Says the guy who went over many of my points, disregarded the examples provided, and called my analogy inapt, despite the idea behind it being easy to grasp. Because it doesn't put that game in the light you want it to be. So spare me the "avoiding it like the plague" crap.
I tried my best to fully address your post. If you think I didn't, feel free to point out any point you think I didn't address. I will be happy to do so. I explained why your analogy is inapt. Arguing that we should use a term in a specific way in this context by pointing to another context where that term is never used just doesn't make sense at all. Statues are either restored or reproduced, not remade or remastered. We use completely different terminology.
Your argument is that we should call a type of videogame a remake because if a statue was made in the same way, we'd call that a remake. But we don't call a statute made in that way a remake, so the analogy doesn't work. If I'm misunderstanding you, correct me.Last edited by JWeinCom - on 07 May 2020
