Modern Guilt: The Argument Over Sequels And Reboots

Pixels or Death's Mike Barrett takes a minute to reflect on the year and our recent negative reaction to every remake, reboot, sequel that tries to shake things up.

"The truth is that everything sucks to some degree. And just because there’s something we really loved about a game doesn’t mean that was the “defining feature” future entries in a series need to have. It’s like reboots and sequels need to earn the brand name and justify its use to appease a crowd. " (Culture, Thief)

I still play and love most titles that I liked as a kid, sometimes even more that titles I play now.
