That's a big claim, but not one I'm sure many would disagree with. Long before Mass Effect, BioWare nailed the concept of the sprawling sci-fi RPG when it released Knights Of The Old Republic. Set thousands of years before the events of the movies, it established the ancient war between Sith and Jedi in a new light, fleshing out George Lucas' universe in fascinating and often terrifying new ways.
It hasn't aged brilliantly, but I would say that it's absolutely still worth checking out for any Star Wars fans out there. I only recently played it for the first time and had an absolute blast.
Noticing Knights Of The Old Republic was trending on Twitter, Gunn wrote that it's the greatest video game of all time, as well as his favourite Star Wars adaption out of the many TV shows, movies, books, and comics that exist. High praise indeed.
While we haven't seen a new entry in the Knights Of The Old Republic series since 2004, reports suggest a new game or reboot of the original is at last on the horizon.
Reliable Star Wars insider podcast Bespin Bulletin confirmed earlier this year that the project is a-go with an unnamed developer, believed to be the same studio that handled the mobile ports of the original games, Aspyr.
"Amongst my digging, I heard there is a Knights of the Old Republic project in development somewhere," Bespin Bulletin said. "I talked to a couple of people, and I also found out that Jason Schreier said that it's not with EA, and we'll 'never guess' who the studio is that's making this game. I don't know if the bounty hunter game is with them or if it's with Ubisoft. But yeah, EA is working on stuff and there's another unannounced game at EA, which I have no idea what it is. I don't think it's Battlefront 3."
So if we could just get a new game and maybe a Knights Of The Old Republic TV series directed and produced by Gunn, that'd be awesome. Cheers Disney.
