    What about Wario? Either tomb raiding or making cheap games (also see mobile) he is a thief in a way.

    Good God I love (original) Garrett. I was just rewatching all the cut scenes from the original trilogy. Such a gorgeous art style....one the reboot is sadly missing. Speaking of Thief, I find it almost criminal how they rebooted it. The original trilogy came full circle and ended with Garrett taking on a young girl as his protege. Why the hell didn't we just get a new Thief game with her as the main character? Imagine having Garrett as a crotchety old man mentoring a 20 something female version of Garrett.

    Auto correct and lack of an edit button. Good times.

    Would you be happier with the game if it was called something else and just had different characters? Genuine curiosity, not being a smartass or anything, because I think it REALLY matters what order you play the games in. I havn't played the originals (i'm gonna get the collection on steam though, the high praise is inescapable and I've been meaning to), and I'm only an hour into the reboot but I'm liking it well enough so far, I'm having fun with it. I guess for the majority this game is thief in name only. I'm trying to tell myself to just treat it as a dishonored alternate universe or something.

    I may be coming down on Thief a little too hard. I'm enjoying it quite a bit because they nailed the thieving but the story is incredibly dumbed down and boring. If you haven't play the originals yet you are in for a treat. Like BioShock, much of the story is passed on through self discovery. One thing I can't get past is the ridiculous amount of polishing it is missing. I've experienced a SHIT load of glitches. In a game like Skyrim, its acceptable because of the vast size of the world. This Thief has incredibly small areas with load screens EVERYWHERE. I've also had numerous audio bugs as well. The style and story may not be there but there is an incredibly fun game underneath all the obvious flaws. I'm enjoying it because it fills a niche that we do not see anymore. I hope this sells well so we can get an improved sequel but I think a lot of people are going to pass because nobody wants to be sold on a game with the glaring flaws this one possesses.

    I totally agree with you. I think that just because it's been a few years, the devs thought that everyone had forgotten Garrett, and so felt the need to start from scratch. If there's anything I'm getting sick of seeing as an older gamer (i.e 30) it's this pointless and frivolous attitude that is continuously stunting the true development and evolution of beloved franchises. Then again, Assassin's Creed is doing a continuous story and that's a friggin' mess so I dunno what to believe.

    No Carmen SanDiego? Also, how is Kasumi Likable? she was extremely bland...
  • PlainLikeVanilla - February 26, 2014 11:16 a.m.

    I liked Kasumi so :P
  • JMarsella09 - February 26, 2014 1:59 p.m.

    I liked Kasumi as well. I found her playful yet conniving personality rather fun.
  • Redeater - February 26, 2014 2:29 p.m.

    Your complaining about Kasumi being bland, while at the same time asking why Carmen SanDiego isn't on this list? Carmen SanDiego is the literal definition of a cardboard cut out character.You could replace her picture with The Hamburgler and nobody would notice the difference. :D "The Hamburgler was seen in Regina, Saskatchewan." "Rat's, the Hamburgler has escaped our grasp again."
  • BladedFalcon - February 26, 2014 6:25 p.m.

    I agree Carmen SanDiego doesn't really have a personality of it's own... But same like Mario, Mickey or other icons, in her case it's less of her personality, and more of what she represents, that's just me though *shrugs* Kasumi however, while better defined compared to Carmen, is already in a game will with characters filled with strong personalities and motives. And compared to the vest majority of them, I do think she feels bland in comparison. Even back to her loyalty Mission, i barely even felt her supposed emotional conflict and pain concerning her murdered lover. Jack might be my most despised character, but even she was more interesting than Kasumi. To me, Kasumi is the female equivalent of kaidan as the roles of gray sludge in the ME series, even compared to Ashley and Miranda, both who have stronger motivations and personality than her.

    I concur. At first I thought her a Tali clone by way of her appearance, then realised unlike Tali, she had real personality to speak of.

    Eidos Montreal, I want Thief 4 now.
  • Redeater - February 26, 2014 2:18 p.m.

    I've traveled from the future to warn you. No....you probably don't.

    If you guys ever do a Most Hated Thieves article, make sure that the little scorpion who steals your Options in Gradius makes the list. Because screw them.
  • TheDudeFromNowhere - February 6, 2013 12:10 p.m.

    Yuffie ~ who stole all of my materia near the end game of FF7. And later returned it. But just the thought of losing Knights, 4x cut, and all my other materia set ups, drove me insane when I was playing in the 6th grade.
  • ultimatepunchrod - February 6, 2013 8:15 a.m.

    Nathan Drake was last seen in Golden Abyss, not 3.
  • TheDudeFromNowhere - February 6, 2013 12:07 p.m.

    Well, canonically Golden Abyss took place before the entire Uncharted Ps3 trilogy. But I don't know if they were referring to that.
  • sam-onorato - February 6, 2013 1:33 p.m.

    canonically - of or relating to canons. I think you mean chronologically,,,? how do you confuse the two?
  • TheDudeFromNowhere - February 7, 2013 2:37 p.m.

    oh right, sorry. I was thinking about DMC at the time I was writing. How the new DMC isn't canon to the previous series ~ and the order the first series went chronologically. Sorry sorry ~ my mind goes off on its own sometimes.
