A fan could appreciate something for what it was and not need to see it repeated a second time. That fan could want to try something that had never been done before -- like a first-person, real-time game in the Fallout milieu -- without wishing the original had taken that tack. I'm speaking hypothetically, since I fucking hated the mechanics of the first two games, but the idea that "a fan of something" must want to see that thing rehashed over and over is not necessarily the case.
Statues wouldn't be better if they could move. Model airplanes would not be better if they were the same size as airplanes.
