I'd love to see Tex Murphy updated, especially the first two, Mean Streets and Martian Memorandum. The latter ones could have 3d graphics instead of FMV. How about Cruise for a Corpse too with better graphics and spoken dialogue.

Im glad you asked this,because I have often thought it would be really cool to see "Azraels Tear" with updated graphics! An updated "Secret of the Luxor" would be cool also!

Hi smile

The Indiana Jones "adventure" games - and all the Tex Murphy ones too - might be good laugh

Bit I do think there is a risk of losing some of the original "panache" of some the oldies by re-vamping the graphics eek

I still play lots of the classic oldies in their original ancient graphic state and they have a magnetism for me that I fear could be lost were they to be too meddled with lol

Cheers.

Tex Murphy Overseer is basically a remake of Mean Streets...

There is a 1-Disc DVD version of Dark Side of the Moon floating around somewhere...

Grail Quest was also available on the PC, BTW.

I'd have to go with any Zork game. I still have a couple of those.

Oh Haze, I still have Drowned God. I hate to part with these old games. I'd love to replay them all but some of them don't seem to work on todays upgraded computers.

I would play any of the old games if they were updated. I love the old games they had something that the new games seem to lack, but I can't put my finger on it.

Hi Starlight Moon; I know the feeling. I've kept a tight grasp on both Drowned God and Obsidian and they have both run, with no problem, on my Windows XP. However, unlike BrownEyedTiger, I can't make ALICE run on it. Ah well, like it or not we'll all eventually have to see what Vista will bring to the table.

Oh, Grim Fandango! I think it is now on the outside edge of being able to be played on these computers today. I so loved that game and would have loved a sequel.... Also pretty much any adventure game that currently won't run or is really hard to run on today's computers.

Definitely the Monkey Island series would be in my list, and also Grim Fangango.

Some of these mentioned I would not want them ungraded to todays graphics standard. They were great the way they were.
And I could not imagine the Monkey Islands and especially Sanitarium being remade. The graphics were just fine.
I would like re-releases of these older games as they are to work on XP and the new Vista. Now that would be cool.
Wasn't the re-release of Sanitarium playable on XP?

That's what they said - however I had many issues with it under XP.

My thoughts exactly JB, as I tried to say in MY post on this thread, but you put it so much more succinctly than I did.
Indeed, I feel some of the charm of the old games IS those old graphics !! thumbsup

Cheers.

I remember the first game I played was Kings Quest on an RGB monitor. The grahpics were so bad that sometimes you couldn't even figure out what you were supposed to be looking at but it was the game that got me hooked on adventure gaming. thumbsup
