At the time of this post, there are 2 “reboot” games on Kickstarter. One for the 1979 game Stop Thief! and one for the PC horror game The 7th Guest.
As much as my heart skipped a beat when the announcement of these two old favorites of mine being revisioned for modern day, there is a part of me that winces at the thought that they may screw it up and take what was a fondly held memory of my childhood and pile drive into the ground harder than a Tombstone finisher by WWE’s The Undertaker. I am painfully reminded what usually happens when somebody tries to “update” an old favorite like Hollywood making the 58th version of Spiderman. It usually does not live up to the memory of what it once was.
What do you think? Do you expect these new versions to be as good if not better than their long lost originals? Are you gonna purchase them in hopes to relive fun times long past or stay clear of them in preservation of a fond memory and not risk tainting it?

Until then, see you at the gaming table!
