I played the arcade version (with the awesome tilting chair) of this a few weeks ago. Gonna be a good one to own on a console.

Yeah, the arcade version was fun. As long as it's not more than 800 msp, it'll be worth it

Well, I wouldn't have put it past Sega to get a full box release out of this, so 800 points would be pretty generous from their point of view.

After Burner Climax - The High Point of an Aging Series

After Burner Climax launched on home consoles and PC back in 2010, and we've seen very little of the series since.

Fantastic game. I only wish it were bc for xb one. I keep my 360 hooked up specifically to play this and other delisted games like outrun and sega rally.

If Sega is smart (they're not; We've established this a long long time ago, sadly), they'd release a nice collection for current-gen with the best versions of these old arcade-console classics, like Outrun, Crazy Taxi, Sega Rally, Virtua Tennis, Afterburner, etc etc, as well as some of their JP-only releases, like Initial D.

I'm with you.

I want project justice (rival schools in Europe).

I want powerstone both from capcom.

And of course every game you mentioned.

I specifically think sega rally is under utilised. It made people who didn't even like racing games have-a-go and I thought it was great back in the arcades and Dreamcast era. Crazy taxi I never laughed so hard before or since..it was pure gold on dreamcast also

You may also like Chorus from Deep Silver if you like these type of games.

Gunstar Heroes was made by Treasure. I'm not sure if that IP actually belongs to Sega. If it does, the ONLY modern day developer that I think would do that game justice is Housemarque. Maybe Sega could collaborate with Sony to let them make a modern day Gunstar Heroes. I definitely think Shinobi and Afterburner need modern day remakes though.

I feel like there are stronger Sega IP's than some of the ones that were listed such as...

Vector Man
Comix Zone
Virtual On
Ranger X
Jet Set Radio
Eternal Champions

A new eternal champions would be sick

TimelessDbz785d ago

Phantasy star Online 1 and Phantasy star universe.

Mopes785d ago

Sadly I think that is unlikely because of Phantasy Star Online 2

FlavorLav01785d ago

Totally agreed. That’s a good start. Here’s a few more I think would covert well.

Virtua Fighter
Fighting Vipers
Sonic Adventure
Altered Beast
Shenmue (properly supported)

Condemned criminal origins!

Amazing series, wish more people had known about it back in the day!

sourOG785d ago

Probably still my favorite horror game of all time. I’ve been into that kind of shit my whole life so I don’t scare easy but condemned got me. When you’re looking down a hallway and see people peaking out. The heart was kicking lmao.

I need to play it again. I played a year or 2 ago and it still held up. Graphics are obviously dated but just the premise. Like pulling pipes off of the wall and shit. You don’t see that anymore. I’d take the same game with a new can of paint, it still feels good. Multiplat remaster do it. I don’t think criminal origins ever came to PlayStation.

As hard as it was, the Shinobi remake that came out on PS2 was decent. But yes, a new remake would be great. Always loved that series.
