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 Montrťal 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.

Ok, I give them the benefit of the doubt - and so should all of you - after Ass Creed and DXHR. However, I agree, that video did nothing to reassure me. In fact, it set my teeth on edge. The designer being both too young - and french - clearly doesn't seem to get why people love Garret and Thief. Whatever changes Batman has been through at his core he's still the Batman. You don't need to reinvent him and you don't need to reinvent Garret. So, in short, this game has gone from top of my list to a now reserved status. Le sigh.
I feel like a father who finds out his kids love the newer Star Wars episodes more than the original trilogy. Then is horrified to realize all their friends agree. More action, better special effects - and more Jar Jar! Just like I feel every time I read a young gamer who says Thief Deadly Shadows was better than the originals and Deus Ex Human Revolution was way better than the first one on account of how ugly it was. It's a losing battle, man. Just step back and cherish your memories.
