Due to a post two minutes ago, it came up with an idea.

If Lucasarts hits their heads and does not decide to do a jk4, (I heard they are, but rumors aren't always true), then who will...

Answer: The community?

With a bunch of "Players" working, JK4 would be possible... I'm sure we (I would want to help)... could come up with a story...

I myself am a mapper...

we'll have to wait a bit first, but there is a chance they won't... But a fourth installment would be far worth the work.

It would be possible to do it out of jk3, but not too easy.

If not... The quake III source code is available from ID, i'm sure that will work too.

So, if Jk4 was done by the community, what would it be like?

Would it be boring, and dumb?

Would it be more exiting then the others?

Would it just be as good as jk2?

... I admit the jk3 one did not even near jk2, or kotor... Jedi knight 2 was great, while #3 was kinda weak.

How about the gameplay?

This all depends on the community, while if lucasarts did it, it would also be great.

What do you think? Yes you... yes, YOU?

Let me make a list of all the things that come to mind:

-cliche -grammatically incorrect -politically incorrect -obscene -"omgz n00b!" -no plot and/or overdone plot and/or awful plot -focused on mutliplayer -unbalanced

Shall I go on? This is just things I've noticed from peoples' suggestions in the other thread. If you let 15 year olds design a video game, it's not going to turn out well...

Most of all, it would be exceedingly boring, because everyone would be watching its development on the forums and thus there would be no surprises whatsoever. Oh, and 'politically incorrect' is a plus, I believe.

Depends on what form of politically incorrect it is. Because there's "absolute truth" and there's "spoken so wrongly you've insulted an entire continent."

Really, there's a reason you have to go to college (in most cases) before you can get into this kind of thing.

Yep and Its kinda hard to,but fun. Jk4 would be awesome.I think they will make it.I think that It will be for the next generation console as well for the new comps.Im pretty sure the graphics will be mind blowing for the community and Fans of Star Wars.(I hope) Im sure If we all come together on this we will have ourself a JK4.A Kick @$$ one too.Lets cross are fingers for the future of a jk4 community.

You are correct. But if the "Community" did not let but older, more mature people who can spell do it, that will be a different story... Still Omgz Noob, no plot and/or overdone plot and/or awful plot, focused on multiplayer, and unbalanced.

So lets balance it to the 6,242 reasons why lucasarts would do it, and 2 reasons why not:

Reasons why not: If lucasarts becomes lazy

If lucasarts gets shut down: 2 reasons:

Reasons:

If everyone in lucasarts all die at the same day.

If everything that has to do with lucasarts gets bombed. That includes players, workers, harddrives, brains, evidence, ect. EG: A bunch of aliens blow up the earth.

(Not really the reasons)

And the 6,242 reasons to do so...

*Sigh* where to start?

Cliche is only if you allow people who don't have a clue as to what they're doing write the SP story. I have a team of skilled fanfic writers that could come up with a story 100 times deeper than the JK3 story.

Grammatically incorrect? Nah, I correct people's grammer out of habit.

Politically incorrect is a term used by the communist left to describe any line of thought that does not match their own (i.e. anything that's pro-America such as protecting our boarders and keeping our right to defend ourselves)

Obscene would only occur if the story were in the hands of perverts/idiots.

"omgz n00b!" You were saying something about grammatically incorrect?

"no plot and/or overdone plot and/or awful plot" gets the same answer as cliche.

Focused on multiplayer is another thing that would occur with a team of total idiots running the project.

Can you put some clarification on unbalanced? Because it could mean a lot of things.

Anyway, I've put in my opinion on the matter. Just a note that you shouldn't underestimate the people out there just because the majority you run into are complete idiots.

Community means everyone. I rest my case.

Now, if it were "Jedi Knight 4 - by _NRN_R_Fast_Eddie", maybe it would be a different story....
