Looking for an opinion

Or the NY Times just ran of stories. They ran one asking for students to speak up in their Education section. "What Game Would You Like to Redesign?"

I'm still trying to figure out what that has to do with education, but ok.

It's actually a good question. We're at the point in our gaming history that remakes are inevitable and are happening. Even madam Lara Croft is getting a spanking new image thanks to SE and Crystal Dynamics. It looks spiffy. Back to good ol' dungeon crawling Lara with a more reasonable cup size.

The article focuses on Dungeon's and Dragons and answers range all the way to Duck-Duck-Goose.

Of course my response is a video game. But I like spinning the wheel. My vote? Call of Duty.

Is the franchise just as popular as it's ever been? Yep. Doesn't mean I like it.

In fact I hate it. It's a copy/paste of the same game for years. Anything "new" or "cool" about the game is long gone. It needs to be re imagined. New life and ideas need to be introduced into the series. I don't know how doing the same thing over and over again could be entertaining. Maybe that's why these games do so one realizes just how bad they are.

What would you remake?
