    Seeing how great Resident Evil 4 is with the new controls, what else would you like to see remade for Wii with motion controls?

    I obviously would like to see Metroid Prime 1 & 2. They could do it just like they'll with Metroid Prime 3.

    Also Mario Sunshine and Luigi's Mansion would work well imho.

    i don't think there should be any more sequels/wiimakes for the wii - the wii needs really good original games, rather than regurgitating the same old thing console after console. New games would better use the wii controls than any wiimake should.

    I can't think of many games on the GC that would support the Wiimote effectively, bar the sports games

    I'm not against any GC games coming over to the Wii as a lot of classics were ignored and deserve a bigger audience. Theres a few Japanese titles that never made it to English speaking shores as well that I'd like to see. Would love to see the likes of Giftpia come over to the Wii.


    Can't say I'm into all these PSP/PS2 titles as most aren't really that great anyway, but saying that its never a bad thing seeing more titles head to the Wii regardless of their roots.

    There aren't that many games that could be improved with the wiimote, the first/third person shooters are obvious, but at the moment alot of devs are either not used to the system or lazy.
    We should be looking more to what can the Wii do to existing and new genres/IPs rather than what it can do for old, especially last gen, games.

    A remake of a game that was released in the previous generation shouldn't be even thought of unless it can actually bring something new. Like Resident Evil on the gamecube.

    That's my most wanted title too. I still haven't played it though I'd love to. It's not like I haven't got a Gamecube or something, I just haven't got the game [​IMG]

    Not that many memerable GC were ever released. Sequels will be way better. Resident Evil 4 was just another cash in for capcom. If I was nintendo I would have told them were to stick the game on the wii and not let them release it. I still haven't forgot that Resident Evil 4 was meant to be exclusive and eventually released on the PS2. Capcom to me were responsible for killing the GC.

    Wii remakes of Metroid Prime 1 & 2 as a bonus to Metroid Prime 3 would be great

    At least Capcom bothered making games for the GC! Can't say that about most publishers during the few years of the GC life.

    Blame Nintendo for their poor marketing, ideas that don't appeal to the none hardcore, no online gaming and many other things they failed to do. Thankfully they've realised what went wrong and have the success of the Wii.

    Nintendo will probably make some during a drought or next year (As we are getting are big 3 this year and are other big title came last year (MP3, SSBB, SMG and Zelda TP)). I think we could see:
    Killer 7
    Legend of Zelda Windwaker
    Metroid Prime 1 / 2
    Pikmin 1 / 2
    Super Mario Sunshine
    MAYBE Geist

    killer 7
    Metroid prime
    Metroid Prime Echoes
    Wind Waker (wide screen alone would be awesome)
    Super Mario Sunshine (again wide screen alone, but I guess controlling fludd could be cool)
    pikmin 1 and 2 would be cool also

    What's wrong with MP 1+2 as it is? We don't need no wiimote controls thanks. Same thing goes with the other Nintendo lead franchises.

    Now Killer 7, that would be a fine candidate, but the game is pretty meh. Pikmin is a no-brainer. How about Ikaruga too?

    I think there's nothing wrong with such remakes as Resident Evil 4 as long as they are selled for 30 bucks only and not full-priced *coughPrinceOfPersiacough*.

    I proper remake of Geist would be great, get rid of the slowdown and add some online play and it'll be a great game instead of a flawed one.

    I never really liked any GC games except for Wind Waker. If they're going to re-make anything, it should be A Link to the Past using the TP engine.

    lttp would translate fine to 3d, it is the building block of zelda games remember

    only thing is dungeons would be kinda simple in 3d, seeing as the puzzles were designed in 2 dimensions etc
