The elder statesman of video gaming news sites, GameSpy, has posted "Top 10 PC Games We'd Like to See Remastered", an article about... the top ten PC games they'd like to see remastered. The original Wing Commander takes the number seven slot. When they're right, they're right:
When I was in Junior High I helped the Confederation fight off the cat-like Kilrathi in the Vega campaign. I was stationed aboard the Tiger's Claw along with a memorable entourage of fellow flyboys. Till this day I still remember the wild antics of Manic, the cool calmness of Iceman, and the fatherly advice given to me by Paladin. I remember the first time I flew the bulky Scimitar and blowing away dozens of pancake-shaped Kilrathi Dralthi's with my Rapier. To say I have fond memories of the original Wing Commander from Origin Systems would be an understatement. I'd love to return to the Tiger's Claw and take down a few more of those rotten furballs. Better yet, I'd like to have my buddies join me and fly my wing... or against me.You can read the entire article, which includes classics like Sierra/Dynamix's Aces series, here.
