valve has done it, and at a cheap price too.
Quake 3 redone in the Tech 5 engine would still be Quake 3. Its not 1999 anymore. My days of rocket jumping in static environments are over. If it was a platformer sure. That's what they have ALWAYS been. I can dig a cheap remake of Mario Bros. But an FPS is a different animal. Its evolved. I can't play an FPS anymore multi-player unless it has destructible environments.
I think its gonna be so cheap because they know with todays culture its popularity will be short lived in the mainstream. Valve isnt selling it cheap because Gabe is such a nice guy. They are selling it cheap because thats all its worth.
