    i have a unique question

    dos anyone know if the thief universe and the system shock universe are the same just different time lines or later in time?

    are there any nod to thief in system shock games/vice versa in thief

    i know thief 4 was suppose to be set in the future and i always wondered if they were connected to system shock series

    i never played a system shock game,only demos years ago,hence i would ask someone who is seasoned in both games to see if they know

    "Unique" is, I suppose, the most charitable way to describe this question. Since it's you, I suppose we should count our lucky stars that you didn't declare it "the greatest question ever".

    the dos answer is no, as the dos few thief world maps available clearly show the dos thief planet is not Earth. dos that answer the "unique" question?

    Connection Between Certain Games
    ALL GAME TITLES WILL BE CAPITALIZED!

    1.) In DISHONORED, there was a THIEF easter egg.

    2.) DISHONORED and BIOSHOCK are connected.

    3.A.) A Big Daddy from BIOSHOCK is in BORDERLANDS.
    3.B.) BIOSHOCK and THE ELDER SCROLLS are connected.
    3.C.) BIOSHOCK and SYSTEM SHOCK are connected.

    3.B.2.) Wheatly from PORTAL is in THE ELDER SCROLLS.
    3.B.3.) THE ELDER SCROLLS and FALLOUT are connected.

    3.B.2.B.) PORTAL and HALF-LIFE are in the same universe.
    3.B.2.C.) PORTAL and THE KILLING FLOOR are connected.

    3.B.3.B.) FALLOUT and WOLFENSTEIN are connected.
    3.B.3.C.) FALLOUT and DOOM are connected.

    So, THIEF, DISHONORED, BIOSHOCK, BORDERLANDS, THE ELDER SCROLLS, SYSTEM SHOCK, PORTAL, HALF-LIFE, FALLOUT, WOLFENSTEIN, DOOM, and THE KILLING FLOOR.

    Game designers work on different games & take inspiration from other games, even subconsciously or inadvertently, so you'll always see elements that remind you of other games in any game, sometimes it's deliberate as an Easter egg or a salute to other games sometimes it's not

    It's like TV series, one show has an idea, shortly after several other shows have a similar idea

    Look up https://tvtropes.org/, same thing happens with games

    It's very hard to be completely original

    1. That's true.
    2. By what other than a somewhat similar set of design principles?
    3a. It's a reference/Easter Egg in one of the Borderlands 2 DLCs, but the series draws half or more of its humour from referencing things, so it's pretty meaningless for this argument.
    3b. There's exactly 0 evidence for this one.
    3c. By Ken Levine, but you could make an argument that they're in the same universe.
    3b2. It's the Space Core, and it's a mod.
    3b3. Through Bethesda, yes, but this is only because Bethesda bought the rights.
    3b2b. This is one of the only things on the list that's actually true.
    3b2c. Haven't played Killing Floor, but I somehow doubt it.
    3b3b. No?
    3b3c. No.

    It's the gaming equivalent of a conspiracy theory, and holds up about as well as one under scrutiny.

    I'm convinced ZB and downwinder are the same person in a weird George/Kuato kinda way!

    Right, like Captain Ahab and Jean Valjean were actually the same person.
