Suikoden 2 or Chrono Trigger may be at the top of my list.
But from the poll, probably Final Fantasy 8. It already got a remaster, but a remake in the same vein as FF7R would be great.

Oh. So we're doing THAT, eh? Well then I chose my favorite racing game of that era. Rollcage II.

Other is listed in the options. :P

Rollcage is another Psygnosis game, not sure if Sony got the rights to that one however. Did you play the spiritual successor? 'Grip'?

I forgot that game came out! Never played it. Gonna have to rectify that.

Final Fantasy IX, for sure. But just update the graphics, no full overhaul.

Final Fantasy IX
Xenogears

Those would be my two choices. Brad will attack me for this, but Legend of Dragoon is no classic. The game was pedestrianly received during its hey day, and it still boggles my mind that it gained a loud cult following in the following decades lol



I'd go for Metal Gear Solid as my main option.

I'd be okay with Syphon Filter as long as the gameplay is changed.

Also another game that needs to be remade is Driver. It'll prove to be really hard to make four sizable cities to fit all the missions and not make them look small.

THIS! Touted as a "Final Fantasy Killer" I was really underwhelmed by everything except the graphics and music. Most of all, the story and characters. Translation was appalling. But hey, if others enjoyed it, that's great...I just wonder how many younger people just heard it was good and latched on to that.

Yes, I agree. The game had high production values, but it was lacking in several areas, including story, and a terrible Overworld design. The  combat was okay. I felt it was an average RPG with a great coat of paint. Inspired mostly by FF sales, than by what actually made FF great. I remember EGM, one of the reviewers even handed he game a 5.5 score. It was really an average JRPG at the time, this was further reinforced by contemporary releases of Chrono Cross and FFIX. I feel most of its fans never really got to play most of the RPGs of the era.

Yeah, I don't get it either. It's very run of the mill in what I played. Perfectly mediocre JRPG. Xenogears and FFIX are really fine examples of the genre. Xenogears is incomplete and a remake could complete it. I can see an argument FFIX maybe doesn't fully need it. Xenogears I believe does.



Bite my shiny metal cockpit!

LoD, Syphon Filter or Twisted Metal.

I feel like these games would address current holes in the SIE portfolio.

I didn't want to say metal Gear but I said Metal Gear. The GameCube remake... Pretty underwhelming.

There's a fan remake of the opening of MGS using Unreal that made me jizz myself. Footage is on YouTube.

... There's footage of you jizzing yourself on YouTube?
