The original Tetris for NES. The one with the Kremlin on it.
It's the only game I've ever played where 2 players on a split screen could play their own game. 1 player could lose and restart without affecting the other's game.
It may have been basic, but that feature alone was great.

Lots of old NES classics. Teenage mutant ninja turtles 2 and Zelda come to mind.

This new Star Wars game EA is making sounds like it could be just what the KOTOR fans have been clamouring for.

It's nothing like Kotor. It's like Uncharted or Tomb Raider.

I'm scratching my head a bit thinking of a good example of a remastered/remade game. I've seen a lot of mediocre remakes- looking at you, Xcom - but not anything to write home about.

They're action-adventure games with 7-12 hour campaigns. Lots of side stuff too but not as in depth as an KOTOR which is more of an action rpg game. If you ever get a chance, try out Tomb Raider or Uncharted, very fun!

Resident Evil 2 remake for PS4 this year took one of my favorite games ever and made it a lot better. I'd like to see the entire series remade in fact.
Don't fool yourself each and every cheer for the Raps is a cheer for Drake.

Dude the new XCOM is brilliant.

Just to be clear: "Remaster" = better textures or framerate on an old game, possibly an upgrade to UI / controls. Often involves porting to a new engine. "Remake" = a brand new game inspired by an old one. In movie terms, the new Jumanji starring The Rock is a remake, a 4K up-rezzed BluRay release of the Robin Williams original would be a remaster. Set expectations accordingly.

Games that have been remastered excellently for modern systems: Uncharted 1-3 (the Nathan Drake collection), The Last of Us, Metro 2033 and Metro Last Light, Skyrim Special Edition, Halo Master Chief Collection, Bioshock 1 & 2, Age of Empires 2 HD. And many more. A good remaster should make an old game accessible on modern platforms and with modern control / UI expectations.

The new XCOM is anything but brilliant. It's the definition of a "railroad game", with a single viable strategy that strings you along a path. It's like the JRPG version of a strategy game. The Long War mod adds a little bit of agency into the game, and XCOM 2 is better in every way, but XCOM is just a butchery of an old IP.
