    Well, they might be available on GameTap, but you have it exactly correct.  The Classic versions of these games (without any marketing hype) are available.  We live in an ADD society.  James it correct, you have to take the meat of the old games and re-hash them with a point and click ADD interface and make the game solvable in like two days as opposed to two months.  I don’t believe interest in the games is dead so much as the people that played them.  This was 20 years ago +!  People today don’t have a clue what they were.  Therefore the amount of people on GameTap that would even consider them is tiny at best.  Most gamers today was like 5 when Doom came out, think about it.

    This is a great idea, but from my understanding it is wrapped in legal issues.  Sierra was sold and thus the intellectual property rights for the games as well.  It is my understanding that the owners of the rights aren’t terribly interested in seeing these sorts of games return.

    So in lue of that, the next best thing would be to make new games in the spirit of the Sierra style games.  We have been looking into the interest level of these type of games and may build a game engine to fascilitate this genre should interest prove high enough.

    So since you the old Sierra games won’t be coming to systems near you, who is up for new adventure games in similar fashion?
