I'm pretty sure there's been online versions of Worms.

Pokemon is a natural fit for an online game.

The list could be near-infinite.

I'll just mention one old game and one ancient game that wouldn't even need to be upgraded visually... just insert code to get them online, and they'd be awesome.

1. Intellivision: Sea Battle
2. Genesis: Herzog Zwei

I really wish Road Rash would come out, except EA would not have XBL support and we would miss out on another great game.

How long before we see an exclusive online Fighting game that allows character creation like most RPG? Sorta of a DOA with an Everquest/Aesheron's Call/DOC character creation/development that you only play against other onliners?

Oh, and Pong.

That would be awesome. I've still got that game and my Intellivision.

See, someone could take MKII, clean up the graphics a little bit, add online functionality, and stick it on the Xbox at $15-20 a pop.

How would this NOT work? With any of the games mentioned here...

At least give us some online collections. Hell, I think people would play Combat for the Atari online if they could.

Tons and tons of games. Any of those Old School 4-player side scrollers at the arcade: Double Dragon (2-player), The Simpsons, Aliens. All the old WWF wrestling games where you could be Big Boss Man and the other version where you could be Typhoon (or was it hurricane).

Tons and tons of games basically.
