Remakes We Want On PS4 and Vita


Here is a question that is routinely asked by gamers, “what game/series would you like to see on the current consoles?”, and it’s the question we’re putting to you, the reader.

However it isn’t going to be as easy as just naming off a title, there are a few restrictions:

  1. Since this is a PlayStation centered site the question will be limited to PS4 or Vita.
  2. The game/series hasn’t been on a Sony platform before, however I will let you cheat. If a game/series is multi-console and has never been on a home console it can be on a handheld and vice versa.
  3. The game/series isn’t a Microsoft or Nintendo brand game. Just as I wouldn’t want to see a Killzone game on another system I don’t want to see Mario or Halo on a Sony system.

So given those restrictions what other games out there would you like to see?  

Here are my choices: Rogue Squadron or X-Wing/Tie Fighter, The Dig, AutoDuel or Mail Order Monsters on the PS4 and the Plastic Army Men games series on the Vita.

Rogue Squadronrogue-squadron-III
This would be a great game with the new technology in the PS4 compared to the Gamecube/N64 and PCs at the time. You could also avoid a retread of existing games by setting the missions based on the books instead of the movies. This would allow for new missions and could even be tied into the new movies. Or you could go the X-Wing/Tie Fighter route and have immense space battles with 12 vs 12 or larger multiplayer battles. It would also be fun to go back and be able to play the dark side. If they wanted to tie it into either the new cartoon or movies they could easily do that as well by just changing out the featured star ships.

The-Dig-coverThe Dig
This was a point and click adventure game by LucasArts that was ahead of its time. It could be a great addition the Tell Tales’ PSN games. It would be great to release the original then a much needed sequel.

AutoDuel was a great car wars game that helped start it all. Driving from town to town doing missions, upgrading your car, then going into duels in each town was such a blast back then and everything about it could easily fit into a PSN game.

Mail_Order_MonstersMail Order Monsters
This is a game that took dinosaurs and other monsters and equipped them with weapons and had you fight it out. I loved this game and spent hours at my friend’s house playing it. I can’t tell you the pain I had when my souped-up monster died and was gone from existence. There was no way to recover a killed dinosaur that I knew of, which made the game all the better.

Army MenArmy_Men_Sarge's_men
Army Men would be fun with a reinvention as a handheld game, that way you could play it in quick bursts and not have the gameplay get old or repetitive. Everybody still has a kid in them and games like this should make a comeback.


Anyway, those are my selections what are yours? Let us know in the comments section below.

    The Witcher 1 and 2 on PS4 would be nice since 3 is coming out. HD versions or not, I would love to play them on the big screen with my DS4.

    How about the Syphon Filter series? I remember playing a Syphon filter game on the PSP and liking it but felt hampered by the PSP not having a second analog stick.

    I would like to see the following.

    1. Bastion on PS3/4/Vita

    2. Tales of Vesperia and all other Tales games that meet the Criteria on Vita (since Vesperia never hit a U.S. release on PS3 I think it qualifies)

    3. Plants Versus Zombies 2 on VIta (only if it has a platinum… Not going to do it all over again for 5 bronze 2 silver and a gold or something)
    Sid Meier’s Games on PS4/Vita (touch might be what makes them work though Vita screen size might be too limiting)

    4. Skies of Arcadia Vita

    5. Maybe Powerstone for PS3/PS4/Vita? (Might not count since it was a PSP title)

    6. Bayonetta 2 on PS3/4 (don’t want to break my Vita playing that one)

    7. Megaman Legends Anthology PS3/4/V (I want ALL the rockman games though TBH)

    8. Beavis and Butthead on PS3/4/V done over again but with TellTale Games remaking it.

    9. Heroes of Might and Magic series…. At LEAST the one done by Capibara if not all of them. PS VIta and maybe 4.

    10. Shenmue PS3/4 (Vita probably wouldn’t fit the space requirements)

    11. Gauntlet games on Vita too much to ask for? Especially the ones on the N64 and later?

    12. Grandia 1 was on PS one but if it counts definitely, Grandia 2 was on PS2 but the port was terribly done and as much as I love the games some of the slow down in certain areas was unreasonable by even my patient standards, and 3 was on PS2 but I want it on the VIta.

    13. Ys compilation if not at least the ones that haven’t made it over.

    14. The one I possibly want the most is Soul Blazer Trilogy. Soul Blazer, Illusion of Gaia, Terranigma. Some of those never released in North America and they were Superfamicom games.

    I guess I’ll stop there. Even though Illusion of Gaia and the prequel and sequel I never had a chance to play are my most wanted ones, I had a hard time trying to figure out which of the games I want to play the most fit the criteria.

    Carmageddon and time splitters would be awesome. Or tie fighter vs xwing 🙂

  • John Davidson

    Gunpoint brought to Vita would be good, Euro Truck Simulator on PS4 would be cool 🙂

    With no explanation necessary, my answer is Onimusha.
