I don't mind remakes if they stay true to the original. This is the kind of remake I like where the graphics stay true to the original, but basically increase the resolution and effects. The main turn off for some will be the different voice actors, but I never cared for Tim Curry as GK anyways.AndreaDraco wrote:I know, you're right.Collector wrote:But keep in mind, this may be the only path to a new GK.
My opinion on remakes is more a philosophical one, like I said on Facebook. I can think of many good remakes, some even great, but it's the need for a remake to begin with that I don't understand. Yes, graphics and sound age, and so do the mechanics, but the truly important part - the story - remains the same. So, like with movies or tv shows, as soon as I hear the word remake my mind usually runs to monetary reasons or dumbed-down versions, or both.
That old VGA era is an awkward phase. I think those games have aged the worst. The AGI and early EGA SCI games still have a cartoony charm. But with the VGA games, I think "these games would look gorgeous in high resolution." Now if only Quest for Glory would get this kind of treatment.
