Remasters are a dime-a-dozen today, but what about the forgotten classics? In this exclusive Old School Gamer list, we share a few Shooters that deserve to be brought back from the dead.

Chronicles of Riddick: Escape From Butcher Bay: Starbreeze doesn’t get the credit that they deserve on games like Enclave, Riddick and The Darkness, but Riddick especially is a classic that deserves to be seen by as many people as possible.

South Park: It’s wonky, silly and over the top. The world needs more yellow snowballs.

Phoenix: The Atari 2600 classic would be a great pick up and play game on the Nintendo Switch, much like Horizon Shift ’81.

One: An early accomplishment in 3D gaming, in spite of its shallow story, it would be great to see this one with a fresh coat of paint.


Chiller:
A game like Blue Estate is a perfect example of how Chiller would work on the PlayStation 4, which leverages the motion sensor of the controller so it works like a light gun. Although Chiller is one of the most infamous games of all-time, it would be a blast to play with redone graphics on a new console.

The Darkness: The game based on the Top Cow comic was one of the best FPS experiences on the Xbox 360 and that’s no easy feat. With new visuals, it could connect to an entirely new audience.
