Knights of the Old Republic still holds up in terms of fun and story, but it definitely feels dated now. I just replayed it a year or two ago and it was still great fun but it definitely shows its age, similarly to how something like the original Final Fantasy feels playing it today. It's clunky and ugly. I wonder how different the remake will be, if it will be an entirely different experience like FF7 Remake or the Resident Evil 2 and 3 remakes, or if it will just be a better looking more modernized version of essentially the exact same game, like Tony Hawk's Pro Skater. Either way, I can't wait for it!

Started playing Knights of the Old Republic again for the first time in over ten years. I got pretty far when it was new but I never actually finished it. It's pretty fun! Maybe too much talking though. A lot of the game is just watching/listening to people talking to the screen like it's The Office. I like the lore and I'm definitely into it but actual gameplay wise it's not the greatest. I don't love western RPGs in general. JRPGs are where it's at.

this was what I thought of KOTOR the last time I played it. Yeah, I still mostly agree with this. I was really into it for the story but gameplay wasn't the greatest. So I kind of hope it gets more of an overhaul than just good graphics.

I always liked Jedi Outcast better than Kotor.  Especially the online multiplayer.  Idk if anyone knows about Power Battles, but it was a full online mod for Jedi Outcast and Kotor that was the best online experience I think I've ever played. It was like halo online, but for star wars, but fully customizable and great team battle gameplay although difficult.

Just finished A Way Out.  Damn, that was the best co up game in a while I've played.  It's narrative heavy but you really do get drawn in and it's a blast at much of of the action/camera trick sequences.  It really felt more like a good movie you got to interact with. Ending got me.

My favourite Star Wars games are KOTOR, Battlefront 2 (older one), and Republic Commando.

I haven’t played a lot of the other good ones like Galaxies, Fallen Order, Squadrons, the Force Awakens, or Emperor at War.

 

 

Man star wars games are such a past time for me might just be a thread of its own. There's so many good games.

Here's my rankings of ones I can remember enough of.

Jedi Knight/Jedi Academy and Battlefront 2 were by far the most memorable and hours played.  Power Battles is underrated, one of the best co-ops I've ever played.

Ep. 3 was pretty solid actually, shadows of the empire was great for the old school games and didn't play enough KOTOR to fanboy out over it.

I bought a Wii u the other day so expect Zelda HD and XBCX to be announced for the switch any day now.

The Wii U is underrated I think. Though Nintendo did pretty much ignore it. No original Zelda game, no regular 3D Mario game, no Metroid, no Animal Crossing. It’s their own fault. But I still had fun with the system!

I hope the KOTOR remake is a top to bottom makeover, not just better graphics.

Like Cheerios said, it feels a bit dated now. Not sure graphics alone would fix that.

Is there still an open world SW game in development? I've been waiting so long for a GTA/Red Dead style SW game where you can just do whatever you want.

Jedi Academy is close to that.  It was all skill based so I really don't think it'd be dated although it came out 10 years ago.  I bet there's still a community.

If there's anything new in development that'd be fucking great though and been saying that for my whole life.  They will likely fuck up the saber mechanics though.

 

But if you put the scope of our lives into picture - this is by far the most needed thing in our existence, an open world star wars game (Jedi Knight/Academy was so under radar and didn't have license for any movie name players) and it's shocking and pathetic we've yet to ever have one.

I've played Jedi Knight/Academy.

I was a huge Star Wars Galaxies player back in the day. It is by far the best SW game ever made. Was a Sony MMORPG. An amazing game and overall experience but the developers ruined it over time and it folded. People are still playing it to this day on emulated servers

A non-MMO version of that would be so awesome

Yeah I remember Galaxies, it was fucking immense. They just don't have that dedication anymore. Never understood why, star wars is perfect potential for a massive open world game people can nerd out to. Galaxies was closest.

 

Actually my Mt. Rushmore:

1. Star Wars Galaxies (massive, open world)

2. Jedi Knight/Academy (saber mechanics, online mods)

3. Battlefront 1/2 (shooting game)

4. Jedi Power Battles (couch co-op)

Never tried it. Looks kind of dumb but willing to give it a download.

I'm racist against gingers, but besides that flaw I had fun with it. I think you would like it

I honestly like just about every star wars game except a few, and way more than the movies themselves, so I probably will.  The prequels biggest asset is the games they were able to inspire with a wider universe to implement. 

 

That is just the first cover of a star wars game where I said "this looks lame".
