DuckTales Remastered

Cartoons and video games have gone hand-in-hand since the video game console took off in the 1980’s. Hundreds of games have been released since then and some of them have been really, really good, and many really, really bad. With all that time gone by and with so many games, there are quite a few that have stood the test of time. And with the release of new consoles this year by the big three – Nintendo, PlayStation and Microsoft – it’s time to take a look at a few games and cartoon franchises that we haven’t heard from in a long time that we would like to see remade.

Anything From DC Comics That Doesn’t Include Batman

[adsense250itp]Batman games always seem to do well and doesn’t look to slow down any time soon, but that’s been pretty much it for DC. However, Injustice: Gods Among Us was just released and looks to be a pretty nice game while Young Justice: Legacy is due out in September. How these two will go over with gamers is anyone’s guess. The DC Comics Universe just can’t seem to get it right when it comes to games based off some of its greatest individual characters not named Batman. Even Superman can’t get a decent game and he’s the Man of Steel from crying out loud! And does anyone remember the Green Lantern or Aquaman games? We didn’t think so.

Looney Tunes

Another legendary franchise that is as old as television. The characters are still classic and a good game could introduce them to a whole new generation of kids. There is the recent “The Looney Tunes Show” on Cartoon Network that is pretty funny. That should be enough to create a good video game.

Speed Racer

This iconic 1960’s television series was turned into a so-so live action movie and a very average video game in 2008. How can you screw this one up? Great hero, great villains, great races and of course – the great car with tons of gadgets! Give this game a facelift and stick to the original storyline and kick in some great gameplay and viola! Instant classic!

The Simpsons

The last game we saw from Matt Groening’s family in a console was the really awful “The Simpsons Game” from 2007. This show has been on for over 20 years and has released almost as many console games. The least creators can do is release one that can do this iconic animated family justice.

Any Older Disney Title

Disney has made tons of video games. If there’s a Disney animated movie coming out then rest assured that a video game will be right next to it. Just about all of its most legendary characters and franchises have their own games. Picking one to be revived certainly isn’t very easy. After careful consideration, one game that stands out as a classic and we think it’s time for a good old fashion update is DuckTales, which has been rated as one of the best games ever from the mouse factory when it made its debut on the original Nintendo Entertainment System in 1988. It went on to spin off DuckTakes 2 and DuckTales: The Quest for Gold, but that was way back in 1993 for the TV series that ran from 1987-90. And fans should be rejoicing at the recent announcement of DuckTales Remastered in high definition by Disney Interactive and Capcom. Still, there are plenty of other old classics that could use a fresh coat of paint. What about Darkwing Duck, Chip ‘n’ Dale, TaleSpin or just about any other good Saturday morning cartoon from decades past?
