New Thief's New Garrett Profiled

A feature on GameInformer offers a look at how Garrett is being redesigned for the upcoming revival of the Thief series, showing how Eidos Montréal is re-envisioning the game's protagonist, while being sensitive to fans who may not appreciate too drastic an overhaul. They have a video showing old and new Garrett artwork that features Nicolas Cantin and Steven Gallagher discusses their efforts, drawing comparisons with their work on the Altair character from the Assassins' Creed series.

You sound like my nine year old being offered a new food he's never tried. There's no way to know if it is going to suck. It may be a great game.

If your nine year old turned out to be like that after years of being offered new variations of his most beloved dishes which then turn out to be complete rubbish then this analogy would be a little bit closer to the truth.

You missed the point. The point is that it is foolish to dismiss something as awful when, not only have you never tried it, it doesn't even actually exist yet.

It won't be a new Thief game. I know that, and it is disappointing. I still have Thief Gold and 2, plus tons of fan missions I can replay as often as I like. There is a possibility, though, that this will be a brand new game that may be fun. It may not - I don't know. It doesn't exist yet.

If it sucks, I don't lose anything. I still have the old games, and there are hundreds of games I'm not interested in. Adding one more doesn't hurt me.

If it doesn't suck - guess what? There will be a new series that I might enjoy, if for entirely different reasons than the original Thief games.
