Post the game you wish would get a modern remake.

My top 2:

The Wing Commander series

The X-Wing vs.Tie Fighter set of games.

The original X-Com is in dire need of a professional remake.

I agree about your top two picks

Third would be actually finishing Freespace 3.

Seriously, explain why the Shivans just OMGWTFBBQed that star.
Show whats happened to earth after it was isolated.
Etc Etc

One other game that was kick-ass when it first came out is the original System Shock.

I would love to see that one out again with modern 3d graphics.

good games that get remade tend to not be good.

See: the pile of filth they are calling the new x-com game.


with that said, x-wing vs tie fighter wasn't that good.. it was just way before its time

make it like dust... but uh.. in space.

60 vs 60 or so, massive combat areas, player commanders in capital ships

Yeah, that's so different from the original it doesn't even count as a remake.

For anyone interested, there are some amateur 'spiritual successors' to the original X-Com which aren't that bad. This is probably the best, and it's free and open source.

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

Hell yes, that'd be fun (your other suggestions are A+ as well).


I also want a remake of Moonstone with fewer bugs but more ultra-violence and hilarious ways to die. Twisted Evil

Heard a rumour a while back that the old farts from Bullfrog wouldn't mind making a new Syndicate game, that would be sweet too.

edit: Street Rod!

Why has no one mentioned elite yet?

What I'd like to see is a space trading game where people fight over a player driven economy, kinda like elite but re-made in an mmorpg style where you could build your own empires and conquer solar systems...

No, PSX. It was great! Rooftop level, Katanas/Longswords = EPIC SAMURAI DUELS.

And of course, the cursing afterwardsVery Happy "Your joypad suck! I AM SURE I BLOCKED FIRST FUUUUU"

OMG. Memories.


edit: Oh, and BB2 was even better imo. The gay guy with the revolver tilted me hard though. "Wouuuu HA HA HA HA WOUUUU" /slash SHUTUP
