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!"
