Guest Author's Note: "What some ponies will do for a free skill level.

Some of the ideas from mainframe-and-terminal computing that the original Tron movie touched on, were (much) later reinvented as 'cloud computing'. (If you've never seen the original Tron movie but have seen the sequel, the cartoon series, or the games, the original - for all its simpler graphics - is arguably better.)"

Agreed, though I still wish they'd release Tron Uprising on DVD, anyway.

Yeah, I didn't get to see Uprising on it's original airing and would glad seek the DVDs if they existed.

The franchise unfortunately seems to have a case of mixed rights and mixed release authorities, where the parties involved are just turtling instead of negotiating. Too bad: it's iconic enough that it's even made it into Kingdom Hearts.

Glad I saw it in theaters, even though I never saw the original. It's an ok movie, from what I remember.

So a Pegasus form of Tron.
I wonder who the MCP will be played as.

Originals are almost always better than their sequels. The only exception I can think of is the original Stargate movie versus Startgate SG1. The spin-off series follow the rule, though.

I'd also note Mega Man II vs. the original. Or the second Star Trek movie vs. the first.

But this case does not appear to be a counterexample.

I enjoyed Terminator 2 much more than the first one. Same with Toy Story 2.

Second original Star Trek movie too. Wrath of Khan is on a league of its own.

Second Kelvin timeline movie though...

Let's add another to this pile: Street Fighter 2 vs 1. There are reasons people might as well assume the series started on game 2 and there wasn't a 1.

I really liked the video game Tron 2.0. A worthy addition to the franchise, and a fun shooter to boot.
One nifty aspect is that your skills and abilites take up processing power, of which you only have so much. Varies by level, but sometimes you have to decide if you need to bring the sniper rifle along. One level in particular is set inside a cramped PDA. You're the only program running. It's a SMALL level.. but surprisingly complex.

I grew up on the original Tron and I still love it the best. Glad to know I'm not the only one!
