The Importance of Reboots

Reboots are a necessary part of pop culture, not so much for the fans or for their almost guaranteed monetary return, but for the themes. We can turn to Batman to show us psychopathy, existentialism, or more recently the effects and consequences of terrorism and freedom (not to mention how to make a terrible, plot-hole ridden movie). We turn to Spiderman to understand teenage angst and how those who are thrust into a position of responsibility deal with it. And we (used) to turn to Final Fantasy to see how small events and the will of few, can have global effects. Character, plot, dialogue, scenario, and all of the other delightful things that make up story are simply the bearers of the palanquin that carries the all important, all powerful, theme. (DmC: Devil May Cry, Lara Croft, Next-Gen, PS3, Xbox 360)

reboots are a good thing if done right and at the right time, and that Japanese games should NOT AND NEVER be handled to western devs...see what happened to Silent Hill franchise and now DMC they turned that game into a casual button masher game with easy to perform combos, cheap boss fights and wacky generic characters design ugh!
