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.

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.

    yeah and if u read up a bit i even said that i think rather made some good points and the effort was in story

  • @ryannumber1gamer said: yeah and if u read up a bit i even said that i think rather made some good points and the effort was in story

    Funny, All I see is terrible grammar 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
    ".(what? F on grammar) And I agree the story was good, but for a VIDEO GAME you dont want to focus on the story too much, or else you would be in the MOVIE buisness.

    yeah but it would be a cool thing on the dvd if they let u watch the entire game like a movie

  • I think the fact that this game even exists as well as the release of the 25th Anniversary Blu-Rays & DVDs prove that the franchise is more 'alive' now than it has been for the past 15 years or so bar the occasional DVD single & package releases (which didn't even start until 2002 anyway). Not to mention the (admittedly limited) re-release at cinemas the first film had last year.

  • @ryannumber1gamer said: yeah but it would be a cool thing on the dvd if they let u watch the entire game like a movie

    That wasnt the point. The point was that games are for gameplay, not storys. If this was meant to be a movie, then it should be a movie, not a game with little gameplay.

  • I can't believe people still dont know about the ignore feature yet. If you hate dashing that much, use it. I don't ignore him because while I disagree with his overall perspective, he is able to back up his posts.

    The fact is that back to the future is still popping up quite a bit; the recent commercial, portal 2, family guy spoofs it a fair amount (i've heard rumblings of having a BTTF spoof like star wars), supernatural has made at least 2 references (main character gets sent back in time and claims he needs a delorean), it's still popular enough that in pop culture a flux capacitor can be referenced without needing to explain and the DeLorean seems almost syonymous with back to the future. Isn't Chrisopher Lloyd voicing a delorean in cars 2?

    So 21 years since the last film it's still not dead in pop culture but as far as continuations go it probably is. We will never get a part IV with MJF's rapidly declining health and Christopher Lloyd far from a leading man. There may be a remake some day. Another video game is likely the only continuation we may see but given the popularity it's rather surprising we are only limited to 3 films, 2 seasons of a TV show, 1 defunct ride, and 1 modern video game... though i guess thats still more than the more popular godfather trilogy.

  • Well seeing as star wars has come up a few times and i think its the most overated thing ever im gonna say, did back to the future get a huge delorean hologram when the 25th anniversary was happening.... no but hey guess what star wars have had a huge light beam come out of the bt tower in london to look like a lightsaber... sorry just had to put that :p
    also people should calm down about generalcabdriver he wasnt being racist or threatining people or anything else so i dont find it fair that he cant get his point across but yet people can say how much they love telltale...


    that is all......... :cool::cool:

  • 8/10 OP. You could've used a little more subtlety, but you managed to get a lot of people. Hell, for a minute I was even planning to type out an actual rebuttal. Well done.

    Oh, and for the record, everybody in this thread is either a troll or being trolled. :p

    Was it an uncredited role? It doesn't show up on his IMDB page and I didn't see the movie.

    To YouTube!
