So yet again I ask the question. Would you buy Freespace 3? YES OR NO
Derek, don't be obtuse. You know the question isn't that simple. The answer, of course, is: it depends on how it turns out. Only fanbois buy based on a title alone.
Thus, the real answer to your question... if you developed it, I would lay odds of about 500:1 that I would find it irritating, bug-ridden and a colossal waste of the license. So, for me the answer is very likely to be "NO." Or, at least, "NOT FROM YOU."
Plus, you make it sound like you're the lone white knight. The only shining hope for the franchise. Except it's not like it's even officially on the block... as you yourself mentioned elsewhere, Interplay has started
I would rather you leave it alone, in hopes of a developer I have more faith in picking it up.
Virus = very yes?
That's not a good prize!
