Anticipation/Doubt

posted by Rather Dashing on - last edited - Viewed by 557 users

This thread mostly exists for the poll, that is, I want to sort of gauge general opinion, given the lack of information we have.


How do you feel about the upcoming King's Quest game?


-----
Excited: I'm extremely excited, and I'm certain that Telltale will make something that at the very least borders on perfection. I love that Telltale has the franchise, and I can't wait to see what they have in store!

Cautiously Optimistic: I'm not really sure they'll do a good job, but I expect them to.

Unsure: I'm really mixed on the whole thing or have no real opinion yet.

Pessimistic: I don't really expect them to do a good job, and need convincing.

Upset: Angry or otherwise unhappy that Telltale got the license. I'm almost certain that Telltale can't or doesn't want to deliver something that meets or exceeds my expectations for a King's Quest game. I do not like the idea of this at all.

I'm on the "Upset" category, and if anyone thinks my wording or the poll are in any way unfair or biased, please let me know. I tried to balance it out as well as I could, without directly insulting any responses. I understand that I'm probably an outlier, and the majority of people probably exist somewhere in the middle three options. "Upset" and "Excited" don't necessarily mean you CAN'T be convinced otherwise(though this may be the case), but that you at least are going to need some heavy persuasion to the contrary.

    I just found it amusing, is all. No accusations here. ;)

    Did you change my poll so the results weren't public? :confused:

    I still see the results at the top of both pages of the thread, maybe you just hit a random glitch?

    He means you can't see who voted for what by clicking on the numbers anymore.

    Probably did it so the rest of the team can dump votes into excited and skew the results.

  • A great conspiracy theory, but it doesn't exactly add up. I'm pretty sure that's the number of votes we had in the category when it was public. =P

  • I can see being pessimistic about it, sure, but upset about it? What's to be upset about? If it's good, it's good. If it sucks, well, King's Quest already ended on a low note anyway.

    Or was it?

  • @MusicallyInspired said: I keep waving back and forth between Pessimistic and Upset. I've not gone past Pessimistic, though, and I won't until I play the demo and see for myself. If the demo doesn't impress me, or worse if it depresses me, the whole thing will be a write-off for me. I'll just go about my daily life as if it never happened and not even acknowledge it. I'll consider it a bad fangame that's worth completely ignoring. I'll choose 'pessimistic' for now. But I'll probably end up 'upset' again in the future.

    I will not pay money and support Telltale's rape of the KQ legacy if that's what it turns out to be. On the other hand, if it turns out great I'll be too happy to pay. But it's gotta be really really great.



    Basically, you ain't gonna like it unless it's better than KQ6 which it wouldn't be even if Jane or Roberta were writing the plot. You're setting it up to an unrealistic standard which you logically know it can't reach in order to justify hating it, because you've been bitter and biased from the beginning because your team didn't get picked. Jealousy is such, such an ugly thing.

    In your opinion.

    Dude. You need to just stop with the fan team jealousy thing.

    It is NOT the reason why many of us are worried about what Telltale might do with the license. In fact, most of the people who have expressed concern about the game have nothing to do with any of the fan teams.

    And as far as MusicallyInspired goes, quit badgering him. There is only ONE PERSON at AGDI that expressed anything even remotely resembling jealousy over Telltale getting the license, and it WASN'T HIM, it was AGC2. MusicallyInspired's concerns about Telltale's handling of King's Quest are valid and based on existing evidence (Telltale's current games), just like yours are about TSL. Your constant pestering of him really comes off as hypocritical, given the your own stance on TSL (which I'm not necessarily disagreeing with, as you know.)

    MI has also repeatedly said he's going to wait and see with this game, and try it before making any decisions--but that he won't pay for it if it sucks. It's a reasonable, logical way to approach it, and your allegations against him are totally unfounded.
