Turrican, there is no reason why a new version with the core gameplay but sparkly graphics wouldn't sell well on modern consoles.

Games like Turrican have already appeared on modern consoles and they bombed. A.R.E.S Extinction Agenda Ex immediately springs to mind. Turrican gameplay, sparkly graphics, mainstream indifference. Maybe the name "Turrican" might add another couple of hundred sales or so.

On topic, I'm another one who would welcome a new Crimson Skies.

I really want a Castlevania Legacy collection that encompasses many of the games from the 8, 16 and 32 bit eras all premastered in 1080p with lovely presentation and a music selector for each one... ah, gaming Nirvana.

I'd love to see a reboot of Star Wars: Rogue Squadron. The N64 original was SO MUCH FUN! It got a couple of sequels on the Gamecube but then disapeared... Bring it back I say!

Monty Mole. He's had his time in the sun, so Monty Returns. Needs to remain rather cutesy (a la MotR), and perhaps platforms in a 3D world and the ability to operate vehicles of any kind etc. Could even include his good buddy Sam Stoat in the story somewhere.

Or maybe Monty Apocalypse, whereupon having trained in secret in all kinds of weaponry, he rains havoc and chaos upon uncaring governments for their destruction of the planet.

Thanks to the beauty of Kickstarter, I've actually made my dreams a reality. Being a massive fan of Sierra Online adventure games, I've contributed reasonable amounts to Leisure Suit Larry (reloaded), Space Venture (Space Quest 7 in all but name and character) and Gabriel Knight enhanced.

My all time favorite game is GoldenEye 007, but even thats been reloaded already - so I'm not really sure what else I would like to see again.

I'd like to see
Road Rash - preferably in the Megadrive style not the digitised PS1 offerings - maybe cel shaded or even out and out cartoon style. No hyper realism needed.
Panzer Dragoon - Obviously Saga rebooted would be lovely but never going to happen - however still room for expansion here.
Streets of Rage - Remake all but ready for release , polish it up and get it done.
Desert Strike - maybe a HD collection?

- The Mechwarrior series. Great series, forgotten for too much time.
- The Front Mission series. Evolved was a misfire, please bring the series back to its former glory.
- The Project Gotham Racing series. I need racers as good as those.

A lot of niche suggestions will bomb. HL3 is not something I now expect in my children's lifetime though! What are they waiting for? Beyond comprehension????
