ok, I'm not an "opinion basher" my any means, and you guys do bring up some good points. so first we'll hit the ones I agree on and then some that I dont necessarily agree on.
First off, the DeLorean... It screams Back to the Future, its like the 3rd main character and pretty much no one would even know what a DeLorean is if it wasnt for the movie, but come on lets just stick a fork in that one, its done... although, just as a kind of respect I think it would be cool to see a DeLorean easter egg or two hidden around or maybe a cameo haha, but I'd like to see where else we can bring the time machine ideas...
Secondly, i agree on how we should have (to vaguely say it) more time travel. 1931, 1986 and back and forth is getting slightly repetitive to say the least, I wish it didnt take till episode five to actually visit the past present and future, but then that almost goes to favor another season or two (haha yeah i said it...) just so we can get to see more years/timelines and such... do it correctly and we can get some of these revelations, developments and timelines we are looking for.
As for the things I don't necessarily agree with:
Setting the game in 1986 vs. Present Day - i would have liked to see present day marty but again, future seasons bring that possibility. they clearly went into this season wanting to push the relationship between doc and marty, and giving us a view into young doc, FCB and of course Original Doc really lets us see in various stages of Doc's life and various timelines, how that relationship grows and falls apart. Like Rather said in the previous post, they had a chance to jump head on into another pivotal relationship in the storyline, whether or not they successfully accomplished that or not, we'll have to wait till episode 5 to find out. but i believe the best way to attempt to fully explore this relationship would be in the past rather than the present or future.
As for deaths and character development, deaths really have never been a part of the BttF franchise, and in my opinion shouldnt really be either. the whole point of the movies was to try making things better and to avoid anything that would alter the future. With the new Edna character and her developments (although everything we learn about her is a development) and young doc's timeline being altered to the point he becomes FCB theres a couple great developments there. not to mention the developments with shoe salesman turned officer parker and punk jennifer... remember again, more seasons = more developments (I hope?)
and lastly for now, and I'm sure I'll catch flak for this one, but Marty not as the playable character? ok, I'm sorry but Marty Mcfly IS back to the future. Having Jules and/or Verne as main playable characters would have been a terrible idea. lets throw two kids in a game which so far, hasn't even involved their mother meeting their father? cant work. maybe in a yet again, future season, but not this story. Plus wasn't BttF the cartoon centered on the Brown Family, mainly Jules and Verne? well we see how well thats gone over in the past... only 2 seasons right? ouch...
I mean in the end guys, ya just gotta take it for what it is... a video game based on a movie. if your a big enough fan of the movies, then just sit back and enjoy 15 more hours of new back to the futureage in season two. If ur not a fan, then thats cool too, ya dont gotta get it. all im sayin is if there were a season two, what suggestions or changes do we think would make it better?
Why are things so heavy in the future? Is there something wrong with the earths gravitational pull??
