A re-imagined Space Hawk would be awesome. I played a lot of it when it was new (goes back to "that's all we had to play so of course we played it") but I think it's basically forgotten now. If it gets a good backstory and 2019 graphics and smoother play, it's a win as resembling Asteroids with an infinite play field. Maybe like http://atariage.com/forums/topic/263171-wishing-for-a-new-intellivision-game-space-squadron/?p=3715956

 And this may ruffle some feathers...but take Space Hawk and give it better/clearer purpose and gameplay.

I can't claim to be the INTV faithful. I have a tiny collection and have not played as much INTV as I would have liked. However, I am a bigger Atari guy and I could only wish that the new Atari was going the direction that INTV is going.

I like cartridges, and I hate how my Xbox has to download everything. But that is maibly due to price point of if I pay $60 my disc should have the game on it...

Do you use maibly for the gap between maybe and probably? I frequently use maybably, which doesn't flow as well, but it's fun to say.

^^ This! I totally agree that this would be an awesome feature to be able to choose from playing the "classic" version or the "new" version at a whim. Great thought here and I hope this can be implemented in some fashion.

 

I just hope Data East gets their head out of their arses and lets Lock N Chase to be added.

 

Me and my dear old mom (RIP) played a TON of it back in the day. When i play it today i can hear her cackling laugh in my head..............

I can't even count on my phone to catch stuff anymore. I guess it has just given up.

Let us go with mainly-maybe...

Well I'm going to start using it :)

On a side note, the inventor of autocorrect died recently. I never even knew he was I'll.

I am now thinking that the console needs a light gun, or an equivalent "target shooting" thing with the controllers. I have no idea how it would be done at this juncture, but I think it's needed. Duck Hunt on the NES was a real attractor back in the day (not that shooting ducks for fun is that PC in 2018).

Maybe simulate throwing a discus with the controller. A player has to do the spin while the gyroscope in the controller tracks the movement and then pushing a side button does the release, and then on-screen the disc flies properly.

My understanding is that every single custom controller created in the past failed in the market because people do not seem to want to buy a special device for a limited set of games.  The only exception to this, as far as I know, was Guitar Hero.

And developers don't want to support something that's only a subset of the market. If the custom controller came bundled with every console sold that would be different.
