I second that. Also, having a remake of System Shock 2 with a more recent engine would be nice. SS2 had awesome gameplay, a nice storyline, col sound, almost everything you might want - except for that it had really crappy graphics. But SS2 with something like Doom3's shadows and crispness - that sounds like a very wet dream...
Thinking of older games, I would like to see Ballblazer in new glory - not that better optics and sound could improve on the superb gameplay. Another game that really deserves a remake is California Games. Yeah, and Legacy of the Ancients. Oh, and Last Ninja. (But isn't there a remake project of the latter going on somewhere?)
Oh no! I missed the most obvious one, glad that other people corrected this terrible mistake: I never, ever understood why there wasn't a more recent version to the X-Wing / Tie-Fighter series. I mean, there's hardly any other game with such a background story (and such a sex appeal as to be able to destroy the Death Star - or even better: shoot Luke while he attempts to do so ).
Day of the Tentacle with hires graphics would also be nice.
