The original two Thief games still stand as my most loved games. My best friend and I would play into the dark hours, enjoying Garrett’s quips and moving in the shadows. I think my favourite memory was taking forever to sneak up behind this one difficult guard. When we finally blackjacked him, instead of crumpling satisfyingly to the ground, the blackjack rang off the back of the guard’s helmet with a huge CLANG! Our victory snatched away, our jaws hanging open, poor Garrett just stood there and got slaughtered. Needless to say…if you ever play the originals, watch out for guards with helmets protecting their necks.
So, I’m extremely pleased that there is another Thief game. For now, this is what’s available:
P.S. Did you notice that Garrett lives in a garret?
