Why this works:
After the original movie, game designers and hollywood directors both have found it near impossible to duplicate the charm and charisma of the original Die Hard.
For one, it had characters that were relatable, and on top of that, there wasn't balls-to-the-wall action all the way through. That's why I think Telltale could really replicate the kind of greatness that no-one else could. By focusing more on the human side of the story, they might be able to bring back what Die Hard fans have been missing.
