Yours is not a direct remake correct? There is already a remake out there that is a true remake:

That's a tough one.

Krondor or Starflight. I just can't make a pick.

Seven Cities of Gold would be nice, but it would probably suck as the first remake did. The remake altered the gameplay for worse without any apparent reason.

These two plus Ultima 7 would make me very happy. Also, an updated version of Ultima Underworld.

Daggerfall would get my vote as well.

I'd rebuy Kronder in about 3 seconds flat if I knew for certain it would work on my current system, without any mods or messing with my setup. While not rolling your own character was a minor letdown, the story more than compensated for it.

Wasteland. The humor and story was so fun back in the day.

No definitely not a remake. Unfettered is in the same genre and very similar to Privateer or Freelancer but not related at all in story or setting to either.

I'm encouraged to see all the clamors for Betrayal at Krondor remake though. If I have any success whatsoever with Unfettered, a BaK style'd game was on my short list for my next project.

Agreed…or possibly Wizardry 7.

Do that and I'll buy 10 copies at a minimum. Possibly even more. I'll gift them to strangers ffs!!!

After U7, I'd probably go with Savage Empire then Martian Dreams.

Branching out from Ultima though, I'd love to see WC1 & 2 remade at the quality of WC4, and I'd love to see a 3-D remake of Quest for Glory 1 & 2.

Trust me, most of the names I have been called you can't translate in any language…they're not even real words as much as a succession of violent images.

Darklands with some rebalancing so that all skills become meaningful (I wouldnt touch the combat mechanics and menu driven interface though, those are fairly user friendly and fast by modern standards as well).

Ultima Underworld 1 and 2 with a modern engine would also be neat.

Without a doubt - Uncharted Waters 2. The magic of the setting was so powerful; you knew what was going to be uncovered on the map, but the shapes of these ostensibly familiar coastlines were still confusing enough up close. If they could make the world a few times larger, it would be so, so, so compelling.

I can't think of a single classic game I'd like to see a remake off. That's probably because I've never really seen a good remake. Anyone have any examples of one?

How many remakes have there been though? If you think about it, very few classics have been remade up to this point. Video games are still a fairly young form of media, and I don't think we've reached the point yet where we're seeing much of an effort to remake many older titles.
