    What retro game COULD work as a new gen game?

    There have been many games being revamped from old consoles, what type of games are you dying for to be revamped and redone for new consoles and New Gen PC's?

    Kid icarus was probably one of my favorite games as a yougin', but i'm really clueless to how it could possibley be done today...

    I'm thinking a 3d tactical contra would be nice. Kind of socom: navy seals, but with funky weapons and neat creatures.

    I'm also dying for a reissue of Guardian heroes, which was on the sega saturn...the best beat` em up game EVER.


    share your ideas/dreams.

    I don't follow games too much, so I'm not sure how far Mega Man has been taken. I remember having a dream once of playing a 3D Mega Man that was totally cool; I liked the really expansive environments that I dreamed of.

    Hmmm well I stopped playing consoles at nintendo and a couple of super nintendo games so my console knowledge isnt too up to date but a few could be:

    Contra would def be sweet FPS

    Dragon Warrior: Id like it if it wasnt so anime like Final Fantasy but more along the lines of a Baldurs Gate.

    Strider: another cool game that could be given much more now

    Original Zelda: if this would be brought back as a serious RPG with a full 3D world it'd be killer

    Final Fantasy 1: My fav RPG for original nintendo. If this was made into a new RPG with the graphical equivalent of say the Max Payne 2 engine i'd pick it up in a heartbeat.

    Trying to think of others.

    i think one game that would kick ass if done right could be.......wait for it..........Kung fu, remember that? how good was that game? do it up like a mark of kri type thing.

    or

    how about that game, Mach rider now i know nobody rememebrs that game could be like a postapocaliptyic spyhunter on a motorcycle with guns or something .....or even that game from comodore 64 mission impossible "welcome! why not stay a while......stay forever HA HAHAH AHAHAHA AH!!" i could never really figure out what the game was about.....so uh.....i have no suggestions for what you could do.......but darn it would be good!

    man those were the days of video games

    The original Zelda was the first real role playing game I ever got to the end on, so I'd second that suggestion.

    Otherwise, I'd suggest Blade Runner. Even the badly pixelated version is still a blast to play, so I bet it would kick a$$ as a 32 bit 3D version...

    Not as old, but I would really love to see another Syndicate game made. Syndicate Wars kicked all arse.

    BallonFight (I'd like to see an adventure mode, a bit like the old Zeppelin)
    Exile (of course)
    Blaster Master (There's actually a PS1 version, 3D, but I haven't played it)
    Paradroid (Could be cool assimilating robots in a FPS instead of the usual weapon pickup shit)
    SuperCars II
    Quake 1 (They never followed up on the Shamblers, Vores and Fiends... all we got was the gay Stroggos)

    I'd like to see Turrican ( like the C64 version of Turrican 2 ) in 3D.
    Without puzzles ... a very straightforward third person view action game.
    More forgiving than the original ... it was a bit frustrating sometimes.
    With the cool weapons and gimmicks. Yeah I think that would rock.

    A better Syndicate would rock too. I loved walking around surrounded by huge masses of people ...
    And I loved the mix of precise weapons and heavy fire-power.
    I never played Syndicate Wars. I think I didn't like the reviews!?

    Maybe Double Dragon 3D with Oni like fights and Max Payne elements?

    Probably the games I'd really like to play exist already.
    But I don't know them.

    The GameGear Shinobi (Or "Revenge of ..."? Don't remember ... that was LOOONG AGO!) was something I did like too ...
    and I see potential there as well.

    Syndicate would rock in todays graphics. They sould keep the isometric view, and just make it higher resolution and of course improve a little on the various bug of the game.

    Remember playing that game all day when i was younger.. awsome game

    Also i think that games like Moonstone, and megalomania where awsome, and an updated version would rock

    I used to play an old mac fps way before first-person shooters even caught on. It was called Marathon. I think it was bungie's first big game and is what got them a foothold in the industry back then. Basically, you played as a loan-security officer on a giant space ship that had been built out (not on) of the Martian Moon Deimos. It goes halfway across the galaxy and of course aliens decide to invade it. It may sound like a simple premise but actually, the story and mission objectives were very original and had a lot of depth. Throughout the game, you have to contend with bad aliens, the ship's AI which has gone insane and try to do things like rescuing BOBs (poor unarmed humans which I ended up just shooting for fun) and convince certain types of aliens to betray their masters and help you.

    Marathon is still one of my favorate games to date. They made two sequels and released the editing software and to this day, you can still download maps, shapes and conversions. One cool thing they did for the sequels is getting Craig Mullins to paint all of the chapter screens. Keep in mind it's all Doom style sprites but it was still kickass.

    I'd love to see this game revived and updated to fit with modern technology. These games were way too great for their obsurity.
