Realms of the Haunting really did have some very good atmosphere back in the days. I really liked the beginning with the car at night through the rain video and entering the house. Walking through the chambers... rain and thunder... Great stuff. Never finished it though. It deserves an article.

How about the fantastic Gargoyle Games? Tir Na Nog, Marsport, Heavy on the Magick et al
Or does my failing brain prove me wrong again?

Would be interested in seeing Castlevania 2: Simon's Quest and Metroid discussed. For Metroid, there's gotta be someone other than Gunpei who's still alive who worked on it! For Simon's Quest, it'd be interesting to hear what the team thinks of the genre they started with Metroidvanias.

How about a feature on the laser disk games of the early 80's? There were many of them - Dragon's Lair and Space Ace of course, but I also remember a Firefox one (based on the Clint Eastwood film I believe...), also other shooters, and one where your rode a motorcycle in space. These articles should have many pictures of said games too.

Nothing specific, but I've always said more import classics is always a good thing. Little gems most of us may never have heard of always interest me.

Zool

heaven's above, where to start. Well I'll narrow it down to the most urgent at the forefront of my mind.

Personal Nightmare (Amiga). Hard as hell but there's no other game quite like it.
Resident Evil series. Probably not quite retro yet though but getting there.
Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy (Apple II). Probably a bit hard though since Douglas Adams is no longer with us.
Shadow of The Beast series, or perhaps something on Psygnosis.
A fiery article with Jack Tramiel. Just for a laugh.
Wonderboy (C64, arcade). I still love this game.

Well they are the most pressing and urgent for me. And hey, throw in Salamander (Arcade, C64) for good measure, how good a shoot-em-up was that? Well I'd better stop there otherwise will go on all day.

Issue 45 has the making of this game; it's a candid and funny interview with Steve Meretzky who details his time working with Adams on the game. (This is on the game in general, not specifically the Apple II release, but given that's it's Infocom, the game on each platform is the same.)

Another I'd love to see. Another I've tried to sort (and I'm 100% certain I'm not the only one). Sadly, Mr Woakes isn't too talkative.
Any chance of seeing a feature on the three Mercenary games even with out Mr Woakes involvement.
Would like to see the box art for Mercenary on the front cover of Retro Gamer.
