    Twisted Metal: Black

    At this year’s E3, David Jaffe revealed the next entry in the Twisted Metal series. The game is currently slated for a release sometime in Sweet Tooth as he appears in Twisted: Metal Black. 2011. How awesome would it be if, between now and the game’s release, gamers got a chance to play an enhanced version of the much lauded Twisted Metal: Black? Not only would this give longtime fans a chance to play one of the best games in the series with all-new visuals and maybe some added content, but it would also allow newcomers to get into the series.

    Indigo Prophecy

    Created by the same team behind the recently released Heavy Rain, Indigo Prophecy didn’t gain as much exposure as other more Indigo Prophecy popular titles, thus leading to its status as a cult classic. The fan base for the game is there, however, and an HD release would likely result in many a fan rejoicing.

    Kingdom Hearts

    Lauded for its spectacular action RPG gameplay, well-written story, and flawless combination of Disney and Square Enix characters, Kingdom Hearts Kingdom Hearts is definitely a game worthy of receiving a graphical overhaul. Some Trophies and other bonus material would be nice as well. In any case, Kingdom Hearts is quickly becoming a timeless series, and seeing the magical worlds and characters of the series in HD would certainly be worth experiencing.

    Max Payne

    Easily one of the greatest pure action games ever created, Max Payne delivered enormous amounts of shooting action, a cool gameplay Max Payne feature known as Bullet Time, and one of the most depressing main characters in gaming. With the release of Max Payne 3 delayed multiple times, now would be a good time to give the first—and maybe even second—game the HD treatment.

    The Warriors

    In 2005, The Warriors seemingly put 3D beat ‘em ups back on the map by delivering an exciting brawler that retained everything great about The Warriors the genre and added to it with engaging side quests and interesting mechanics. Unlike many movie-to-video game adaptations, The Warriors actually did the 1979 cult film justice and provided a gaming experience that could be enjoyed by gamers familiar with the movie and those who had never heard of it. Given the care that goes into making HD versions of great games, it would be nice if the Warriors came out to play one more time.
