Am I back? I think I am.
I don’t know. Remakes can be good: Resident Evil on the Gamecube is fantastic. But I still play from time to time the original on the PSOne too. People clamor for all kinds of readily available games to be remade, as if they were currently unplayable. Can’t think of any other medium so OK with burying hundreds of works every few years.
PS: No hate toward FFVII, hope they do a good job. The conversation surrounding it, though: people are missing out on some great stuff out there just because it’s not in HD.
