Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Worthwhile (freeware) PC remakes of console classics?
I missed the classic games consoles. While others were playing on their Sega Mega Drives or SNES, I was enjoying my C-64, my Amiga and later my PC. I only got to know console games at first hand when I got a second-hand PS2.
Which also means that I missed out on the Super Mario Brothers (okay, I did play Great Giana Sisters), the early Final Fantasies, the Shinobis and Sonics. I know that all of those games are available (more or less (il-)legally) via emulators, but that's one time trap I've avoided thus far.
Do any of you know good, worthwhile PC remakes (or, ahem, "reimaginings" that avoid the copyright issue) of console classics, whether they're downloadable or playable online? Most of what I've found is Flash remakes that have dodgy aesthetics and even dodgier controls.
