VG Republic Writes: Tears fell from my eyes, tears of joy when I saw the rumor that Need For Speed: Underground was the next game coming from Criterion Games. The potential reboot of one of the last generations most beloved racing franchises was invigorating. I have never been much of a racing game fan, but Need For Speed: Underground was one of those games that grabbed every video game fan out there by their crotch and made them scream Yippie-Ki-A-Mother-F&%$er! It didn’t matter because of all of the options that people wanted were available in the game as far as customization and a need for speed that was unrivaled and met within the title. The game was fantastic. Then tears of sadness filled my eyes, and my heart broke as Alex Ward, the creative director for Criterion, wrote upon his Twitter words that scathed my soul, “Totally fake. Remakes and Reboots? #movedon“.
