Yep. (Destiny)

To erase parts of the game you don’t want anymore, like Dinklebot or the original mission order?


For some of us, yes. And it's the developers right to do so.


So I guess you are cool with not having an official HD version of the Original Star Wars Trilogy. It's Lucas' right after all.


Honestly? Yes, I’m fine with that. I think it’s sheer idiocy to suggest otherwise. If I paint a masterpiece, put it in galleries all over the world and everyone falls in love with it, it’s still my painting, and I’ll draw little squiggly mustaches all over it if I want to. George Lucas doesn’t owe the world a fucking thing.

Do I wish we had an HD version of the original cut? Sure. But I didn’t make the goddamn movie, so that’s not my choice.

Do I wish I could go play Destiny with Dinklebot? Absolutely! But again, that’s not my choice, and I’m not losing any sleep over it.

The idea that art is somehow the audience’s is absurd unless the artist explicitly states it. An audience is free to interpret, enjoy, hate, etc. art, but it’s not theirs to own. It’s not theirs to dictate how it should be viewed or used.
