    Neverhood !!!!! [​IMG]
    Dune
    Dune 2
    Warcraft 1,2
    Starcraft
    System shock
    Terranova: Strike Force Centaury
    Mechwarrior (NOT Mechassault)

    All of LucasArts' adventures (I am aware of SCUMM VM, I would still like a DS remake, with extra features)

    All of Sierra's adventures, only replace the command line with point-and-click

    Ummm [​IMG] That's all for now, but I'll think of more later...

    Love to see a Half Life attempted, especially if you could play mods (I need They Hunger on the go!) and also imagine how much fun Counterstrike or Team Fortress would be.

    Alien Breed! It had great atmosphere, but not the FPS ones.

    It Came From Outer Space, Hotel Dusk fans would enjoy that oldie.

    Warcraft and Starcraft of course.

    I think with the DS it should be possible to do some old school point and click adventures like Sam & Max or Monkey Island [​IMG]


    P.S. @Veho
    umm Mechwarrior ??? dunno if part 1 use less buttons cuz i only played 3 but with the DS you would never have enough buttons to play this game ...

    Oh also Traffic Department 2192 or most Apogee and Epic Megagames games.

    Oh and Descent would rock.

    Quake 3 using Quake 2 engine but Quake 3 levels and stuff.

    I could go on but I wont no longer.

    I had forgotten about Epic games. The Epic pinball games would be great on the ds.

    I gave that a lot of thought, actually.

    D-pad - torso,
    L and R - legs,
    Y and B - throttle,
    A - fire,
    X- cycle weapons
    Touchscreen: everything else (radar, map, sensors, orders, flush coolant, etc.)

    Alternatively, the throttle could be a strip on the right side of the touchscreen.

    EDIT: Jumpjets are for losers!!!

    EDIT EDIT: I just thought of a game: Incubation! It was great! And I think the DS could pull it off.

    I didn't, it can easily be played with the Scumm emulator, I would however love a proper release with Maniac Mansion built in.

    Duke Nukem 3d, Shadow Warrior, Halloween Harry/Alien Carnage,Leisure Suit Larry, Simon the sorcerer games [​IMG]

    Not really old PC games, but I wonder if the DS is powerful enough for old arcade games like CPS1 (SF2, Punisher, Cadillacs n Dinosaurs, etc)

    Space Ace, Dragon's Lair 1-2. i know it's possible because a few levels of DL1 have been done @ http://www.ds-video.com/dslair/

    And they look quite nice
