A second chance with a new generation?

Zombies are all the rage…formerly living beings that are re-animated back to life, though in changed form.
Usually for the worse.
But I’d like to see some dead games come back to life…games that never were, that should have been this generation, that when revived for next gen consoles would re-animate into a new life with even better improvements.
These are the Top 10 games I’d like to see revived at E3 2013 for the next gen. Do you think Xbox One and PS4 or Wii U should have any of these games?

OXCGN’s Sniper Elite V2 Wii U Review
Nazi elimination at its finest
by Nicholas Laborde

Last year, Rebellion under publisher 505 Games released the sequel to the cult classic Sniper Elite title, Sniper Elite V2.
It saw players donning the role of Karl Fairburne, an Office of Strategic Services agent (precursor to the CIA) tasked with dismantling the German V-2 rocket program.
V2 improved upon the original’s formula in pretty much every single way, and while it was by no means a perfect game, it was an enjoyable experience that pleased WW2 and sniping fans alike.
Now, a year later, we’ve got a Wii U port of the game, and we’re here to tell you if it’s worth it or not.
Is this more than just a port?

OXCGN’s New Super Mario Bros. U Review
Hooked on the brothers

It’s been a while since we’ve had another console side scrolling Mario title, but Mario has finally burst onto our screens in [near] full HD in the Wii U launch title New Super Mario Bros. U.
While the formula on display here is anything but new, this side scrolling platformer maintains the high standard set by its predecessors all those years ago and is a must buy for all Wii U owners.
Is it any good? Read here

The Console DayZ

First, take a gaming niche that is nearly completely worn out and overdone.
Second, use an incredible new console and its intuitive controller to redefine how players interact with this game.
Third, use the new console’s social aspects to its full capacity and intertwine it with the game wherever possible.
Fourth and finally, take inspiration from some of the most influential games of recent years.
When you follow all of these steps, the end result is ZombiU.
It’s the standout hardcore launch title of the Wii U, and at the end of the day, is one of the most brilliant, misunderstood games of recent years.
English head bashing this way!
