View Full Version : Purely Hypothetical...

03-13-2006, 04:42 PM
The question is pretty simple. Just imagine - keeping in mind that this is completely hypothetical and unlikely - that Obsidian and LA announced that they would release a FPS Jedi Knight like version of The Sith Lords, with real time combat and all that stuff. Would you like it? Would there be anything you would want to change for that type of game?

And for all you people out there who don't really care for button-mashing games: shoo! Nothing here for you. :D

Hey! As much as as I've said I don't have a preference for button mashing games, I wouldn't mind simply because it is KOTOR we are talking about. I've played some FPS games and I've enjoyed them because it is a genre I liked. I would get it anyway because it's KOTOR.

Wait, what are asking? Please, reaffirm that question. Are you asking, that if someone made a KOTOR series independent squel made for the Jedi Knight series? Or a game that is a part of the KOTOR series made in the style of the Jedi Knight series?

Perhaps you need to read my post again. I said "FPS Jedi Knight-like" game made out of TSL. In otherwords, basically TSL remade as a different game genre. Hypothetically.

Then that's a good idea. But how would it work?

Nah. I've already played TSL, I don't think I would spend money to play it again, albeit a different way.

I would think it would be a bit of a hybrid between the two genres; you could still select people and talk to them, open containers, etc., but you would control your character in combat like the JK system.

I personally think it would be really cool, I love interacting with the envioroment and other people and having a party, but the selecting your attack and waiting for it to be carried out gets annoying after a while.

Nope. I prefer my Kotor just the way it is. I hate having my character die just because I can't hit the right buttons fast enough. :D

No. I prefer the way it works in KotOR, the fact that you have to plan your attacks. That would also mean no more party managing.

I'd love to see a JK series-esque game based in the KOTOR/TSL era. But I don't want to lose the RPG series in the process.

I agree. The JK series is now in a time-span that's already written. The Academy vs The Yuuzhan VOng. We already know what will happen, there's no space to improvice.

Kotor 1 showed us it is possible to make a coll story about a know era. The used excisting stuff (Exar Kun. Quel-Droma) and made it into a new story.
They shouldn't give up on JK, but simply change their course ^^

If kotor would go FPS, they would compete against themselves (the JK series) and i don't think that's wise. At this moment, they have a succesful RPG (Kotor) FPS (JK) and RTS (EMpire at War). They will keep it that way ;)

Basically what Prime said, based in that era of the SW timeline, but not directly relating to TSL or KoTOR.

If it's Starwars, I'll play it.

I may not like it as much, but I'd, open-mindedly, experience it just the same.

Well, I still think a rpg would be better.

But as a spin-off, a JA style game can be fun, or better yet, a single player mode like RC.
