What is Thief really about?


Recommended Posts

I just remembered that in Deus Ex the storyline was hugely important to me.

Not only was it thrilling, it was, besides gameplay, a very significant motivator for playing.

A lot of conversations and readables had interesting philosophical content, which got me hooked even more.


Deus Ex without storyline and it's spots of philosophy would have been more than 50% less interesting, to me at least.

Realism is not important. Believability (with some generous allowances for suspension of disbelief) is important if you want the game to be immersive; however this can be achieved regardless of how "real" the game is.


Racing games can be decent fun. I suck at them, but I still enjoy them (when I use the easiest car and practice a lot). :P

My games | Public Service Announcement: TDM is not set in the Thief universe. The city in which it takes place is not the City from Thief. The player character is not called Garrett. Any person who contradicts these facts will be subjected to disapproving stares.

Lander is the best racing game ever. It consists of constantly crashing your ship into walls at slow speeds, hoping you won't run out of fuel.

Too late to save us but try to understand

The seas were empty -- there was hunger in the land

We let the madmen write the golden rules

We were just Children of the Moon

We're lost in the middle of a hopeless world

Children, Children of the Moon watch the world go by

Children, Children of the Moon are hiding from the Sun and the Sky

      Anyone have any luck with light.setShader( string ) ? It seems to make whichever light you apply it to full-bright on the initial invoke?

      I'm starting to think we need another mapping contest.

      Don't you hate it when there's a quality discussion on a forum somewhere online about something, but then two disagreeing users derail and transform it into a back-and-forth poo slinging competition at one another?

      After watching the first three and a half episodes of "The Sandman" last night, I realize once again that overly imaginative narratives are not for me. Also, the main actor looks like he has a toothache.
      Which makes me wonder, is there a Dark Mod mission with a medieval dentist?
