My god man. Since ccp is into the alternative fantasy market ala WoD then wtf are they doing letting a massive profitable venture like updating master of magic to the modern realm of computers and general game players go to waste?!?!?!?!?! FFS the original dos game as long as you can find the patch is light years ahead of literally any other tbs game out there including the wonderful but rather basic might and magic 3.

Lords of Midnight-Spectrum.
Raid on Bungling Bay-C-64.
Spy vs Spy-C64.
Balance of Power-Atari ST.
Midwinter-Atari ST.

For the PC there's quite a few but for now Alpha Centauri would be nice, be interesting to see what they could do with descent now as well, as has been said X-Com is crying out for decent remake, also good to see Shogun Total War 2 is coming.

Good Call !!! Epic Sensible Software release. Could you liken BFBC series to this ?

X Wing v Tie Fighter would be awesome and actually would really suit console gaming. In fact it makes so much sense its almost a tragedy.

Mmmmmm - ill also go for Wings (that was the one where you could dogfight any era aircraft against each other right ?)

I would love to see The Mercenary Series again.. I lost so many hours to these games it's not even funny!

I still play them on C64 and Amiga emulators, but having them updated for the modern PC would be fantastic!

Also, to a lesser extent, Millenium 2.2 and Deuteros.

And I can't believe nobody has mentioned the one that started it all...

EDIT: Reading fail.. somebody did mention Elite.. I should probably read the whole thread first lol

Hope to God they don't turn it into Europa Bloody Boringalles though. Confused

Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri.

Hell yeah. They mentioned asking Sid about that on Kotaku before an interview with him, but to my dismay it never came up.

EA holds the rights to Alpha Centauri, not Sid Meier, as such it's not his descision to remake the game or not, even though he would love to do so.

Ah ...

I'm afraid a lot of the games or game types I'd like to see revived ... will never happen. They just don't appeal to a broad enough audience. There was a point in time when there were a lot of these titles - back when only nerds owned computers. But - with the swing to more popular games ... that would appeal to the general public ... these things disappeared, or became niche games you really had to search for.

Mostly, they were tactical and strategic military games based on old board games, flight sims, Naval War Games and such.

Steel Panthers
Utah Beach
Burning Steel

Even a shooter like Planetside ... actually has limited appeal - specifically because it was about more than just mindlessly shooting each other. It was as much the players as SOE that ruined that game.

X-COM 1 & 2, maybe 3. Seriously just do it. Even now it gets in the top 100s of best games lists. I still occasionally fire up DOSbox for these little gems.

System Shock 1. "Welcome to my death machine interloper".

DooM/DooM II with decent graphics and the ability to look up. Oh wait...

Frontier Elite II. How is it that even now there isnt another game where u can seamlessly fly from one planet to another and land on the surface? The whole galaxy on a single floppy. Extra points for an MMO version. Twisted Evil (yes i know about infinity)

Eve Online ShockedTwisted EvilYARRRR!!

EDIT: to the people saying star control II, check this out.
