Telltale = Lucasarts ?

posted by Bloody Eugene on - last edited - Viewed by 517 users

I know... it might be a little difficult to compare Telltale and Lucasarts...

but I think that now no Company other than Telltale can hold the Lucasart's heritage.

And to me Telltale is one of the most important Adventures Companies among Lucasarts and Sierra. We waited another true Adventure Company almost 10 years now...I'm happy that Telltale was born.

I think that their games will be remembered among the classics.

What do you think?

  • Well, I'll put it like this: 20 Years from now, it will be a future where A. Telltale is still a small scale company with a quite large program, with weekly episode releases of different shows or B. It will be a megacorparation like EA, where many craptacular studios release things for the sake of releasing them, with massive ammounts of product disgracing the name of this great company.

    I'd much rather have A. I mean, look at they're improvement. Every year they've been getting series out quicker and quicker, and in 20 more years, it will be near weekly overlapping releases.

    Are you talking about the PAST EA or the PRESENT EA.
    Because EA seriously has changed. Brütal Legend is only one example where they took the risk of trying something new.

    I mean just like a general giant company, EA or Activision or whatever. You get the drift.

    I chose A, for Abe: Telltale is still a small scale company with a quite large program, with weekly episode releases of different shows
    : How romantic, but you're still WRONG!

    I chose B: it will be a megacorparation like EA, where many craptacular studios release things for the sake of releasing them, with massive ammounts of product disgracing the name of this great company.

    I like a man with conviction, but WRONG!


    The answer is D!.. D!
    [A glorious footnote on gamining history since Telltale was swallowed by your friendly neighborly Shambling Corporate Presence (Like EA)]
    Of course you did dear, but you're WRONG! (We hope)


    I chose C: Telltale is a larger company, churning out quality games without loosing the way it is now

    You're wrong, wait, what happened?

    This is very clever, but I am just saying my ways are the most likely ways for the company to go.

    I hope for C, that's for sure but I won't be surprised if something bad happens like
    "LucasArt: Telltale, you shall become a part of a bigger whole"
    or
    "CNN Money: Telltale Games filed for bankrupcy after a segue of bad adventure games, which left the company without cash or supporters. A former employee - who wished to remain anonynous - said that he was shocked, but somehow after Blades Of Stenchtar XVII he sensed something was wrong. Around 300 employees, ..."

  • Then a handful of disgruntled former Telltale employees will go off and start their own company and....waaaaituhminute...

  • I don't care which option happens in the next 20 years as long as we keep getting quality adventure games (and Monkey Island sequels!).

    I wouldn't say that, Present EA are much better than they were say 5 to 6 years ago, you say Brutal Legend was the one example of trying something new, what about Mirrors Edge, SKATE, etc. Also EA seem pretty ok with studios these days, they pretty much let Criterion do what they want, obviously were ok with Double Fine, and Harmonix have admitted they get along good with EA and get more pressure from Viacom if anything.
