JoWood, Please NO MORE!
If you have read any of my Hubs, then you know that I am a huge fan of the German software developer Piranha Bytes. They have made some of the best RPGs that I have played. As a former software and game reviewer, I have played a lot of them! Piranha Bytes' is most famous for its Gothic series and their newest release, Risen.
After the release of Gothic 3, JoWood took the rights to the Gothic games. They released an addon to Gothic 3 called Forsaken Gods. It was awful, absolutely awful. The story made no sense if you had ever played Gothic 3. Even if you never played any Gothic game, you still would probably be offended by the horrendous plot and story. It was miserable.
The only positive thing that I can say about Forsaken Gods was that it was based on Gothic 3. The world was just as beautiful and the music was unbelievable. The only other positive, was that it was so bad, I couldn't wait to see how bad it was going to get. Believe me, it gets really bad!
JoWood has supposedly been working on Gothic 4 for some time now. As a fan of the Gothic series I have to beg them to please stop. At least don't insult the fans of the original series by having the word Gothic in the title (or anywhere on the box for that matter!) Just release some new game and I assure you, if its as good as Forsaken Gods, you will earn the title of worst video game producer ever!
