PAX East 2023 showed us that there’s a need for retro sports and beat-em-ups, but what other games and genres deserve a fresh new coat of paint? Old School Gamer shares their thoughts on what titles would find a new audience with a modern remake.
Adventure: The Atari 2600 classic would make for a great new modern adventure. Playing off the block visuals, new developers could totally make something new and fun.
Mangia: This all you can eat goes for a pretty penny on the Atari 2600, but it would be a blast to play today with new visuals.
Montezuma’s Revenge: Easily one of the 2600’s best platforms, this would be a blast today.
PowerDrive Rally: The best racer on the Atari Jaguar, the gaming industry needs more overhead, couch-co-op fun.
Dandy: The main influence for the arcade classic Gauntlet, this Atari 800 classic deserves a new version.
