  1. I don't usually call things "overrated" but I cannot, for the life of me, figure out why there are so many people who want Conker to come back. Bad Fur Day's humor is something I would've laughed at when I was 12 and then never again.

      I think Conker was a product of it's time (and was outrageous on the principle of being unique, at least on the N64) and I'd like to assume that when people want more, they would want a game which would be a funny platformer by THIS generation's standards, not just more of the exact same thing. Honestly though, as someone who enjoyed it, I'd be fine with it remaining as a one-off title, and I certainly wish they would stop trying to brute-force the character into places he doesn't belong, trying to ignore what a crass game he originates from (well, not originates, but y'know, popularised him).

      I’d love to see someone like the writers behind Saints Row 4, tackle a Conker game. SR4 was fucking funny meta shit, and I can totally see them updating Conker is a reasonable fashion that can still maintain itself in the Conker universe while modernizing.

      People literally want every cartoon platformer mascot to come back regardless of whether its warranted

      @JezMM @KHCast I can see what you're both saying. Based on what I've read, though, there are a lot of people who seem to want more of the same, and I've always seen the "joke" of Conker as something that could only easily be done once. "Edgy-take-on-wholesome-children's-media" is so played out at this point, and I thought BFD was easily Rare's worst platformer from a gameplay perspective. The game industry is certainly ripe for parody, I guess I just don't find the character or the original game to be particularly funny. 

      @Wraith That's also true.

      Actually scratch that. Devolver digital making a Conker game. I need that yesterday

      Gameplay-wise I feel Conker was a breath of fresh air in it's linearity compared to DK64 and B-T's gradual "Bigger is better!!!" mentality getting worse and worse when B-K got the scale just right.  Having said that it's very loose to control, and because the game switches up gameplay so much, seemingly being designed from the top down ("here's a joke/scene/parody we want to make, now how do we make gameplay out of it", rather than the other way round), no individual part of it feels particularly polished, pretty much every set-piece has some minor issues that you have to figure out how to work around before you'll find success (like distances between platforms, hitboxes on interacting with things/bosses etc).  Basically it's a pretty hard game, and it doesn't always seem to be intentionally so.

      I definitely respect their vision a lot more than B-T and DK64, which just seemed overly padded for the sake of padding.
