Re: Classic Video Games Begging For Tablet Versions
@zerox203- No Nintendo bashing intended. They make great games. They just make lousy selling consoles. I just think when you do one thing well and one thing poorly, find a strategy to do the thing you do well and make money at it.

@Pedro- Bomberman! I loved that game. Not sure it translates for multi-player on tablet, but I'd sure like to see someone try.

Re: Some of my past favorites
@dw_ship- I know cheaper versions of Myst are big onthe tablet. This is a perfect example of where tablet land grabs have meant low quality for existing genres. Hidden Object and Puzzle RPGs like Myst abound. I know of no classic on the tablet though. That probably has to do with the model. I'm not sure how to do freemium hidden object games.

Re: old games
Bilbo31- I have a lot of nostalgia for Quake. I remember when I discovered the lame trick where you sit next to a spawn point with the rocket launcher and shoot people as they appear. They died and you survived and took their stuff. It was lame, but I didn't know it. I was new to the genre. Growth of a newbie. :)
