Planescape: Torment - Feature Article @ Diehard GameFan

On the 12th of December 2009 Planescape: Torment had its 10th birthday. Since the game has been re-released to work on modern day systems, questions naturally arise whether Planescape: Torment should be revived in some way - or not.

In a feature article, Planescape: Torment - Sequel, Spin Off, Start Over or Stay Dead?  Editors at the site Diehard GameFan are discussing  just this.  They decided to let the sleeping dogs lie - and let The Nameless One rest in peace:

As happy as I am that the game was re-released to run on modern systems, there's no way in hell I want to see this game being remade as Black Isle Studios is sadly long dead. I also don't want to see a sequel, simply because without Black Isle, there is no way it could measure up. Now, a sequel is possible as The Nameless One would now be fighting in the Blood War, but again, without the original team, a sequel would only sully the good name of the original. A spin-off also isn't that possible because Planescape itself is a spin-off of Advanced Dungeons and Dragons, which no longer exists.

 Do you agree with the statements made by the editors?
