hmm i got to point out 2 things
1 what 8bit systems are even around any more? none so making the game for 8bit is totally pointless, ok cool. so even mobile phones are out of the question as they have more then 8bits.
2nd modern warfare 3 is out on many other platforms such as DS.

so really hes talking about something pointless?

Halo Zero

If they make it they should call it Halo Minus One

1) Ever heard of emulators?

2) 8 bit games rocked, their music rocked harder though. No one knows how or why - it just is. Also an 8-bit game would use a 1/1000th of the HD space as CoD but still last longer in terms of play time. Huh... funny.

3) Modern warfare 3 is on a lot of platforms soooo? You know cancer is on a lot of "platforms" as well. Popularity does not equal quality and just because it's popular doesn't mean I'm going to pretend like it's worth a damn.

4) Call of Duty and the sad little cult that seem to think a four hour long explosion constitutes a story should...just... seriously DO ANYTHING ELSE, IT'LL BE MORE CONSTRUCTIVE.

5) Every member of the CoD brigade who feels the need to disagree this I just want you to know that I get a very warm feeling out of telling idiots that their opinions don't matter so please continue.

Ehh, Super Nintendo may be cool, but not Nintendo. As much as I loved some NES games, they just feel TOO old... If that makes sense lol.

There's a lot of people that still collect nes games. I'm one of them. It's very cool that they do this. Would be even better if they were actual 8bit remakes.
