Dr. Harding ≠ Dr. Harding ?

So, did I figured this out correctly? The only character we met originated from the films is Dr. Harding, but why does he look so differently then?

    :p:p

    Well, age tends to do that, that was kind of mean. The new look is appealing I'm sure, but every time I see Harding, I forget who it is, until I see the name tag, and then I'm like, "Oh yeah, that's not an entirely new character, he was in the film."

    Yes, because I was SO obviously being serious...

  • Harding was such a minor character in the film, that this change doesn't bother me. It would be different if they revamped one of the leads like Hammond or Malcolm. This version of Harding actually seems closer to how I imagined him in the novel, where he had a much larger role, so it's nice to see that depiction of the character brought to life, so to speak.

    It's a genius move by Telltale to explore a minor character like Harding as the hero for the game, rather than just retrace the footsteps of Grant and the main characters again. In the movie, once the action starts we pretty much stick with the main core of characters to the end, and everyone else is just sent home and not heard of again. But each of them has their own exciting story about what went down in the Park that night too, so it's nice to see what was happening "meanwhile, elsewhere on the island..." as well.

    I agree. The other characters have played their roles and their stories have been told. As much as I like Grant and Malcome, bringing them back over and over kind of burns out the franchise. I love the idea of seeing what happens were nobody looked before.

  • Now let me start this by saying, that as a major gamer and a HUGE Jurassic Park fan, I can't wait to play this game. Also, kudos to Telltale for being the first developer I've ever seen that actually pays attention to the community and works to keep their work cannon. With that I mind I just had to point out, the character Gerry Harding in the game doesn't look or sound anything like the guy who portrayed him in Jurassic Park.

    It was originally created as a separate thread, I merged it up into the existing discussion.

  • Ach!

    But you Americanos look all the same!
    What's the problem? Couldn't Dr Harding had shaved himself at the end of the day?

    For he looks the same...
