Fans Should Be Cautious About Games that Exploit Nostalgia and Hype

The Breath of the Wild team told us a few weeks ago that they built an NES prototype to test out their ideas. One fan thought that was a great idea, and turned it into a fan game. The game has since been taken down, due to a complaint from Nintendo’s attorneys. However cool this game was, I think that the creator wanted this to happen. Fans should be cautious about fan games that can exploit their nostalgia and hype by using familiar characters without permission.
