Forums - Gaming Discussion - Retro Games You Want Remade/Remastered?

Remasters are, not counting remakes of last gen games, a great way of introducing new people to great video games (or at least to people who wanted the original version but didn't get to play it).

As with everything in gaming, we've had great remasters (Wind Waker HD, Crash Bandicoot N-Sane Trilogy, etc.), and awful ones (like Sonic Genesis on GBA and the Silent Hill HD Collection).

I don't mind remasters so much, but I think it's kinda lazy to do it to a game that's not even that old, like Mario Kart 8 or The Last of Us. What I'd much rather see, of course, are remasters of much older games to give them a makeover, and fix their short-comings.

Recently I heard from DidYouKnowGaming2 that Dylan Cuthbert, who programed the original Star Fox, pitched to Nintendo a remake of said game, with blocky-retro graphics and an improved frame rate. Obviously Nintendo turned it down, but I wish they hadn't.

What are some retro games that you'd like remade/remastered (I don't know the exact difference betwee remake and remaster)? :)

Again? XD

For me, I'd like to see a remake/remaster of F-Zero. It'd need to have crisper graphics, remastered music, a retro graphics option, a retro soundtrack option, 8 additional cars, and 4-player vs. mode. ^^

Donkey Kong Gameboy.

3D version of Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake.

Okami on the Switch for crying out loud.
Melee HD so that the outdated meleefags will shut up and stop complaining for once.
F-Zero GX HD (lol that name) if we're never getting a new one. I really want to play that game.
Metroid Prime Trilogy, don't want to wait until 2020 for Prime on the Switch and there's plenty they could improve.

I don't know, a lot more stuff too, I could sit here all day.

Didn't we already get one?

I'd like a remaster of EarthBound, and with a new ending that has Pokey beaten to death. ^^

A 3D remake of Terranigma would make me cry many manly tears.

And I too would like to see a remake of Jet Force Gemini. Update the graphics and make it so you won't have to save all of those thingys (forgot what they're called) in one go and I'll be first in line to throw my money at it.

Don't kill me...

Final Fantasy Mystic Quest

Sonic R

And I also want Y's Book 1 and 2 to jump into the HD era of remakes.
