I loved the X-Wing and TIE Fighter games as a kid. X-Wing Alliance was my favorite out of them. I've been desperate to find a modern game like them, and I've tried the Elite Dangerous/Star Citizen type games and they are pretty overwhelming in terms of the time requirement. I agree with xorius, EVERSPACE is pretty fun, and it's the closest thing to X-Wing/TIE Fighter I've found, though it gets repetitive after a while.
I would love to see a reemergence of adventure games like Monkey Island and King's Quest. Telltale made somewhat recent installment of Monkey Island that wasn't all that great, and The Odd Gentlemen came out with a new King's Quest that was alright, but they were both that episodic installment style game with very little in common with adventure games from their heyday.
