    In the same vein as "Existing Games you'd love to be DS'ed", I ask a simple question: What games from GameBoy, GameBoy Color, and NES would you like to see remade for GameBoy Advance and/or Nintendo DS? Yesterday I was thinking about classic game titles for some reason, and realised that we may have seen the last of our classic GB/C games outside of roms. Due to the fact that the virtual console on Wii probably won't support them, and the fact that the DS system isn't backwards compatible. Then there's NES games, which we will see on Wii, but I for one consider most of them unplayable by today's standards (they're too hard, too 8-bit, and too basic).

    As far as I'm concerned, this is the perfect time for developers to start overhauling old games, and releasing them as 2D remakes for either the GBA, or the DS. Some perfect examples of classic remakes are Metroid: Zero Mission (a remake of Metroid for NES), Sword of Mana (a remake of Seiken Densetsu/Final Fantasy Adventure, for GameBoy), and Kirby: Nightmare In Dreamland (a remake of Kirby's Adventure for NES). All of which were remade for GameBoy Advance. So I ask again:

    What games from GameBoy, GameBoy Color, and NES would you like to see remade for GameBoy Advance and/or Nintendo DS?

    *Ahem* I'll start, I suppose. Let me see... Metroid 2: Return of Samus, Super Mario Bros 1 (the features of Super Mario Bros. Deluxe, with the graphics and gameplay of of the All-Star SNES version. Plus the added touches of the GBA remakes of the other Mario games), Super Mario Bros: The Lost Levels (same as before), and most of all the 2 Super Mario Land games (1 remade with All-Star SMB graphics, and 2 with Super Mario World graphics). Infact, I'd like to see all the 2D Mario games released in some sort of "Super Mario All-Stars DS" game. And that's all I can think of off the top of my head.


    P.S. - Only games from GameBoy/Color, and NES please.

    Heh, I knew someone would mention these. I for one consider them to be a few of the only truely playable games of the GBC era. However, really, most GBC games are fairly playable... it's the old NES and GB games which need some updating. And in some cases they don't even need gameplay updating, but some graphical updating and gameplay tweaks are always nice.

    No, but maybe a game similiar to goonies 2? Like 2d lvl buildup gameplay as in the castlevania series but when he enters one of those places it goes 3d.

    NES - Bible Adventures. And I'd play it right after I punched myself in the jewels until they were swollen and discolored.

    Really though - Super Dodge Ball and obviously M.U.L.E. (c64, not NES engine)

    Woot!

    edit: come to think of it, they did make a GBA dodge ball but I thought it was flea.

    Yep....but Im loyal to my Idea of a WiFi RCR where you can build gangs and go kick asses around the world. Not a remake. I know, I know...lil off topic.

    Peace

    Well, one would assume the remakes would be in color. It would be somewhat pointless otherwise~. [​IMG]
