    Default Which PC Or Arcade Games Would You Like To See Ported To Modern Consoles?

    Xbox Live, PSN and Virtual Console have gotten a fairly good amount of PC and arcade games ported this gen and overall I'm mostly satified because alot of the PC shooters I wanted to play have already been ported. But theres still a few more I'd like to see show up on modern consoles. And since my list is pretty brief I decided to also add some arcade games I'd like to see ported as well.

    PC Games

    Star Wars Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II--This is the only game in the series that never got a console release and I'd like the chance to play it along with all the other games.

    System Shock 2--This was the spiritual successor to Bioshock and thats reason enough for me to want to play it.

    Vampire: The Masquerade--Admittedly I'm not a huge rpg fan but this game has always looked interesting to me. Plus it has vampires.

    Arcade Games

    Mat Mania--I would definitely love to see a remake or update to this game. It's still my favorite arcade wrestling game to date.

    Spider-Man The Arcade Game-- I don't think this has ever been ported but either way I'd still love to see it ported to modern consoles.

    Star Wars Trilogy Arcade-- Way back in the day this was suppose to be released for the Dreamcast but that never happened and this one remained an arcade game. And now that every console has motion sensing(to handle the lightsaber duels) it would seemingly make it even easier to port this game

    So thats my list of three and three. Theres probably more but I wanted to keep these list short and narrowed down to the main games I want. So what PC/arcade games would you peeps like to see ported to 360/PS3/Wii/Wii U/PS4/Next Box?

    If they released like a Kings Quest pack where I could essentially play all the originals I would def buy it.

    I actually just finished playing Monkey Island (psn download). Probably the 4th time Ive played though it, and its always awesome.

    One arcade game I would love to see would be the light-gun gem that is Jurassic Park 3. The original utilized a sensor pad at your feet and required you to move to avoid oncoming dinosaurs and other obstacles. Maybe use Kinect for the same idea.

    Agreed. Ideally it would be great to get an updated compilation with at least slightly refined graphics. But with recent news, that probably isn't even a dream now.

    Spider-Man The Arcade Game-- I don't think this has ever been ported but either way I'd still love to see it ported to modern consoles.
    Shortly after purchasing X-Men Arcade I began hoping for the same thing.

    The Tex Murphy "Trilogy" from Origin would make a great download. Overseer was originally released on these futuristic DVDs and still looks excellent.

    I'd really like to see a console version of Unreal Tournament. I was hooked on the DC version when it first came out, then I got the PC original, which is leaps and bounds above both the DC and PS2 ports.

    The 360 versions of Quake 2 and 3 are quite good, but I miss the original soundtracks used on the PS1 and DC ports. Looks like UT is one of the few classic FPS entries that has been largely ignored.

    I would like to see a port of the original "Unreal" from 1998. I'm talking about the single player, Doom style game that started off the whole Unreal thing. I thought I heard rumors that it was coming to XBLA, but I don't think it ever did.

    I would love to see the arcade version of Battletoads on XBL. That would be an instant buy. I really want to see a port of gauntlet legends as well, though I will still argue that the N64 port is still the best version to date.

    I'm drooling for the D&D Shadows over mysteria collection coming out this summer.

    This. I have the Saturn version and though it is fun, I'd like to know what the heck is going on.

    Other ports I can think of:

    Sid Meier's Covert Action: either Wii U or 3DS.

    Oregon Trail-the non sucky revamped or over baked version

    Discs of Tron: Kinect

    My picks are all mid-to-late 90s PC games:

    Die by the Sword was a physics-based freeform medieval fantasy combat game made by Treyarch of all people. You could use the mouse to awkwardly wave your sword around in any and all directions, attempting to swing with enough force to cut enemies' limbs off. I would pay cold hard imaginary e-dollar unitpoints for the opportunity to attempt it again with something like a wiimote.

    Rocket Jockey was a game I found mostly uninteresting but for the arena mode, which was a blast. You could shoot out grappling hooks, attaching them to obstacles to clothesline opponents off from their rocket bikes, drag them behind you, fling them into walls or other opponents, etc. Any kind of tilting controller would be nice, but really I'd just like to have any kind of modern port of this game, since to my knowledge it's unplayable on any current incarnation of Windows.

    Finally, Dungeon Keeper seems like it could be a lot of fun to play on a Wii U. Using the touch screen to draw out excavation paths, or have one screen for the overview and the other for the first person view. Or even local multiplayer with one screen for the hero and one for the keeper. Plenty of interesting possibilities there I think.

    I was about to bitch mightily about the awful, awful heresies, but these particular games and lists are actually very good candidates for the ol' spit-and-shine treatment.

    Just so long as a remake doesn't include the treatment Goldeneye got when moving over to the Wii. System Shock 2, as an example, could use some work to tighten up the combat and area design, but a lot of it still holds up fairly well - cooperative play would be fairly interesting to work out. It's not exactly in the spirit of the original game, but I see it looking a bit more like Left 4 Dead after a modernization treatment.

    Edit: To add something original - I wouldn't mind seeing all the Redneck Rampage content rolled together and put out there. A lot of classic maps and scenarios that few people have seen in its entirety. Can't get too uppity to enjoy a little backwards down-home humor, right? Yep. Xatrix Entertainment! Kingpin could also do with a port or maybe even a remake - the basic idea is pretty good, execution somewhat so-so. Eh I better stop before I start rattling off totally random games.
