    Thunder Force IV. Keep it a 2D side-scroller with an expertly-covered metal soundtrack and you've got a reinvented classic.

    Also, how did I know Justin would say Virtua Racing?

    I hope DuckTales Remastered is a HUGE succes that leads to a whole new batch of DuckTales games. When Warren Spector said he wanted to make one but Disney wasn't interested I was disappointed, but this game existing gives me some hope. And the Epic Mickey games may have been giant letdowns, his vision of a DuckTales game was pretty great.

    For me it would have to be Shadowman. It's a great game but if it was rebuilt from the ground up on today's technology it could really heighten the creepy atmosphere and make the experience much darker and horrific. If we're talking a bit of sheen polish then Hired Guns for the Amiga. An underrated/underplayed gem of a game.

    Oh, and I want to see an XCOM Interceptor remake with all the love of the recent Firaxis remake and with proper TIE Fighter sensibilities. And TIE Fighter, for that matter.

    Virtua Racing in HD!!!! But more than that I need...Panzer Dragoon II Zwei HD, and Burning Rangers HD. Capcom actually WANTS to make Chip and Dale's Rescue Rangers HD. They just want to release DuckTales first to make sure it will sell. AND they are already releasing an HD sequel to Strider 2!!!!
  • MrPkhead - August 9, 2013 10:15 a.m.

    Syndicate. But properly. Even back in the days of Amigas and 486s the tactical flexibility was amazing, and these days they could do so much with the tech trees, far more varied and emergent missions and modern graphics could really do the atmospheric cities some justice. What about a massively multiplayer persistent world? Corporate alliances? Class specialism? I live in hope that someone will make this happen. It worked for Enemy Unknown. Pirates. I played it to death on a friend's PC, played it to death on my PSP and more recently again on the PS Vita. There is SO much potential for customising ships, recruiting and developing individual crew, ship to ship / fleet combat, trading, political shenanigans with the different countries and special missions for government powers, rescuing family members, exploration etc. There is SO much more that could be done with this concept. And for goodness's sake can someone PLEASE do something with Freedom Fighters? It was astonishing.

    If you like Syndicate check out the Kickstarter for Satellite Reign. It looks awesome. Pirates has been redone to death...but it needs to be redone to life!
  • MrPkhead - August 9, 2013 12:30 p.m.

    Hadn't heard of Satellite Reign before but it looks phenomenal. Syndicate Wars was brilliant. Don't think I'd ever destroyed so much scenery before. Thanks for the steer!

    I'd totally be up for an Adventure of Link remake. Especially if it was proper 2D (including art style) like Rayman and not the 3D-models-but-2D-gameplay like NSMB. Timesplitters 2 would also be excellent, but include Future Perfect as a HD collection and I'd pay full price for them despite still owning them both. My number one pick is probably never likely since the rights are in limbo. But I'd choose Tombi (Tomba). I sunk hours into it trying to find every hidden secret and every time I thought I was close to finishing it, another 5 quests would unlock featuring more places that you hadn't even seen before. It had that MetroidVania gameplay and graphics that were pretty good for the time but it looks a bit naff today. So a full HD Tombi would be amazing for me.
  • MonsieurRik - August 10, 2013 6:16 a.m.

    Yes! Tombi is amazing and I hope it someday gets the remake it deserves. That ridiculous soundtrack alone is worth a remaster. There's SO much to do in that game and it's all fun and weird and wonderful. I don't know if Crash Bandicoot is classic enough for this list but I think remakes of the first 3 Crash games could be beautiful. A few years ago I would have added Rayman and Oddworld but they're already back, so I'm hopeful more franchises like them return.
  • sixo T - August 8, 2013 12:42 p.m.

    For me i'd agree with Bushido blade. But i'd also like to see another Road Rash 64.
  • jedisamurai - August 9, 2013 11:48 a.m.

    I keep asking myself where the Road Rash XBLA release is??? A remake of ANY Road Rash would be welcome IMO.
  • pl4y4h - August 8, 2013 11:35 a.m.

    I'd love to see Metal Arms back in some way shape or form
  • mafyooz - August 8, 2013 11:11 a.m.

    As well as all the great 90 stuff like The Immortal, Taz-Mania, Toejam and Earl, Buck Rodgers: Countdown to Doomsday and Decap Attack that I'd like to see remade, there's quite a few from the 80s that could be cool too. Exile, Elixir and The Last Ninja spring immediately to mind :)
  • PatHan-bHai - August 8, 2013 11:05 a.m.

    Actually David, there is a Japanese game for the PS2 which is exactly like Bushido Blade. It is extremely hard to play; has a story mode (with a good story) and the combat is gorgeous (one hit kills, perma-death story and parrying). I can't remember it's name but it was made before 2004 because that's when my Dad had bough it. Good luck with trying to find it tho. :) Super Dodgball was a pretty great game. I want an online version! >:O

    Most of the games on this list are about a generation too early for me to really appreciate; my first systems were a Game Boy and a PS1, but I guess that's also kind of the point. For example, I really want to be able to play Zelda II because it's pretty much the only main Zelda game I haven't yet played, but as stated it just seems a bit too archaic and clunky, even compared to the first Zelda. If they followed the example of Link's side-scrolling movement in Smash Bros (which is clearly derived from Zelda II anyway), I'm sure they could make something more appealing. Also, personally, I would like to see Codemasters take a quick brake *cough* sorry, break from making annual F1 games and instead find some time to create a new Micro Machines, even if it's just a small downloadable thing. Or if they can't get the license again, just a spiritual remake of some sort? There's not an awful lot of top-down racers left and I'm sure many people still remember playing the game in the past.
  • mafyooz - August 8, 2013 11:03 a.m.

    Micro Machines would be great, when I was at university me and my housemates would be up until ridiculous hours on the Megadrive version, trying to better each others times on our favourite tracks :)
  • CitizenWolfie - August 9, 2013 4:55 a.m.

    Zelda II using Smash Bros' engine is a stroke of genius. I'd definitely buy that.
