I remebered another couple of games I'd loved to see get ported one day:
Sonic (Arcade) Isometric Sonic game that was only ever released in the arcades and used a trackball to control movement. I'd love to get it as I love Sonic
RAVE RACER: Aw man this game is great. I can never understand why this was never released as Ridge Racer is a fantastic series. It's emulated extremely well but I would love a PSP release or have its tracks incorporated into Ridge Racer 8
Mario Kart (1 and 2) It would be nice to see home ports of both Mario Kart arcade games, or at least have them turn up in the Wii version.
Planet Harriers: Space Harrier sequel that was apparantly up for a Gamecube release (that never happenned).
After Burner Climax: I want to play this SOOOOO much but all we got was the good (but not the same) PSP version. Outrun 2 was eventually released so I live in hope this will be to.
R-Types for me is the best way to play R-Type at home, they are the arcade games. The first version of R-Type i completed was the Sega Master System version, a good conversion but some of the levels seemed even harder then the Arcade (the factory level springs to mind). If i remember correctly some of tracks from Rave Racer were included in Ridge Racers for the PSP, not an arcade conversion which I agree seems strange. I seem to remember a PS1 version being announced and then cancelled?
Yes I want to see the new afterburner game it seems like a return to form any home conversions need to be on the PS3 or 360 though to do it justice as it basically runs on a board that is a custom top end PC
I might have to try my SMS version of R-Type out some time to see how it fairs compared to the arcade version, your right about Ridge Racers having Rave tracks in it, just not all of them unfortuantely.
I remeber it was announced for the PC at one stage, I think Namco was planning to release it with a Graphics Card or something along those lines but it never came to pass unfortunately.
Not sure about a PSOne version, that would have done incredibly well if released so it makes no sense why it wasn't.
I think the 360 could pull off a good, or perhaps arcade perfect port of Afterburner Climax, it's just up to Sega to port it or not.
I also want House of the Dead 4 ported but can't decide which platform would be best. The Wii has the motion technology not to mention it wouldn't even need a lightgun to play like the arcade version but the graphics would have to be downgraded, the 360 and PS3 should be able to handle it but would need a motion sensitive lightgun to play just like the arcade version.
I wonder if Sega will port it, the Wii may not have the looks but it has got Ghost Squad (From Sega of all people!) and Resident Evil Umbrella Chronicles coming which both look like great lightgun games, but on the other hand Time Crisis 4 is coming to the PS3 (and 360?) with a Guncon 3 lightgun.
One thing is for sure, I'd buy it if it came out regardless of the console!
