If you love gaming, there’s probably more than one game that you wish had been better, more loved, or had just been updated instead of dying out. Below are 15 that these serious gamers wish would come back after a revamp.
#15. Just a graphic update.
“Battle for Middle Earth games. Both. Don’t change everything just a Graphic update. Sad thing this will never happen, those games are no longer supported and you can only play a pirate version of them. I would love to see them suported in a gaming platform like Steam, Origin or whatever…”
#14. A whole other level of experience.
“Vampire The Masquerade: Bloodlines. Seriously, it’s a whole other level of experience. I know nostalgia plays a huge part and all that, but I think a remaster with just a few quality of life adjustments would give this game the chance to shine. I wish a remake would be announced someday, but I really don’t know what’s up with the rights and all that.”
#13. The franchise roots.
“I’d love to play the original Deus Ex in the engine of Mankind Divided.
Human Revolution is such an excellent game and it’s always made me want to experience the franchise’ roots.”
#12. Two picks.
“1st pick: Legends of Dragoon
2nd pick: Arc the Lad: Twilight of the Spirits.”
#11. A bit clunky.
This hack n’ slash epic had an anarchic sense of humor and was billed as the spiritual sequel to Ghosts n’ Goblins with a Tim Burton-esque aesthetic to it. You play the skeletal Dan Fortesque, a failed hero of an ancient kingdom, who is brought back to life by powerful sorcery and is now out to rightfully become a hero. It was beautiful and fun but the camera angles were a mess and controls were sometimes a bit clunky.”
“Burnout 3 takedown.
Ffs gimme, and on pc too this time please.”
#9. Imagine those sprites.
“Super Mario RPG
Imagine those sprites at high resolution.”
#8. All it really needs.
“The original Star Wars Battlefront 2. All it REALLY needs is better ai behavior and scripting.”
#7. In VR.
“Black & white. In VR. Let me use my actual hand to pick up people (and throw them around) and cast spells by tracing shapes.
#6. A proper Thief game.
“Thief 1 & 2. I’d play the hell out of those, and no one seems to be able to do a proper Thief game now.”
#5. I was so sad.
I was so sad.”
#4. Best Star Wars game ever made.
“Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy.
Best Star Wars game ever made.”
#3. Perfect the way it is.
“Castlevania: Symphony of the Night
Hand-drawn HD sprites and backgrounds. 4k/widescreen support. Weapon/equipment/enemy collection and gallery. Restored content from Sega Saturn version.
Soundtrack to remain untouched, though. It is perfect the way it is.”
#2. Compared to today.
“Timesplitters: Futures perfect. The controls are just bad compared to today. Like that is all they need to fix.”
#1. Overhauled completely.
“I’d like a Goldeneye remake, not remaster as the controls and mechanics need overhauled completely.”
Which would you add to the list?
