Uh, if you're referring to Ruins of Myth Drannor, no way that was a remake. It's a revisitation of the gameplay perhaps, yes - but it's not a remake per se, more of a loosely made sequel. Both games even have their own novel.

My feelings on this topic tend to be a little different than most.
I tend to agree in some ways with DArtagnan in part - I find it a little frustrating that more ways aren't being created to evolve existing gameplay dynamics/styles and improve upon the established older classics in particular sub-genres.

One great example of that is the depth of world environment interaction found in Ultima Underworld I+II. Rather than see a remake of these already great games, (ok, I'll admit I'd love to see a sequel too) I'd much prefer a new game attempt to evolve and improve the gameplay found within them.

Diddledy low,
Come brave blood sheep,
You've a goodly way to go.
