The list author says: "This is my list of games that need to be remade."
X-COM: UFO Defense - PlayStation
1.  X-COM: UFO Defense - PlayStation by BPS
The list author says:
  "If you haven't played Xcom, good luck trying to find a copy that will work on a modern computer. Xcom was single handily the greatest strategy game ever created, exceeding even Civilization 2."
Used & New from: $24.18

Master of Magic
2.  Master of Magic by Microprose
The list author says:
  "Master of Magic was Civilization 2 years before civilization 2 existed. Instead of technology, you researched magic. You cast spells and create powerful world effects, creature effects, and city effects. This was truly a hidden Gem."
$299.95   Used & New from: $17.50
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (9 customer reviews)

Final Fantasy VII
3.  Final Fantasy VII by SquareSoft
The list author says:
  "A Remake list couldn't be complete without one of the greatest games every made, Final Fantasy 7. We all know it will eventually get remade whenever Squaresoft finds themselves in a lull period, but I hope it's soon."
$179.90   Used & New from: $17.75
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1,468 customer reviews) | 25 customer discussions

Twisted Metal
4.  Twisted Metal by Sony
The list author says:
  "I am not talking about all the various part 2's, 3's, 4's, and Blacks, I am talking about going back to their routes. This generation of gaming hasn't seen a particularly good car on car violence game. Apparently, Twisted Metal is coming to PS3, so wheeee!"
$95.99   Used & New from: $3.25
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (48 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

SimAnt - PC/Mac
5.  SimAnt - PC/Mac by Electronic Arts
The list author says:
  "Before The Sims took over the whole sim universe, we had the likes of simcity, simtower, and simants. Of them, simants ran supreme. Be an ant, take over the yard, these were your goals. I miss being an ant. Yes, your queen wears army boots indeed."
$28.50   Used & New from: $1.99
4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (30 customer reviews)

SimTower - PC/Mac
6.  SimTower - PC/Mac by Electronic Arts
The list author says:
  "What can I say, I loved my sim games. SimTower allowed you to build escalators, elevators, lobbies, and a million other things as you grew to a 100 stories tall. Great game."
$22.00   Used & New from: $1.76
3.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (45 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Ultima Collection - PC
7.  Ultima Collection - PC by Electronic Arts
The list author says:
  "A stranger from current times gets sucked through a vortex to ancient midevil times. Sounds awesome! Enough of this FPS RPG, I want my sprite back, in updated format, with the go anywhere, do anything mentality."
$149.99   Used & New from: $20.53
3.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (35 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas - PlayStation 2
8.  Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas - PlayStation 2 by Rockstar Games
The list author says:
  "Don't get too defensive, San Andreas was the greatest game. Had they just added a new storyline, updated the graphics, GTA 4 would have been perfect. They didn't, and I attest to this day that they should reconcile their mistake."
$19.83   Used & New from: $2.69
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (989 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Diablo - PC
9.  Diablo - PC by Blizzard Entertainment
The list author says:
  "Yes, we are waiting on Diablo 3... still waiting."
$35.00   Used & New from: $7.12
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (158 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Sid Meier's Pirates! - PC
10.  Sid Meier's Pirates! - PC by 2K
The list author says:
  "This game is in fact a remake of an even earlier game, but keeping your crew's moral constantly satisfied and the ticking clock that was your old age hampered my enjoyment. It needs to be remade. Having my crew mutiny every time I didn't find a secret treasure ever 30 minutes was annoying. If they were paid a monthly salary or something, that would be an acceptable substitute."
$18.99   Used & New from: $2.77
