No, it doesn't suck to be a Sierra fan. Many of us have gone through and saw the end of the "glory days" and we have a heck of a lot of games from Sierra which gave us all immense happiness. If only three or four games were released and then they shut down adventures, yeah that would suck. But we have so much that Sierra gave us. So much variety. Like I said, we've since accepted it and made our peace with it. The fangames that were made were nice bonuses of a lost era as well. But now some of the Sierra designers are coming back and that's even more incredible! I, for one, don't really recall any disappointments. It's not like games were coming and then canceled that we were terribly looking forward to. SQ7 wasn't even an adventure game. Sure the fangame shut down and that sucks, but hey. We have 6 whole Space Quest adventures plus four or five mostly excellent fangames.
No, it's a great time to be a Sierra fan. It doesn't matter what the rest of the industry thinks about it. I personally do not care. I don't even care if ActiVision takes notice or not. I'm just glad to see these old celebrated adventure creators back in the business again, for however long it may be. It's more than we could ever have hoped for. I've got to say, I'm more excited about the new IPs these old designers are wanting to create than the remakes or sequels they may or may not have planned. I'm happy to see games in a style we love and used to get all the time coming back again.
