Why are sequels and remakes hates in the gaming community? 'Thief' may have the answer.
They're not And you're confusing reboot with remake
You're completely right, Thief 2014 was not at all a remake. The author even writes rebooted Thief in the last paragraph, but writes remake earlier. If you want to write a series of articles, get your wording straight.
If it was a remake, people would have gobbled it up. But it was a reboot made for plebs, of course it's gonna be shit.
Bad remakes are hated. Good ones aren't. And if people are sceptical about yet-to-be-released remakes and reboots it's because remakes and reboots have a reputation for being bad. Good ones are certainly possible, and they do exist, but it's hard to get excited when so many of them are bad.
Probably because the devs change so much of what was loved about the original when they do a remake.
Thief could have been better if it was more open and sandboxy. But it felt like a very linear experience. The next Thief should be more focused on player choice
here's an interesting video on the topic: https://www.youtube.com/wat... Even though I disagree with some of the points brought up in the video it's definitely worth watching. It showcases how game- and level-design are being dumbed down in a some AAA games nowadays to make them more accessible.
They are not, people love them, provided they don't screw it up.
The first Thief was so good, a true stealth game. It has an atmosphere in that game which in many stealth games which came afterwards remains unmatched. I remember if you got seen in that game, chances are you'd lose a hand to hand brawl, so restart from the last save point. The new one had none of this.
Are you serious? Because they are low efforts. I cannot afford to produce low efforts in my job otherwise I'll get fired, the same should apply to people who are after our money. But most gamers seem to not be able to make this thought-arc. If everybody and their mother keeps buying these reheats, they will not be forced to develop something worth the while. People are falling for nostalgia all the time. Sad.
