I was reminiscing about all my favorite games(thanks to the world of emulators I have played nearly every game ever created prior to ps2 lol) and was wondering what sort of games you guys would wish to see remade.
As for me, comes a game as timeless as ff7 itself, albeit not nearly as popular.
The game in question is River City Ransom for NES. The game had Double Dragon DESTROYED in the amount of side-scrolling fighting available, You could throw weapons, use weapons, learn new moves, throw your PARTNER, etc etc etc.
It had rpg elements in the form of a large for its time stats system, which you could upgrade at various shops with money collected. You were even able to learn completely new abilities such as acrobatic flips, triple punches, triple kicks, etc.
All in all, even considering the very short story and playthrough, this game still offers me much enjoyment, especially when playing multiplayer.
Now I am aware that there was a japanese sequel that was named something slightly different, but they removed most of the RPG mechanics and moved more to a beat-em up. In my opinion, the sequel was a severe downgrade from the original.
If this game was recreated even with the original 8-bit graphics, and the story and game length was extended...I believe it would land on my list of top 10 games ever.
If you havent played it, get it and give it a shot.
