    Animated characters enable creators to express things, normal human actors can't.
    I hope it will turn out to be good.

    Michael Ironside has to be in this somewhere or it's not worth it.

    What is it with the sub 100 posters bringing social-political bullshit into this thread? One already got deleted and now there are 2 more?

    There's lots of potential for great storylines from that world, but I would be more excited if it wasn't animated.

    Im 50 and still enjoy watching the Appleseed series and films, also the Resident evil anim`s are pretty good, cartoons are the likes of tom and jerry, popeye and the road runner.

    Holy cow talk about resurrecting a project long been in development hell.. this thing had been initially talked about long over ten years ago. Can't recall which studio had it at the time. Around the time Pandora Tomorrow was released or just after the game possibly between it and Chaos Theory.
    I WOULD LOVE THIS IF HE WAS IN IT but possibly as like a mentoring character due to his age. Although he was always good at throwing his voice around so he could possibly play sam fisher who knows...

    Has to just be trolls right?

    Maybe you should visit anime threads in pub. Many are much deeper than popular high budget movies. And some are on completely different level.
    Or you can just start with classics like:
    Perfect Blue, Girl who Leapt through Time, 5 Centimeters per Second, Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind, Mononoke Hime, The Place Promised in Our Early Days, ...

    Then you can check few series:
    Moribito: Guardian of the Spirit, Monster, Zetsuen no Tempest, Serial Experiments Lain, Wolf's Rain, Lunar Legend Tsukihime, Gungrave, Ergo Proxy, ...

    None will provide you with cheap thrill. But will widen your perspective and make you think.
    (And most of them require quite some mental stamina and/or strong heart.)

    Very well put. There are many ways this series could be approached.

    I enjoyed it too. I missed Michael Ironside’s voice & the previous character’s model for Sam Fisher. Cosmetic though. My top 3 are:
    • Chaos Theory (Technically & Mechanically ahead of its time imo) Though one could qualify that for MGS PS1
    • Conviction
    • Blacklist

    You are very narrow minded then. Who said anything about cartoons ? Maybe they will make it anime stile, which is superior.

    No :) the series is split in two.
    The first 3 games, with Chaos Theory being the best SpC ever. And the second half with Double Agent, Conviction and Blacklist of which the latter is the best.
    If they make a SpC with Chaos Theory in mind i would be pleased. If they bring SJW and make it like Conviction then it is better that the series is dead.

    I would rank them, from best to worst.
    Chaos Theory
    Splinter Cell
    Blacklist
    Pandora Tomorrow
    Double Agent
    Conviction
