    Games that could have been classics, or even just good at best.
    This topic interests me to no end, what are some you can think of?
    What I mean by reworked is something like Dinosaur Planet getting neutered to Star Fox Adventures.

    I've been a longtime lurker on this forum for awhile but figured id try it out.

    Before anyone comes in here with Battlefront 3 talk, let me tell you that you're wrong and should be ashamed of yourself for your terrible opinions.

    While we get the actual thing now, Final Fantasy Versus-XIII looked damn promising.
    I also think the oblivion psp version could have been great, the edler scrolls on the go could have really been something...

    Resident Evil 1.5

    Sure thing, 2 is one of the best PS1 games and one of the best of the franchise, but I always felt that compared to the original vision it was an downgrade.

    Half Life 2

    Another awesome game, but I also liked the original plot, maybe valve felt it was too dark compared to 1 and its expansions.

    Stalker: Shadow of Chernobyl

    Not talking about the original design, but the final one, it got a shitload of changes and then content began to be cut after THQ sent Dean Sharpe to push GSC to release fast as possible, when I first played I tought that I could drive the cars, it turns out that it was cut a year before the release.

    Sonic Xtreme. Watching the videos of the last builds Ofer did of the PC version makes me want to cry. It could have been so cool if they just gave it more time for those guys to get it together. The last builds with the expandable platforms were the start of a gorgeous looking game.

    Yeah; the next iteration on the Unreal (1 I believe?) engine would also be interesting. Whatever state they were in, couldn't be much worse than the final game (just started (and soon aborted) it a few days ago...) :b

    Oh and speaking of Quake-engine-based games: Prey.

    Yeah would love to see the DNF 1998 e3 version, though since its from 3d Reals, you can never know . It might look nice, but its probably all scripted.

    Dinosaur Planet is probably the best example of games that would have been great if they weren't reworked.
    Duke Nukem Forver, especially the 2001 version, would have been cool too.

    Star Fox Adventures wasn't a bad game it just isn't a Star Fox game and is only half of what Dinosaur Planet would have been, and yeah Duke Nukem Forever would have been badass, too bad about what we got.

    To me Adventures had way to many "oh crap, we forgot it was a StarFox game" moments.
    Like that Final Boss that litterally came out of nowhere! Adventures's not that bad, it had its moments but honestly, it would have worked better as a new IP

    If Dinosaur Planet did become its own IP i think Star Fox would be a better series for it.

    The fact that Krystal and odd out of place fantasy elements were literally shoved into a universe where they don't belong at all still leaves a bitter taste in my mouth, along with her independent and kind of just cool badass vibe about her gone.

    The original story of the game by its self was just so cool and interesting definitely an epic Rare had on their hands.

    I got DNF I think for £2.99. it's not bad for that... even as a $10 downloadable I think it'd be acceptable. It's bad, but not as bad as it's rep IMO. The humour sucked but the game itself worked.

    Actually my impression was exactly the other way around. Humor was okay, if a bit "90s-ish", but gameplay was pretty crap.

    So we can agree that it was worth me 3 quid then? :p Haha its deffo a cluster fuck of a title, I still think its worth checking out if you want something cheap and cheery to add to your shelf. Itll prob keep you entertained for an hour or two.
