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

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.

Yes that second Disc in Xenogears was flat out rushed. FFIX was the most polished of the PS1 FFs, it could be remade, but only a fresh coat of paint maybe. Somethings should be left untouched, but I wouldn't mind something like the old RE GC remakes, with redone HD backdrops and most of the processing power going to character and overworld rendering.  Honestly, I think Xenogears has the most potential.

Metal Gear Solid, without even thinking.

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?

If you only knew how much that made me laugh 😂😂😂



mZuzek loves Starfox Adventures

Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain (which would hopefully be successful enough to also allow for remakes of the Soul Reaver series as well as other sequels). The Legacy of Kain series has a wonderful story and atmosphere and I would love a modern retelling of it. I would love if it delved even deeper into the psychology of a character who is unwillingly turned into a vampire and sees himself as a monster, goes on a quest full of fun as hell power ups, combat, and puzzles to get his revenge and reverse his curse, but then watch as over time he begins to enjoy his newfound power and eventually becomes the monster he originally feared he was.



I'd say Code V, but Dino Crisis is another game I'd love to see getting a remake.

Do you mean one of the best selling RPGs from that system that still has a following until now is not a classic because some reviewers didn't like it not being Final Fantasy?

Ok then.

I picked Legend of Dragoon because I honestly think it'd worth it. That game deserves way more attention.

I said Persona 1+2 earlier on, and voted "other"..... I shoulda given the nod to Legend of Dragoon instead.



Never changed, Syphon Filter and Soul Reaver.
After that FFIX, I only put it after both because it is still gorgeous to play.
