New Monkey Island 2 screens inspire tears of nostalgic joy

Seriously - we could stare at these "old vs new" comparisons all weekend long

Screens like these make me proud to be a gamer.

Even as developers push graphics to the point that they resemble real life, sound to the point that we require surround speakers and level design to the point that we often feel like we're playing through a Hollywood movie, the industry never forgets the classics that came before… and is often willing to update those old games with new technology so that today's generation can enjoy them as well.

Just look at the love and attention that LucasArts has lavished on these enhanced scenes from Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's Revenge.Maybe you don't like point-and-click adventure games, but you have to wish that your favorite last-century title will receive this kind of treatment someday.

Final Fantasy VII fans, are you jealous yet?

I enjoy sunshine, the company of kittens and turning frowns upside down. I am also a fan of sarcasm. Let's be friends!
