    That's the one!



    (The Orz are awesome).

    In my opinion, Imperial Glory is a bit better than the Napoleonic Total War mod, though they're both quite good.

    I never played the sequel, but I played Starflight many times on the Sega Genesis (my dad played it through once too if I recall).

    Another awesome classic: Star Control II.

    Someone actually updated it for the PC (freeware), and I played through it again on that a few months ago.

    Another old DOS title I'd like to see redone would be Fields Of Glory. This was a pretty entertaining game about Napoleon and the battle of Waterloo. You could also fight Quatre Bras, Ligny, and Wavre as well with a couple of made up battles thrown in for good measure. Pretty realistic as far as troop movements and how much punishment they could take before 'routing'. Very easy to play for the time.

    I recently got that game; kind of interesting, but the controls seem somewhat awkward to me. Also I thought the battles got a bit blotchy and hard to watch when you have a few units all together going at it.

    Neat looking game, though:

You built your own ship and constantly upgraded with the money you earned by exploring the galaxy. You could even land on planets and put different life and plant forms in stasis and take them back to earn money. It came with a fold out map of the galaxy and we used to mark on it where all the different jump points were and where they led. It was awesome!! We played that for hours and hours. I would really love to see that upgraded and redone with today's technology.

    6. Wasteland - 1988
    Would be slick to see Wasteland redone using the FIFE (Fallout) engine:

    There are some guys doing a massive decompilation of the original Wasteland files, you can find their wiki here:

    Lucas Arts "Secret Weapons of the Luftwaffe" was a great Flight sim and a remastered version would be brilliant.

    Also They have yet to better the mighty "Elite"

    Hello,

    There are only TWO games I demand to be remade: Wing Commander and Mechwarrior 2!

    MW 2 is a classic, one of the best combat sim games out there. I could remember days when I sat in front of my computer, refighting the battles agan and again just because it was SO fun!

    Wing Commander is a game I really WANTED to play, but never got a chance. Ironically, one of the very FIRST computer games I bought as a kid was Wing Commander III, probably one of the best Wing Commander games if only because it was live action with real actors and a good storyline.

    True, I still remember the "3D" view from Pool of Radiance and such. They could use the engine from Company of Heroes, that would work well.

    I've come around to the fact that games could actually benefit from it (as opposed to movies generally).

    One I'd love to see is the first Silent Hill (and the early Resident Evils). I'd love to see them revamped more similar to Resident Evil 4.
