    Personally I have two, Starquake, which was a really fun platformer I owned way back on the Spectrum, which had a really interesting mechanic, where the character couldnt jump, but could generate platforms under itself, and they would stack, pushing the character higher and higher.

    Secondly is Flood, aka the Bullfrog game noone remembers because it wasnt a god game.  Another platformer, this had cavernous levels, and water would fill up the whole level realistically, filling tunnels, creating air pockets.  The water was simultanteously a thread, as you could run out of oxygen, and a solution mechanic as you could float/swim to inaccessible areas.

    007 GoldenEye.
    Hands down.  More than any other game.
    Online would be awesome.

    They need to put Space Invaders Extreme on XBLA
    Also they need to put Banjo-Tooie as well as the upcoming Banjo-Kazooie on XBLA

    Since apparently Nintendo doesn't have a problem having their games going onto the XBLA (Banjo Kazooie) anymore --  hopefully Activision and MS/Rare can work something out for us... maybe in anticipation of one of the new Bond movies

    I don't know about classics. But i'd love to see alot of Dreamcast games come to the Arcade. Crazy Taxi, Ready to Rumble, Powerstone, and come on, Chu-Chu Rocket was MADE for XBLA.

    Im pretty sure Banjo was never a Nintendo property as such, it was fully owned by Rare when they were a Nintendo second party, so where they go, the Banjo licence goes, ditto for Conker, which is why we got a Bad Fur Day remake on the XB already.

    I agree with Goldeneye and Battletoads. I also say Zombies Ate My Neighbors so there can be a saved system so the score would save, and online co-op would be awesome. Maybe while Dead Rising 2's around the corner...?

    I have to say Goldeneye, took up many hours of my life when I was younger, and also Conker,  loved it and Live and Reloaded.

    Having been gaming since the very early 80's I can tell there is goldmine of classic C64 and PC games that could use a remake, too many to list.

    While I might be sounding like a broken record I think golden eye 64 should be on the arcade. I think Extreme G racing from N64 should be remade seeing how the license is floating around.

    Rambo first blood part 2 it was on the SMS and it would be perfect for XBLA because it had co-op.

    Nintendo was part of the problem why GoldenEye didn't come to the Xbox Live Arcade. The only reason we are getting Banjo is because Rare owns the IP, them, and them only.

    On an even more possible note, Perfect Dark but with Xbox 360 graphics (Maybe the Source engine?) And a more fleshed out online mode, (Like Perfect Dark Zero's online.) That thing would sell like Wiis, which sell like Hotcakes.

    Wow, you all have some great ideas! I like Ristar and Breakout.

    For me, and this is all on Sega, why haven't we seen Vectorman yet? Geeze....can't say I'm suprised. It's Sega afterall.

    Longshot we'll never see...Jurassic Park from the Genesis. I know, there's probably licensing issues but still, I love that game!
