Ten Classics That Could Use A First-Person Remake

JD: "It's the fad now. Classic video game franchises -- those long thought to be dead -- are being rebooted and redesigned to become first-person shooters for our modern era. We saw the Fallout series jump to first-person a few years back. Recently, XCOM was announced as a first-person strategy game. Even more recently, the legendary strategy franchise Syndicate was shown off as a first-person steampunk shooter.

And while it can be debated whether or not the "first-person" perspective of storytelling is right for these games, the cold truth is that we're seeing the beginning of a trend. Like Hollywood, the video game industry is turning nostalgia into a source of income -- culling cult hits from the 1980s and 1990s to mutate into the new age. So, we're taking this idea and running with it. We know it'll probably be controversial. But we're going to do it anyway. These are ten games that would be awesome reboots for the seventh generation. Enjoy!"

There is some good points to be had, i would love a Blood omen game done in the style of Oblivion, but to have Shenmue in First person would destroy it.

Stop the first person madness! We have too many 1st person games already...

First X-Com, then Syndicate. What now? Populous? Sim City?

When an old game turns into an FPS now they turn to shit.

I'd love to see a new Legacy of Kain game, but certainly not a first person game. One of the things that made LoK so great was that they were partially open-world platforming/adventure games. Similar to the Uncharted or Tomb Raider series. Taking that away would just be...bleh.

That's what I thought. I think the writer need to get 10 lashes for even suggesting to turn a Legacy of Kain into a FPS.

I'll take a new LoK game but if they made it first person I'd find the director/producer of the game and spit in their face.
