Legacy of Kain

Man, what an awesome series.

Back in the Playstation 2 era, Legacy of Kain was one of the coolest fantasy series around. While on a technical basis the games were not really that remarkable (or even that good), the characters, setting, and story just rocked. A dark fantasy, superhero supervillain, cosmic, time-travel conspiracy. Populated entirely by badasses.  8)
The intro of the second game is still considered to be a timeless classic by fans.

With the story pretty well wrapped up and the property owners defunct, adding any more games to the series seems more than impractical. But I would really love to see someone picking up the idea of a dark fantasy evil demigod civil war series again. It's so over the top, but also one of the most metal things ever done in games.  ;D

How curious, I thought of this game for no reason about two days ago.

And back to Playstation 2? I think it was much, much earlier than that... I remember playing it on a PC with those white-box monitors, far longer before I even had a Playstation let alone a PS2.

The first two games were PS1, the later three PS2.
