re: So just like the movies then!
Sorry Sir, but I will have to strongly disagree with you. Remastering old games isn't a bad thing in my objective and biased view, but a good thing for those who never played them and those who wish to revisit them.
example: Half life, is being remade into a new game called " Black Mesa", HL is a big game and many of the new comer (who were too young to play it, or didn't play it back in the day) would be interested in playing it. But considering the graphics you get with today's games, it is unfair to expect them to enjoy the original game. The graphics difference between HL and HL2 is _large_ and only a remake could bring it back so that new player can enjoy it. This apply to many old games like Final Fantasy 7.
The game shown in the article isn't an old game, I'll give you that, but remastering those games and bringing them to a better platform can't be a bad thing no matter what you try to say.
