(re: re: re: Sierra Game Remakes)
I really liked what Tierra “did to” KQ2. They made it into a much more robust game, but still kept the basics from the original — it was like playing a brand new Sierra game. I appreciate all their hard work and think what they’re doing is amazing — especially for free. The original KQ2 may have sentimental value for some, but it’s not much by today’s standards. Not only did AGDI give us something new to play, they did it in a way that was respectful to the original.
I don’t see how a remake is harming anyone or “ruining the experience.” If you don’t want to play the remake, go play the original — it’ll give you a good 45-minutes or so of entertainment.
On the flip side, those who want to experience the game (and the feeling of what those old games were like, for free, on today’s computers without technical problems) can do so with the remake.
Just my $0.02. I’m looking forward to the QfG2 remake – in fact, I’m waiting to play the rest in the series until after that comes out (I have already played the QfG1 VGA remake of Sierra’s, but the rest of the series is currently sitting on my shelf, on hold).
