Blood 2 was excellent.

You are probably first person I have seen saying Blood 2 is excellent. I don't know how good is it as regular FPS, but as sequel for Blood it sucks. It is nothing like first one, it changes everything. Weapons, settings, even Caleb swear and taunt lot less.

That could be, I never played the original. Same with NOLF. I just know I liked the sequels for what they were. I wanted to go through the original NOLF but I never would because it's just too dated. It's like trying to go back to dial-up internets after having cable. Once you get used to that much superior standard it's hard to go back. Wait long enough & it's almost not even really possible. That's why I'd like remakes of the first two Fallouts. I'm sure they're great games for their time but with too many new games coming out & too many existing ones still yet to be played, there's no way I'd bother to play something that dated. Especially when it comes to a story driven title, it needs to be up to par with here & now otherwise I can't be bothered. I'll be playing something that doesn't stop being fun like Carma or Trials or my cock 'n' balls etc.

Hard truck

Demo version of first Hard Truck was my first racing game alongside of Colin McRae Rally 1, so I have good memories of it, but I hope they never make reboot. Actually it was very crappy game. If you like second one more than first, then there is 18 wheels of steel, which is basically same series as HT, just different name.

I liked hard turck 2 the most. And there is a game called rig'n'roll from same developers it is like hard truck 3, but it not as good as the second one. I know 18 wheels fo steel. it's ok, but nowhere near as good as hard truck 2. I liked it becuase it had nice sim'ish physics and all kinds of fun stuff like secrets, bandits, flooded roads, etc.

Holy shit, Trent, I had to google what the hulk some of those games were before remembering everything and getting a huge shot of nostalgia to the brain.

System Shock could now actually get a sequel down the road, now Night Ride Studios own the rights. Theyve admitted they'd need the interest of a bigger publisher.

Bet that hurt!

I'm sure that if they make a success out of their system shock remake, they'll catch a lot of wind in their wake and sail straight towards a good publisher. It seems to be a relatively new studio at the moment, very unproven. It would most likely be a big gamble for a publisher to give these folks a big wad of money off the bat for a big sequel.

Not just the interest of a bigger publisher but also vastly expand their team and resources. They voiced their desire to make a sequel but said making brand new games "isn't their core business." Up until now their business has solely been hunting down and acquiring rights to games which were lost in copyright blackholes to be re-released on GOG and Steam. The System Shock remake is a big departure from their typical business and it's taken years to grow to a size capable of just that, so starting work on an actual fully fledged sequel which does the series justice is sadly many years away from being a viable option.

Yep ^^^ shoulda mentioned MCM too but I figged, meh I'll just have to get around to learning how to play Reflex someday. Only reason I don't play MCM 2 anymore (played it regularly for over 10 years after release) is because 3D acceleration wouldn't work on Win 7. Actually the game wouldn't even run due to a missing DX/D3D file or sump'm that was removed by M$ in 7. I gave it the file & it ran but no 3D acceleration. Figged it was just that time, as all good things inevitably have to come to an end, so I let it go. :(

Some really obscure stuff clutters up my gaming nostalgia:

Realms of the Haunting (Complete with slightly creaky FMVs of course)
Speedball 2 (An un-shit update please)
Interstate 76 (rusting gas-guzzlers and open-world missions)
Blade Runner (nice pseudo free roaming update to Westwood's epic)

Plenty more but they tend to be Amiga classics and the transition to newer systems might take away what I loved about them in the process.

Edit to confirm Mad Mike's eminent good taste:

The big one for me:

Interstate '76
