So, weird thing, but most people in this forum are quite knowledgeable of gaming terms. However, I'm noticing something weird recently with the professional media outlets - including IGN and even Gamespot, and general gaming population. They keep saying remakes are remasters, which we know is not the case. However, this is happening a lot within the past couple of weeks with both Tony Hawk and Mafia which are full blown remakes, being called such.
Do you think maybe publishers are doing this as a way to pass remasters as remakes, hence less knowledgeable sectors of the market confuse them when making their purchases? Of course, the media and their payola, especially Gamespot (Kand and Lynch) will take the bait.
