What retro game would you love to see redone?

The vast majority of games I loved have already been redone. Some less than successfully (see Burger Time). Still, good version of Q*Bert would rule.

I doubt he has the power anymore, but I am sure he'll get a kick out of it.

That said, please tell him I used to play that game every single night after work with my manager for three or four hours. I got so good at it, it would only cost me a quarter or two. Now my question, and mauve he can help my memory here, but I SWEAR I flipped that game and it kept going but the difficulty went back to level one. Can you ask him if that's possible, and if so how many levels was it? I only did it once, I was in the zone, and I'm hoping someone can tell me I'm not just remembering it wrong.
I personally would like to see final fantast VII redone with today's technology

Kaens and Jeepers (ha!), I talked to him yesterday, and I even showed him this thread on my phone. He was "grateful his legacy still lives on" and then we talked church stuff. He's a hoot, really.

Now, with everyone clamoring for it though, it seems like it would be worth the cash grab. They'd get their money back!
You do know that people still make Atari games, they are nit mass produced like the new gens and they are not licensed in anyway. I think they are like custom fan stuff mostly. I've actually seen Halo for the 2600...
I'd love to see a Battletoads remake.. Either HD the old one, or make a new one. We just need the toads back in gaming!

If we could get a large enough group then maybe someone will listen but most companies these days don't really want to know unless it makes them a lot of money.
