I blame Mark Asher

From GeRYK’s review of Space HoRSE on GameSpot

It’s the most boring of gaming clichés to wish that some company would just redo some old classic game with updated graphics, but that doesn’t stop gamers from saying it all the time. This is often followed by the observation that in the old days of gaming, “it was all about the gameplay.” Unfortunately, they usually can’t test these hypotheses on the spot, so after a round of vigorous nods and an uncomfortable pause, these gamers move on to other topics of conversation. With the release of Gilligames’ budget-priced title Space HoRSE, this old gaming cliché can finally be tested scientifically.
