Debate fuels my Fire
For reference, I collected several responses from this thread into the poll here. I didn't include every suggestion made on that thread (there were a lot), but I did do my best to collect all the modules that I saw were recommended at least twice.

I can expand the poll if I see more popular suggestions in the comments, however the results will likely skew towards modules who are initially on the list, so this poll is obviously not very scientific. Just a fun exercise!

I'm giving everyone 5 votes as well, as obviously WotC can adapt many modules to 5E, not just one! Also, some modules are collected as a single response (Slavers for example) as they really belong together and shouldn't be split up. Also, I am aware that some of these are already adapted by Goodman Games; this is not a critique of their work.

I would be very surprised to see WotC either A) step on the licensing deal they have with Goodman Games by remaking any of the OAR modules (if you want them to be on Roll20, as was said on the other thread, lean on WotC, who have a no-digital clause in their license with Goodman) or B) remake any of the Paizo-written Adventure paths, which would practically be an advertisement for their company. ("Hey, this was a great adventure path, wasn't it? Please don't look to see if they've done any adventure paths since.")

I would bet money on a Ghosts of Saltmarsh treatment for Slavers and Desert of Desolation, though. And I would definitely be interested in a Red Hand of Doom remake, especially if it was part of a Nentir Vale gazetteer.

Heck, I would like an updated Scourge of the Sword Coast from the 5e playtest. This would make a great intro box set.

I don't see them updating the Paizo adventures, because there's probably a legal headache there (probably why Paizo themselves haven't done the same). Personally, I would love to see Rahasia updated. Having run that back in 2019, some things didn't translate well, and I couldn't come up with anything at the time to replicate it. Basic and 5e are rather different (elves being both race and class, gargoyles being much much less frightening than their Basic counterparts, some monsters not even existing). The story itself doesn't need much changing, just some of the mechanics. Even the Classic Modules Today version didn't really help much.

I voted for all of the Mystara ones, because they are the ones I am most likely to purchase on sight.

Goodman Games might be leading the charge on this, since they have already done X2: "Castle Amber," B4: "The Lost City," X1: "The Isle of Dread" and B1,B2: "Into the Borderlands." It's a shame that WotC isn't interested in pursuing the Mystara line, but I'm thankful that at least someone out there is.

I hope GG's next project is a combination of X4: "Master of the Desert Nomads", X5 "Temple of Death," X10 "Red Arrow Black Shield," and that they incorporate elements from GAZ2: "The Emirates of Ylaruam." That would make an awesome adventure path, IMO.

The only one I was ever truly interested in was Dead in Thay (to the point where my mind was phantomly adding in "And loving it" on to the title."). I assume the Baldur's Gate one would be pretty interesting though.
Against the Cult of Chaos sounds like it might be my ideal on-ramp to Ptolus games, as it apparently combines N1, one of my favorite adventures of all time, and B2, with a stronger focus on the Cult of Chaos, which is a big element in Ptolus.

Next up is Temple of Elemental Evil, a two-volume set coming later this year, their first AD&D OAR adventure. No word on what's next after that, but they've announced OAR projects in the past at GaryCon, which is happening this weekend.
