Games that need an HD remake
Seeing the news about MDK2, what other games would you really like to see an HD remake of?
I'd vote for Heretic 2.
I'm also hoping the Open Outcast project can actually finish (Black Mesa's probably dead, right?)

I'd say NOLF (lesser extent NOLF2). Brilliant titles, but sadly the ol' LithTech engine just ain't what she used to be. However, I always worry with HD releases that part of the magic of the original gets lost along the way. It's like when they released Final Fantasy VI for the umpteenth time, they "fixed" the Vanish/Doom exploit from when it was called FF3 on my SNES.

In the same vein as Heretic 2, I'd love to see a HD remake of Hexen. PART ONE. Part two never existed.
Ooooh, and "Blood" + "Blood 2". Such brilliant games.

I say this every time this comes up, but Cannon Fodder.
Also: Deus Ex, Thief, UFO: Enemy Unknown.

Dare I suggest Dues Ex: Invisible War aswell? Would be good to have the areas joined together without any loading.

Outcast and the original Unreal are my picks. The Open Outcast project isn't actually a remake of the first game, it's a fan-made sequel, so a HD version of the original would still be needed/desired.
Regarding Heretic 2, even if they didn't HD it up I'd love for it to actually get a digital release in the first place.Give me steam and how you feel to make it real.

The Original Prince Of Persia I think could do with a nice HD remake, maybe even HD remake the really nice SNES version.

Freelancer. Other than that I would say Simcity 4 and the Homeworld series.

It's still in the early stages, but that's the most promising we've seen so far.
(And I doubt that LucasArts will pay to make an HD version of this title which performed quite poorly, commercially. Unfortunately :/)
But I agree, it would be really great to have a HD remake of this game.

I'd pay good money for a loose Deus Ex remake using the Human Revolution tech, and even more if they'd butcher Invisible War into something worthy one day in the future.
Apart from that, "Terra Nova: Strike Force Centauri" would tickle me pink, and the PC Battlezone remake would be "Teh Awesum". (A remake of a remake?)
Killing Cloud. Terminator: Future Shock. Hired Guns. Midwinter. and maybe, just maybe, a remake of Quarantine.

Jurassic Park: Operation Genesis. HD dinosaurs!
What about improved musical arrangements? Plenty of games (and not just really old titles, either) have great music that would be even better if fully orchestrated. Some examples: Legend of Mana, Master of Orion 2, Rise of Nations, Disciples: Sacred Lands, Sid Meier's Pirates!

I would also like to see a Grim Fandango remake, and in either a cel-shaded or Borderlands sketchy kind of art style. Also, if Windows 8 is going touch-screen oriented and there are so many touch screen PCs available cheaply nowadays, point 'n click adventures could do well with such an interface.

Beyond Good & Evil (I think it could do with a once over, personally, such as with animations),
The Longest Journey,
Grim Fandango (Just so I can play it)
