Games that need a remaster

Just gonna throw Asura's Wrath out there, because I never played it and it looks cool as heck, would love to have "complete edition" sort of remaster.
Speaking of games I have played, I would love to see Split/Second again. It's such a unique idea that is actually executed quite well.

Looking at my list of top games, some of the ones that jump out to me that could use an updated remaster/re-issue are:
Resistance: Fall of Man (or just the series in general)
Gauntlet: Dark Legacy
Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic
Heretic: Shadow of the Serpent Riders

Drakengard 3, really like the game but man the game run like shit. this game needs proper remaster/remake.
Shadow hearts probably isn't happening, last I checked some Japanese bank or Investment firm has the IP after Sancoth (later Azure) went bankrupt.

@dmcmaster Yeah heard that, think that IP could be lost forever unless some random game developer buys it.

@dmcmaster there’s also the thing where the main character considers raping an unconscious girl that I feel like MIGHT not fly today.

Was that the first or second? Most of my time with Shadow Hearts was with the 3rd game but I did briefly play the first I think.
Also Xenosaga, I would absolutely love to see Xenosaga get remastered, and maybe give a more worthwhile reward to beating the super boss in 3 (which was swimsuit for KOS-MOS I believe)

@dmcmaster first one
Just started Digital Devil Saga again. This needs a remaster. The PS2 Classics on PS3 look atrocious.

What always hurts me is how online games eventually close down. Even Halo 3 on Xbox 360 is shutting down this year but thank god it was remastered for MCC.
I'd love to go back and play remasters of older online games:
- SOCOM II, 3
- Battlefront 1 & 2
- BF 1943, BF2
It would also be nice if a lot of older couch co-op games had the option to play them online co-op with a remaster:
- Smackdown! Here Comes The Pain
- Resistance series (all games Campaign co-op)
- LOTR games based on the film
- The Warriors
EDIT: And to celebrate what we do have, that Baldur's Gate Dark Alliance Remastered is exactly the kind of thing I want more of (but not for $40).

I rented this from Blockbuster back in the day. Just pulled it up and it looks like it was developed by Avalanche Software (Disney Infinity, Hogwarts Legacy) so no wonder I recall it fondly. I have a feeling this IP had no legs, but the covert art attracted my kid-brain and I think this perfectly embodies all of these random B-tier games that I can barely remember from the GC/PS2 era, but I'd love to play on modern systems. It'll never happen; especially if I can't even remember them, but I miss these games nevertheless.

You know what? Shadows of the Empire deserves a remaster. I feel the game was highly regarded for a hot minute and then got relegated to being too old and janky (which it is). Give it some gameplay tweaks and better textures and it would be glorious again.
Fun fact: there were like 5 Tak games, and a TV show from Nickoldeon. Was supposed to have a movie too.
Battlefront 1 and 2 are still playable on PC and Xbox I think.
