Um … isn't every game mentioned in this thread a PC game?

Thing is, re-releasing these things for PC in their 2D state wouldn't sell … but on a GBA or even DS screen they get tremendous flexibility and don't have to totally redo the graphics.

Look at Age of Empires: Age of Kings for the DS - they turned it from RTS to TBS and integrated touch screen and other elements, and it was brilliant! Not perfect, but a really good game that was completely independent of the PC and yet felt like playing a PC game.
