What Game From Your Childhood Would Like To See Re-Released?

Gaming Steve asks, "I was asked which game I would love to see come out for the Nintendo Virtual Console / Xbox Live Arcade / PlayStation Network. It was a tricky question as there are so many games I would love to play again from my childhood, but right at the very top of my list was one of my favorite games of all time, StarTropics.

So imagine my shock when I heard that Nintendo was releasing StarTropics for the Virtual Console ... today!

What game from your childhood would like to see re-released?" (Arcade, Culture, PS3, StarTropics, Wii, Xbox 360)

Golgo 13...
Golgo 13 for sure!

Dude, I have no freaking idea why Nintendo dropped Star Tropics but they need to pick it back up. My game(s) though would have to be Ranger X, a TRUE sequel to Chronotrigger, updated Illusion of Gaia, River City Ransom, and anything from Treasure.

Original devs of Chronotrigger are busy
they're too busy making Blue Dragon 2 for the 360.
Skerj  +   2834d ago
They wouldn't be able to make it anyway since Square owns the right, which is good because I couldn't stand the first Blue Dragon. If they stopped remaking the first 4 Final Fantasy games repeatedly then they could do it because Chrono Cross didn't cut it.

awww man you didn't like chrono cross? I thought it was great how they managed to make a completely different game, but still kept elements from the past one (crono, lucca, marle making an apearance etc.) The fighting system also has to be one of the best in a jrpg. And don't even get me started on the music...the song that plays on the world map in Another World...amazing
WilliamRLBaker  +   2834d ago
chrono trigger, illusion of gaia and a few others.
no_more_heroes  +   2834d ago
The First 3 Crash and Spyro games
the new versions of both franchises suck. I hate Traveler's Tales and Vicarious Visions for that.
pcz  +   2834d ago
alex the kidd, the one that was built into the master system
bdwins  +   2834d ago
Contra and Punch-Out
Contra with some network Co-Op would be sweet.
crippler666  +   2834d ago
Manic Minor / Jet Set Willy / Chuckie Egg.

Any of those please and make sure they stay 2D.... They would just never work in 3D.
prunchess  +   2834d ago
Wow! 8 bit Games like Jetset Willy and Maniac Miner, I haven't heard of those games since i had a Sinclair spectrum!
nirwanda  +   2833d ago
head over heals and knightlore.
roybatty  +   2834d ago
If they remade Elite I would be happy. I loved that game.

I think it is a classic game, that has the depth to still be a viable
remake on modern hardware. Can't beat that 2001 Space Oddyssy style docking sequence with the Blue Danube Waltz playing!
Those were the days.
Skerj  +   2834d ago
Play some EVE Online :D
SSCOOLCHEA  +   2834d ago

its a game call bump n jump ....where you jump from one cliff to another collecting flags.....mike tyson punch out ( the same concept 3D graphics real boxers ( wow )
ANoobsJourney  +   2834d ago
I would vote for...
Ikari Warriors, Maniac Mansion, Moon Patrol, Bump N Jump, and Dragon Slayer.

SSCOOLCHEA  +   2833d ago

ALItheWISE  +   2834d ago

kewlkat007  +   2834d ago
Umm Star tropics, Meng that brings back memories...Using that yo-yo and jumping on the right blocks, which reminded me of Zelda back in the day, That game was the sh^t.

Where is my Chrono Trigger, right before Square game out with the masterpiece FFVII for PSone, this game is so underrated, too bad not many got a chance to play it. I luv the OST as well.

GREAT list! So many good titles there...and kudos for mentioning Bubsy, who was more than just a Sonic knock-off (as some alleged). He was Conker (snazzy attitude, pop-culture references) before Conker was a gleam in Rare's eye.

Pitfall...early Activision classic. Another ripe for resurrection on XBLA.

Altered Beast, Battletoads, Tecmo Bowl...among the best.

And a memo to Rare: Killer Instinct. On XBLA. NOW!
Gazman  +   2834d ago
River Raid, Speedball and the Pit Fall games.
Covenant  +   2834d ago
River Raid was the s#it...always fun to play. Perfect for XBLA...hint hint, MS!
Snoozer282  +   2834d ago
Rings of Power!
Skizelli  +   2834d ago
I'd love to see updated versions of the 2D Mega Mans with crazy special effects.
SJL480  +   2834d ago
Fade_Walker  +   2834d ago
childhood eh?...um...Day of the Tentacle and Sam & Max
Flying_Squirrel  +   2834d ago
So many to pick from
First choice would be Thanatos, playing as a dragon was awesome

Also add Populous, Strider, Silkworm and It came from the Desert as well.

In fact just add everything, you can never have too many games :)
prunchess  +   2834d ago
It Came From the Desert including the Antheads add on by CINEMAWARE
That was such a great game on the Commodore Amiga. CINEMAWARE did another game called WINGS. If they just re-did the graphics on these games they would be hits again. I still play WINGS using a Amiga emulator.
nirwanda  +   2833d ago
I'd love to see populous 2 with online play and silkworms got to be the best side scrolling shoot-em up ever made.
I'd also like to see stunt car racer remade with online play.

Secret Of Evermore
Seiken Denetsu 2 (secret of mana 2, or secret of mana snes)
EarthBound *SNES version*
Breath of fire 1 and 2 and 3 *better translations*
Bahamut Lagoon
ActRaiser 1 (the 2nd one sucked)
Earthworm jim....all of them (specially the moonlight sonata lvl)
7th saga 1 and 2
Brandish 1-4
Dragon View
E.V.O Search for eden (AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH)
Seiken Denetsu 3 (secret of mana 3)
SIM ANT MOFO! that game was the GREATEST sim game you play a freaking ant and have to build an colony and fight the red ants! EVIL EVIL RED ANTS! DIE!!!!!

Soul Blazer (illusion of gaia 1 basically)

All the Y's games
Arc the lad games
Albert Odyssey games
Dragon force 1 and 2
Golden sun 1 and 2 (combine them and make them HD 2d)
Growlanser games
Guardian heros
Langrisser all of them >_<
Legend of legaia 1 and 2
Lunar 1 and 2
Heroine Anthem 1 and 2
Phantasy star 1-4
All the popful mail games
Shining force games and shining saga

I should mention that all the games that appeared in 2d should remain 2d but in hd with hd sprites...ect and maybe voices, the ones that came in 3d or 3d/2d should remain that way but better.

I hate 3d updates of 2d titles they we're 2d for a reason.
Shaka2K6  +   2834d ago
Anything about marios.
Enough with the marios already.
Covenant  +   2834d ago
Blaster Master...Zaxxon...Rygar.

XBLA, Virtual Console...whatever. Just make it happen!

Luckily, I bought Atari Anthology (Adventure FTW!), Capcom Classics, and Namco Museum for my Xbox, so I can take most of my gaming trips down nostalgia lane by simply popping in a disc.
ukilnme  +   2834d ago
Nice choices. Zaxxon and Rygar were great.
Komrad  +   2834d ago
it would have to be wasteland.
Stoned Alone  +   2834d ago
smashballs  +   2834d ago
Rygar (Argus no Senshi)

Shadowgate-Deja Vu-The Uninvited

All the SNES Dragonball fighters -- especially 2

Wizards and Warriors

Skate or Die
bym051d  +   2834d ago
1. The Guardian Legend
2. Crystalis
X  +   2834d ago
Beat me to guardian legend. Around the people that I know, it's the best NES game that no one ever played. Should this come to the VC it will be very worth the 500 points.
Leathersoup  +   2834d ago
One game.
Racing Destruction Set from EA. I have a lot of great memories of that game.
ReBurn  +   2834d ago
Draugr  +   2834d ago
I'd like to see more games that never made it to the USA and/or Europe like they did with Sin and Punishment for the N64.

EDIT: Just realized I didn't answer the question the article posed since I obviously wouldn't have played games that never came out in my country as a kid. Oh well, lol.
