Why has LucasArts not seen fit to release its old games digitally? On Steam, other developers have had a great deal of luck with releasing their products, and I can't imagine how many people would want to play the old Indy games or the Day of the Tentacle, or the Dark Forces Series, but can't because its next to impossible to find a copy anymore, and even if they find a copy, there is no guarantee they will get it to run. An entire generation is missing out on the good old Lucasarts adventure games. I imagine that with a little tweaking to make them stable and runnable in windows, they could be surprise sellers, and with a low risk opposed to re-releasing these games on store shelves.

That is a good question, I would definitely be interested in playing the older games that I missed out on, and its not like LucasArts to pass up a chance at making an extra buck ;)
