44% Of People Want To See A Remake Of This Nintendo 64 Classic

The trend of video game remakes has been gaining plenty of steam in recent years.

Final Fantasy 7 Remake and Resident Evil 2 stand out as two of the best examples when it comes to successful, big-budget remakes. Then there are other outstanding remakes worth mentioning, such as The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening for the Nintendo Switch and Resident Evil for the Nintendo GameCube. Props definitely have to go out to Activision's remake trilogies for Crash Bandicoot and Spyro the Dragon as well.


For fans of the Nintendo 64, there's a multitude of games from that classic system that they'd like to see get a full-fledged remake. SVG put out a survey that targeted those very same gamers, and a total of 1,700 of them casted their vote. The N64's games library features a wide swath of classics that are highly deserving of a modern rendition that can endear themselves to a whole new audience.

The N64 title that got the most votes is one of the most revolutionary first-person shooters of all time. And what's funny is that game already got itself a proper remake!

Fans want ANOTHER GoldenEye remake

SVG's survey showed that 44% of its voters made it abundantly clear that they want a remake of GoldenEye 007.

However, those voters have already gotten their wish granted. Back in 2010, Activision published a modern reimagining of the popular N64 FPS on the Wii on behalf of developer Eurocom. Instead of playing out the events of the original game as Pierce Brosnan's version of James Bond, players engaged in some global espionage action as current Bond actor, Daniel Craig. The Goldeneye 007 remake features improved visuals, changes to the original game's plot, and online multiplayer. This remake was followed by an enhanced port, GoldenEye 007: Reloaded.


SVG's survey revealed other games that fans want to see remade: Super Mario 64 (which got 28% of the vote), Pokemon Stadium (which earned 14% of the vote), and Banjo-Kazooie (8%). 

The "Other" category (which got 6% of the vote) featured a few other notable N64 titles that were brought up by voters for a remake treatment: Paper Mario, and Diddy Kong Racing were among the many games mentioned in the survey's comments section.
