    There's two games i'd love to see brought to our platform:

    Carmageddon (SCI)

    Omikron the Nomad Soul (Quantic Dream)

    I picked these because both seem to be within the realm of possibility to run on the current hardware. Both are pre-dx8 games that do not use pixel shaders whatsoever and have fairly low poly count.

    I picked these over others first off because they are two of my absolute favorites from that era of gaming, and second because these two would add a lot of value to the platform.

    I'm sure there are plenty of fantasy port threads, but I have a hunch we might start seeing full featured titles like these appearing once apple starts up their premium games section. If this happens, I think that a lot of IP holders of mid 90's dx6-7 era titles may find the iphone a great place to bring back pc gaming classics into the fold and to make a few more bucks off of fairweather IP. We already can expect Cyberia at least :)
