I could see this coming from a mile away. All his complaints about the game are things I absolutely can't stand in games. Glad I gave it a pass.
It has an 83 metacritic, how are they railing on it?
Enough that they equal or outnumber the good reviews. Some of you are acting like the game was universally panned by critics and the general audience alike.
Honestly, that is probably the best way to describe DS. The intro alone makes you feel like you are in a theater about to watch a masterpiece, only you then remember that this isn't a movie and you actually get to control this narrative.
Well it seems pretty regular for the highly marketed and lets say "flagship" titles on consoles, to have a rather heavy intolerance of other peoples opinions, especially for the "hyped" games that are contentious or otherwise received more poorly than anticipated.
I went nope after seeing longer uncut gameplay videos, I don't have time for that, but I watched the cutscenes some kind person had uploaded on youtube and found them quite interesting to say the least.
That's the route I'll likely go. One day, I'll block out some time and just watch uploaded cutscenes.
I don't want to spoil anything but as a parent I had some serious issues with the story, youtube was good for me since I could skip through some scenes. But it still needs to be said that Kojima is in a league of his own when it comes to games that tries to be movies.That's the route I'll likely go. One day, I'll block out some time and just watch uploaded cutscenes.
But this game's systems just sound like a chore. I don't want to play a video game and have to be mindful of my shoe's conditions, or soothe an in-game child. I'm busy enough with real-life work and parenthood.
But not every game is meant to appeal to every gamer, so I'll just save some cash this time around. I'm glad Kojima was able to make the game he wanted to make. Though having someone to check your worst impulses and tell you "no" isn't always a bad thing.
Many people are playing the game right now in the OT and loving it Maybe get out of the bubble of this thread
genuinely if you look at the breadth of opinion there's tons of reviews that loved it and praise the game and are genuinely having fun. and there are some who didn't, and that's OK. if you only want to elevate a small number of voices to fit a narrative, that's on you.
The criticism is what you are describing what you enjoy. He doesn't say it's a bad game, he says it's a bad game for him.I love Jim’s videos, but after playing for around 10 hours (chapter 3) I honestly don’t understand most of the criticism. Its takes a long time to complete missions but ur playing the game every second u control sam and for me it’s been fun to micromanage the cargo and balance plus the presentation and story is blowing my mind with every cut scene.
Now if u hate those 2 aspects then it’s not for u i guess.
I do know that i’m still in the beginning but unless it drops in quality massively then it will still be my GOTY
All I'm going to say it's way more fun playing than watching and after playing 13 hours the shoe degradation is overblown. You won't even notice it because it takes forever to degrade and you will have plenty of backup shoes. I'm enjoying it but I understand it's not for everyone.
Sorry if i wasn’t clear as english is not my first language, i was talking about reviews for the game in general, of course every one is entitled for their own opinions but reading some of them including impressions will convince u that it’s the most boring game in the world (edge, giant bomb).
Yeah, that was a very informative video imo. When games are trash his videos are very different.
I get the reasons why I hate this type of game is why others love it. But what's cuts deep is that I assumed he wouldn't steer his games in this direction because of his work on previous games, games that made me a fan of his. Even MGS5, for all its faults, is mechanically brilliantly designed, and what isnt felt like a result of corporate meddling. But I don't see any of that in DS. I'm honestly losing faith in the guy, unfortunately, and starting to believe he had other talent that are equally responsible for his best work.
Maybe because they think its the most boring game in the worldSorry if i wasn’t clear as english is not my first language, i was talking about reviews for the game in general, of course every one is entitled for their own opinions but reading some of them including impressions will convince u that it’s the most boring game in the world (edge, giant bomb).
