After seeing how 2 especially was butchered last gen with the HD "remaster" I'd rather Konami not touch them again. Or get Bluepoint to remake them, they've done excellent work with other games (I think they did the great MGS2 and 3 remasters). Also, if 4 ever gets remade, hopefully they can do something about the second half of the game (the really long escort mission) so that the AI behaves in a less frustrating manor. I enjoyed that game quite a bit, but that half did frustrate me at times..
I agree with Silent Hill 4 as my friend and I both had to restart Silent Hill 4 on the escort mission. She randomly goes all Ash from Evil Dead 2 she starts saying things “And God said seperate the flesh” she goes through your health like a hot knife through butter. Your apartment no longer heals you - Add in any damage she takes makes the last boss harder. Same if you take her doll just unfair bits like that that make the almost impossible to finish. And if you don’t pick up those daggers of obedience your also screwed

I would love Burning Rangers HD remake as it’s a game I always wanted to play. Insanely expensive to buy and the 3d is looking a dated.

The other game is Illbleed a really unique game that Sega really needs to release in HD with extra bits.

Actually that's a really good shout!

Along the same lines but far more obscure, I'd love to see a remaster of BattleMorph from the Jaguar CD. A simply amazing game that hardly anyone got to play sadly.
That's a whole system that hardly anyone got to play :D

I had a go at installing the emulator on retropie a while ago, but it doesn't seem to be terribly well optimised for ARM hardware

Jaguar emulation isn't terribly well optimised on ANY hardware and a large portion of games won't work at all.

The Jaguar CD can't be emulated full-stop.

The Onimusha games, or the first 2 Dino Crisis games.

It's a bizarre and complex architecture. But the 68k has been emulated very well, and the other chips are RISC processors, so it would surely be possible to optimise it for an ARM chip. Whether anyone is going to go to that degree of effort for such a niche system is another matter entirely. I didn't realise that the Jaguar CD was more than just a CD drive.

I am a sucker for the old arcade racing games of the 90's, So in reponse to the Jaguar discussion I would like, and I do realise its a strange one, a redone Checkered flag.

I think it has potential, and an updated version on modern hardware with a smoother framerate and controls reconfigured for an analogue stick would be my choice out of all the Jaguar games.

Huge fan of Virtua racing bu the way, so that explains it a bit.

Mystical Ninja/Mystical Ninja 2 from the N64. Cracking games that fully deserve a new audience.

Some I'd love to see:

The Last Ninja - C64. This is the killer app for the C64. I'd love to see this updated to snes level gfx. Keep the awesome SID music.

All 3 of the 16 bit Shadowrun games - Shadowrun on the snes is one of my favorite games of all time. The Megadrive game is not bad either. The 3rd entry was only released in Japanese on the Sega Mega CD, so I've never played it. But I'd love to see remasters of all 3 with the Sega CD game translated to English.

Ninja Golf (Atari 7800) - An extremely original game. Ninja action + golf. It shouldn't work but somehow it does and its a great game. Love to see a remaster with upgraded gfx.

I've said this one before myself! I did a video recently looking at games I would like to see remastered or re-released for the new Atari VCS and that was one of them.

I was lucky enough to interview the programmer a few years back and I am still hoping to do a Making of Ninja Golf in the magazine.
