For me Day of the Tentacle, I think it is my favorite adventure game ever. With new graphics and sound I would play it again!

None of them really need it but I voted Zak McKracken. Only because it's a great game but suffers from poor interface and graphics, and I never actually finished it for those reasons. Maniac Mansion would be cool as well.

I fear if they did Day of the Tentacle they would ruin the beautiful graphics and characters, which are better represented by a few pixels than high resolution graphics. I feel your mind does most of the work in figuring out what they look like, and when they did Guybrush it wasn't how I imagined him in the original.

I think Grim Fandango is good enough for a remake. It would be nicely played on PlayStation 3.

All they need to do to Grim Fandango is make it playable without a patch. And publicize it. Give it some attention, for crying out loud.

Change the controls and you change an essential part of the game. Manny is the hotspot indicator in most places and you're not even going to notice some of them if you double click to zip from one place to another using a mouse. It was an interesting experiment on Schaeffer's part and I say leave it alone.

I voted for Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade because it's one of the games I haven't played, and a new edition would hook me right in for sure.

I also voted for Indie and the Last Crusade, but because it's the only game from the list I didn't like the graphic style of.

The Dig is the only Lucas Arts game I liked so my vote goes to it. I know there are a lot of Lucas Arts lovers but quite frankly I didn't get anything from any of their games and didn't finish any of them except for The Dig

I voted for Fate of Atlantis only because both times I played it (about 10 years apart) I ran into a game breaker/dead end where I forgot to do something and wasn't able to go back or progress.

Also, one of the ways to revive more interest in the genre would be again to use world famous franchises like Indiana Jones.

Speaking of which, is that Star Wars AG fan project still in development?

I voted for "Grim Fandango", because I just couldn't like the keyboard controls, and if they remade it, it would probably be slightly cheaper and I would feel compelled to play this classic that I never got through.

I am not very fond of special editions, even if I have played some, but I can't help it, the original is always better for me.......but ,you can have some fun outta them, so...

I'll say Indy and the fate of Atlantis!

Day of the Tentacle, mainly for the fact that I haven't played it in years and would love to go through it again.

I chose Grim Fandango mostly because it's hard for me to go back and play older 3D games. I'd like to see it redone. But in all honesty I'd be happy with any of them.

Don't want to derail the thread, but which dead ends are you talking about? I played the game countless times and never encountered one, so I'm curious.

Also voted for Grim Fandango. Hope they'd fix the control scheme in a remake...

My memory is a bit poor but I think it is the stones you have to collect - I didn't get one of them and reached a stage where I couldn't go back and get them. I missed something in the Mayan Temple, I think you had to follow the man or something but I didn't realize, left, and reached a stage where I couldn't get back*.

* May not be entirely accurate but definitely a dead-end where I couldn't get the stone, even following the walkthrough.

Like ozzie I replayed the game countless times and are almost 100% sure I forgot to take the stones from all possible places where you use them in the game. And they were always retrievable, even though there was often a great number of backtracking involved - especially in Atlantis.

Oh, and if you mean that guy in Tikal (the Mayan temple), he was supposed to get away with the stone - you don't need it at this point.

That said it's entirely possible that there's some rare, unusual dead end in the game that was missed in play-testing during production and got into the final version. But it definitely isn't there by design and most people didn't stumble upon it at all, so you might have had some really rotten luck.

There are several Star Wars AG fan projects in the making like Han Solo Adventures, Shadows of the Empire. The only fan game of this sort finished so far is actually more of an RPG than an adventure game, but it was made with Adventure Game Studio. It's called Shai-La of the Sith:

Fate of Atlantis is AMAZING! This game needs to be remade so new age gamers can play an Indy game that doesn't suck

I think Maniac Mansion should get the treatment, this has been hinted for quite a while as Ron Gilbert has said he like to see it, Craig Derrick wants to do it, various LucasArts staff want to do it and since theres rumours of some big news been unveiled in May both Star Wars and non Star Wars related I think we will see a MM Special Edition at E3 this year.

Loom or Maniac Mansion, I sided with Loom
many of the games frankly don't need much of an update. just a slight polish for higher resolutions and games like Day of the Tentacle and Sam & Max would be perfect. older games like Loom, MM, Zak, etc would benefit more from a complete graphical and UI overhaul, just as long as they stayed true to the originals (compare the Monkey Island remakes to the so-so Broken Sword Directors Cut)
