Back to the future franchise dead?

Hello there telltale forum members I want to make this thread to make a point about something now telltale fans who are here because of sam and max TOMI etc, Shouldnt reply or read futher because I am very sure I am going to anger them with some of the stuff coming up... Now I will get to the point.

Of course most of you have seen back to the future and as good as it is, it seems to be dying out here's why I think that:

1. Films like Lord of the Rings or Star Wars or Jurassic Park have had lots of games whilse Back to the future has not, but when Telltale made the recent one they messed up let me explain my point, The graphics were rubbish and made it look like a kids cartoon more than a game about a film for adults, and even worse is they went and delayed Jurassic park to make it a whole level better, what do Telltale prefer Jurassic park? If they do I dont see a reason to make one game better and on more consoles and better graphics etc and have the other game made cheaply and quickly... Also it seems Telltale prefer using voice actors, for example tom wilson now I know that it wasnt completley there fault but after they learnt tom didnt mind being in the game they still went ahead and got a terrible voice actor which if you read his info on the bttf page he has worked in other games for them so it means they didnt even try doing auditions to find a 'better' Biff Tannen.

Now to extend all this is the point of companys they cant even be botherd to buy the rights to companys like nike or pepsi which was always being shown in the films, also in episode 1 Jcpenny = Jcpennie...WTF, now I know it would of been pointless since it was only there for a few miniutes of the game but still it makes no sense that in the film it's jcpenny and then six monthes later the company turn it into Jcpennie.

2. Lego. Now when I talk about lego I already know why they will not make a Back to the future lego set or game but still it seems unfair that films which are rubbish get a lego back to the future.

3. Blu-ray. Back to the future eventually got released onto Blu-ray but only just, people had to lietrally protest for a blu-ray release while films like star wars get them really easily.

4. It seems everything to do with back to the future is being ripped up thrown out and ripped more, of course im talking about the ride.

I dont see how it is fair that a fantastic film can be so coldley abondoned.
If you have heard a star wars ride has been opened in disneyland, hardly fair!!!



If you still think the back to the future franchise is doing well except from the fact nike made some shoes which look like the ones in part 2. Then I dont know how to convince you that back to the future will be in the dust in another 10-20 years whilse films like avatar (which is overated) or star wars will be still living on with some crappy new tv show which completley erases the point of the films.

  • I think the franchise is far from dead. I went to a showing of the movie at a local theater last Thursday. In the audience, there WERE people who didn't exist at the time Back to the Future came out in 1985. I don't know how many of them were seeing it for the first time, but there were children in there, so I'm sure that at least one person was seeing Back to the Future for the first time. And while some jokes won't work as well anymore, such as Marty trying to order two now defunct sodas, the movie still holds up very well. I believe someone put it very eloquently once: It's somewhat ironic that a movie about time travel has become timeless.

  • There is no point in this because most of the people are fanboys who just want to defend telltale and they cant face the fact telltale suck at making bttf games.

    Like i said they make good games otherwise but bttf wise... Big fat FAIL

    and also people always say that rather dashing is always complaining well he has all the right to complain and his point is perfect.

    Ok fair enought maybe ea would suck as well but still someone like telltale who dont make shitty baby graphics and terrible storylines which lietrally say: 'hey docs explanation about paradoxes were wrong dont worry lets just make a timeline where he doesnt even invent a time machiene'

    NO SEASON 2 I BEG YOU.

    You need to take a breather. We get it; you didn't like the game.

    Inferring that everybody who does like the game are a group of delusional individuals doesn't help your credibility.

    If Season Two does see the light of day, simply don't buy it.

    Problem solved.

    i agree with marty here u and rather dashing need to stop posting everywhere u hate the game we get it u and rather dont got a right to say wat other people need to think about the game

  • Well, Dashing doesn't do that, to a point.

    In any case, Back to the Future the Game has been a financial success and a critical success for the most part, and will be reaching a wider audience soon with retail releases on PS3 and Wii. That doesn't sound like a dead franchise to me.

  • Since I seem to be coming up a lot, I'd like to make it clear that I'm with everyone when it comes to "generalcabdriver45" making poorly-reasoned posts that don't really do much in terms of constructive conversation. I'd hardly like to consider myself "in league" with the person myself, and any sort of imagined affiliation is at best a gross oversimplification of my expressed opinions.

    ok see now the difference between u and rather is rather will stop at a point and his reasons too a point are good ones but urs ain good

  • @ryannumber1gamer said: duteWhats a dush? im not a troll i just dont like it when a person criticsizes everything about a gameWaah his opinion is different than yours it would be different if there was no effort put in the game put telltale like every other game they made did put effort in itWhere is the effort? Not in puzzle design and gameplay, thats for sure.

    Bold. Seriously guys, Rather Dashing is allowed to say what he wants about the game, he did buy it after all, I think he deserves the right to critisize it. Just ignore him, and not post on why you dont like his posts, and PLEASE use propper grammar, the occasional spelling error is fine, but I can barely read some of your posts.

  • I'm in no way attacking Rather Dashing. Personally, I enjoy reading his criticism.

    Unlike generalcabdriver, he doesn't put down those who differ in opinion. Dashing is offering his honest opinion while generalcabdriver is attacking everybody opposed.

    It's more of the fact that generalcabdriver offers little to no reasoning behind his/her posts.
