    Default The Gods of Gaming smile upon you...

    ...and offer you the re-release of one game from gaming past, in full HD and all that other good stuff.

    Which game would you choose?

    Fester's Quest (NES)

    Just kidding. I'm thinking maybe Megaman Legends (PS1), or perhaps Treasures of the Deep (PS1).

    Breath of Fire 2 or 3 could look absolutely stunning with a good team behind it.

    And god knows BoF2 could use a better translation.

    In an ideal world (where I was allowed to be really greedy with my answer) I would want a FULL Kingdom Hearts collection. That's every game ported to one console and put into full HD. I would never, ever stop playing them.

    Final Fantasy IX.

    I'd want most of it to be close to the original; maybe more polys and higher texture resolution for the character models, better draw distances in the overworld, etc. Keep the pre-rendered backgrounds but have them be high-quality looping video streams with a lot of activity going on. Maybe add some voice work.

    But of course I wouldn't trust SE to make this without messing it up entirely and turning Zidane into a skimpily-dressed androgynous J-pop wannabe.

    So long as it's mostly a graphical upgrade and most of the core gameplay is remaining unchanged then any one of SMAC, Morrowind, or Deus Ex is a-ok with me.

    SMAC seems a little pointless, since that type of game isn't really about the glorious HD of it all; it's about the glorious tables of information. And Morrowind has been done, ye greedy beggar!

    Deus Ex would be sweet if it was given a decent engine.

    Oh, my choice is also FFIX, assuming the gods have also given me the power to ensure it's done properly.

    I basically want SMAC but Civ IV-ified. And Morrowind has not been done properly Morroblivion has terrible art direction and Skywind is still in alpha. I guess it doesn't really need it with Morrowind Overhaul around, though, so I'd rate it as below SMAC and Deus Ex in terms of "want".

    Seiken Densetsu 3 in high resolution 2D, and a smurfton of animation frames. Also, an official translation.

    I could settle for "3D that looks like 2D" as well, just cause it's probably easier to make nowadays. No 3D camera movement etc, with completely sprite-like shading and not even a bit more graphical depth than the original game offered with its sprites.

    Starcraft: Broodwar or Diablo 2.
