  • GamesIndustry.biz - Game remasters must respect creative history, not just make a fast buck.
    "The least we should do, however, is respect the medium's creative history enough to make it possible for players to access the original versions of games even after an updated version is released -- let's not get all George Lucas about this, in other words. Ideally, though, publishers with an eye on re-releases of their classic older titles should try to respect their back catalogue as part of a creative canon and treat it accordingly, rather than just looking for ways to make a quick buck from it -- not just because they have a duty to preserve their industry's creative history, but also for straightforward commercial reasons."
