(re: re: Re:)
I personally find this comment offensive. Please don’t tell me I don’t respect Sierra or Roberta and Ken. I could just as easily say you’re the one who doesn’t respect them by posting inflammatory comments such as this (directed at someone who did / said nothing wrong) on Ken’s messageboard.
I don’t want to start a flame war over this, it’s just not worth it. If you don’t like the remade games fine, stay away from them. But don’t say that people who do like them are disrespectful. Ken certainly hasn’t come forward and said that he doesn’t want us to talk about them here or that he is insulted by the fact that we like the remakes (which I highly doubt he is). Unless he does say something to that effect, there’s no reason not to discuss the remakes and give Tierra the praise that I (and clearly, a lot of other people) feel they deserve.
ps The KQ1 remake actually boosted the sales of King’s Quest 8, which was the only KQ game still available at retail when the KQ1 remake came out. That’s a lot more than you can say for abandonware.
