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.

Twilight Princess HD- The Real Reason Behind The HD Remake

There are probably only a handful of people in the world who were more excited than me when Nintendo announced that Twilight Princess would be getting an HD remake. The game meant so much to me during my freshman year of high school. I found an escape from school related cares when I turned on my Wii and heard the music on the title screen. It still brings make nostalgic tears. Those feelings rushed back as I played the game over again in HD. Ten years after the original release of the game, Twilight Princess received a well deserved update in graphics and gameplay.

That being said, is there another, more important reason for remaking the game? Besides making money (I mean let’s face it; money drives most decisions.), I believe that there is a secret meaning behind releasing Twilight Princess HD and it has something to do with ZeldaU.
