IIRC Faery Tale Adventure was ported to PC. Midwinter has an ST version, which one was the original and which the port? Both awesome games nonetheless - especially Midwinter with regards to the topic of this thread - incredible what they were able to do with simple vector 3D graphics.

WINGS!

Keep the great storyline aspect, add some killer cutscenes and use real actors A La Wing Commander Prophecy and update with modern graphics and flight physics but keep the game accessible and easy to learn but tough to master.  

I would buy it in a heartbeat...

The AD&D goldbox series.
Street Rod. There was an effort to make a Streetrod 3, but I think it's been abandoned.


Even though both of these games had PC versions back in the day, I agree that both need a revisit.  

There's no spiritual successor to the AD&D Gold Box games, and that is really a shame.  The entire offline RPG genre has been decimated by subscription-based MMOs, and that really sucks.  

And as for Street Rod, there are a billion and twelve car games, and yet so few that even sniff at the borders of where this title firmly planted itself.  The start of the game was always the best... You're basically broke and trying to bodge together a decent car from a bunch of dodgy 2nd hand parts bought out of the back section of the newspaper...  Brilliant.

Another driving game is one that has been imitated a million times but never actually had the spirit duplicated was Stunt Track racer.  The balance of needing to drive fast enough to win vs. needing to pace and not destroy the vehicle is really the nugget of joy behind a great arcade racer, and yet it is almost always the most neglected facet of the genre.   "Do I fly over this jump knowing I'm going to overshoot the landing, hoping to get a fortunate bounce on the landing and come into the corner hot?  Or do I tap the brakes on this ramp so I don't overshoot the landing and then gain back the speed by using the last of my boost out of the corner?  I have about 0.1 seconds left to decide.  Crap!"  That's the kind of decision that makes heroes and idiots...... And I miss it.

Cannon Fodder's an excellent candidate - could easily me made to work with a 3D world to suit the mass public who wouldn't accept anything that wasn't 3D, and with similar camera angles and mot too many flashy extras, the gameplay could be kept pretty similar, i.e. great!

Also, Zeewolf could be a great game given an up-to-date 3D engine.

As for remakes that already made it, I loved Populous: The Beginning - still play it now from time to time. Also, Syndicate Wars looked pretty good but never got to play it...

What about Worms? (I'm joking, I'm joking...)

I'd love to see how well "modern hardware" could do a game like Transplant.

Has there ever been any kind of remake of "Stunt Car Racer"?. That would be pretty awesome!

Zool - Would loved to see him in a 3d platformer (ok it was on every platform but by far most popular on the Amiga)

RoadKill - Got the Cd32 version love the simple idea of bashing peoples cars to bits, if any one remeber the intro http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jfXlpSYlN_I thats how I would like to see the remake!

Cannon Fodder - That would be great a more modern one, it was rummors that a PSP version was coming out but it never has.

Stunt Car Racer - update of that would be fun, but its kind has been done with Track Mania

Liberation was pants period.  But yes something along those lines, but the player should not be left running around for hours wondering what the hell to do or where to go; linear gameplay is better than non-linear in my opinion.

The only thing I remember being unique in that game is how you stored items in inventory - slotless - you basically dragged whatever you was carrying to fit in the given space on the screen; that alone was highly original.

Liberation was a huge let down for many players who loved Captive.


What you're describing is what I felt about Captive :)
Obviously the hypothetical remake would address these issues.

AD&D Goldbox would rock. I played through all of them and loved them all and was really disappointed with the "Pool of Radiance: Ruins of Myth Drannor" game that came out a while back. I was hoping for a reboot of the series.

Also, I agree with Stunt Car Racer. That game with modernized graphics would be so much fun.

A remake of Leander would be nice. That old atmospheric psygnosis title would be nice to play with modern 3d graphics and cutscenes!!
Retro is fun, until it totally engrosses you back into your former life!!!
