Exile 1, 2, and 3. Oh….

On a serious note there is the game that according to dte should not be mentioned in polite circles: mm9. But that would perhaps take more than a mere remaster.

A pibbur whose credibility is permanently destroyed by completing said game.

Also want to mention Ultima IV.
Not a good game by today's standards, but still the best game to teach you be a better person overall.
Ultima IV tells a few things about virtues without feeling a freaking TV evangelist -- youngsters of today need some moral guidance, and this game made preaching cool.

I'll vote Betrayal at Krondor. Never played it and would love to, but I find it hard to stomach in its current form.

Off topic, but he's the guy who repeatedly commanded the virus to leave, and (repeatedly) claimed it was gone.

A pibbur who thinks the virus is still alive and kicking.

Dark Heart of Ukrul is the first game that jumps to mind, I loved that game, although if I were to remake it, I’m not really sure what aspects of the game I’d focus on as being iconic. I did try replaying it with an emulator once, and while it worked ok, I wasn’t sure it aged well, and you definitely needed a manual open in front of you for the magic system.

Betrayal at Krondor would probably be a better remake. I replayed that too and it definitely aged better. It also has a distinct style that I could imagine being translated to a modern game.

Lands of lore for sure.
I would also love to see a remaster/remake of a game called Captive, I believe it was an Amiga/ Atari St exclusive when it came out, but is now available via Dos box. It's a dungeon crawler with RPG elements. The story is so simple and yet you just can't stop until you complete it.
I don't remember the exact story, but basically you have been exiled and imprisoned in a cell on a planet and have no idea where you are, all you have in the cell is a briefcase that you find you can remotely control four robots. once you have personalized /named them you set about traveling to every planet/dungeons picking up the next clues/probes until you eventually find the right planet and they unlock the door to your cell. Brilliant.

Lands of Lore has aged so gracefully, and is still as charming as I recall. However, it is a pain to get to work on newer monitors, especially if you have wide-screen.

Well, they didn't have to be as politically correct back then…

Albion. The demo for this one was my first RPG - and my first encounter with motion sickness. But the story is so good, and I love the culture of the Iskai. It deserves a remake, so everyone can see that planet in all its glory.

I remember several years back, Neal Hallford (designer of BaK) expressed interest in Kickstarting a remake. Unfortunately, he looked into it and wasn't able to get the license.
