Would you purchase older classic games if they were redone with todays graphic standards? If so what classic game would you like to see updated? I would love to see the following games with new graphics:

Zac McKracken and the Alien Mindbenders
Maniac Mansion
Sanitarium
Day of the Tenacle
Gabriel Knight
Simon the Sorcerer
Discworld
Monkey Island

It would be great to see this happen. happydance

Hi Space Quest Fan, I would agree with your choices on GK 1, Discworld & Monkey Island! I would also like to see GK3, the rest of the Discworld & MI series, Dracula's Resurrection & The Last Sanctuary, Broken swword 1 & 2, Alone in the Dark - Jack is Back, Clocktower 1, Ark of Time, Versailles & any other classic recommended that I just don't try to get because I know it would be a nightmare to get them to play!!! smile

All the games that were made for WIN95, WIN98 remade to play on XP so I could do away with my 'extra' computers and downsize to just one laugh thumbsup

I'd nominate Dark Side of the Moon and Ripper, if only to do away with all those discs!

Chrissie, they already have a newer version of BS 1 & 2 for XP, I'm playing them now with no problems whatsoever. Also have GK3 that runs fine on XP under Win 98 compatability.

I'd like to see American McGees Alice redone for XP.

I played Alice on my XP computer and it ran flawlessly with no tweaks.

How about an updated version of Drowned God; it's long been one of my favorites. If this ever happens, please don't change the soundtrack.

Many that you've mentioned thus far, and also the Zork series and Are you afraid of the Dark.

It is actually being done with the first Tomb Raider and it will be called Tomb Raider Anniversary. It comes out this summer, I believe.

And while it may be viewed as sacrilege, Riven might benefit from additional 3D and pixels.

Oh WOW! What a good idea! Wouldn't that be fun to have all our favorite games updated to the new technology! My oldest favorite is Grail Quest, but it's for a Mac. Hey, re-making the PC oldies to work on the Mac would be nice too!
