What psygnosis/psyclapse games should sony remake?

I was thinking the other day how much I used to enjoy Stryxx back in the day. This one actually had some game-play but was still a tough old bird.
It had great animation ala another world, space-bike sections, spaceship sections and platforming. This was all wrapped up in a retro future vibe with the customary cool intro sequences we all expect from the great Psygnosis.

Shadow of the beast 4 is in the works...what other Psygnosis games should sony consider making sequels to. many Psygnosis games lacked game-play but some did not, like stryxx etc.

From an artistic point of view agony could hold a sequel; game-play wise the original is very, very weak indeed.

I agree.

Psygnosis games should be made by Pysgnosis, just like Sonic games should be made by Sonic Team.

I have no interest in modern remakes that are essentially just cheap cash-ins for the big companies.

It was a sad day when sony broke their word to the psygnosis boss and fully absorbed psygnosis into sony. Still, he should have expected this when he sold them the company. Bad move...

There are plenty of good ip's to play around with though imo.

There is many reasons why I just hate Sony and this is one of them.

If I had a few million dollars and wanted to start up a new game studio, I would approach Sony about buying the Psygnosis name/logo (possibly the back-catalog as well so I could make the old Amiga games I loved when I was younger free) and name it that.

That's good answer Brett71 and Predseda. I love Psygnosis games on PSX and those made for Amiga. Psygnosis games should be made by Psygnosis crew.

You realize that many of the PlayStation games are being made by ex-Psygnosis staff, right...?

Probably yes. But Sony is killing game studios, killing music bands, killing independent movies. So I dont support it in any way, doesn't matter playstation is good or not. Call me ídiot, extremist or silly, but I even thrown away radio from my car after I bought it, because was Sony.

True. Reflections still exist and martin edmonson has worked there on and off over the years.

Sony are improving their act with the ps4 and the courting of indie devs though. I think they had no choice as financially they are in the shit, save for the playstation division.

Microsoft, Nintendo and Sony have all done questionable stuff over the years. Pick one, because they all have their skeletons...and we still gotta play games...

'Sony' and 'trust' don't go in the same sentence, EVER.

I still remember when Sony shutdown www.lik-sang.com despite Sony bosses buying stuff from the site. They got each Sony localisation unit (e.g. Sony UK, Sony Germany, Sony USA etc.) to sue Lik-Sang at the same time. Unsuprisingly Lik-Sang couldn't afford to fight 40 or so legal disputes at the same time and were forced out of business.

Yeah, but having Psygnosis staff split between 20 other divisions isn't the same thing.

It's like Ed and Tim Stamper (founders of Ultimate Play The Game, which eventually became Rare) and the other main guys at Rare being split amongst other divisions (or creating their own). They create their best work when they are together as one team.

Sony isn't the only company killing game studios. Electronic Arts has been doing it for the past 20 years or so - Bullfrog (Theme Park) and Westwood Studios (Command and Conquer) spring to mind. Infogrames has started doing it too

No, I am sorry but my hateness to SONY is probably pathological.
