When I was growing up one of my favourite games was IK+

also Chambers of Shaolin on Amiga

any others? I wish they’d remake them
 
Since you brought up the Amiga...

Battle Isle on the Amiga

Super Cars 2 on the Amiga

Lotus 2 on the Amiga

Lethal Weapon on the Amiga

Sensible Soccer on the Amiga

James Pond 2: Codename: Robocod on the Amiga

Some banging soundtracks here too.

Loved sensible soccer!
 
Vagrant Story.

Set itself up for a sequel, well liked and very well reviewed. Never seen again.
 
PES 2-6. The gameplay, editing players, teams, kits, making the secret Nike boots, The Master League with this legend.

Streets of rage was always a go to for me

the newly streets of rage 4 was actually really good along with tmnt shredders revenge.

The simplicity of a side scroller was fantastic
 
PES 2-6. The gameplay, editing players, teams, kits

Football games peaked in that era. An HD remake of PES 3 or 4 (I never played 5 and 6) with the exact same gameplay and options plus the ability to play online would be amazing.
 
The original RE trilogy. The remakes were great, particularly 1 and 2 but i'd love for them to release the PS1 games for a modern console (like the recent Tomb Raider trilogy).
 
Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic is the one I get most nostalgic about, that and Battlefront 2.
 
Would a lot of games work now or are they too boring? Frogger, Prince of Persia (2D), Duke Nukem (2D), Slicks n Slide, Micro machines, Sonic, Worms, etc.
 
Elite on the Commodore 64
I would love to see a complete remake of Full Throttle with the graphics and motion capture of today
 
Railroad Tycoon - first PC game I ever played
 
Vagrant Story.

Masterpiece from Square. So many SNES JRPGs that I loved growing up. Chrono Trigger, Final Fantasy 6. I'd add Xenogears too on PS1.

Shadow Hearts 1&2.

Sensible Soccer - spent hours over the weekends playing with my mates as a kid.

Lemmings, Batman, Monkey Island and the Dizzy games on Amiga.
 
Starcraft 64 (N64)

Cyber Empires (PC)

Tie Fighter (PC)

Scorched Earth (PC)

Uniracers (Super Nintendo)

Journey (Arcade)

Joust (Arcade)
 
Bring back Cannon Fodder! Syndicate, Moonstone, Shadow of the Beast. How they haven't jumped on Chrono Trigger I'll never know. I want another FMV Gabriel Knight ala The Beast Within as well.

So many great shouts already. Scorched Earth took over our college class. Tutors were trying to teach and we'd all be huddled around one comp on SE, Champ Man or playing doom on the lan. Also where I discovered Neo Geo emulators, Turf Masters ftw.

I found a website recently where you can play tons of old games in you browser, not sure if I got it off here or not so I won't post it as I'm not sure of legality etc.. Dm me if you would like to research its legality.

Oh man, I've just remembered.. Ecstatica! The atmosphere in that game alone warrants an updated version.
 
Theme Park / Theme Hospital
Command and Conquer
Championship Manager
 
International Karate? Rings a bell.

I miss GoldenEye64. Best FPS experience for me so far. There was a good copy cat franchise with a woman as the protagonist but that died too.

And there was an open world Robin Hood game for the Amiga which I‘ve played for an hour at my cousin and never again. Stuck in my head.

Ultima
 
Loved playing Champions of Norrath with my friends via multitab for PS

Also the old wrestling games, tried playing 2k wrestling the other day and it just didn't do it

Lot of other games obviously as well, we used to play a good war game together but name escapes me, also multitab four together

Guess I just miss couch co-op
 
Red Alert 2

Yuris Revenge was the best one

Loved Monkey Island and all the LucasArts games on the IBM originally, Sensible Soccer was great but I used to play this really obsecure game called OneNil, first dip into a management sim then Tactical Manager (usually playing as Forest to start) and Champ Man 94+
 
  • King's Quest, Police Quest
  • Double Dragon
  • Monkey Island
  • Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade
  • Budukan
  • Top Gun
  • Battlefront
  • Shadow of the Colossus
  • Bubble Bobble

Played Monkey Island two years ago..still think it‘s great. Played wiith the og graphics as well and not the new ones.

those old point n click masterpieces hold up the best by far
 
Mainly Command & Conquer for me. Specifically the Westwood ones. In a parallel universe, I think Westwood would have been one of the biggest video game dev companies around.

Some of the projects they had pre-financial problems and pre-EA looked very ambitious and ahead of their time. C&C Sole Survivor was like the first MOBA game made and now MOBAs are one of the most played video game genres in the world thanks to League of Legends and DOTA.

No Mercy and WCW vs NWO were elite games on the N64.

Me too, replayed them both (I do not recognise three onwards) ahead of Return and enjoyed them, I even had to cheat at certain points. Loads of retro games still hold up, especially things like side scrolling platformers where the genre was perfected. Even more complicated games, Daggerfall, for example, is essentially Starfield.
 
I miss a few arcades. My all time favourite was Altered Beast. Shout outs for:

Pacland
Robocop
Operation Wolf
Star Wars

Went to Arcade Club in Bury a good few years back now just to recapture some nostalgia.
