Growing up, I was introduced to video games at a young age when my father came home with a Playstation console. So naturally the majority of my list will be games available on that console. If you agree with my list, I encourage anyone who reads this to share with friends and gaming pages in hopes that maybe, just maybe we will get a remake of one of these great games!
5. Spyro the Dragon (1998)
When the evil Gnasty Nork turns the Elder Dragons to stone and steals their precious dragon eggs, its up to a young dragon named Spyro to defeat him and return peace to the world of dragons!
With addicting gameplay, a stellar soundtrack, and a lighthearted storyline, Spyro the Dragon will always hold a special place in my heart.
4. Pokemon Red/Blue (1998)
"You've finally been granted your Pokémon Trainer's license. Now, it's time to head out to become the world's greatest Pokémon Trainer. It's going to take all you've got to collect 150 Pokémon in this enormous world. Catch and train monsters like the shockingly-cute Pikachu. Face off against Blastoise's torrential water cannons. Stand strong when facing Pidgeot's stormy Gust. Trade with friends and watch your Pokémon evolve. Important—no single Pokémon can win at all. Can you develop the ultimate Pokémon strategy to defeat the eight Gym Leaders and become the greatest Pokémon Master of all time?" (bulbapedia)
Growing up with two little brothers and three cousins that all wanted to be Pokemon masters, I have logged thousands of hours into this turn based rpg. Now I know what your all thinking... they already remade those!
Yes, yes, I know these were some pretty freaking rad remakes! But, what I would really like to see, is these classic games remade for the 3DS much like the Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire games.
3. Kingdom Hearts 1 & 2 (2002 & 2005)
A fast paced sword fighting mash up between Final Fantasy and the worlds of Disney, with a unique and emotional storyline. Need I say more?
The announcement has been made that there is a third installment in the works, is it too much to ask for a remastered collection of the first two when the third is finally released?
2. Sly Cooper and the Thievius Raccoonus (2002)
"Sly Cooper, aided by his friends Bentley and Murray, breaks into police headquarters in Paris by obtaining a police file on the Fiendish Five, a gang of unique and dangerous criminals. He hastily exits just as Interpol Agent Carmelita Montoya Fox arrives and attempts to capture him. Reviewing the file, Sly explains how he is latest in the Cooper Clan, a family of master thieves who only steal from other criminals, and the heir to the Thievius Raccoonus, an assembled ledger of the skills of the various members of the Cooper Clan, which can teach a person how to become a master thief. However, on the night he was supposed to receive the book, his home was raided by the Fiendish Five who killed Sly's father and each took sections of the book with them before going their separate ways. Sly wound up in an orphanage, where he met Bentley and Murray. Together, they plotted to track down the Fiendish Five, avenge Sly's father and reclaim the Thievius Raccoonus." (Wikipedia.org)
Great stealth based gameplay, and an amazing soundtrack. One of the first stealth based games I ever picked up and easily one of my favorites. (Sorry Ezio...)
Oh and by the way... they're making a movie!
1. Tomb Raider (1996)
"The story opens with a prologue in Los Alamos County, New Mexico, when a nuclear test causes a great explosion which exposes an ancient device buried beneath the desert surface. The device unlocks and reveals a person in suspended animation. The story then continues in the present day at a hotel in present day Calcutta, Lara Croft is approached by an American named Larson Conway, who works for the wealthy businesswoman Jacqueline Natla, owner of Natla Technologies. At Natla's request, Lara sets out on an expedition to recover a mysterious artifact called the Scion (/ˈskiː.ɒn/) from the lost tomb of Qualopec, in the mountains of Peru. After successfully retrieving the object, she is attacked by Larson who attempts to claim it. She beats him then questions him, learning that the artifact she has is only a fragment and that a man named Pierre Dupont has been hired by Natla to collect the rest." (wikipedia.org)
Having been released only three years after my birth, this was the first video game of any kind that I picked up. This game was remade in 2007, however it just didn't seem to live up to my impression of the original. I would really love to see this game remade with next technology!
