I have linked once to a quote showing abject disdain
for Sierra's design philosophy. If anyone wants, I can compile a list of quotes from both Telltale and Sierra that will show that the two companies think COMPLETELY DIFFERENTLY, that Telltale has NO INTENTION of even ATTEMPTING to think the way Sierra does, and that the overwhelmingly powerful probability for the upcoming King's Quest reboot is that it will be a King's Quest game in name only, with all of the similarities being entirely superficial.

Different to the point of being designed from a diametrically opposed philosophy of design isn't "different", it's a process that will create something with nothing but a surface resemblance to the thing they are ostensibly attempting to emulate. The company is run by people that abhor
the means, thought process, and artistic direction through which the King's Quest series was made. I would be less upset if Activision gave exclusive rights to fucking Zynga
. And another thing: I am sick of this assumption that comes up everywhere
that because I am not at all pleased with something, that I am not a fan
or that I don't really care
about a particular franchise. Maybe I care about the franchise enough to prefer that the very basic surface view of the thing isn't ripped out and pasted over something with disparate internals. Maybe my disdain for the upcoming game is based on EVEN MORE evidence than your fucking praise, considering MY reaction is based on precedent, interview responses, and an analysis of every product ever released by this company up to this point, while yours is based on empty optimism. MAYBE fans who will take anything that has the name on it, without caring about whether or not the spirit of the original product is actually respected, rather than treated as a piece of garbage that must be discarded
because people are busy now
when nobody was busy in the 80s, maybe THOSE people are letting blind fanboyism to cloud or replace their judgement. But hey, that's not what I'm here to argue, because I'm not here to punch straw men. I'm here to say this is a bad idea
, and if you're not willing to bring anything concrete or valuable to the table in terms of a counterargument rather than slandering me because that's all you have in terms of reasoning, then FUCK YOU
