A Call For New Old Games

Chris McGuinness from Screen-Shaped Eyes is bringing retro back with his pick of games that desperately need a reboot. (3DS, E.T, PC, PS Vita, PS3, Super Ghouls 'n Ghosts, Wii U, Xbox 360)

I'd just like to see more games like Mega Man 9 and 10 (one of the few things Capcom has done right this gen). Where they just go completely back old school and make new additions as if it were back in the day. I'd buy the hell out of some new Mega Man's, Final Fantasy's, Zelda's, Mario's, Battletoads, Castlevania's, etc.

Too right. Im all for new IP's but when we have so many amazing game franchises either stagnating or collecting dust it just makes sense to try and revitalise them, the Old school with a current gen twist root seems like a great way to go, IMO.

Yeah, there are a bunch of great IP out there, just waiting for revival. Actually(and instead of Super Ghouls n' Ghosts), I'd love to see Capc(p)om continue with the Maximo series. Fun.

Alien Rebels 3 (Contra 3) was my absolute favorite SNES game! Would love more of em.

Oh yeah, I'd love to see a remake of Contra.

New Rastan, New forgotten world, and a new space harrier.

I wish Capcom would bring black tiger arcade to the home console cause I'd be the first in line to purchase it.

I loved the Ultimate Ghosts'n Goblins on psp. Maximo would be nice to see again and so would Alexx the kid and Scaler.

old school crash and spyro ! heck i havent seen jak in like 10 yrs

Streets of Rage / Final Fight style games, regular fighting games i find are stale and repetitive now.

Also Desert Strike, Road Rash or it's almost exact copy but with other vehicles - ESPN Xtreme Games (PS1)

So many great games that could be brought back and have online Co-op etc.

A new 2.5D Ghouls N Ghosts would be just the thing to get me interested in Crapcom again.

lol...it should be more of a wake up call that gameplay and fun factor matters more then shinier pixels...then wiiu can really shine this generation with the uniqueness and gameplay possibilities that it offers.....actually looking the pic, a new ghost n ghouls would be a great game right now.

I would like to see another side scroller RPG like castlevania or the original metroids.

Make a new game like that and put it on the vita.
