Please, please leave the gameplay as-is. All we want is updated graphics and music. Please do what LucasArts did for their Monkey Island reboots. I guarantee you will win a whole new generation of gamers with minimal development costs.

I don't think that works, unless you have a specific word for "classic"

Some games would be fine: Tie Fighter, X-Wing, Privateer, etc.

But...

Doom 1 and Doom 2 - very fun in my youth. However now-a-days you aren't going to win anybody over with a re-hash with a new graphics engine. It was too basic: only movement, activate, shoot. I'd still find it fun, but I doubt it will win anyone over more than CoD or whatever.

Leisure Suit Larry - a fun and funny game with a mix of graphics and text based gaming. I'd get a kick out of it, but honestly that wouldn't fly so well. The whole "type in the commands" thing would probably make the youngsters today want to cut themselves.

Full Throttle (and similar) - I'd enjoy a remake but I doubt the average youngster today would enjoy that kind of game.

I could list more counter examples but you get the idea. As fun as some of the classics were, their mechanics are too primitive for today or were for a different generation.
