If you could remake one game, what would it be?
« on: March 06, 2015, 09:46:39 pm »
self explanatory. Id have to say Mechwarrior 4: Mercenaries, as we havent had a singleplayer mechwarrior game since it, and it is SO good. mabye add a sandbox mode where you jsut dick around the inner sphere and take missions, but i want a remake of it. it just has so many awesome moments. like, the first time you take down a heavy mech. or that mission where you, and two lances of Inner Sphere Mechwarriors, fight a full Binary of clan assault mechs. AND WIN. a game of my childhood, and a series that died far too soon.
Thanks Peri for making me question muh sexualities once again.

Stronghold 2/3 didn't look like they add up to the original.
Jesus Exodus, your like an adorable little terrorball.

Spore. It had so much potential to be even more awesome than it is. I'd mainly change of the tribal/city stages, and add that aquatic phase between cell/animal, which was cut out to conserve disk space.

Me too, hence the "so much potential to be even more awesome than it is" part.

I'd have to pick either Jagged Alliance 1.13 or Rome Total War. Seems like no one can remake JA without it remaining a buggy mess (kinda true to the original), but the sheer amount of guns and customization is really appealing. It's also one of the only games I have over 100 hours on without having just destroyed, but really needs modernization and a more optional micromanagement system.

Yeah, there's Rome II, which isn't a horrible game after a year of updates, but is too DLC dependent and uses the horrible melee system found in all Total War games starting with medieval. It's supposed to be a strategy game, I don't need to see "cinematic" one on one fights - I want my guys to be able to pile on the enemy and kill them quickly. Just focuses on the wrong things in my mind, and after around 500 hours in the first Rome, it seems like not a ton would need to be done to fix the issues it has (no late game for non-romans).

Maybe the second MoO, too. World needs more hotseat games that don't suck, and putting the ship building system from stardrive into it would be great.
Gone. Cheers guys.

I'd have said FarGate, since it was one of my favourite childhood games, but it was fairly obscure since it was in direct competition to the original Homeworld, which kinda was a better game and has recently got a remake anyway.

Second choice of Hogs of War also got a remake, that I don't believe works properly though.

A remake of the original C&C games would be great though, the last game sucked.

Harvester. The game is already eerie and creepy, and just really wrong. I wonder how much crazier it would be with updated graphics, writing, and better game play mechanics. (It had combat. It sucked.)

I imagine it would be almost similar to Hatred if it were to be remade now.


Also Earthbounnnnndddddd..... Loved that game. Wasn't a childhood favorite but I joined the cult following a few years back. Great story, great characters. Lovely game.

I would remake Day 1: Garry's Incedent. I would make it not suck.
I am no longer legitimately considering leaving this forum

Tiny bit off topic but I've never seen the appeal of games like DayZ where any time you start to become slightly successful someone is just gonna come along and fuck your shit up just to be a dick.
I'd remake most games that've taken that awful route lately and remove the concept of being a dick to each other just for the sake of it, because it's easy to ruin someone else's game, it's incredibly hard to actually get anything done with a team of strangers you're forced to work with to survive  .

Actually, Dayz Mod was a HUGE thing for me a couple years ago. I joined when it was first starting, and I only left when the Standalone version was a bit dissapointing. I spent a good 2 years on their forums, and it directly lead me to CATA, so it lead me to you guys, so it has a special place in my heart. Also, I was pretty damn good at it. Actually got a 20$ bounty on me in game once. Damn i miss it. I wish it was still like the first few months, where people were nice and trusting and everyone wasn't a threat to your safety.

Yeah, all I see of DayZ now is "Oh shit, theres a guy, better kill him just in case he shoots me"
