So bored...

Picked up Back To The Future and already bored. New presentation, samey mechanics, samey humour (i.e. soothing but never bites).

For how much longer can Telltale flog this horse? Cos it's now dying.

Telltale desperately needs to offer at least one adult-orientated franchise i.e. rated 18+, and not hold back on the humour or gore, as the original Sam 'n Max did i.e. Lucasarts' one.

Sorry guys and girls, but Telltale is becoming a stale gig. And they need to start listening to some fans like myself even if we're not in the majority.

  • TTG does NOT need to offer a mature only title... there are plenty of other companies that do that... TTG offers their style of game to a niche community more than happy to pay for that kind of game.

    Your argument is like saying just because there is porn, Disney needs to make a princess porn movie because this cartoon shenanigans is getting old... Its what they do dude... you do not have to buy it... go to Rockstars forum....

  • Yeah granted this wasnt telltales best episode, but I still like it.
    Next you want nintendo to change mario into a first person shooter because its the same old platforming.

    Come to think of it a mario fps would be interesting.

  • As expected - a stock standard reply from your stock standard Telltale fan.

    You've missed my point completely - even without adult humour, the fact is the BTTF is any other Telltale game but in new drag.

    And it's getting pretty boring.

    My point about adult humour is that Lucasarts' original Sam 'n Max was decidedly adult oriented.

    And for your information Disney is now producing adult-oriented movies.

  • If I missed your point its because you didn't explain it clearly without sounding like a typical FPS fan meathead.

    1.But in new drag. Because its the same humor?
    2.I see where you are going but telltale really doesnt need to add more adult humor to make it different. They just go with the humor of whatever they are doing. So far most of their stuff has with the exception of sam and max where the humor changes a bit through the comics, the game, and the show.
    3.Disney is making adult movies. Since when.

  • I play Mass Effect, Dragon Age, Myst, Starcraft and Monkey Island and this makes me a 'typical FPS fan meathead'? Well done, well done. Clap clap clap.

    As I said - typical response from a typical Telltale fan.

  • This thread may be percieved as being very human, and also perhaps entertaining. Actually, honestly, how it may be percieved, what was your intent OP? I believe you may have reaped what you (are)sowe. (ing)

    It got the same age rating as the telltale games. Over here, at least.

  • Seriously though if you do not like what TTG is doing you do not need to buy their games.... that is what I do ... I have no interest in the TTG CSI games so I have not bought them... but I do not go into the CSI boards and demand they add humorous pirates and dogs in suits because that is what I like... It is what it is... I am sorry its not to your taste.

    Yes, well, it didn't have explicit language and had *slight* and *occasional* gore if you remember playing it.

    My point is Telltale would not have probably published the game in that form if it were released today - and that's a shame.
