Reboot of 2600 game, with mixed results.
News came from Atari that they are remaking the Atari 2600 Haunted House, for the Wii, Xbox live arcade, and the PC. Haunted House was one of the first games to pioneer the suvival horror genre. The orginal game a bit dated by todays standards, the updated version of thea game will be a scary romp the whole family can enjoy. Yes another family romp through a childish horror game, I thought Grabbed by the Ghoules was enough never to bring this crap back.
Should we even reamke games anymore? Should we reboot or just let our memories serve us well and keep the past in the past? Do the remakes and reboots that come to market worth the time and effort put into them? What if any games would you like to see remade or revamped?
Here is a picture of the 2600 game
Here’s the new one due out this fall.
