What previous gen games do you want remade for Live/PSN/VC??

I've been wishing for a few specific games lately, and it got me thinking about which games from the previous 2 gens would work well as multiplayer remakes on the 'arcade' services for the new consoles.

The game that sparked this for me, specifically, was Return Fire. One guy I knew had a 3DO, and we played that sucker until the wee hours all the time. Capture the flag with that game was sick, and it wouldn't be hard to do, say, as a 4-Player game on XBLA. I'm trying to track down a PS1 version of the game, but it's pretty tough to find (I sold my copy probably 9 years ago...) in any sort of condition I'd consider purchasing.

Another fave of mine from the past would be Guardian Heroes. If they could pull of a 2 or 3 player co-op version of that, it would simply rock. I really don't feel like pulling out my Saturn and hooking it up just to play this game right now.

So my list would be...

Return Fire
Guardian Heroes
Earthworm Jim 2
Motor Toon GP
Vigilante 8/Interstate '76
Loaded/ Re-Loaded


Any thoughts?

Wow, I will hunt this game down!!

Turtles in Time (arcade)
Final Fight (arcade)
Alien VS Predator (Capcom)
Mark of the Wolves
Street Fighter Alpha 3
Rival Schools or Project Justice

I know they did it for Tekken, and I think I would love Namco forever if they would release Soul Calibur III Arcade for the PSN with online play.

Silent Hill. When the movie was released there were rumors they were going to rerelease it ala the Resident Evil Gamcube remake. Would be nice to walk into a store and be able to buy the first three games again.

I know it isn't popular enough, but I would LOVE if someone would remake Beetle Adventure Racing from the N64. The game mechanics are perfect, just tweak the graphics and add online play and....god. I would buy whatever console just to play that.
