We may not be getting a modern revamp for the foreseeable future, but nothing can stop you from picking up the beautiful, original and very classic Giants: Citzen Kabuto from GOG for the price of free.
It's not a permanent deal obviously -- if you want to take advantage of it you'll need to create a GOG account (if you don't already have one) and make your "purchase" within the next 35 hours.
After that, the Planet Moon Studios title will be yours. Sure, it's a little old looking, but there's something about the art direction and colours that makes it timeless, in a way.
Actually, I think what I remember most about it was that it used "hardware transform and lighting", back when I had no idea what those features specifically meant. It was almost as pants-wetting as Morrowind's pixel-shaded water.
