What I really want to see is Crimson Skies. Same folks who came up with Mechwarrior, but crazy awesome 1930s with zeppelins for commerce and AIR PIRATES! Zeppelin riding, fighter flying air pirates! That and the fact that it was the best ode to 1930s style action drama this side of Indiana Jones, oh god what a game that was. Sure they're working on mechwarrior first, but they also got the CS license, and have said kinda obliquely that they had plans for it. I have to say that's probably my favorite flight sim ever, and I played tie fighter. Between the impeccable voice acting (in the pc version at least), ridiculous rule of cool planes and zeps, and a sense of style second to none, it's worth a play even today. Even better, it still works with xp, even though it won't hardware render through a pcie card. And in case you aren't convinced to give it a try, you steal the spruce goose and race through a hollywood set in the course of the game.
But yes, sign me up for those remakes if they're even half good. Hell, in the case of tie fighter, we need flight sims badly enough I don't care if it's good or not, the companies need encouragement.
