So what's the point? Make a season 2 that's exactly the same, I mean do you really want that? There is fan fiction
out there that is much much better and is brilliantly written.
Firstly I didn't see the point of setting the game in the 1980's, right after the events of BTTF 3. That may have made sense 20 years ago, but now? Give me a break.
It just seemed to me that TTG caved in to the fan demands of featuring teenage Marty and the Delorean even though it probably wasn't the best decision from a creative standpoint.
Marty is pretty much a developed character, and there is not much to work with there. The Delorean was destroyed, that particular vehicle's story is over. Sure, Doc can rebuild it, like he did in the Kristen Sheley fanfic. Later on the Delorean also got permanently destroyed and it was replaced with another model from the 2030s.
But coming up with a retarded justification that the car was duplicated when it was hit by lightning just to keep the damn car is insulting.
I don't even see why the game had to have Marty as a playable character at all; they could have used Jules and Verne as the main antagonists, who have grown up with time travel and for whom there are excellent opportunities for development.
Or the story could (should even) have branched out from our present time, and involved puzzles across time periods. Not just alternating between 1986 and 1931.
So unless TTG actually wants to touch on the BTTF universe and make changes they shouldn't even think about a second season.
But if they can make a good story that interacts with the BTTF world and involves time travel as a more central theme, then I'm interested.
-there are no main character deaths in ANY of the films for a reason aside from deaths which get reversed (Doc, george)
-you don't think the whole citizen brown timeline showing how characters would have ended up under different circumstances count as charater revelations?
-so biff and georges fathers are not important revelations about the past? Or Doc as a teenager who was supposed to be a LAWYER?
-you have NO idea whether or not everything will end the way it started.
-teenage marty and delorean were what the fans wanted. Plus an adult marty doesn't work as well as a sidekick. Anyhow the 'present' isn't heavily relevant since it's only shown for 10 minutes aside from alternate timelines. Does it really matter heavily whether we're travelling from 1986 to 1931 or 2011 to 1931?
-seriously Jules and Verne as the main characters? That would be like an indiana jones vehicle with Shai Labeoufs character as the main character instead of Harrison Ford or a Batman vehicle starring alfred. Especially when it's continuing the pattern of peicing the McFly's an Tannes
-time travel wasn't exactly the central theme of part III: there were only 2 time travels and not really huge effects on the timeline. Each of the last 3 epsiodes of the game have been directly centred on the timeline itself.
-telltale did a poll and used the responses the fans wanted. God forbid giving your paying customers what they want. I'll assume you're not self employed because no business is successful by saying "I'll do things the way i want instead of giving the paying customers what they want"
