It was a great game that would benefit greatly from newer tech. That doesn't mean there's any obsession with the past.

If it were as easy to remake a movie and have the remake be as great as the original, more such things would happen(it STILL happens, but many of them suck).

That's not to say succeeding with this will be easy, though.

In any case, why WOULDN'T people want to see things they loved look even better if possible?
