What Classic Game Most Deserves A Remake?
Remakes or basic high-definition updates can be awfully popular, especially when a classic, even timeless title is involved.
So what game do you believe most deserves a modern upgrade? What game do you think would make that transition best, and would be the most popular among its die-hard fans?
To be honest, I still have to say it's Final Fantasy VII. But, there's a huge caveat to that belief, and it's this- I'd want it done a certain way. The game must remain intact from start to finish; if Square Enix wanted to toss in a few extra scenes here and there, fine. But don't subtract and for the love of Christ, don't touch the battle system. I remain on the fence about the addition of voice actors, although I suppose they'd have to be inevitable for a true modern remake.
Supposedly, we'll get Final Fantasy X HD at some point and I loved FFX, so I'd be all over that. But FFVII has this almost mystical aura surrounding it; perhaps it's partly due to a dozen years of that remake rumor circulating but whatever the reason, I'm pretty convinced a FFVII remake would be gigantic. But there are other candidates out there, don't you think? Is there another Final Fantasy you'd like to see remade? Or what about the original Metal Gear Solid? Maybe something a little less obvious, like Dino Crisis or Gauntlet or something?
