If you could force a studio to remake a single video game, which would it be?
Too many times people have heard the phrase, "the games had so much potential but it just didn't work." If you had the ability to go to studio and force them to remake a single game, which would it be?
Assassin's Creed III....It was a really disappointment for many fans, It was crushed by AC2 story and main character, in AC3 I really hated the story and the main character was a real pain to play with, but the worst part was the "Full Synch" this are a series of achievement to complete in each mission, forcing you to complete it the way the developer wants, I hated this because they put a limit in the imagination of the gamers to complete each mission they way they wants, instead they force the gamers to do something to have the 100% synch instead of free will. As a fan of AC series I'm still very disappointed of this game, I'm expecting a lot much more from the new AC4: Black flag, and I hope they don't disappoint the fans...again.
Metroid: Other M. It would be pretty simple too. Limit the story, because that's one of the biggest sources of discontent for fans. The game was also fairly streamlined, which isn't too good for a metroid game. Metroid fans enjoy the idea of being dumped on some lonely, isolated area.that's the charm that got me started with the series to begin with. And lastly, balance it. the game felt challenging at the wrong times, mostly because you were bombarded with enemies that classic metroid thinking wouldn't be useful against. this threw me off as well.
There's really too many games out there for me to say, but most of my list will just be followed by a cynical statement so I'll just say Duke Nukem: Forever. This game looked really cool on the first trailers, and while it may not have been brilliant at the time it still beats what we have now. What it is, is a dime-a-dozen over the top first person shooter. What it isn't, is it is not Duke Nukem. There's no style or class, no kick behind his jokes and the actual gameplay is pathetic. Duke Nukem Forever? Duke Nukem: Forever will I be ashamed of him here on.
Hands down Street Fighter X Tekken. In my mind a complete embarrassment to a successfully reinvigorated franchise after the leap into PS3 for Street Fighter. Too focussed on extracting money from loyal fans with unbalanced gem packs as well as giving newcomers to the series a sour taste of what should have been a great example of combining two heritage fighting franchises. It was also released with inexcusable bugs and was a shoddy product to be honest.
Only game I have ever returned within weeks in my life due to it being of poor quality.
Dinosaur Planet, aka Starfox Adventures. I want Nintendo and/or Rare to go back to the original storyline and characters and give it the time it deserved. Jamming Fox McCloud into the game only watered down what might have been an epic and thoughtful experience.
I would say
"Make me a game which can by played in multiple mode, RPG, strategy, Action at the same time, where every objects can be interacted with. A game where even a bot has self-evolving system to make new conversation and behavior. Where we can do anything. I mean anything! Fly, swim, talk, run, go around the world, climb a tree, drive a car, all. And do you know what will be the theme and story? Mario! HAHA. It was a good game back then."
But Alas I may have to wait for another 1000 years.
Well, as a fan of the 90's I would definitely want a new remake of the Syndicate game. The latest has absolutely dumb gameplay - enter an elevator shaft? no prob - just go to the shaft and press E.. and the movie starts. The whole idea with the Blade Runner universe has been left to die, no more merciless cyborgs, just fancy corporate environment and security guards..
Generally speaking, most games since.. 2006 for example are all good graphics, bad story line and retarded gameplay. Somewhat analogical to Hollywood productions.
Centipede was a fun game.The goal was to shoot a centipede as it winds its way down the screen and to also destroy the occasional spider.
That saw a PS1 remake and it was really good! If there was a remake of any version, it should be the PS1 version ^^
A lot of classic like that need some HD makeovers. I can only imagine what they could do with Tetris.
I've seen the Tetris remakes and it seems they can't do much but make it flashier and have more building combos. I raise my hat to the first one to make something original with it though ^^
I've been thinking about this question in the back of my mind since I first read it three months ago and today, I finally have an answer.
The Secret of Evermore. This game was the single most challenging yet greatly rewarding game of my childhood and I'm sad to see modern gamers who have never heard of this game. I must have played through it multiple times for probably in the ballpark of 400 hours, just playing and exploring the world of Evermore whether it was progressing the story, levelling weapons or alchemy, or just flying around the planet, every single second was fun.
How would I have them remake it? Update the graphics and that's it. Keep the camera at the same angle, keep the gameplay the same, everything else untouched. Only update the graphics to current and then walk away. The game's perfect as it is.

Is this game as big a disappointment for others as much as some reviews are making it out to me? Based on videos alone, the game looks terrible in graphics and connection issues on the multiplayer. The fact that they took so long to put out a game like this and to smudge a came like Duke Nukem just...
