Remake a Retro game!*

Do you recall all the wasted hours on the games and consoles of the past? Everything from the first Playstation and the Nintendo 64 to the NES and the Dreamcast is fair "game" here.

Please forgive the lame pun.

Remake a Retro game!*

Title says it all folks! :)
Name a title you believe is worthy of new era physics and graphics :)

My top choices are as follows

#1. Techmo Bowl
I loved this game, with it's portable football feel. upgrade the graphics and controls
and we will have a winner!

#2. Metroid
yes it's always being remade. I want to see an ultra-realistic version of this game
ala Medal of Honor/ Alien movie graphics upgrade.

#3. Mega Man
Same concept as Metroid. Winnder! even more so than metroid in some ways

#5. Legend of Zelda.
Yes Ultra-realistic ala Skyrim, awesome game play stick to the original's format.

#6. RC-ProAm
If you can make it look like RC cars and Forza Woo Woo :)


: More to follow :)

I can only think of one, the Onimusha games for the PS2. They were some of my favorite PS2 games

Love this idea.

#1 has to be Tourist trophy from the PS2. It was a motorbike racing game made by Polyphony. It had everything that Gran Tourismo does but with 2 wheels instead of 4. That definitely needs a new gen makeover.

#2 N-Gen racing from the PS1. It was a combat racing game with real world jet fighters. I put so much time in to that game

#3 RC Stunt Copter from the PS1

#4 Blast Corp from the N64. You had to use bulldozers, trucks and giant robots to destroy buildings and create a safe route for an out-of-control, Nuke-laden truck

oh wow! off the top of my head...

Contra

Marble Madness

Battletoads

Warcraft (not "World of" but the original RTS series)

Goldeneye 64 ...the remake on current gen consoles was OK... but bring back just about everything from the 64 version! then add the more realistic movement GE:Wii attempted. a dolphin dive wouldn't be bad to have either. waste no time on the klobb.

Perfect Dark - same as above.

and i guess maybe Star Fox

Silent Service! The game that got me into gaming. Man that game was hard when I was a kid. But a remake of a submarine game like that these days would probably never sell. Too much data being tossed at you at once.

I've got 2 from the Commodore 64: Airborne Rangers and Wasteland. Airborne Rangers was the first shooter game I remeber where you could use the same character for different missions and would earn medals. It had a little of everything: strategy elements, stealth, tactical sim, shooter. A really cool game that could be remade into a top notch 3rd person shooter.

And any one who remembers Wasteland knows why this game deserves (and is being Kickstarted) a new update. Classic RPG that continued into the Fallout franchise.

Retro games I would like to see return are as follows:

1. Zombies ate my neighbors
2. Earthworm Jim (Tick knows what im talking about!)
3.Golden Axe (with 4 player co-op)

After reading these I really want to do some retro gaming. Blast Corps was a crazy unique game, spent hours on it!

Final Fantasy7 anyone? Or should I stick with asking for duck hunt?
