Don’t know if anyone has said it, but I think the Legacy of Kain games could use a remaster. Maybe not a full on Reboot, but definitely a remaster. Love those games.

Wonder how hard it would be to do AI up scaling like they have been doing with hexen and ff…

Interstate '76 (Activision 1997) is basically MechWarrior in Mad Max cars with a funky disco soundtrack.

Believe it or not I used to play online multiplayer on AOL dial-up. LOVE LOVE LOVE that game and still have the CD’s. Too bad it won’t run right on newer PC’s.

Syndicate - The RTS one, not the FPS
No one lives forever - Please?
Deus Ex - The modern ones are ok-ish but the original 2 are completely different games.

I know there’s not Criterion and EA backing this team of developers anymore, but this game did really hurt my soul. Car’s dynamics look weird (sometimes darts where you want it, sometimes just don’t turn at all), graphics look like out of Burnout 2 at best, menu’s from a 90’s indie developer that invested two hours a day into his/her game, the cars look weightless I liked better the weights in Paradise because it mattered whether you hit a small car or a big truck.
I don’t like to rag on small developers, I’m sure they did the best they could with what they had. But can’t compare to other games of the franchise in my opinion.

Haven’t played it yet, a likely won’t because it can’t be had outside of EPIC store. So over all a huge shame.

1994 Xcom UFO defense. There have been sequels, spin offs and so-called reboots but I want a true to spirit of the original reboot.

Oh snap, heck yeah would be awesome to have a major effort behind a B5 game.

but in general probably a bunch of games from the transitionary phase between 2d>3d, in that many of them like shadowman which you can get on gog(if its just modded for compatibility from the original pc version) has terrible controls and just ruins in some cases good content, art music story

but alot of console exclusives in general from consoles of the ps1/n64 era and earlier in general with having limited controller input, have dumbed down/not nearly as good of gameplay as a modern pc or even console game, once given dual analog sticks etc some older computer games, gothic, gothic 2, thief 1-2

atleast for games which could legitimately be improved fairly easily in gameplay/overall, not just rereleased with better graphics

probably a bunch of gameboy advanced games, sega genesis, snes would make good 4.99-9.99 indie ‘retro’ titles, phone games ex: some kinda golden sun + golden sun the lost age ultra 4k hd 9.99$

edit: to give specific examples of weird controls

in gothic(1) it is so pedantic that you have separate keys bound to place an item from an inventory you are looking at(like a chest/looting a corpse/trading) into your inventory, and another key to move an item from your inventory into the external one which cant be the same keys as any other key

in shadowman, you cant strafe until you lock onto a target, and then you can only strafe around the target in a circle otherwise a/d or left and right would just be to turn/look left and right, which get replaced with strafing when you lock on. that not being able to side step is not very useful in combat with multiple enemies which run at you fairly rapidly

or say in goldeneye where forward and back is to run forward and back, where if you use perfect dark you can configure the controls to be the stick does all the aiming, and the c pad is for running forward and back, and strafing which is fairly similar to more modern titles other than the location of the stick vs the pad

The menu is the exact menu of Burnout 3 Takedown.

Does the game have that gamemode where you need to crash into traffic to destroy as much as possible?

Not a reboot but check out Wreckfest. It does this pretty good. Though not cheap right now.
