    Ninja Gaiden kicked 136837496 kinds of asses and it's looking to do it again. Bionic Commando's also looking pretty sweet.

    So which classics from the 8/16 bit era do you want to see remade? Which classic that never got a sequel deserves a hi-tech one?

    I'd like to see a good 3D Mega Man game. Of course Kid Icarus. Punch Out. I'm sure there are a lot more, but those are all I think of off the top of my head.

    When you think about it, Grabbed by the Ghoulies was actually a spiritual successor to Battletoads.

    And I really don't get the love for Battletoads. It was a clear rip-off of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, only with toads instead of turtles, and the generic "battle" instead of "Ninja" styles. It did more than TMNT ever did, especially with weaponization, but it's like comparing Doom to Wolfenstein.

    :up: These are the 3 games I"d LOVE to see get a revamp. I still play them on my computer, but man, Vectorman and Comix Zone could be badass on nex gen consoles.

    Amen to that. Only it would get ruined so much, just like NARC did. :csad:

    I absolutely loved Punch Out, Mike Tyson's Punch Out, and the SNES Super Punch Out. So yeah ... I would be down for a Punch Out update. Most definately.

    I think I will have to say Snow Bros. Or possibly a new Space Quest game (yes, not console, but still an amazing game from that era).
