    Thought there was a thread on the topic but searched and couldnt find any. So in case exists, mods pls merge, thanks.

    Anyway, I recall enjoying many games released many years ago, but that simply do not hold up by todays standards. Heres my personal list of games I would definitely buy if remastered.

    1- AC Black Flag - when it came out back in 2013 was amazing, graphics, gameplay, setting & story, naval combat, etc. Several weeks ago tried to play it but it was really showing its age. Just could not continue. Movement, parkour clunky as hell and you would inadvertently climb anything along your path when running. Long drawn out follow-your-target missions where you have to keep just the right distance and eavesdrop on conversations. Stealth, although a major feature of AC games was half-baked and not well implemented. Been playing Odyysey during past few months and wow, if Black Flag could be remastered up to its standards would be an incredible game imo.

    2- Prince of Persia - Sands of Time. Another thoroughly enjoyable game for me. Would be killer if remastered today.

    3- Need for Speed Underground 2 - By far the most enjoyable NFS game for me in the series. Its graphics at the time were jaw dropping, whether cruising up the hills or through the casino district, just wow. And that outrun mode was unique and kept the game fresh, with you or your opponent being able to dictate your own course when trying to lose the other guy. If remastered today, take my money.

    4- Halo 2 - quite enjoyed it but would need a full scale, top to bottom remastering to interest me again.

    5- Time Shift - loved that game and would certainly get it if remastered.

    Your games that you would like to see remastered?

    Banjo-Kazooie and Banjo-Tooie with Yooka-Laylee style updated visuals would be awesome as would a remaster of Conker’s Bad Fur Day (obviously!).

    The original Deus Ex would be great remastered In Unreal Engine 4 or 5 as visually the game is very dated now but the gameplay still holds up in my opinion.

    I’d also love to see a remake of Metal Gear Solid, given the full Final Fantasy 7 Remake overhaul as that classic game could definitely benefit from improved third person controls and camera but remains a great game.

    And two RPGs I would love to see properly remastered are Grandia 2 and Skies of Arcadia, which I have fond memories of from my Dreamcast days. Speaking of the Dreamcast, a remake of Resident Evil: Code Veronica, my personal favourite in the franchise, would be really nice. It was the first fully 3D rendered entry in the series but kept the restrictive mostly fixed camera angles and somewhat clunky controls. Oddly, this game has never been released on PC to my knowledge yet has been released on numerous consoles.

    Honestly?

    That's hard, I'm not really one for "remasters"... but, then again, I'm associated with the company doing Kingpin Reloaded. :p

    But me, I'd prefer to see...

    Dark Forces
    Outlaws
    Realms of the Haunting
    Requiem: Avenging Angel

    Older titles that have issues running on current hardware. Titles limited by their technology and time, titles that could actually benefit from some modern improvements.
    But, not so much "remastered" as given a few additional options and fixes to bring them up to par.


    As for a "remaster"...

    Blood II: The Chosen
    Shogo: MAD

    That's it. Both titles have amazing potential, but both were limited by a buggy, unfinished engine. A publisher that didn't care, and a rushed development cycle.
    Blood 2 is basically a very early beta build that was shoved onto store shelves just so GT Interactive could meet it's Halloween release date.

    The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena, I really like that, the first game too, Escape from Butcher Bay.

    Also... yes TimeSplitters! I had TimeSplitters 2 on GameCube... that was fun.

    JA was so amazing! I was in a clan that ran one of them "honor servers" with lightsabres only and peeps strolled around chatting, chilling and dueling. Kotor was my first western RPG and I was properly hooked and sucked into it. Got it on PC but its more unstable than my feet on a Sunday morning and doesn't properly support modern resolutions.

    As much as I want it, Konami should just stick to their mobile games.

    Yeah,Doom 3 revisited & remastered will be great made it on Vulkan.
    Metro 2033-LL nope,because is already a dungeon style game with already darker rooms.If you put ray-trace in that game will be much more darker mess.

    Nobody mentioned a remaster of Gothic II or 3.

    Maybe GTA VI will be a remastered GTA VIce city. :)

    Um.. Halo 2 Anniversary? :D

    For me it would be The Darkness, especially since there's no PC version.
