Default Name an RPG younger people haven't heard of, deserving of a remaster.

Old Timers, what game deserves a remaster? No Fallouts, Wizardry, M&M, TES, or other well-known/modern franchises allowed.

My vote goes to Ravenloft: Strahd's Possession

How about all games have a single huge lootbox you pay for up front that contains all the options, items, skins, unlocks etc? I'd pay for that!!

I wouldn't mind seeing Dark Sun: Shattered Lands re-imagined. Never saw enough of that setting, IMO.

Not personally interested in remastered anything, but I'll take this opportunity to shout out my favorite dungeon crawler of all time (and one that nobody ever mentions), Alternate Reality: The Dungeon.

Oh, and Darklands.

Half of those aren't RPGs.

Good thread!
My vote goes to the Faery Tale Adventure:

Edit: I really must play the old Ravenloft and Dark Sun games at some point…

+1 for Ultima Underworld and perhaps, since it's not that old, Wizardy VIII without excessive respawning trashmobs (it's a Joxerianism, hence the italic).

Keep the dungeons, etc, just make it a blobber.

Also, I'd like to see a remake of Legend, aka The Four Crystals of Trazere

Played the hell out of that on my Amiga.

I guess I qualify as "young gamers" since I haven't played anything pre 1998. I do wish gold box games will be remastered so I can finally experience them.

Dragon Wars could use some QoL upgrades as well

Although I had neither the manual nor the internet the first time I played it, it might have helped
