HoMM 2 and 1 are just as good as you see what the next ones in the line did and they seem more streamlined.
I started a thread 4 or 5 years back about looking to old games for inspiration as they weren't tied down to such hard and same gaming concepts. HoMM was an update of King's Bounty and Pirates! is the latest installment of well..Pirates!
I would love to see updated Seven Cities of Gold for example.
But your article reminds me of the launch Fallout 3 when we heard many stories of elderly gamers forcing young ones to put up with the very primitive Fallout 1 and 2 and finding in them fellow afficianados and missionaries for what game design should be.
