Descent series incl. Freespace
Freelancer
Starflight
Bladerunner
Mechwarrior series
Independence War series

Mechwarrior is being remade. And it's going to be ing awsome.

Freespace would be excellent. We wants to use the capital ships as well! Beam cannons! Take that you dirty Shivans!

I knew MW was being made but it's some relatively unknown studio doing it, correct? Piranha Games or something?

Can't believe it hasn't been mentioned yet:

X-COM.
Keep the gameplay IDENTICAL to the original, just give us shiny new graphics please.

Also: Freespace, Wings & Speedball

Agreed, any of the gold box D&D games need to be redone. Still have my 5.25" floppy sets. Pool of Radiance was remade a long while ago but was buggy as hell.
