5 16-Bit RPGS to We Want for Rerelease Besides Earthbound

Earthbound has finally found it's way onto the Wii U. Don't know why it was necessary to include Ness in a dozen spin-offs before we were allowed a chance to play him on the virtual console in his original adventure, but whatever. This is a great opportunity for folks that missed one of the best RPGs ever to relive it, and maybe generate some interest so Shigesato Itoi will return and craft us a new one for the modern age.

Here are five other 16-bit RPGs that deserve to see rerelease. (3DS, Culture, Earthbound, Retro, Wii U)

Sorry, but I really don't get it. Why do people care about re-releases? It's the same game that was originally released. You can play that same game, at any time. What's the big deal?

because not everyone wants to pirate the games

Until a game actually IS re-released, I fail to see how it's piracy. If you physically cannot pay the company for the game, there's nothing wrong with it.

That's because you're not terribly bright.

Piracy is literally the only option for most older games, because A) those games are no longer manufactured, and B) the platforms those games were on are no longer manufactured.

If you want to play ANY console game up to the PS2 era these days, your options are basically to either pirate it and emulate it, or buy a digital re-release... which is only an option for a tiny fraction of titles.

And if you still don't understand, then we've moved on from bright to dim, rapidly approaching a total and complete absence of light.

EDIT: And saying that it's alright to steal something if you can't pay for it... wow. Just: wow.

There's also this thing called ebay, where you can buy old stuff. Most if it is very cheap, too. Personally, I still own lots of old systems and games.

If "piracy" is not taking any money from the company that owns the game, who is hurt by it, exactly? Hell, plenty of companies actually make their games freeware after they are x amount of years old. There's a reason. They aren't making any money on them, anyway.

By the way, maybe if you tried being civil, you'd have more bubbles. Just a thought. Your opinion is not the "end all, be all". Deal with it.

No hate. I just don't understand it.
