Why this is not TTG biggest game...

posted by Everlast on - last edited - Viewed by 807 users

Im impressed some people are hailing this game as TTG's moving to the next level as a small gaming company to the big leagues. I believe that is utterly wrong. I am not saying signing a contract with Universal wasn't a smart move. Although Back To the Future is an iconic movie, to the mainstream gamers is a different story. Here are my reasons why it isn't TTG's biggest games.

3. Good and legendary movies hasnt translated into good and legendary games. Examples are Home Alone, Indiana Jones, Top Gun, ET, etc. All this movies are filled with crappy games, and although TTG has a good reputation of making good games, it can't escape the "lets watch and see how this game turns out". Even people will dismiss it because gaming companies make the big mistake of making a movie a game, without adding a new plot.

2. TTG is getting itself known right now to the mainstream media and gamers more with the signing of Universal. But it isn't in the eye of the gamers as is like companies like Blizzard, Activision, Bethesda.

1. TTG' biggest product is not BTTF but its as of now TOMI. I think that can be seen in the profits they have gained and also in the number of gamers it attracted once it was announced. This is how i got to know of TTG's existence and got me interested in their future games.

I have no doubt Back to the Future will be a great game and is one im looking forward to buy. It does have potential of being a bigger game than TOMI, but right now it's either a hit or a miss. But as we all know the consistency of TTG, i am sure this will be a hit.

    Lol! I knew someone would highlight Fate of Atlantis. ut if you compare the rest of the games, its alot different. That game still stands out today as the best game made by Lucas Arts. Yet people keep hoping they return to the same formula of Fate of Atlantis, and they turned it first at a Laracroft imitation.

    I was just about to say... I brought this in for show and tell in the first grade and everyone loved it. Probably not the most age-appropriate thing now that I think about it...

  • I do not think that this is going to put TTG in the big leagues either but you are kidding yourself if you think that the Monkey Island franchise is bigger than Back to the Future... and or Jurassic Park.

    Im pretty sure this is going to be their best seller.... but no its not going to put a dent in other franchise sales... Nico Bellic is not going to be pointing and clicking anytime soon for example.

    Just kidding. I'm enthusiastic about this game because it's BTTF and it's Telltale. I have no clue if this game will be good or not, just hope. Christopher Lloyd is in it, the developers seems to be bigger fans than me. I think my hope is legitimate.

    It's a good thing if Telltale doesn't go bankrupt, they make games as I like after all, so I'm glad if they earn some money of the games and turn it into a big company, enhance the graphics etc. My only preoccupation about them is that they don't turn too greedy like LucasArts did (personal opinion), and that they go on releasing games that are fun to play.

  • What about the Blade Runner game ?

  • I don't understand why people say Telltale is a small company. I mean yes they don't have as many employees as say Epic or Square Enix, but they have at least 50 people working at their studio. To me a small company implies they have less than 30 people.

    On another topic I'm pretty sure they have enough people buying their games to be doing quite well. Otherwise how have they existed for the last six years, maintained a great track record as far as releasing games on time, and how were they able to procure licenses such as BTTF and Jurassic Park?

    Lastly, there have been quite a few great games based on movies such as the aforementioned Fate of Atlantis. Some other examples include; Super Nintendo Star Wars games, Spider-Man 2, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, and Chronicles of Riddick.

    And I think that's all :D ...

    I said it ^^ , and yes, it's all relative...

  • What about Goldeneye back on the N64? Still regarded as one of the all time greats. The Ghostbusters videogame did a pretty good job of staying true to the movie and there's been quite a few good games based on Star Wars over the years.

    It's easy to rattle off half a dozen bad games based on movies but there's loads of good ones too and I'm in no doubt that Back to the Future will be among them.

    Movie-based games are generally bad because, as tie-in merchandise, they have to be released with the movie, but can't actually start development until the movie's a decent way into production, requiring a very rushed development time. This doesn't apply if the game in question is coming out a significant amount of time longer than the movie it was based on. GoldenEye for the N64 came out two years after GoldenEye the movie, for example. This game is coming out 20 years after BttF3, so I think this isn't an issue. :p

    You're right, BttF won't make Telltale as well-known as the really big game companies, and realistically speaking, they never will be. It's no secret point-and-click adventure games are a niche market. Still, BttF is a big step forward for Telltale, and they're only going to get bigger from here.

    1. TTG' biggest product is not BTTF but its as of now TOMI. I think that can be seen in the profits they have gained and also in the number of gamers it attracted once it was announced. This is how i got to know of TTG's existence and got me interested in their future games.

    Yes, ToMI is arguably Telltale's biggest release so far. Yes, it brought Telltale to a whole bunch of new people's attention. BttF is doing that already without even being released yet, though.

    Also, just because the game introduced you to Telltale personally doesn't make it its biggest game. I mean, I was introduced to them through Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People. And I think most of us got introduced through Sam and Max.
