What old game do you want a remaster of?

Post by Synsensa » Sun Oct 22, 2017 8:21 pm

In this instance, I mean a true remaster. An overhaul of the graphics, bug fixes, and possibly some feature tweaks or additions. Basically bringing an old, barely functional game to true modern standards.

My two picks:

1) Birth of the Federation -- I loved the older Star Trek games. Elite Force and Birth of the Federation will always meet my nostalgia and not leave me disappointed. The issue I keep coming up against is that they haven't aged well, especially BotF. A real remaster of BotF would excite me greatly even though I know it'll never happen.

2) Knights of the Old Republic -- It's a cliche answer but one I agree with. The KOTOR series is the best Star Wars game franchise right up there with Jedi Knight. Since the series is dead and SWTOR retconned a lot of stuff and then made up really bad continuations (I'm looking at you, Revan), I'd probably prefer a full remaster of the KOTOR series instead of a new sequel. The games don't run very well and could do with a significant face lift.

The original Age of Empires! In fact they recently announced aoeIV, so I may be in luck!

Master of Magic, definitely. I've been waiting for this for years and years.

I'd like to see a remake of the old SSI "Gold Box" D&D games, like "Pool of Radiance", "Curse of the Azure Bonds", etc. Updated graphics and sound, maybe some new content. That would be nice. I really enjoyed the originals when I was young and would love to play them again with improvements.

KOTOR is a good choice. The indie remake mod being made is converting it to an FPS so I dunno how to feel about it.

Morrowind maybe just because the mods that bring it into newer engines are finnicky.

Warcraft 3 getting an HD treatment like StarCraft would be cool.

Zany Golf. I got this game with my old Amiga 500 and have never found an acceptable substitute for the PC.

Ditto the old Infocom games. I never made it off Earth in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy game. There was always some step I didn't do right...

Oops, that's a TV series. Sorry if I made anyone cry.

I heard talk once of a Firefly reboot. But I'd be disappointed in having it done with a different cast.
