Morning Discussion

With Monkey Island 2 Special Edition: LeChuck's Revenge hitting PC and the Xbox Live Arcade today (and PS3 last night) I wonder what other titles deserve the re-release treatment.

Not all games need a full high-definition remake to showcase how fantastic they are (Beneath a Steel Sky: Remastered, says hello); however, some old favorites deserve some present-day attention.

The somewhat-recent addition of the Gabriel Knight series on Good Old Games, coupled with The Journeyman Project 2: Buried In Time, are some examples of old classics that have re-captured my imagination and heart.

What I'd love to see is a re-release of the classic console Shadowrun titles. I'm partial to the SNES version but wouldn't complain to get the Genesis version instead. Let's hope that somewhere the team at Smith and Tinker (current licensees of the Shadowrun property) have big, non-FPS related plans for the franchise. They seem like smart chaps.

What classics do you want to see return to the modern era?
