Remakes/Sequals that NEED to me made!

#1 Posted by smitherean (217 posts) -

In honour of this fanboy's dream apparently coming true, what other old-school games do you think really need a reboot/sequal/remake? The top of my list would be Alpha Centauri - that game had so much atmosphere build into a hybrid 2D-3D Civilization clone it was unbelievable. I still dust it off to play every now and then.

Shiny's MDK 1

then I'd say Dreamweb from the old DOS-era

assuming it's about remakes (not sequels) I'd say Sindycate would ne nice too

Just to name a few

 

Planescape: Torment

The Longest Journey

Star Control

Starflight

Master of Orion

Torment, you say? I think that game could hardly brook improvement. However, I have heard that these fellows want to do that one next.

They're adding content too right?

If so I'm even more pumped to replay Torment.

Actualy these guys are thinking not only of doing Planetscape torment, but also Baldurs gate 3 if the enchanced edition does well.

- vampire the masquerade bloodlines (based on it, there wasn`t a single good rpg about vampires since this one)

- dungeon keeper

- mirrors edge

- europa universalis ( it`s in production :) )

- arcanum

- KOTOR

- next Fallout (i`m addicted to it since 1997 :D, only F3 was quite poor, but NV was incredible)

Mirror's Edge? Puzzled by this one...

All the others are great choices. I would add in there the original Deus Ex and the first two Thiefs.

EDIT: and both System Shocks!

I aggree with all the games people posted before, I'm glad there are still gamers with taste

i would still play master of orion/alpha centauri if the graphics were at least 2005 level

btw I recommend the arcanum soundtrack to everyone, just got it recently and it is amazing. I still remember when I heard it the first time, my legs were jelly

I always wanted to see an updated remake of the very first Quake. There was a project using the quake 4 engine and graphics as a mod for quake 4 that remade the first Quake with modern graphics...but the project died.

I have always wanted to see an enhanced remake of the original Last Ninja on the C64.

I always felt that the first two Fallout games would work amazingly well with touchscreen devices, considering it's turn based and you pretty much only used the mouse to play the games anyway. Hopefully Bethesda (or whoever owns the rights to Fallout 1 and 2) could do a remake of the games for iOS/Android, and a compatible version for current operating systems.

Was I just a fool for loving it so much? I never see any love for the Dale...
