    not exactly a HD update but it does look better then the original :P

    Well, I would think Crysis 1 would be right up there with GTA and Skyrim, it is for me.

    Here's a link to one with pics. http://www.moddb.com/mods/blackfires-mod-ultimate

    Deus Ex is one of those games that's begging for an extensive mod/remake. As we know, the characters and story are top notch, but the technology wasn't there at the time.
    Imagine the same game with current graphics, physics engine and better AI. Mmm....

    Two words:
    Darkplaces Quake.

    Also, found a mod to improve the graphics for Hexen 2, talk about awesome. :D

    Hmmmm.... I never finished System Shock 2.

    It's probably the number 1 game sitting atop my pile of shame.
    Maybe it's time to give it another go with a new coat of paint.
