Nine games from the 90s in need of an HD reboot

Game Guys:
"With Electronic Arts' Medal of Honor receiving a franchise reboot in 2010, Syndicate being rebooted earlier this year, and Maxis' SimCity getting the same treatment in 2013, the Game Guys have wondered what other game franchises could use some attention from the video game reboot gods. For this, we look back to the 1990's and have come up with a list of nine games that stand out amongst the rest." (Arcade, Area 51, Crazy Taxi, Culture, Killer Instinct, King of the Monsters, Lethal Enforcers, Pit-Fighter, Primal Rage, Retro, Revolution X)

I would so milk over a new MDK!
How hot would that be with todays' graphics & tech abilities?

An HD Killer Instinct and Bushido Blade would be awesome.
Eyeco  +   1134d ago
I thought Bushido Blade was the best fighter on Playstation in fact screw that its the best fighter I've ever played I even Preferred it to Tekken 3 it's a shame not that many people know of it.

It was awesome because it was so hardcore. 1 hit kills are practically unheard of nowadays. But at the same time, it was very accessible because rounds would go by so fast. By far the most realistic weapons based fighter ever made.
Eyeco  +   1133d ago
agreed 110% Soul Calibur fans can go and screw themselves, Bushido Blade is the definitive weapon based fighter.

GEX needs a reboot.
Tetsujin  +   1133d ago
Tekken 3
Rival Schools
Street Fighter Alpha 3
Mario RPG
Chrono Trigger
Sonic 3 with knuckles
Bushido Blade 2
Samurai Showdown 2
Marvel Super Heroes vs Street Fighter
Donkey Kong Country 2
Out of this world

Which makes me think;
Why are'nt there any Rival School characters in any of the Capcom Vs. games?
Also, a Rival School Vs. Street Fighter would be hot!
amaguli  +   1133d ago
Batsu from Rival Schools is in Tatsunoko vs Capcom, the game is on the Wii.
Tetsujin  +   1133d ago
I know Kyosuke was in Capcom vs SNK 2, but yea that did make my head scratch
segamon  +   1133d ago
great list.

I don't ask for much. I just want a JetMoto HD collection with multiplayer available over PSN.

That's all I ask for. PLEASE SONY....it's not even a reboot, just an HD update. I promise I won't ask for anything else from you this gen.

Please make it happen. I will be your best friend.... :)

Skew King of the Monsters, I want War of the Monsters.

Also not getting why with Move being the perfect light gun accessory Sony's not making light gun games.
