Comment Pre-1952? (Score 5, Insightful) 100

So why no reports from before 1952? Roswell incident occurred in 1947.

Wouldn't some of these fan made games get people interested in some of the originals again? You get enough people into a forgotten series who start asking for more and in turn the rights holder makes a new game of their own in the end with a healthy profit hopefully. Yes, I know... big business doesn't understand this type of thing.
