[EG]EA discusses Road Rash, Populous reboots - Page 2

Anyone up for a Road Rash revival? Or how about a new Powermonger? Well, according to a top EA exec, the publisher hasn't forgotten about its vintage brands but worries they might not be quite as good as you remember them.

They're still better than their current games. tongue.gif

And oh, picking up the fuel. Much frustration. Great games, though -- although the reboot would have to be as difficult as the original, or I wouldn't want anything to do with it. Can you imagine blowing through that game with little opposition? Boring.

I gotta admit... This is pretty true. I was so excited to find my old stash of Playstation games and disappointed to find that I hate 99% of them now. Don't get me wrong, it has nothing to do with the graphics or "aging" of the games and they'll always be classics in my mind. But some games that I used to play day-and-night truly suck now that i'm not under 9 years old.

post #19 of 34
I guess this is where my age is starting to show. I LOVED road rash on my sega back in the day. Then they made the N64 version. While it was fun, it was nowhere near as good as the old school road rash. I remember hating how if one of the players sucked, the game would automatically make them catch up. There was none of that nonsense in the sega day!! If you sucked you came in last like you should!! Everyone here just seems to be talking about the N64/PS1

I'd like to see a remake now though
