Yeah, that's true. There have been a number of new side-scrollers
coming out of late. I think a lot of it has to do wwith the nostalgia
factor of these games.
For instance, I myself use to play Megaman etc rather heavily until I
lost my vision. Now, that I'm older, a parent, etc I'd love to pass on
those same kinds of games to my kids. When I go out and buy a PS III
or an XBox 360 I want to have games equal to what I played on my NES
or Super NES back in the day as well as any new games that came out.
These remakes and new side-scrollers help bridge that gap.
Not only that we need a wider variety of family friendly games. I've
noticed a trend towards teen and mature rated games which are fine for
people in those age groups, but my son is only 6. I like to find games
more age appropriate for him. Somethinglike Megaman is more age
appropriate for him than Grand Theft Auto or MK 9 in my opinion.
