[Gaming] Licensed Out Of Existence

I can definitely sympathize with the Curmudgeon Gamer's concerns about titles being licensed out of existence.

I was also very fond of the original "Ghostbusters" game, but I remember it from the Atari 800-series machines. The ANTIC-remix of the Ray Parker Jr.'s hit bouncing around in the background with a goofy, chunky backbeat, the fact that they playbalanced so that the $4,800 that the hearse cost was actually an appropriate amount, the multiple strategies people would come up with, the ghost vacuum, the portable containment system...all of it.

Oh,'s a shame.

(On the upside, only four more posts until I get to 500 total...)
