All These Classic Remakes, What's Next?
We're seeing a lot of old classics get the high-definition treatment. And I ain't complaining.
There's the recently released DuckTales Remastered, and you'll soon see Castle of Illusion HD. And these are only the most recent examples. So, what's next on the list? What classic title do you want to see redone?
Personally, I want a high-def iteration of Mutant League Football, one of the most entertaining and under-appreciated video games of all time. If they do an update, they really need to add some gore, too; you know, a bit of blood and guts whenever one of the players bites the dust. And maybe they could toss in a few more interesting booby traps on the field; remember accidentally discovering land mines and stuff like that? It was just so much fun and the fact that it played a little like Madden sold it for me. I played the hell out of that game!
I also want to see a true HD remake of Rygar. I know they did a new version (Rygar: The Legendary Adventure) back in the early PS2 days, but I want a high-def overhaul of the original 2D side-scroller. That game was one of the first that actually made me love side-scrollers; it had such great style. Come to think of it, I also want a remake of Earl Weaver's Baseball; I remember playing entire seasons on my old IBM/Tandy. The computer could barely run it, but that was half the fun! I totally mastered that game, too, and I'd love to see it return. Might be too old, though.
What's on your remake list?
