I’m trying hard not to put my own views in this post. Your views are much more important. I am doing a paper for college IT Ethics class which requires me to look at the issue from the point of view of all stakeholders including VU. I have played games from Zork to Syberia. Sierra was at the center of the greatest games I have ever played when Ken and Roberta ran the show.
Two of my main questions for this may be:
Is it ethical for Vivendi to withhold access to old software?
Is it ethical for Vivendi to prevent developement of fan sequals to their software if they have no intent to continue the series?
KQ9 is a good example of a fan sequal. But, now with VU in control, I have seen very little updates on their web site.
