old games that SHOULD have a remake (270)

1 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2006-09-04 00:13 ID:saZ2CZH8

We all know that lately game companies are running out of/too lazy to come up with original ideas for games and have been chugging remakes and sequels.

I say they should remake Super Smash TV

ugh, sorry never mind. i read like ass.

As much as I love the Wild ARMs series, the first one really really sucked in my opinion. It has nothing to do with the graphics, I can play games with bad graphics. I can't even remember why I didn't like the game, I just remember hating it to no end.

However, for some reason I believe that had I played the remake instead, I probably would haveenjoyed it more. I personally haven't played Alter Code F, but something about it makes me want to play it, despite hating the original.

i say earthbound cause of it song i love it but didnt understand the story

226 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2009-05-08 14:25 ID:5PCq+VJL

...Well, sometimes moving from place to place might not have been obvious, but the overall story should have been pretty easy to figure out.

Anyway, I would like a remake for Earthbound as well, but I'm afraid that it might lose it's charm. - especially considering that they can't even release it to VC because of all the songs/references/audio samples they didn't pay for and don't want to get sued for NOW in this litigious society.

The Tales series...

I'm all for a Master of magic remake. I still have the old floppy disk around here somewhere... but I thought Master of Orion was the remake for master of magic. Still it would be nice to see it up and running on modern standard.

I'll have alot of arguements against this, but most definitly Halo 1, and 2 they were good games with good story lines. But the graphics were lousy, and add the Halo 3 weapons,equipment, and better physics.

231 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2009-08-30 05:17 ID:Heaven

Truck of fail.

That said, I'd play a revamped Deus Ex any day.

232 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2009-08-31 02:20 ID:koBdtB1Z


Ever played Age of Wonder? It had similar gameplay, and is considered a sort of spiritual sequel by fans.

Lords of Magic was of similar vein, though the combat system was more of a RTS system.

And Disciples is similar, except its battle which is more RPG based.

Each of the games I listed are fun, but yeah, a real honest-to-goodness remake of Master of Magic would definitely be fuckwin!

AoW II was an awesome game and is still located on my hard drive to this day. It featured "parallel turn mode" for LAN multiplayer, which was at the same time hilarious, strategic and fun. Basically it was still turn-based except all the turns happened at once, and the first to react were the first served, so you had to pick in which order you'd give your orders VERY carefully. I once had a battle of portal locks/dispels until mana exhaustion so the guy couldn't come out of the dark world with his gazillion troops stocked one portal and 6 squares away from my main town. Then I managed to smuggle an upgraded dragon across the ocean and burnt 4 of his main cities before he could even react. One of my best memories of multiplayer games of that style, and I'm a huge HoMM fan.

Lately I'm having constant urges to play Might & Magic VI again. But I think I'm going to be too disappointed by its graphics which in my memories aren't so bad.

Dungeon Keeper!

Carmageddon, the original games made by stainless were insanely awesome.

See its the graphics that make me want to play the games every now and then.

240 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2009-12-31 07:13 ID:OixVIWqp

Rainbow Six 3 PC

It has awful AI. And that's a HUGE problem considering that it's such a huge part of the game (it is squad based after all... if it was just a solo shooter, like halo, it wouldn't really matter to me, but in R6 you kinda need good friendly AI).

UBI Just fucked it all up. And they made it so hard to mod, there's barely any community for the game (R63 would have been massively improved by the mod community if Ubi hadn't taken a dump on UE2).

Quest 64!

I'm playing a ROM of the game now, fun shit.

the music of the overworld is easy to get stuck in your head. and then it WON'T GET OUT

243 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2010-01-20 01:01 ID:ZT5wi4nz

I would really like to see a version of the first and second SC's remade with the Chaos Theory formula (with waaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyy amped up ai and difficulty/map and gameplay complexity though)... but that's just a day dream I guess.

I remember that there was a custom map of Smash TV on Warcraft III I played before.

245 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2010-02-10 19:00 ID:DlML+aco


Ordnance mod is coming out (eventually).

And RVS: Mercenary 2.

246 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2010-02-17 14:48 ID:lNna5ck3

Metroid 1, using the Prime engine.
I know they already remade it, but I think it'd be so much better in the Prime engine.

247 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2010-03-16 01:55 ID:0Gxjgz0J

I've got a huge list on this.

MechWarrior (any of the series, but I lean towards the 4th)

Killing Floor (I know, I know is recent. But it would look sweet on the Unreal Engine 3)

Half Life 1 (HL: Source doesn't count, and Black Mesa Source is pretty much vaporware, so I'm putting it here)

Quake 1 (honest to god remake, not a graphical mod)

It's posts like this that make me imagine everyone on the internet screaming into their computer as they post on anonymous discussion boards.

Not necessarily a remake, a sequel would be fine too.

Bio Menace. I always thought Snake was a much cooler character than Duke, but we never got any more of him.

How about an update of Hideo Kojima's "Snatcher"?

259 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2010-07-25 09:48 ID:p0vx/2Pp

I'd kill for a HD Remake, or sequel to, either Snatcher or Policenauts. Then again, that probably won't happen unless Kojima and Konami get bored of riding the Metal Gear Solid gravy train.

Chrono Trigger was remade for the DS some time ago.

261 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2010-08-12 03:25 ID:2iu7IQ8t

A Metroid Prime-like Mega Man X, with less auto-aim and more difficult enemies.

Atomic Runner (Chelnov)

I would like to do this in 3d & Full-HD.

263 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2010-08-22 05:59 ID:H7+6/LIe

These days, many Japanese games are remade even though
Many people hate those remade games.
I am also sick of them.
It seems they remake games in order to get more money easily.

There are still many games that we cannot buy now except for
Japanese games.

I rather prefer buying those masterpieces even if they are just resale.

that's important thing, so I said twice...

266 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2010-08-31 01:18 ID:IGlUiDAm


haha, cute.

I think that remaking games isn't necessarily a bad thing, as there are many cool old game that you can't play anymore, but if they're just remaking them for money then yes, that sucks.

267 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2010-09-04 21:15 ID:0zoDxSYq

I'd rather have an honest-to-God remake. Not just a port to a different system. Basically I want the same game on a new/updated engine.

Lotus 3. In a nutshell, it's a auto racing game which is practically impossible to lose. I always found it beautiful and relaxing.
