Black. It has better physics and destruction than most modern games. It looks surprisingly good too despite the low resolution.

Ace Combat for Playstation. Not happen for the decision to make this franchise console exclusive, and 4, 5 and Zero are simply Playstation 2 exclusive. We all see how great it would be to have online gameplay for this franchise, yet Playstation 2 is not known for performing great on online functionality - which may be owing to other factors than PS2 hardware itself, as Sony didnt really appreciate the potential of online gaming before the entrance of Xbox. Only Zero has split screen competitive multiplayer.

Kingdoms under Fires for Xbox. They should fix the control mechanism and bring it to PC.

Killzone for Playstation. Of course that won't happen since it's suppose to be Halo-killer. But it is a great shooter outstanding by itself, much better than those like COD.

Sakura War V: So Long, My Love for Playstation. err...... okay I admit I love ACG games. But hey, Sakura Wars is a really great franchise and dont let any of its installment miss PC porting.

Unreal Championship 2 for Xbox. For mysterious reasons this highly praised game didn't sell well. Some commented that it was overshadowed by other shooters with much simpler control mechanics, like Halo (that why I hate Halo SO MUCH). Anyway, Midway sucked in marketing so its demise isn't really a surprise, though it's a great loss to the industry with its great games. But, I know it sounds odd, but it plays really well with joypad, so well that I dont think it works that well on mouse+keyboard.

Far Cry Instinct for Xbox. Linearity is not necessarily a bad element for shooter, you know. It depends on how it is implemented. Plus, Fera is a great add-on for Far Cry game.

Metal Gear Solid 3 for Playstation. Especially the online game, I want it to be alive again.

Metal Wolf Chaos for Xbox. Richardddddddddddddddddddddddd~

Final Fantasy 10 and 12 for Playstation. FF12 is often negatively reviewed by the community, but to me, its real time gameplay is very an innovation, and it also brought the illusion of a borderless world.

No love for TimeSplitters? Pretty solid considering it's a console game. Also, how come Goblin Commander didn't get PC port when it's an RTS?

I'd take a FFXII reboot, please. And revert the story back to what it should have been and give me Airship battles. Kato did some pretty interesting stuff for the story and there should be three protags. Sadly, Squeenix wanted the fangirl audience so, what we got was Vaan.

Hey, airship battles! When I watched the trailers, I thought those would be gameplay. Trailers, even cinematic, should be taken as hints for gameplay. I felt missing something and the game is not complete without airship battle, because of the trailers.

And I know Vaan is not the most favorite character you will have in the game, but come to think of it, he is such a common folk you will come across in modern society, and even you and me can be a Vaan. He just happened to take the chance presented to him to be a great hero. Therefore you see all the weaknesses of a weak boy who dreams big. I even felt I saw my mirror image.

BTW can anyone recommend any games from GameCube? It seems GameCube is from another universe and no gamer in this world has any experience with me. It's not a popular platform even in East Asia.

Cave: Espgaluda, Ketsui, Mushihimesama and everything else they have ever published.
Clover: God Hand, Okami.
Capcom: Resident Evil 4. I mean a remake, with good quality control, and graphics redone from the ground up, not the crap that was the original port and actually managed to have worse textures than some console versions.
Platinum: Bayonetta, Vanquish.
Sega: Virtua Fighter 4 Evolution, Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown.
Team Ninja: Ninja Gaiden games.
From Software: Demon's Souls.
Housemarque: Super Stardust HD.

I own many of these games already - not all - but would gladly buy or re-buy them on PC for additional quality, to be able to ditch my old consoles and to not have to buy new consoles.

I would love to see Marvel Ultimate Alliance 1+2 for PC.

I love the games in co-op - but they feel so very, very clumsy on the console.


Also, Bayonetta would be awesome.

Persona 4. That is all.

Though I do really like playing it on my couch.

Would agree with VF coming to PC, I think it's the one fighting game series that could really make the genre take off on the platform.

First one I know it is for pc (I played it) the second one I'm quite sure it had a pc version but haven't played it so I can't confirm with 100% certainty.

In the same vein I'd love to see X-Men Legends 1 on the PC. XML2 was fantastic.

EDIT: After a quick search seems that MUA2 wasn't released on PC.

Really? That's actually good news, but I've never found or saw the PC version anywhere, so I (foolishly, maybe) assumed it didn't exist. :D

Mainly all the Team Ico ones:

Plus all the zelda and metroid(fps) games.

Physical copies are almost impossible to get nowadays. I wish I could get a lot of Activision's old games in a download service. One can only hope gog will get to it sometime in the future.

War of The Monsters because c'mon devs, would you at least give the PC a chance for this awesomeness?

Who doesn't wan't to be a 50-foot Gorilla cyborg/Mantis mutant fighting Maginzer Z clones or giant, reverse-engineered death bots from a cheesy 50s sci-fi movie? And you got a fucking Godzilla clone and electrical cyclops in there too!

Speaking of Capcom, they might as well bring Viewtiful Joe and Marvel vs Capcom while they're at it.

There is a PC version of the new game coming. But the developers make Valve and Blizzard seem positively frantic.

Skies of Arcadia if you want Airship battles.

To me, console games are developed with a controller input, UI based on controller and TVs, and limitations of power from the console. I end up getting most consoles when I can so eventually I have access to most games I would want. I like my keyboard/mouse setup for PC and have not had a controller for my PC since the 90s (other than joystick, gotta be able to pivot in my Mech.) Although I do enjoy the compatibility that comes to PC, the ability to configure and mod, and longer lasting multiplayer (RIP Xbox 1 LIVE).

Xbox 1: Crimson Skies, Phantom Dust (so that I could still play them online)
Dreamcast: Alien Front Online, PSO 1, Power Stone 2
PS3: Demon's Souls, that could have player run servers for the online component. MAG, battlefield 3 alternative with different twists on conquest mode. (Can still play it, but might get a larger audience on PC)
DS: Advance Wars. Email type mode, much like M.A.N 2 has. Same for any turn-based strategy really.

Eternal Darkness, first Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles, Zelda Wind Waker, Lost Kingdoms 1 & 2, Mario Kart Double Dash, Metroid Prime 1&2 (tho released on Wii), P.N. 03, Pikmin 1&2, Skies of Arcadia: Legends, Rogue Squadron 2&3, Tale of Symphonia (later on PS2), Super Monkey Ball 1&2, Wario Ware (Why isn't game on Facebook???, Nintendo slacking), Baten Kaitos 1&2, Cubivore (now this needs to be ported to Minecraft), Paper Mario, Zelda 4 Swords, Geist, Fire Emblem, Odama, Chibi-Robo.

Now, if they deserve a PC port, up to you.

There actually was a PC version of a King's Field game, kind of. It was a sandbox kit with a recreation of the first game on it.


PSO 1

PSO: Blue Burst does have a PC version if that counts

Moraven

Hmm yah, has Episode 1 and 2. Was only aware of the Universe.

And hopefully PSO 10th anniversary comes to PC this year or next and is good.

That wouldn't be PSO 2 by any chance? Because that's coming to PC and is F2P.

Oh really? I used to play a bit of PSO: Blue Burst when it came out on PC.

It was really enjoyable for two months, then I saw all five dungeons to death.

The Endless Ocean games from the Wii. A bloody diving game and it's not on the PC? Plus, if it was on the PC it wouldn't be so damned hard to find a copy of the second one and I could enjoy better resolutions and my arm wouldn't go to sleep holding up the controller.

I've also been wanting to give Fragile Dreams a try so a PC version would make me happy.

Mercenaries. I would port it myself if I could get permission and the source code and build assets. RIP Pandemic.

I truly can't think of any. Most of the Gamecube's first-party titles are absolute classics and have aged extremely well, but we'll never see a Nintendo game on PC.

Besides the obvious ones like Ico and SotC I can't think of any particularly memorable PS2 games. I mostly played JRPGs at the time and I just don't ever see myself going back to them.

Megaman X8 maybe? Did that get a PC release?

Voon
20-04-2012, 03:33 AM
+1 for Mercenaries. I've been playing that shit for so long I've pretty much ignored everything else on that console. Sad that I don't have a PS2 now and the game's all scratched up. Bloody awesome game, that was.

ICO and SotC are masterpieces, and any platform would benefit by having those two games in it's library. Same goes for MGS3: Snake Eater.

Some other great titles: Metroid Prime, Ninja Gaiden Black, The Warriors, TLoZ: Wind Waker, Okami, Eternal Darkness, etc.

A couple of current gen titles spring to mind.

Battlefield Bad Company. Single player wise, I still think this was a much better game than the second one, and even BF3 quite honestly, and yet no PC release. It managed to capture some of the Battlefield experience in a single player setting. Big open maps with a feeling of freedom even if sometimes you really only had one way to go. Lots of weapons and vehicles to utilise and lots of buildings to destroy. I thought the SP campaign in the second one was very run of the mill and quite stymied by comparison. Utterly linear, no vehicles, no freedom, no where near as much destruction, just another military FPS. I was not impressed, it was a step backwards. The BF3 campaign was similarly dissapointing.

Red Dead Redemption. Excellent western game in the GTA mould. One of my favourite game "endings" ever, really superb. Why no PC release? I don't think there's ever been an explanation for it has there? GTA4 was ported, LA Noire was ported, why not Red Dead?

Hmm, MGS3 is one, Wipeout another (I'm really itching to build a proper Wipeout cockpit but it seems financially irresponsible to spend all that money just to play one game)... I suppose GT3 and/or 4 but as GT5 is the same but shinier I would've said that if this had been a more open topic.

I'm struggling to think of many more, I really am. Tekken 3 (mainly because I don't want to buy the Tekken film just to get an HD remake of it), Hitman already exists on PC... OH! Contracts doesn't, Hitman Contracts. And... Hmm. Ace Combat 3 was pretty good, and I can't remember if Vigilante 8 was PS or PS2, but that was quite fun as well. Fuel was as close as we got to Smuggler's Run and was frankly not very good (neither was Smuggler's Run, mind), and oh! Yes! The Getaway and The Getaway: Black Monday. They were awesome games and I shed a rapid succession of single tears when I heard they'd cancelled the PS3 sequel.

Agree whole-heartedly. Bad Company 1 is a much better single-player game. The writing is pretty brilliant too. Some of the trailers are awesome:
