10. Metal Gear and Metal Gear: Solid Snake (NES)- We can't deny that these two were unpopular back then because the graphics weren't good even at that day and age, and the gameplay was so tricky that it scared everyone away. However, things have changed a lot in Konami and there's undeniably a gargantuan MGS fan base now. We'll be seeing MGS4 soon, but don't we all want to see how it all began in HD glory? It would take a real hater to not want to see Solid Snake and Gray Fox fighting in a minefield in Zanzibar.
9. Circus Charlie (NES)- This was THE party game almost two decades ago! The premise is simple: Your name is apparently Charlie and you work in a circus. For some reason, your boss found a way to get around the labor code and has decided to have you perform all the acts.
In stage 1, the easy part is that you have to ride a full-grown lion, then have the poor thing jump through flame rings with you at its back. In other stages, you dodge monkeys, while walking the tightrope, walk on beach balls, and more. And this was supposed to be a kids' game? We'd love to do that with great graphics and a motion-sensitive controller.
Let's all pray hard that "Charlie" gets remodelled as a clown in a bath tub to make it more fun.
8. General Chaos (Genesis)- Before there was Red Alert and Dynasty Warriors, there was General Chaos. This is perhaps the first real RTS and it was a lot of fun to play. The gameplay was simple- you command a platoon of two to five soldiers equipped with everything from assault rifles to rocket launchers and you meet another platoon in a small map. Winning here is all about positioning and choosing the right weapons for the right terrain. Humor is everywhere from the wacky animations to the in-game text. For instance, when you hit the Start button, you get the display "Reality Check" instead of "Pause".
This game can look really good on the PS3 or X360 if they can deepen the gameplay and give the graphics the updates that the game needs, while maintaining the funny appeal. Perhaps adding vehicles, clever audio and more weapons will give this classic more firepower.
7. Double Draon- The series was strong in the old days but was weakened and left to rot with a lackluster showing at the 16-bit era. If the next-gen can capture the insane martial arts fun that captivated the older crowd when they were young this can start a revolution...
