The market share for the kind of low tech/high testosterone 80s and early 90s action movies that Willis, Ah-nold, and Sly made a living off back in the day has been shrinking for a while now. Modern (read: mostly younger) audiences like a little more polish and gleam with their mayhem. Trying to broaden the audience for Die Hard is the only way the series had any chance of surviving.
The close-minded insular thinking of fandom is really something to behold. They'd rather the things they love court extinction than let uncool "outsiders" have a shot at enjoying them too.

I think it was a ballsy choice to go with Jai Courtney as Jack McClane - outside of Spartacus, he's pretty much an unknown so he must have been really impressive in the casting process

Sucks 200 character limit.
I watched Live Free or Die Hard unrated, and honestly I don't think it was better than the PG 13 version. The jokes and timing were better, IMO. And it wasn't as if it was all child's talk, either.
