There are a few games that get a pretty interesting reboot, but may not be in the favor of many and then there are series that just keep on going, but feel so repetitive and exhausting to play. What franchise would you like to see a reboot on and how would you like them to change?

Out Run I've not played. Dead Island I have, coop with my wife. Loved it. We have Dying Light, but there was something fun about that game. It's sad the sequel didn't take place any more. I had no idea that Galaga was the game I used to play as a kid. It would be fun, but I don't think it's that difficult nowadays to recreate. Maybe make it more difficult than I remember it to be? πŸ€”

So many games, great potential for seeing new ones coming.

PS: Prince of Persia is coming with a remake. The Sands of Time I mean.

Many already mentioned, but I'll add a few that would be nice to see again.

  • Starcraft. (I'm a PC gamer because of this game)
  • Vampire: The Masquerade. But not the current VN line, but the TPS and FPS ones.
  • Silent Hill. (This series needs as much love as Resident Evil gets)
  • Blade Runner (Don't know why this is not a huge franchise)
  • Sanitarium (Remake or reboot of this classic)
  • Black and White (Really original, really good)
  • Populous (This game was a genre of its own back then. Funny like few others)
  • F.E.A.R. (Intense and scary)
  • LOTR: Battle for Middle Earth (Really good RTS)
  • Wing commander ( I just miss the cutscenes. Bring back Mark Hamill. That would be much better than The Last Jedi... much)
  • Freedom Force. (Really fun to play. Old fashion superheroes and villains)
  • Empire Earth. (Crazy RTS. very entertaining)

Starcraft. (I'm a PC gamer because of this game)

I really like the Starcraft 2 and how it is. I really need to play and finish it. A remake would be awesome! πŸ‘πŸ»

Vampire: The Masquerade. But not the current VN line, but the TPS and FPS ones.

Totally, they should not focus on visual novels and just keep the game to it's roots. The new one is coming out, I hope they make a lot of fans happy.

Silent Hill. (This series needs as much love as Resident Evil gets)

Truth! We need more great IP's to return in the new decade with some awesome games.

Blade Runner (Don't know why this is not a huge franchise)

I am not sure either, maybe not many people talk about it yet.

Sanitarium (Remake or reboot of this classic)

Never heard of it, but looks interesting. What was it about?

Black and White (Really original, really good)

Yes! Without a doubt, I want to play more of this game in the future.

Populous (This game was a genre of its own back then. Funny like few others)

Looks like an RTS, what was it about?

F.E.A.R. (Intense and scary)

Yes, without a doubt. I gotta play the entire series. I have heard and know it's going to be good the first 2 at least.

LOTR: Battle for Middle Earth (Really good RTS)

As a fan of the LOTR I agree 100%.

Wing commander ( I just miss the cutscenes. Bring back Mark Hamill. That would be much better than The Last Jedi... much)

It looks like Star Wars Squadrons. Is it similar?

Freedom Force. (Really fun to play. Old fashion superheroes and villains)

This looks a lot like Ultimate Alliance. I really like the series.

Empire Earth. (Crazy RTS. very entertaining)

BIG YES. I grew up loving this series. I want to play them again. πŸ₯°

"Never heard of it, but looks interesting. What was it about?"
It's an isometric P&C, puzzle adventure. A dude wakes in a sanitarium with no idea of his identity and must find out. The plot is weird but the game is relevant because it was really original back then, both with the mechanics, the style, and the narrative, all kinda ahead of its time.

"Looks like an RTS, what was it about?"
Yes, Populous is an RTS but was not a regular one, specially Populous: The beginning. This one is similar to Black and White, both kinda God games, but with a high dose of comedy. Come to think of it, Populous and Black and White might be pretty much in the same style of comedy as Dungeon Keeper. Less known cousins in that regard.

"It looks like Star Wars Squadrons. Is it similar?"
You could say that, but wing commander is really retro, arcade retro, space fight simulation. As said, the cutscenes alone made that series a true classic. High production value for the time.

"This looks a lot like Ultimate Alliance. I really like the series."
Yeah, kinda, but not quite. Freedom Force is a little bit more like an action/puzzle and pays homage to the comics from the silver age. Aesthetically, is unique. Another original game back then. I always thought that if this featured DC or Marvel characters it would be not only a cult classic but venerated by the masses.

Thank you for clarifying, they truly all sound interesting and would be nice to see. I believe that Wing Commander could be remade by any Indie company if they want to. But they could not name it like that due to the IP.

Invisible War might also be turned to something decent... Quite an expensive work, but more in line with 1.

IW had the weakest story out of all, aswell as lowest roleplay elements involved, simplified augmentation variety and amount of slots..in other words - a bad game nobody liked or missing :)

Most of them are oldies that have disappeared in the depths of the gaming market. They need a resurrection, story continuation, graphic renewal, and compatibility with WIN 10/11.

Series:

  • Hexen - FPS with magic, swords and crossbows
  • Turok - FPS, lone indian fighting dinosaurs and aliens
  • Ecstatica - adventure game with decent history
  • The Neverhood - adventure game with clay/plastiline animations
  • Little Big Aventure - adventure game with quite a cool world
  • MDK - see gameplay to understand. it was quite innovative in its time.

Single games:

  • Terminator: Skynet - FPS from the days when Bethesda was a good guy making innovative games
  • Cadillacs and Dinosaurs - the title speaks for itself :)
  • G-Nome (1997) - TPS with mechs
  • Interstate '76 - road fight for fuel like mad max, but in the atmosphere of the '80s
  • Citizen Kabuto - mix of TPS and adventure game with humorous story,
  • Harvester - horror point and click game. i personally find it the sickest game I've ever played and I doubt there is anything below. I'd like to see if anyone in the correctness world of today would have enough guts to officially publish something similar

Other:

  • Fuel - the youngest of them all. Car racing with huge open world from Codemasters. the game offered a non-linear way of racing. Until 2013 it was available on Steam. currently it isn't available anywhere, only disc releases are left with GFWL system.

I remember playing MDK too, I found it really fun and probably was one of my very first video games at the time. It was such a strange yet interesting game.

Turok I've not played, but I've had a friend who did and I enjoyed watching it. It was so cool.

The rest mentioned I can't recall playing. But I would like to see remakes happening.

AMID EVIL is kind of inspired by Hexen though it's more of a focus on combat than puzzles. They also published DUSK, a modern take on Quake that was one of the best FPS's I've played in recent years.

I thought D4: Dark Dreams Don’t Die was a great quirky episodic adventure game. Unfortunately the game director left the company and lost the rights so it was never finished.

Oh that's sad, maybe they could reboot the whole series then.

I don't know any of the games, but the last two seem quite interesting. Gorky 17 has turn base in it. I'd love to play that one.
