My friend says that KOTOR is the best piece of Star Wars media, and even though I’ve never played the game I know it can’t be true! I don’t know the first thing about the game so I can’t argue! Please give me reasons why it is inferior to TESB! PLEASE!

I believe the original, theatrical versions of SW & TESB are great films. Beyond that, I have little in common with the typical
Star Wars fan here. Just a heads-up so you aren’t too taken aback when I say I prefer Dark Empire over Return of the Jedi.

I am sorry but KOTOR is pretty damn good. I can’t find any reasonable arguments against it even when compared to OT.

I’ve never enjoyed role-playing video games, so it isn’t shocking that I was completely unable to figure out KOTOR. I don’t even think I made it through the first level/area before quitting. It was too complex for me; I can’t handle any video games that came out after 2002 except Red Dead Redemption.

Kotor and Kotor II are on par in nearly every regard and in some ways it surpasses the OT. For one both plots are simple and both have the best plot twist in their respective genres though I feel like the “No, I am your father.” twist is better even though I was already privy to the twist before I watched the OT in it’s totality for the first time. In terms of general plot I’m going to have to give Kotor the edge because moral dilemmas make for a more interesting story than the OT being all Good vs Evil. At it’s core Kotor is Good vs Evil but a lot of what you do to achieve that can be in the grey area. Jolee’s side quest being the best example of this. In terms of characters Kotor has it hands down. There are so many fleshed out characters Kotor it make the characterization and such in the OT look like child’s play. From the moral dilemmas they have to they arguments and banter that occurs between characters are far more fixated on than what was shown in the OT. But it’s kind of unfair to compare the two because on is a 20+ hour video game and the other are only 6 hours worth of film. And the result of that is that gives the characters and environment to be fleshed out more.

Well KOTOR2 just have too many ridiculous stuff in it (plus a disappointing ending) to be on par with KOTOR.

The ending did sucked ass I agree but I found the moral dilemmas and the greyness of everything to be even done better in Kotor II and I just enjoy it more than the first one. Also the combat is better.

Of course it has some nice moments but overall it is just not on the same level as KOTOR. SWTOR on the other hand I would say is for the most part on KOTOR level.

Coincidentally I’m running through Star Wars and I’m currently playing Kotor (on the Unknown World atm) so after I finish Kotor II I’ll give an updated analysis. I will say this though…Kotor is definitely better than I gave it credit in my first 3 playthroughs.

After Kotor II I’m going to read Revan then The Darth Bane trilogy then Plagueis after that. Next I will watch fanedited versions of the PT and then I will read Lord of The Sith. All that’s left is the OT and hopefully by then TFA will have come out on Bluray

Hm, is this KOTOR or is this the Beatles band. I can’t tell with a few of the comments.

Sorry off topic.

One day we will have properly restored versions of the Original Unaltered Trilogy (OUT); or 1977, 1980, 1983 theatrical releases; So that future generations can enjoy these historic films that change cinema.

Your negative opinion towards the title is not a justification to break the forum rules regarding off-topic posting.

“Help!” is not descriptive of what the thread is about. There is nothing about that statement that is opinion. And I’m not responding again because all you like to do is troll for responses.

The thread is about OP seeking help. The details about what kind of help are in his post.

If anyone was trolling it was you with off-topic stuff. This kind of behaviour is relatively frequent when it comes to you.

Have you played SWTOR?

No, but I hear that even with the Revan expansion there’s still little to noting to do in the end game so I don’t know if it’s worth it. Looks kind of fun for an MMO though.

Easy - it’s a video game.

Spoken like someone who has never played a video game

If anything that is an argument for it. With a video game not only do you have player choices you can completely change the entirety of story with your decision. There is no alternate version of ESB and ROTJ where Luke decides to join Vader even though that would have been a lot better than what we got. Also the characters, plot and even sidequests are fare more fleshed out due to it being a video game. And like I said before the moral dilemmas offer a more riveting plot in my opinion.

It’s unfair to compare a movie in a video game just like it’s unfair to compare a movie to a book.
