potential for epic times (again.) Full HD glory. Orchestrated adaptive music (ie: if your ship has holes in it, you get the "uh oh" music.)

... on the opposite side of the coin, some things were never meant for bigger and better things. Plaque Attack for the Atari 2600 - that'd just be gross if there was more detail.

I can think of some, but I just know they wouldn't live up to the impossible standards in my mind. In that regard, maybe a game that I liked that had some horrible presentation issues like Fallout: New Vegas (yes I know that's too recent), just give it a newer engine to make it less clunky while not dumbing down the core of the game.

I guess I'd like to maybe see Way of the Samurai 1 & 2, not changing ANYTHING other than graphics (not that they matter), giving us the Japanese voice option (or in the case of WotS1, giving us fully voiced cutscenes), and not having the player lose their swords upon death. In other news, WotS4 was a disappointment.

Id rather just see quest for glory rereleased with a fresh coat of graphics. I think a 3rd person action style would take away some of its charm.

Here's what I want

Remade:

Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine: I liked some of the plot of this game, and some of the puzzles, but I hated that Indy almost never used his fist and only really used his whip to cross gaps.

And fix the Aiming mechanic. You couldn't aim, but indy had to point at a target on his own when he detected them, before you could shoot it. Also, some of the levels had wild animals that would try to kill you but you couldn't kill them. All you could do was shoot into the air so they run away for a short time.

I'm killing enough humans, so how is saving animals making me a better person here?

Wooo! Second use of this image on this site today!

I would love to see an HD remake of this game, with an improvement to the graphics...! I will also dig out an old post I made about it and re post it here to further make the point!

EDIT: Here it is:

I'd really like to see Ogre Battle: March of the Black Queen remade, or just a new Ogre Battle game made. Not another one of those irritating grid-based Tactics Ogre beasts either, I want my open, unit based fantasy war game back. >.>

I'll also +1 a remake of the Quest for Glory games, I loved those when I was a kid. ^_^

American McGee's Alice. Loved the game when I first played it, somehow lost it and it's really hard to find right now, despite the release of the sequel. Even worse, apparently the original game is included with Madness returns but only for certain platforms/purchasing a certain way. It's obviously still around, so why can't I buy it?

I've seen this kind of post at least 3 times within the last couple months, and I always say the same things:

A proper Turok reboot
Star Wars: Rogue Squadron
Another campy story version of Need for Speed: Most Wanted

My work computer won't let these pages load properly so I can't quote Vladimir Stamenov but I pretty much came in here to say I'd love a remake of Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines. Phenominal game and set world despite the bugs and cuts.

An HD rerelease with updated graphics, but with the visual aesthetic of the first game would be amazing!

AMEN! You know, if the rights to the game weren't in CCP's hands for the MMO, Obsidian or inXile could make an awsome Vampire or Werewolf game via Kickstarter... Too bad.
