Tell Us Now: 15 Retro Games To Bring Back From The Grave

Video games were originally created by scientists in research labs in the 1950s. Since Pong, video games have come a long way. Many are easily forgotten, even though we’ve spent hours and even days of life interacting with them. However, some video games remain absolute classics despite the advancements in technology and gameplay. Who was alive for them, had access to play them, and doesn’t have a fondness for Tony Hawk’s Pro-Skater 3 or Goldeneye

We asked Cracked readers on Facebook, “What video game do you want to see remade?” Only a handful of people said something along the lines of “None! Be original!1!” because come on, nostalgia hits hard, and we’d love to play our favorite games from childhood with our new standards for video games. So, if there are any video game developers out there who just so happen to hold the rights to these games, the people demand these reboots.

Zombies Ate My Neighbors

... TELL US NOW. ZOMBIES ATE MY NEIGHBORS Bryce M. says, So many hours in that game. A remake with good graphics, some gore, and a ton of new weapons. CRACKED.COM

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

... TELL US NOW. THE LEGEND OF ZELDA: OCARINA OF TIME Adam N. says, Rather than just remaking the exact same game with updated graphics, I want it to be expanded on. More towns... more dungeons... more side-quests... more story... It's one of the best games of all time, but it could easily be built on and made even better. CRACKED.COM

Need for Speed Underground

... TELL US NOW. NEED FOR SPEED UNDERGROUND Style Poin 6 GOOD-DRI 5 6 4 7 3 2 90 Dana H. says, Everything about that game was awesome. Underground 2 should be as well. CRACKED.COM

Mutant League Football

... TELL US NOW. MUTANT LEAGUE FOOTBALL P 5 Sean G. wants to see a reboot of the 1993 Playstation game. In this post-apocalyptic world, football is a life or death game. CRACKED.COM


... TELL US NOW. LEMMINGS Karin J. nominted the addictive puzzle game, where you led the cute creatures to a safe exit or their certain death. CRACKED.COM

Sid Meier's Pirates! Gold

... TELL US NOW. SID MEIER'S PIRATES! GOLD skill at Navigation Spanish Timothy C. says, An amazing difficulty mechanism: instead of leveling up enemies, your pirate ages and slows down. Mind you this was for the Genesis, I can't imagine how great this could work next gen. CRACKED.COM

Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction

... TELL US NOW. INCREDIBLE HULK: ULTIMATE DESTRUCTION Joshua В. says, It was a great base for a game. Give it a modern look and flesh it out, and it could be amazing. If the original devs don't wanna do it, get Insomniac games to make it with the level of polish as PS4 Spider-Man. CRACKED.COM

Legacy of Kain

... TELL US NOW. LEGACY OF KAIN Rodcis H. wants to return to Nosgoth and see a reboot of Legacy of Kain series. CRACKED.COM

Jazz Jackrabbit

... TELL US NOW. JAZZ JACKRABBIT Adam N. tells US, It was a really fun 90s platform game for computers. But sadly, it seems to have faded into obscurity. Doing a remake and expansion of the original would be a blast. Especially if they kept the graphics in a retro style. CRACKED.COM

Goldeneye 007

... TELL US NOW. GOLDENEYE 007 Josh G. says simply, There is no other answer. CRACKED.COM

Eternal Darkness

... TELL US NOW. ETERNAL DARKNESS Christopher F. says, It was a Gamecube game where you'd be tempted to classify it as a survival horror game, but virtually none of the characters in it ACTUALLY survive. It had groundbreaking sanity effects that messed with you as the player (like it pretending to reformat your memory card) that made it legitimately scary. CRACKED.COM

Earthworm Jim

... TELL US NOW. EARTHWORM JIM Derek S. says, The original was fun, hilarious and had some surprisingly difficult levels. (I hated the underwater ones.) An updated version with better graphics? Yes, please! CRACKED.COM


... TELL US NOW. CROC Robert J. says, It was such a fun, pretty, and stupid game. In an era where Crash Bandicoot, Spyro and the like are all getting remakes why no love for Croc? Change out the fact you walk like a tank, and I'm sure it would kill it in sales! CRACKED.COM


... TELL US NOW. CREATURES Zeri В. says, You raise adorable little critters from eggs and let them roam around. You gotta protect them from dangers and teach them how to survive. And they have DNA that evolves and mutates, and you can breed them to be better or have new colors and features. It was such an awesome and unique game. CRACKED.COM

Armored Core

... TELL US NOW. ARMORED CORE N UNSION IAT de LAFER BLADE NO LIMIT MACHINE GUN ANH UNIT D Qag/ 250 ONE - Tyler S. says, I wanna see FromSoftware remake the third generation Armored Core games. Give 'em some sweet modern graphics and dual analog stick controls, but keep the weighty, realistic inertia that a 10 meter tall walking tank should have. CRACKED.COM
