What Game Do You Most Want Remastered?

Image: Square Enix

E3 is almost here and if there's one thing we can count on, it's that a number of the games announced this year will be remakes, remasters and reboots of old games. So what game do you really want to be next up on the remake block?

For me, there's only one real answer: Star Wars Episode 1: Racer, AKA Podracer.

Revisiting The Best Thing That Came Out Of The Phantom Menace

Yes, I'm talking about Star Wars Episode I. Racer, the game that took one of the most pointless scenes in any Star Wars film and turned it into an incredibly successful racing game on PC and the Nintendo 64. With all the Star Wars excitement I recently decided to go back and watch the prequels again. They were just as bad as I remembered, though it did inspire me to dig out my dusty N64 and rediscover what made this game great.

Just imagine this incredible high-speed racing game in HD! Imagine what could be done with all the alien planets and gorgeous environments. You could even get rid of whiny baby Anakin and call it an improvement!

    Interstate 76

      Not sure a remaster would help it or hurt it, but I'd love to see it.

    Wings (Amiga 500)
    Omikron: The Nomad Soul
    Shadowrun (SNES Version)

    The Mass Effect Trilogy!!! Let me play it on the PS4, pleeeeease EA. Remaking the first one would be nice too

    Silent Hill 2
    Front Mission
    Super Metroid
    Castlevania: Symphony of the Night

    PARASITE EVE!

    Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain. It seriously needs some modern love.

    In fact, the entire series does.

      Yes, all of them in one neat FHD remastered package! Vae victis!!!

    I would probably pre order the Katamari Damacy collection, especially if it came with collectables.

    Two words: DINO CRISIS
    Imagine Dino Crisis, the original and not any of the sequels, getting a HD remake in the same vein as Resident Evil. So not only do you get those nice shiny HD graphics, but a better story, more tense sequences for horror, and the surround sound that’ll keep you on your toes as that T-Rex chases you down... Mmmm lovely.

      Oh yes, a new Dino Crisis would also be very welcome.

    Skies of Arcadia Legends

      Came here to post the same thing. It's a crime that there isn't even a port of this game to any recent system.

    Knight of the fucking old republic 1&2
    (would settle for a 3rd, not that mmorpg crap)
    Metal gear solid 1
    Alpha Protocol (one of my favourite games)
    Final Fantasy 8
    Those and Mass effect have been a bug chunk of my gaming life 100s of hours poured into each of those games.

    Fallout 3
    Super Mario RPG/Early Paper mario games

    Tetris. I'm holding out for a remaster to co-incide with the movie release.

    I would like to see Battlefield Bad Company 1 and 2 remastered but I doubt that will ever happen.

    Need for Speed Underground 1&2

      No idea why kotaku decided to post this twice. Mods can delete the second comment if they want.

    Fallouts 1 & 2

    Leave everything the same - iso view, system, everything - but give it spanky new graphics ala DOS2.

    In no particular order;
    Syndicate Wars
    Anachronox
    AquaNox
    Yager
    Uprising: Join or Die
    Freelancer

    Some great ideas here.
    I'd like to see:
    Star Wars TIE Fighter
    TES Morrowind

    And more of a reimagining than a remaster of Star Wars Rebellion

    Team Fortress 2

    People are still playing this game yes, but god knows the networking and UI for this game are in desperate need of updating to modern systems. Good chance to purge certain items from the game too :p

    Shin Megami Tensei 1 - 3, with a side of If... and the one Devil Summoner game that never came West.

    Fallout: New Vegas
    Fallout: New Vegas
    Fallout: New Vegas
    X-Wing v Tie Fighter

    Demon Souls. Would love that with a modern quality of life updates from Bloodborne. That is the boring answer.

    The nostalgic answer would be Laser Squad. None of this X-Com baggage. Just pure old school. Also Sensible Soccer since we are at it.
