    Default THIS GAME Needs to be Remade for Modern Consoles - Nomination Time

    We're going to have a little opinion contest/survey/tourney. As the title says it is called "THIS GAME Needs to be Remade for Modern Consoles" or TGNRMC for short.

    How the nomination period works: People will nominate games for consideration. Each nomination needs a description pleading the case of what the game is and why it needs a remake for modern consoles including some of the improvements. Nominations may include concept art to help try to "sell" the idea but it is not required.

    How the tourney period works: Two games will go mano-a-mano per thread with people voting for their favorite. The winners of each bracket will face off against the other winners in the following brackets until only the winning "champion game" remains.

    The rules: One nomination entry per person. Nominations must be 128 words or less. Only the first 16 nominations will be accepted. Duplicate nominations will be discarded with only the first nomination per game taken. There will be one tourney match per day until a final winner is decided. All "champion games" are ineligible for future "THIS GAME Needs to be Remade" tournaments.

    -----

    This thread is for game nominations. Please reply to the thread now to nominate your favorites! Time is ticking!

    Space Harrier. It could be closer to Planet Harriers in graphics, and I'd like to see the P Dragoon-style 'total cockpit' gameplay with that kind of speed. The dragons could make coils around you, fly past you... perhaps even allow you to actually control your course, so you would have to chase things down tight corridors and like like. The speed of the original needs to be present, but amped way up. Different weapons, armor, levels... A lot of what we saw in Planet, but in a DVD case instead of the garage. And of course, Online Multiplayer.

    Kung-Fu Master (or Kung-Fu for the NES). The game is timeless. Freshen up the graphics a bit, do a few different takes on the theme song, create new enemies, throw in some characters other than Thomas (maybe a few video game celebrity guest appearances ala SMB Crossover), add a bonus game or two, and I think the game would pop.

    I think a sequel or remake of Metal Storm (NES) could kick all kinds of ass.

    Double Dragon needs to be remade, and soon. I know we got Double Dragon Advance, but a true next-gen beat-em up with HD graphics would be amazing. It could be hybrid 2D and 3D stages, have an 80's-inspired videogame soundtrack. Add in a few special moves, and you could have a classic on your hands.

    Much like Pac-Man Championship Edition, this could bring back great memories and give us a brand-new game to enjoy.

    Robowarrior / Bomber King desperately needs a modern remake. It could even just be remade with the same old school play style, making it a good candidate for a downloadable re-imagining. The single player mode in Bomberman games sucks, Robowarrior was the spin off that aimed to change that. I've always thought the game would have done far better as an arcade title than on the NES and a modern remake would open the floodgates for online achievements, levels with multiple exits, maybe even a level editor. Although it did have a GB sequel, Bomber King: Scenario 2 (released in the US as Blaster Master Boy), either a remake or third game is something we need.

    For the box art, something along the lines of the Famicom box art would even be fine...

    I think I am the only one in this world that thinks this. But I feel Zombies Ate My Neighbors needs a remake.
    Bring it up to fps status. 2nd person. 3rd person whatever.. Full 3d nice graphics. I personally have been told I am crazy for it but I could actually see it being a serious game vs the comedy style game even though I know thats what made the original a classic. But come on who wouldn't want a level where your creeping along a hedge maze and then all sudden some maniac with a chainsaw just cuts right through and chasing you and when you think hes alone another cuts you off and you get that feeling of "shit what do I do?!?!?!"
    Or out running giant sand worms (tremors style).
    Only thing that would have to go is the giant baby. Outside of that do it up.

    With today's graphical capabilities, living the everyday life of Ryo could be more real than ever before.

    I would like to see maybe a new Wizards and Warriors or Kid Icarus. I was hoping for them on the SNES, but it never happened.

    The main reason is explained well by The Angry Video Game Nerd. Just watch his video on the game. It's a crazy beat 'em up game with unique ideas for enemy choices and would have made a great Neo Geo game. We need this game because it was only released in small quantities and was never made available on a home console.

    I'm a collector, but only to a certain extent.
    Not as extreme as Rickstilwell though.[/quote]

    I would also add that if you really want to play an RCR "sorta" remake, check out Scott Pilgrim. That game rocks.

    Herzog Zwei for sure! Flying around a battle field in a jet that transforms into a mech to do battle against tanks and guns would be pretty cool.

    Damn right! Where the hell is it anyway? It should have been out on Wiiware in Japan by now. Anyone who reads Japanese know anything?
