(re: Preserving Ultima: Escape from Mt. Drash)
I hate game “collectors” who just take copies of games and never play them. I hate the same people who do this to comics, music, and movies. If we wanted to create things to never be played, I suppose you, Ken, could’ve just made pretty packaging. Now, to collect and to play a game, and to preserve games in a working status from the days of past . . . I applaude the efforts of ROM crackers, pirates, abandonware, and eBay for making access to these gems. Of course, if something’s copyrighted, a perfect good edition exists in one of four places: Imperial Tokyo Library, Library of Congress, Imperial London Library, and the Vatican Library. And at the Library of Congress, we can access everything in the library at any time.
