If you complain about classic movies being tampered with, how come you don't complain about classic games being tampered with? Because they are being tampered with...
Have you ever played the two PC games DOOM and QUAKE? Both games revolutionized the gaming industry in their own way. But they got so old people moved on to other games. But after the release of their source codes, people began to tinker with them so they can compete with today's hits, like Star Wars to the Matrix. Now both games have 3D models, hi-res textures, mp3 music, and other dandy crap that appeals to gamers today.
Here's a few pics for example:
As with Star Wars, they both look better than the original version, right? So why complain?
Now I am with you guys because Lucas does need to re-release the original version of his trilogy. We don't need to worry about DOOM and QUAKE though, because id re-releases them all the time. And they even let fans modify the game themselves, unlike Lucasfilm being the only one who can legally modify the films.
But if you wanna whine about movies and games, be my guest.
BTW, you can download the DOOM and QUAKE SEs here and here.
You need the original game's data files for it to run, so if you don't have the game, get the shareware versions.
