    I'd say X-Com but it looks to actually be getting it so instead:

    Master of Orion
    Wing Commander (or they could just finish the new trilogy they started with 5...that would be nice)
    Master of Magic

    Baulders Gate.

    I was really disappointed that a 360 version was never released. The top down hack n slash rpg genre really disappeared in the latest console gen. Maybe diablo 3 will resurrect this great genre.

    A proper reboot, that new Ubisoft crap doesn't count

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]

    Again, Bioshock doesn't count

    There's this Elemental game from Stardock, but apparently they really, really screwed it up and released a barely playable game. They're making an improved version of it though, so I'd keep an eye on that one

    The original single player game never got a proper sequel (the disaster that went by the name Unreal 2 certainly doesn't count)

    I'd love a reboot/rework of sorts for the Dynasty Warriors series.

    I have 1 through 6, and aside from graphics, some game features, characters, etc. it's the exact same game and interface. I'd love a more in-depth editor for character attributes and weapons. A new HUD would be welcomed as well.

    Granted, I've yet to pick up 7.

    You're the last person I'd expect to be into the Dynasty Warriors series. :lol:

    7 is better than 6, even if it's not saying all too much. The story mode IIRC seem to almost follow history, like say, if you choose Shu, then play Changban, you control Zhao Yun, then switches to Zhang Fei. Plus the Jing faction is a great addition.

    Have you tried the other spinoffs? Samurai Warriors (Japan equivalent), Warriors Orrochi (crossover of both), Gundam (haha) etc. Koei have made so many variations of the same gameplay. :lol:

    Do the Dynasty Warriors: Gundam series count? :lol:

    I think I might treat myself to DW:G3, as I loved the ever living hell out of 1 and 2.

    Also another game that needs a makeover:

    [​IMG]

    EDIT: And since Chrono Trigger got an iPhone release, this needs a reboot also:

    It certainly does count, and I too loved DW:G2 and 3.

    And I think this may interest you:

    All of these may be added to my list.

    I don't think Ubisoft gets what made the Heroes games great at all.

    :agreed:

    I've never played a Dynasty Warriors that wasn't a ton of fun. I love the series.

    You just hurt my soul severely, Baldurs gate 3 was just a name drop and terrible excuse for a game, disgracing the gold box glory that was BG I and II :lol: You can't reboot some of the best RPGs ever.

    Definitely the old spyro games, and i agree with pooluke (awesome name btw) gateway to glimmer was amazing.

    i know syndicate is getting a reboot, but it's a shooter, instead of a tactical rts game. which i'm quite disapointed with.

    Castlevania (in listing this, I mean to say that we need a current/future gen Symphony of the Night/RPG from the series)
    Final Fantasy (bring back the open map roaming or go away)

    A big hells yeah to the Heroes needing a reboot, I lost interest after 3. 1 is a huge favorite of mine given the awesomr cloud of blood that happens when you kill a guy.

    Legend of Dragoon would be fantastic to see with a reboot and on 360 vs just PS3; that game was the fucking tits.
