The Best Kind Of Reboots

The best reboots are the kind that doesn't necessarily chuck all previous continuity to the abyss but still reaping the benefits of a clean slate

examples

Mortal Kombat (2011)

even though its a retelling of the first three games the story starts where the last game leaves off; despite Inferno being dead the villan and Raiden are still alive to compete for the "God Like Power" The Villan wins and Raiden in a desparate attempt to save the future sends a message back in time to his younger self to "have him win" weither its the same timeline or not it acknowledges that the events of MK Armegeddon happened despite the now altered timeline

Neurorotically Yours

i'll just let John Mathers character explain it





"we'll reboot the reboot"


DC Universe

I'm not clear on this but apprantly the Flash runs across time and space and somehow has restarted everything, with him and someone cloaked in pink being the only ones who know of this

Re: The Best Kind Of Reboots

Nothing is wrong with reboots, I don't understand peoples problems with them. A story was told in that universe over there, and now we'll get one in this universe over here.

Re: The Best Kind Of Reboots

Mortal Kombat
Donkey Kong Country Returns
Rayman Origins

Fallout 3 , Doom 3, and Resident Evil 4 all have the numbers on then but they not really sequels but they all really reboots because they change up the formula of the series and make the games fresh..

1.its a coppout

2, its confusing

3. its unintuitive

4.you need to establish that alternete universes are even possible in the fictional universe that you've created in the first place

5, if some things needed to be changed then make it a different story/franchise altogether and let the former stay in its place in history as an example

6. in some cases its just a blatant cash grab
