X-Wing and Tie Fighter games would be great. Do want shiny new X-Wing Alliance remake.

Also, Freespace and Freespace 2 wouldn't be bad.

Agreed, I'll add to that Arcanum and Baldur's Gate 2: Shadow's of Amn (and Dragon Ages Origins was a decent spiritual successor to that but not even close to the same leage as BG2)

I would also say Starcraft but tbh there wasn't much Blizzard could have done better with SC2 imo, it's pure oldschool RTS like they used to be made with an updated GFX engine, which is what most fans were hoping on. There haven't been any decent oldschool RTS's recently Cool

Matter of fact its just got a new engine and some other goodies that lets it run even better and paves the way for a much prettier overall presentation. But as for the most part you play at extreme zoom levels its practically identical to the look of supreme commander when zoomed out in icon mode so its retro graphics are not even apparent.

But like minecraft its not about the eye candy but the game experience and this game has enough complexity and sheer replayability for a dozen seperate rts games. Plus the game creator puts out patches like every few days to continually refine the game and add new stuff to throw into the game map that its almost like getting a new game every month or so when he releases an official patch. Plus its super easy to get into the beta testing for official builds as it has a built in beta download button that act like the normal patching button. But like eve you need a seperate install unless you want to stick with the beta builds.

Xcom, definitely.

The original Lord of the Rings RPG game - and actually finish it too

Red Storm Rising - still IMHO the best PC game ever.

Original RTS games like C&C, same units and gameplay but with a few tweaks and modern graphics.

Sim City 4 mechanics with 2010 graphics overhaul, plus bendy roads and plots not restricted to 4 directions.

I want to make a city with as bad an infrastructure as london that actually works. Oh wait...

Planescape: Torment!

One of the best rpgs in the whole gaming history. Deserves a remake, no question about it!

Too much to think of heh

Ultima Underworld 1-2
Star Control 2

Thing is that it's not that some of nowaday's games are not as good... they just don't have the same effect as those did when they were something completely original Very Happy

X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter could do with a remake, but overall it was inferior to TIE Fighter. It had so much potential, but Lucasarts never bothered giving it a story as in depth and awesome as TIE Fighter.

I wish they would update TF completely, keep the story, gameplay, etc the same, just maek it pretty and make it run on modern pcs. Still have the collectors edition cd lying around, waiting for the day I can motivate myself to find or build a pc using old parts that will support that game.

I have never enjoyed a game as much as that one.

Amen 100% and I do also have collector edition as well. I guess all the nooblets that says "X-Wing vs Tie Fighter" for remake, never heard of "Tie Fighter." Such a shame. TF is the first thing I thought of for remake as soon as I read the OP's title.

Already in development as a reboot instead of a sequel, here's the 2009 trailer not sure if there's any more recent ones though.
