Bard's Tale tit for tat at IGN

Big interview with Brian Fargo over at IGN about Bard's Tale. Damned thing is four pages long, in fact. Anyway, here's one of them:

IGN: Why did you decide to revisit this franchise?

Brian Fargo:
The Bard's Tale was my first real big RPG hit so it seemed appropriate to launch inXile around a game by the same name. I have a long history with RPGs, having produced or been involved with everything from Bard's Tale, Wasteland, Fallout and Baldur's Gate. I was anxious to get back to my roots and work on another RPG. There is also a significant fan base out there, excited for a revival of the property, so it seemed like the perfect vehicle for inXile to make a cutting edge RPG title.

I dunno, I'd say something more like a remake of Bard's Tale Construction Set would have been a better way to do it than an action CRPG that automates item selling. I would have settled for a two word answer over that answer, NAME RECOGNITION.
