Typical from someone who never really played the classics. The original Thief games were far more expansive, versatile, and unique in just about every way. AI was even more unpredictable back then and the originals had more gameplay features.
What makes the new one better? All they did was take away good things, scale it down, and not add anything back except graphics. It's good for casuals, sure. Good for more hardcore, more demanding gamers? Good for people who want a more diverse challenge that involves thinking, for those who want more complex gameplay, for those who want more tools and more ways to complete objectives, for those who want freedom within the game world, and for those who want a longer lasting game? The new one is a disappointment for these people, it's not even up for debate that Thief does less for such people and caters more to modern day casuals, just like 99% of the games/sequels today. Anyone who thinks otherwise is truly blind and delusional, and is not accepting Thief for the lesser game that it is (contrary to what they claim).
So you launched Thief Gold and couldn't deal with the graphics, so it's a worse game lol. Thief Gold was made for PC gamers who have high standards and want a challenge, the new Thief is designed for teenage console gamers. Every redesigned/removed gameplay aspect and the miniaturized scale make this blatantly obvious.Edited by boredgunner - 3/3/14 at 10:41am
