Opinion time: which game series most deserves to be resurrected? Whether it’s a childhood favourite, an underappreciated classic, or it’s just screaming out to be remade with the benefit of modern technology, there are a ton of awesome games that deserve another shot in the limelight.

And when we asked for your opinions over on Instagram, you came back to us with a veritable mountain of great answers.

So great, in fact, that we had some serious trouble deciding between them. So after much debate, we’ve trimmed back the list to focus on the most frequently requested games.

So in no particular order, here’s a selection of games that you think most deserve a second chance at life. What do you think of the lineup?

1. Portal

GLaDOS might be one of the more sadistic robots we’ve met in our gaming adventures, but we desperately miss her acerbic asides. Also, breaking physics is fun.

2. Banjo and Kazooie

Suggested by: _.tgtree._

Banjo and Kazooie made another appearance in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate recently, and now we can’t get enough of their antics.

3. Left 4 Dead

Suggested by: memeulation_

We’d be delighted to hear about another outbreak of the Green Flu. And after Resident Evil 2 and Days Gone, we’re just dying to sink our teeth into another zombie game…

4. Silent Hill

Suggested by: theantmancometh

What do we need in our lives? That’s right: more creeping horror that leaves us unable to sleep without a light on!

5. Dead Space

Suggested by: mike_watts92

Necromorphs, improvised weaponry, and the gut-wrenching terror of being alone in space with a bunch of reanimated corpses. What more could you possibly ask for?

6. Prince of Persia

Suggested by: jsroberts012

Time manipulation, parkour, platforming, and puzzles, plus a big old open world just like in Assassin’s Creed. Yes please.

7. Jet Set Radio

Suggested by: meaty.man.mason

Inline skates, rebellious teens, colourful graffiti, and a soundtrack so nostalgic it’ll punch you right back into the days of the Dreamcast. Perfection.

8. The Simpsons: Hit & Run

Suggested by: the_only_water_boy

Enough said.

9. Timesplitters

Suggested by: almost everyone else

Timesplitters was easily the most requested game in your responses, and we’re totally with you on this one. We all need more Harry Tipper in our lives. Right on.
