Street legal was stated to return this year actually, but both indiegogo and kickstarter campaigns for it failed pretty hard, I wonder if its ever going to be made.

It doesn't need a HD reboot as I've played the gog version in the last couple of years but I always thought Kingpin doesn't ever seem to get the praise it deserves. Always dwarfed by same era FPS such as half life and Deus EX.

Screamer 2 was my first PC racing experience. So a screamer of some sort might be welcome? As Flykas mentioned.

Also in the shadow of same era fighters, Primal Rage was underrated, spent a lot of time on that with my mates when I was a young'un.

The commandos series comes to mind, especially a game that takes commandos 2 and improves upon it, that I'd love to see.

Magic Carpet (I know about Arcane Worlds but it's in such an early stage and I want a AAA title)
Jet Set Radio Future

...I'm tired, I'll probably think of some more later.

Bet that hurt!

Yeah the 'hallmark' of that one was all the swearing. Not really much to praise I'm afraid. It takes a bit more when you're going up against stuff like HL & DE. Entertaining game though. I think I played through it 2X. I was blown away when I heard Ving Rhames doin' his Pulp Fiction routine. Love Ving.

For me, it's all Powerslide. If I could have a modern redo of one game besides Carma it'd for sure be Powerslide, BUT lately I've also been thinking that it'd be great if Bethesda redid Fallout & Fallout 2.

most of these games on are gog.com

I like Epitaph's list, i have the original and still broke version of ignition on pc, it still works a jem but you get to like level 5 or something and you playing the game and it just breaks. YAY for game

outlaws was a good game as well, 2 cd's and a pack full of hurt in caves and the outback.

I got a list on GOG.com about all the games i still have originally and gog.com still hasnt got on there list, Like Track attack. and Truckz, and lego racers, animal (3d shooter style), many more games, from the past that still do not exist on gog but there getting there slowly

hmm, you have a point, although for me it was the damage textures and dismemberment as well as being able to contextually respond to people in game, and also recruit gang members. It was all new to me at the time and relatively new the genre. The language and brutality really made it feel mature in an 'adult' way to me though, which was exciting as a spotty little teenager. The were quite a few PC FPS games that were light years ahead of console counterparts. Everyone went ape shit for Goldeneye (which I spent a lot of time playing also) but there were other classics like SiN, Blood / Blood 2, soldier of fortune, half life, Kingpin, Deus Ex, Shadow Warrior, Redneck Rampage. So on so forth.
