With the HD Jet Set Radio finally on the way, we thought we'd take a look at five games that should be re-made in HD for our digital platform. Some of them could be huge online hits and some are just bizarre games that would work great under a 1200 or less MSP price-point. So let's worry about Y2K again before worrying about the apocalypse in this list.
