Games that should get re-released/HD remakes.

I'm interested in writing an article on this topic, so I thought I would look to the x360a community for inspiration.

With a whole slew of HD remakes either coming out shortly, like Beyond Good & Evil HD, what games would you like to see either get the HD overhaul, or at the very least be released in some capacity, whether it is XBLA (or PSN) or retail.

For me, I think the biggest games I would love to see redone in HD are Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1/2. A good way for Activision to see people want to old style Tony Hawk games, and not this Ride/Shred bullshit, is to release the original games again. At the very least, release Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2X as an Xbox Original (the service hasn't had an update since Sept. 09) and the original two games as PSOne Classics. I'd prefer them to be XBLA titles so I could get achievements, but I'd mostly just like to play some classic Pro Skater.

I can't think of too many others off the top of my head, which is why I'd like to see what you guys have to say.

I would love to see The Legend of Dragoon remade.. hell, I don't even care about improved graphics, I just want to see them fix the damn script. Terrible translations tend to deter slightly from an amazing game but I still love it nonetheless.

Then the Gamecube/Wii is your best friend. They have remakes for both Resident Evil AND Metal Gear Solid.

This is actually the main reason I'm so upset about getting rid of my Wii and all my Gamecube games.

Agree with a lot of those lol

Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic 2 =/ lot of content that was unfinished or not added due to not having enough time. It was great but it could have been even better with the finished content so that there would have been more gameplay and fixing the bugs that populated the game lol I'd be very happy if there was a remake/re-release for it =) heck even the first one so i can play it again =D (with new content and stuff if re-released)

Although I'd probably be happier with just a continuation of it (story-wise) lol

I have a feeling that it'll happen, one day. You know Square Enix loves money. I wouldn't put it past them to try to add something special and "make it better", like, say, Aerith doesn't die, or something equally retarded.

The first 4 resident evil games in glorious HD technicolor would certainly keep me entertained for a few hours

I'd still like a SNES collection in the same style that the Mega Drive collection that was released a few years back. Image Zelda, Super Mario World, Street Fighter 2 Turbo and Metroid in beautiful HD.

Makes me all pointy

Havent played it... but looks like I won't even play a remake since you've just ruined everything! JK, but some people might mind, you may want to give a plot spoiler warning.

I think when something has been out for nearly 14 years it's OK to spoil it.

See, I don't want to include Final Fantasy VII on this list because that would be a REMAKE, and that's something else altogether. I'm talking more along the lines of what they did with Beyond Good & Evil. Change nothing about the game, just update the graphics and engine a little bit. Other examples include Earthworm Jim HD, Serious Sam HD, Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix, etc.

However, a game doesn't haven't to be redone to fit the criteria of the question. It could also just be rereleased. Going back to Final Fantasy VII, it is available as a PSOne Classic on PS3, as are a lot of other amazing PSX games. That's why I would be OK with seeing THPS rereleased as a PSOne Classic (or THPS2X as an Xbox Original). These are far more likely as the development time would be cut dramatically.

Now, in regards to the FF7 remake, I read an article stating that the reason they can't make it, and the reason that FF13 was too linear, was because it would take several more years of development to create a larger story. Essentially, they are too focused on making it pretty than making it good. Fuckin' Japs, eh?

Yeah, but all i want is the game on 360 with achievements and maybe updated graphics.

If they change anything to do with the story/ gameplay then they'll be sorry.

I would put baldurs gate/ planescape torment on the list but i've recently played them through again and the dated graphics don't seem to hurt games that awesome much.

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1, 2, or 3 on the XBLA would be amazing, I would easily pay 1200 MSP for any of them.

On-topic, I'd love an upgraded Jade Empire (having discussed this in class today, and read about a rumoured sequel for the 360) and an upgraded Knights of the Old Republic I and II, to coincide with the release of The Old Republic.

That's why those words were said with a sarcastic and comical tone. I've nothing against Japanese people, but they do tend to focus more on visuals than gameplay these days.

A big thing for me when thinking about what games I want to be redone/rereleased is knowing that if they aren't then I may never get to play them again, or it might be rather expensive to do so. For instance, I've been wanting to go back and play Eternal Darkness (which, now that Silicon Knights is done with that Too Human bullshit can get to working on the sequel). I'm not sure if Nintendo owns the right to the franchise or if SK does, but either way I'd love to see it again.

Still, I suggest reading up on the term "Jap" before using it on a forum that people from every race and every country do read. During and after World War II, the term became derogatory. It's an ethnic slur and it's offensive, regardless of context or intent.

If I didn't know the history of the word, I wouldn't have used it. That's the point.

And I disagree about it being offensive no matter the context. I meant no offense by it, so no offense should be taken. In the same sense, if I suddenly decide to start using the word jabberwocky as an insult to forum goers with a stick up their ass, it doesn't make Lewis Carroll an asshole.

If we're done with the English lesson, can we please refrain from that discussion?
