On today’s chat bubble I’m wondering what old games you wish should be remade.
As I mention in the video, I’m not talking about games which can be played on emulators. I know, as you probably do too, that many games of yesteryear, like old games you played on an Atari, or an Amiga, or other systems, including Nintendo and Sega systems, can be downloaded and played via programs which emulate the operating systems of these retro consoles. These also allow you to play old games on your PC or mac, often using USB joysticks or similar to control the character, and they’re really great fun, if you’re a fan of old games, like me, then you should definitely check them out!
But today’s topic isn’t about emulators, it’s about old games that you wish could be dragged kicking and screaming into 2013, given a face-lift and updated with new graphics, although not necessarily altered too greatly. Mine begin, perhaps showing my age, with a couple of early 90s games. The first is Road Rash, a game where you raced motorbikes, and tried to knock other people off their motorbike with clubs. It was one I played a lot of, and it was great fun! Even though I’m not a huge fan of driving games, it was just entertaining, and somehow wasn’t quite replaced by the cheerful brutality of MarioKart!
Moving on from Road Rash, another old favourite I wish could get a 2013 rework is Zool. I found some old footage that (briefly) shows in the video, and as I mention, although I know there were several better games, I loved that little ninja! He was so cute with his little black outfit and his eyes!
As well, what currently abandoned games do you wish would get sequels? If you watch Legendary live, you might have seen in the after-show chat that I’m a huge fan of Portal. I recently played through Portal and Portal 2 again, and wish there was a portal three coming. I mention one other game in the video that I’d love to see a sequel to, but what about you?
What old games do you wish would be remade, and what do you wish would get sequels?
