Agree, time does temper our memories. I reread Drangonlance Chronicles and Legends a few years back (I'm late 30's now), and loved it as much as I did back in the mid 80's as a kid. But I read the Legend of Huma and didn't enjoy it near as much. In games, I've noticed the same thing. Just replayed Worlds of Ultima: Savage Empire. I loved that as a kid, but while I enjoyed it for a bit, I realize now how shallow and hollow it was compared to the actual Ultimas.
