    Ah, the 80's, i sure as hell wasn't born in them, but the games from back then have really played a part in my game taste today. I play allot of ROMs on my Emulator, and i start to play a game and think, "man, this game made today would be great, or, this could be redone, but way better". Well, not that it would ever happen, or maybe it would, what games from back in the day would you like to see reborn? Is it your favorite NES game, or maybe your favorite Atari game? Who knows, but would you like to see it again?

    That simple, so i will start.

    I would like to see the game "Demon Sword" remade on the XBOX 360 console, it was a fairly fun game for the NES system, fast paced, neat enemys, killer boss battles, etc.

    I would like to see this one redone by Team Ninja, i heard something about they might not be around to much longer, but if they were to stick around, they could maybe put a neat, bloody, bigger, twist on this game.
    As far as i know, there hasn't been a reincarnation of this game, but i could be wrong.

    This, Kid Icarus, Jazz Jackrabbit, and Guardian Legend. Would say Power Blade or Shatterhand, but those would probably turn out to be awful.

    I'd like to see a sequel to Metafight rather than Blaster Master for a change though.

    Bionic Commando already got a remake and a new game. What what?

    Altered Beast too.

    Technically Double Dragon did too, but fuck handhelds.

    First place on the "why isn't there a modern remake/sequel?" list is Actraiser. I could write pages on what I've imagined a new Actraiser could be. Second is the original Phantasy Star series as a whole, not counting Online/Universe/Portable/Zero because they're not proper RPGs.

    Slightly lower on the list: Crystalis, Destiny of an Emperor, Guardian Legend, Blaster Master, Magic of Scheherazade, River City Ransom, Gargoyle's Quest, Wonder Boy III, and, heretical though it may be, I'd like to see a new side-scrolling Zelda similar to Zelda II. A new, non-terrible, mainline single-player Ultima game would also be pretty keen.

    Comedy option: Hydlide.

    Hell yeah to River City Ransom and a sidescrolling zelda.
    I actually have tried to make a sidescrolling zelda type game before, but game programing isnt easy, and that was a bit to big of a game for me to tackle just yet.

    Tecmo Bowl but with real NFL rosters (yeah I know Madden has exclusive NFL rights, and I love that game as well). Not that junk that came out on the DS last year.
