BT1 was the best PC game of my youth. I want more of that. Please build a game in this world that echoes the greatness of the first game. Yes I bought and beat 2 and 3 but they were a shadow of the greatness of 1. Does anybody real LOVE 2 and 3?
I'd love to see a ton of skara brea. Throwbacks to 1.
Haven't seen anyone really stand up and declare that they like 2 the best, but I think the people that like 3 the best might outnumber those of us who like 1 the best. But, given what inXile has shown thus far, I think it is probably a good idea if the people in both camps stick together and fight for the soul of the game.
I personally love BT1 the best. What I think would have been neat is if inXile had either chosen to do one of the following:
- Remake BT1, maybe adding a couple of a new dungeons (have the statues by the Kiosk Temple guard an entrance to one; maybe another level in Kylearan's tower; maybe a haunted cellar for another tavern), maybe "reinterpreting" the layouts of the existing dungeons so to render old maps null and void.
- Make a prequel that explored how Tarjan came to be locked away in stone.

And, of course, use higher quality graphics and sound and streamline the user experience, in either case.
But, at this point, it is purely wishful thinking. We'll be lucky to get anything that has more to do with the original series than just the "Bard's Tale" name.
