Classics We Want!
I say we, but I really I mean me, and when I say Classics, I actually mean, games I played when I was younger

Since the release of the 360 and the life-changing, amazing Live Arcade, we’ve seen some truly brilliant games come our way. Old games, new games, even the odd remake and now that LucasArts finally – finally – released Monkey Island, what other games from the long distant past would we like to see? Will it really open the floodgates for all sorts of old favourites to be released?
I don’t want to nitpick or start a flame war or anything, but PSN allows for old PSone games to be downloaded and played. Selected ones obviously, but that’s an awesome feature. Now that Microsoft has increased the file size for XBLA games, what old titles would perfectly suit the 360?
Here’s a list of five games I want. It’s my opinion and personal preference, so let me know what your top five would be…
X-Wing vs TIE Fighter
The multiplayer-focused Star Wars flight sim would be perfect for reliving those epic space battles. No more of this Republic Heroes rubbish.
There may be a slight LucasArts slant to this list, but it did start the ball rolling and this point-and-click adventure is one of its finest.
Dark Forces & Dark Forces 2
I can’t even help myself; LucasArts ruled my youth. These have just been released on Steam and are ripe for XBLA conversion. I want to play as Kyle Katarn again!
Forget the rubbish sequel; this Resident Evil-with-dinos was an excellent shooter-cum-puzzler. This would look amazing all HD’d up.
Oddworld: Abe’s Odyssey
This old PSone game will probably never make it, but with its special brand of humour and platforming, I’d love to have another chance to play it.
