Where are those thousands of games that copied the gameplay and design of System Shock?Deserves better, I mean this is a classic title in gameplay and design that thousands have copied. This update needed to be equal to The Callisto protocol. Im sure it will be fine but just disappointed.
Is this for real?
Graphically it looks like it was developed for last gen but was unfortunately delayed too much. Regardless it's System Shock so I'll be happy to play it when it releases.Deserves better, I mean this is a classic title in gameplay and design that thousands have copied.

You mean story driven narrative FPS shooter? Too many to name.
Yeah, they're influential. You won't find me arguing against that, I'm probably the biggest Looking Glass fanboy on this board. But I don't think being influenced by a game (either directly or indirectly) is the same thing as copying that game, and there are of course plenty of shooters out there that are nothing like System Shock in terms of gameplay and design, even though they're clearly narrative-driven (think games like Jedi Knight, Spec Ops: The Line, or Call of Juarez: Gunslinger).Is this for real?
Alien: Isolation, SOMA, Bioshock, Prey (2017), Deus Ex, and many more.
System Shock, like almost every Looking Glass Studios title, has been a massive influence on the industry.
I saw in the trailer there were a few moments where a futuristic city is shown , is that area actually playable? does anyone who played the original know this? I thought the entire game was on a space station, would be really cool if we had some playable sections in that city also.
Well, where are those thousands of games, then? And where do you draw the line? Is any single player shooter released after 1994 with a narrative more complex than "find all the keys, get to the end of the level" automatically going to be guilty of having "copied" System Shock?Kids these days have no respect for history.
They should have just taken more liberties with the attacking animations and attacking reactions since they took liberties changing a ton of other things. I'll still play it but it feels like one foot in the door one foot out. Even if they upset older fans a little hopefully it will be polished enough for those new to the franchise to enjoy.
