I actually thought U9 was pretty cool, but I also wasn't an old-school Ultima fan that had played every game. I finished Ultima III Exodus on the NES but that was pretty much it. I would definitely be interested in a remaster of U9 if it were to happen.

I'd replay them all if remastered, heck, I still replay the ones I'm able to now, every several years or so.

Well how about a bet Skyrim gets another new console edition upgrade.

Look at Dying Light that game wont die either.

Well not a graphic redo, UI re design, many changes, and perhaps this time all skills implemented. I started play it and felt some changes was less good than original design, and I lost the motivation, perhaps another time.

Citadel: Adventure of the Crystal Keep.

Perhaps with the remake I'll achieve free the Princess without having the hint book. :-) Do it isn't required but not do it is missing a lot of cool stuff.

It would be a cheap remake, for a sort of indie release, but I'd be fine with that.

Mars Saga. Played it on my C64 years ago. Fun top-down/first-person adventure/RPG SF game that takes place in martian colonies. You could explore martian caves and stuff outside the dome too.

Starflight I (or II). This never had a proper remaster AFAIK though I saw something from an amateur developer a few years ago that seemed half-assed and missing tons of features.

Neuromancer (of course). Not RPG (more in the adventure genre) but the later Shadowrun for the Sega Genesis heavily re-used and enhanced it's cyberspace fighting systems.

Legend of Blacksilver (same engine as Legacy of the Ancients). Only released on the C64.

Battletech: The Crescent Hawks Inception. Baby's first RPG. Or at least my first RPG.

One of the co-creators launched a crowdfunding campaign for a sequel a couple years back, and what they showed looked like it had potential, but unfortunately they didn't reach their goal. Afaik, the project is dead now.

I will join the masses and say Betrayal at Krondor. Wonderful game but the graphics have aged very badly, almost unplayable now.

Honestly, even without being updated, you are doing yourself a huge disservice if you've never played Betrayal at Krondor. Most games these days wish they were a tenth as good as BaK is.

I've tried playing BaK several times, but I have to agree with Lemonhead. I can usually adjust to older graphics, but with BaK, I couldn't even tell what I was looking at sometimes.

I want re-envisioned concept of those games to match their predecessors. A proper Ultima 9 in style of d: os2, but with day/night cycles, schedules, and Ultima feeling would be cool. KQ8 bears little relation to preceding adventure games but I would keep the basic plot, reduce the map size to only what is needed, add puzzles, and remove action elements. Course that wouldn't sell so it is a pipe dream.

Actually I want also want a re-envisioning of Ultima 8 so that the platforming elements are gone, add the ability to form a party, rework the writing, magic system was coolish but needs tweaking. Combat mechanics would be like d: os2 but no armour system. It can be done, we have the technology!

- Morrowind, obviously
- +1 on Ultima Underworld
- System Shock (& 2) (but that's on the way)
- Thief: The Dark Project & The Metal Age (by taking RPG in the larger sense, or adding some character evolution)
- Paradroid

Man, Ultima Underworld was so damn good, both parts. I've still not played the new game, but those two from the past I've played quite a few times. What gems they are, I'd pony up cash immediately for updated versions of both.

Well I can at least guarantee a lot of people haven't heard of them.

Yeah, then the Steam release was some weird hybrid of CE content and MMXII UI and spell system redesign and … well, still just a dumpster fire overall!

Which is very unfortunate! Such great games. Some people know Terranigma, but Illusion of Gaia is very underrated.
