What could it mean?
Keeping Sierra On-Line Alive
I know. Can't say. You'll like it
So very, very true.DeadPoolX wrote: Oh and Collector? If Sierra actually does return, and along with it comes remakes/reboots/new titles in their many Adventure series, you can bet this board will become a lot busier.
I hope the new Sierra games are actually the former and aren't so twisted into being 'modern' that they're glorified interactive movies - not because interactive movies are automatically bad, per-say, but because Adventure games and interactive movies are two different genres.DeadPoolX wrote:It'd be so nice to see technologically advanced Adventure games with a good budget, as opposed to the craptastic titles (with a few exceptions) that've littered the genre.
I think the reason they went with the "interactive movie" concept for some titles was because it fit them better. Now whether or not you liked the style is something else, but properties based on films and shows do work as interactive movies.Expack3 wrote:I hope the new Sierra games are actually the former and aren't so twisted into being 'modern' that they're glorified interactive movies - not because interactive movies are automatically bad, per-say, but because Adventure games and interactive movies are two different genres.
I don't think they will. The TellTale games that've done this weren't based on any previous games; movies, TV shows, and comic books, perhaps, but not games. The Monkey Island and Sam & Max series, by TellTale, used a more traditional approach.Expack3 wrote:If I may speculate, the new Sierra, if they do indeed make new Adventure games and/or remakes of classics, will likely try to emulate the TellTale style of Adventure games. That's the most popular right now, and given how major companies these days seem so risk-averse, I'd be surprised if they went retro in terms of mechanics.
Actually, QFG would be one of the last series I'd like to see remade. Not because I disliked them, but because there are so many good and technologically advanced RPGs available already. As good as QFG is, there's no way it could compete against something like Dragon Age: Inquisition, or even slightly older games, like Skyrim.Expack3 wrote:Also, while we're dreaming of what could be coming, I'd still like to see a fully-3D series of Quest for Glory remakes with the hero's abilities and combat properly and sensibly expanded to utilize the third dimension.
