VTMB is one of my all-time favorite games and I thought I was dreaming when I saw the sequel advertised on Steam. Why is leftist rhetoric so dominant in the industry?
When I was a kid my favorite relative was Uncle Caveman. After school we'd all go play in his cave, and every once in a while he would eat one of us. It wasn't until later that I found out that Uncle Caveman was a bear.

Soyboys, low entry requirements and a very young customer base.

Because it is the only rhetoric that social media will tolerate.

Yeah shit got messy after SR2. I love Blood Omen and the desolate future they presented in Soul Reaver, something about the already monstrous (as they should be) vampires devolving into horrible abominations and each clan having their own traits really spoke with me. Shame the only thing we’ve gotten out of the series has been a shitty MOBA game.
"The vampires have won, but then everything got FUBAR" is a neat concept for a vampire story, and I like how refreshing and at times unconventional the vampires are, what with their mutations (I especially love the shark and spider vampires) and their extreme weakness to simple H20.
Whereas most vampire fiction usually has some snarky vamprie go "ACTUAL LEE, crosses/garlic/sunlight doesn't work on us...", they went and hypercharged a somewhat obscure weakness to running water. Naturally, the one human settlement in Soul Reaver has water everywhere. It would've been fun seeing more stuff during that timeline, like say some human city build on an island having to suddenly deal with free-roaming sharkpires.

Also the soundtracks were fucking awesome.

How come this game, that I still need to play, didn't get a sequel? or maybe a remaster (Vampire: The Masquerade - Redemption)

Damn dude you summarized it perfectly! As an enthusiast of mythology and folklore I am adamant about monsters having their traditional weaknesses, that snarky shit where writers just want vamps to be demi gods pisses me off. They’re horrific monsters, undead fiends that prey on humanity. They’re not supposed to be kryptonians for Christ sake.

Ah yeah the citadel, the design for that was so cool. Shame they couldn’t implement the cut kahntent that was supposed to take place there. The entire realm of Nosgoth was so well thought out. The smoke stacks designed to plunge the land into eternal night, the dreary landscape, occasionally finding some poor human who’d fallen prey to vampires or a rare hunter.

That's the one were you play a vampire who starts in the Middle Ages and then works his way to Current Year, right? I always felt that had a bit more meat to it than Bloodline's "You're a vampire know, son. Have fun doing fetch quests for us."

Yeah Redemption is pretty fucking rad, although the AI for your party is retarded. The game get borderline impossible unless you start to use the Celerity/Protean combowombo and level them up asap. All the other skills vary from 'meh' to pretty much useless. The game has certainly got the mood right, including the dark ages segments.
