Anteaters Glog #1:Game Remakes that need to be made!

These days,its a trend to remake old games and get a few quick bucks. Now ,while some of these are just quick cash-ins,some rare ones get the treatment they deserve,and their creators give them the sweat,blood and tears they deserve. Now while this doesn't mean the game will be any good,that all depends the skill of the developer,that's another pair of sleeves anyway,so lets get into this right away,shall we?
 
Prince of Persia-Okay,so who doesn't want this game to be remade? Those who haven't played,that's who. Whoever played it knows its a wonderful expirience,however it just doesn't hold up today,and not only that but-its sold for absurd amounts! Why? Because its a classic,thats why. And thats also why its practically BEGGING for a remake. Want to know just how good the Prince was way back? Play Prince of Persia 4D,and then multiply its giant amounts of fun by 1000. Its free by the way. Today,i don't wanna play this game,because,frankly,it hasn't aged very well. A 2D remake,that isn't just a quick cash in, with 720p/1080i,better controlls,a bigger budget and better sound would be awesome,and it would sell extremelly well. Make it happen Ubisoft!
 
Rock 'n Roll Racing-What developer has made an amazing title,which then made them famous,but then decided to dump it? Blizzard. C'mon who that had an NES didn't have this awesome game? Well,unfortunately a lot of people. See,this game made 'em famous,not rich. Rock 'n Roll Racing didn't sell as well as expected,and there for no sequel was made (though,truth be told,the characters in some other games for shits and giggles),Blizzard forever turned to PC and never looked back. Hell,a lot of people  don't even know about this game (which is a shame!),and so there isn't a lot of people asking for a remake (which is the case with PoP,and there likely WILL be a remake of PoP eventually). I mean,c'mon. Blizzard needs to get their asses back on all platforms,and if not...just remake the fucking game on PC!

Aliens VS. Predator-Wait,what? This already was remade! Yes,but it wasn't very good. It was a quick cash-in,and a rehash,and its time for something new. Now we already got pretty shotty HD that need to be fixed,controls are alright but the fact that the Aliens seem so steril while shooting them isn't,the fact the altogether feeling of playing is a human is boring isn't alright,the fact that the Predator is the only light spot in the game isn't alright! I insist on a remake of this piece of shit,because the original is too good for this
 
Motor Toon:Grand Prix-A game so unknown,that not even Polyphony Digital,which were dudes and dudettes who made this awesome piece of game-pie,acknowledges it! But anyway,when Mario Kart 64 came out,as you already know,it was quite a boom in the market and so there were clones everywhere,most on Sony's champion of consoles (PlayStation),and most of them sucked,however,MT:GP wasn't one of them. Also,this was the 2nd one in Japan,and it was a like a second try. It also failed,and its almost 100% they will NEVER be remade.... :'(
 
Chrono Trigger I & II-Go play it. Now. Its too good to be missed,and its one of the best RPGs of all effin' time! JUST GO PLAY AND HOPE FOR A REMAKE!!!
 
So,do you have any wishes?

The Prince of Persia remake already happened: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NBpruneqIG4
 
It's not a unique wish, but I'd still like to see FFVII remade. Not with voices -- just a graphical overhaul. The PS3 tech-demo they showed years ago of the opening sequence was a cruel teaser.

@CompleteInanity: Didn't know :/

If there's one game I'd like to see remade, it's Odin Sphere. I know, I know, it's only three years old, but if they updated it with Muramasa: The Demon Blade's combat, it'd be one of the best games ever made. It looks beautiful, sounds beautiful and tells a story that makes most -- if not all -- other video games seem like Uwe Boll movies in comparison (not that that's hard, but still). The only real problem it has is the extremely tedious, poorly designed combat; replace it with Muramasa's fighting system, and you've got a masterpiece.

Wait, Odin Sphere? Is that old enough?

@Icemael: They could do that through an update via DLC

I was playing Skies of Arcadia last night, and I realized how epic it would be if the graphics were redone and the characters were voiced. The soundtrack, setting, and story are already great, imagine how much more it would be with an update.

@Anteater: Odin Sphere is a Playstation 2 game. And even if it was on 360 or PS3, it would still be far too large an update to apply via DLC. They'd have to change everything from the basic combat mechanics to the enemy behaviour and the animations.

Oddly the first thing that came to mind for me was Legend of Dragoon.  I know there are better games out there but I think that game deserved  better and remake could be a chance for that game to shine in the mainstream. Also would love to see a remake of Lunar: Eternal Blue with Tales of Vesperia graphics. Now that games can practically look like anime as far as graphics that game would be freaking sweet.  No need to change the story, just tune up the graphics and fix some of the combat issues and bam i know i would buy that game day one!

A new Strider game would make my day. A true to form Dino Crisis Sequel as well, not that dinosaurs in space re imaging either, no, I want Regina back. Even though technically it won't be a remake I would really like to see a Megaman Legends 3.

Maybe not Odin Sphere, but I would love to see a remake of Princess Crown.
