When Pure Xbox relaunched back in early 2020, one of the things we used to do as part of these weekly "Pick One" features was to ask the PX community which classic Xbox games they'd like to see remastered.

We did a bunch of these over a number of weeks, and the first three games that came out as winners were The Simpsons Hit & Run, Project Gotham Racing and Left 4 Dead. Unfortunately we're no closer to getting a remaster for any of these, so we thought we'd take this chance to revisit the old concept and pit these titles against each other.

Remember, you can only pick one!

Let's take a look at what we're working with:

Project Gotham Racing (2001)

"Xbox's super-slick Project Gotham Racing lets players strap into more than 20 licensed cars and compete on more than 300 circuits in cities around the world. In addition, the game boasts 100-plus individual and wheel-to-wheel challenges, an arcade mode, and a four-person multiplayer option. You may want to put your seat back--this could be a long drive."

Left 4 Dead (2008)

"From Valve (the creators of Counter-Strike, Half-Life and more) comes Left 4 Dead, a co-op action horror game for the PC and Xbox 360 that casts up to four players in an epic struggle for survival against swarming zombie hordes and terrifying mutant monsters."

The Simpsons: Hit & Run (2003)

"Springfield's biggest driving hazards are let loose! Drive yourself crazy in lawless fender-benders and chaotic head-on collisions as your favourite Simpsons character. Unbuckle your seatbelt and set out on foot to investigate creepy crop circles and a diabolical conspiracy threatening to obliterate Springfield. Drop that donut and grab the wheel!"

Let us know which of these Xbox classics you'd like to see remastered down in the poll below.
