In the era of classic games getting HD remakes, there are a lot of opportunities to experience an old game in a whole new way, with updated graphics and gameplay. But not all are getting those remakes, and there are some glaring omissions that just seem wrong. So we decided make a list of all the classic games that aren't getting a remake, but they absolutely should. Check out our list of games that need an HD remake, vote up your favorites, and downvote the ones you don't think deserve a return in high definition.

One of the best space shooters of all time has to be Star Wars: X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter, allowing up to eight players to dogfight in a battle for supremacy. It's high time Microsoft brought back Allegiance, an innovative game the company later allowed to go into freeware. Of course, there's also Full Throttle, the classic point and click adventure that's absolutely begging for someone to come along and update those graphics for one last ride. When we're talking HD remakes, there are so many gems that we'd like to see revamped with modern tech.

So take a look at our list of video game remakes that just have to happen, vote up the games you wish had HD remakes and don't hesitate to add games from your own personal HD remake wishlist.
