Game Remakes and Earthworm Jim HD

Lately I've been playing Earthworm Jim HD, and it brings up some "Groovy!" times. I'm really enjoying it! The game looks great in HD, and I wouldn't mind an HD remake of Earthworm Jim 2.

I've talked about game remakes, and how much I love the idea of it. I figured I would compile a list of games I would love to see in HD, more options of difficulty, a chance of adding multiplayer to single player games, and just have a flash back to the time I played the originals. Sadly the Wii isn't in HD, but that doesn't mean they can't do it. The re-imagining of A Boy and His Blob is a great example.

Crash Bandicoot - Just like Sly Cooper, I would love to have Crash Bandicoot 1, 2, 3, and Crash Team Racing remade. Co-op modes for each game would be great, and yes that means co-op online.

Earthbound - I would settle for no remake, and just putting the game on the DS, or the Wii (like they did with Chrono Trigger). At first I thought I would love it in HD, but I'm not sure. Also they should add Mother 3 (Earthbound 2) as an Earthbound collection (It was never released in America.). And finish the Earthbound that was going to be on the N64!

The Lost Vikings - Might not be really recognizable, but Rocket Knight, and the upcoming Bonk are not either. I love the puzzles in The Lost Vikings, and the abilities of each viking.

Paperboy - This would call for a remake of both Paperboy 1 and 2. Add the ability to choose different bikes (with different speeds, and health), and even a chance to unlock a car if you beat the game 100%. Add multi-player co-op with each person on each side of the road. Maybe add a new part of the game that is just obstacle courses. There are a ton of ideas that would make a remake to Paperboy great!

Jetpack - Remember DOS? I don't either except for Jetpack, and Jetpack Santa! This was one of the first computer games I ever played, and I had such a blast playing it. I did some research, and it looks like there is talk about a remake! Very good news indeed. Please fix the noises though, they did get annoying.

Don't be surprised if I put out another list of other games I want remakes of.
