    Do younger gamers care about these old franchises, times have moved on and all these games represent ideas/genres better implemented by modern descendants.
    Won't old timers (like me) just grump that it's not as good as it was on the blah blah, back in 19blah... But I'll still keep my fingers crossed for a Wing Commander revival.

    Is it trademarks or patents that EA are slinging? Because while I'm no solicitor, as far as I was aware they're different things. I ask because of the picture caption mentioning patents, while the body text talks about trademarks.

    ...

    Want Wing Commander, Syndicate and Dungeon Keeper. Keeping the core gameplay but updating the graphics on all of them will be enough.

    WC2 was the game that brought me to PC-Gaming and made me buy WC1 only one and a half week later - still have all parts installed on various older machines kept only for that purpose...

    New Road Rash - sign me up. I still have very fond memories of that game. Though the 3-D N64 version wan't a patch on the original, so they'd better not ruin it.

    Theme Park would do well to be brought up to date. There's not really much competition for Roller Coaster Tycoon.

    Syndicate would probably turn into a 3d sandbox, like gta with trenchcoats.

    I'd love to see a reboot of Wing Commander, Syndicate and Road Rash. Especially the first two :) There has been a criminal lack of decent space combat games in recent years. I'd be in favour of WC3-4-5 type sci-fi FLV for that matter, was cheesy but it did suit the game...

    This is spooky, I was thinking about a Wing Commander revival just last night when I found an old WC3 box as I was clearing out the study.

    I'd be well up for a bit of Dungeon Keeper.

    I know it's Lucas Arts, but my one wish would be to bring Tie Fighter to Live Arcade. Some of the best multiplayer fun I've ever had.

    Wing commander. Oh god. I loved 3. 4 was kinda confusing because it was movie first with a game strapped to it and prophecy came out of nowhere with bugs and ****. Don't get me started on the movie. Mark hamill cameo is a must.

    I might consider getting a joystick again.

    Surely you mean "Had" - I thought dev work had more or less ceased as of last year sometime?
