As I said in this
thread, I'd like to make Year 3 more interactive and insert more characters you could talk to. While the whole Manny/Meche angle in the third year was interesting, that year failed to touch me emotionally in the same way the other years did.
And I agree with you about Nick! I guess he deserved it, but damn, he was so cool. When I saw him in the train I thought he'd play a big part in Year 4 and was SO disappointed when he went down with the train.
