          Hollow Knight may be incredibly full of content, but Dread’s raw gameplay destroys it, and I love HK, 112%, pantheon of hallownest completed and white palace platforming challenge finished.

            tbf hk has tons more to do, more ways to do it, more area variety, and better music all for a quarter of the price
            dread is fine, i beat it recently but its stupid to think it outdoes its competition because its first party nintendo

            Wtf does this mean? Dread’s exploration, combat, bosses are all shit compared to HK. There are not even any puzzles. Dread is a retarded version of Guacamelee where everything is kinda shitty and pointless.

          I picked up Hollow Knight on launch a few years ago, beat the first couple bosses or so and got bored. I don’t get the hype, and I don’t see why the long ass length is supposedly a good thing either.

            Combat and mobility scale exponentially but its such a slow burn, I don’t blame anyone for checking out early. The game tricks you into thinking its 2D dark souls but it evolves into a crazy platform fighter by the end. There’s many people that have the opposite opinion to yours, where they love the slow boring part of the game but them quit when it gets too hard and fast for them. Can’t please everyone I suppose.

              True, I’d guess those would be the same people who’ve been complaining about Dread’s difficulty. Not me though, Dread was awesome and the challenge was perfect.

                The main thing I love about Dread above anything else is the fluidity to movement and shooting. I just wish there was more of a deadzone for horizontal aiming because I kept missing enemies while jumping because my stick was pointed slightly upward, but that’s a nitpick

        actually being honest, Hollow knight couldn’t capture the subtle horror mystery atmosphere that Metroid does. it was genuinely boring and uninteresting lore wise. Metroid always has fun areas and bosses that come at you by surprise. then hits you an predictable but honest twist at the end for fun. Hollow knight was fine but it just wanted to be sad and depressing rather than actually encouraging you to explore a foreign world riddled with mystery and secrets. Metroid does it better.

          I respect Hollow Knight but I have tried to get into it twice and just did not stick with it further than the first two bosses or so. It’s not that i was not having fun or anything, but for some reason I just did not come back to play more the day after. Maybe it’s the art direction or the huge levels that aren’t all that dense. The art direction really bothers me though. It reminds me of Lenore in that watered down Tim Burton way, mixed with that low detail Flash game looks.

          It also came out the same year as RainWorld and I was kind of Upset that it got all the good press while the actual mould-breaking masterpiece was completely ignored.

          But again, this has more to do with personal taste than anything. For me, Hollow Knight is no metroid. In metroid games I can’t drop the fucking controller. It is dense as fuck and the atmosphere is amazing in its own way. It is not affected by the Dark Souls shockwave of "decaying world" melodrama, which again, taints Hollow Knight deeply. This brings me back to the art direction in HK, because that serious melodrama mixed with the cutesy art direction reminds me too much of tumblr fanart of calarts shows or something, and I think I am a bit tired of that.

            This is why I’ve always argued that Hollow Knight should be compared more to games like Dark Souls than Metroid. Hollow Knight’s approach to the genre is just too different with its Super Meat Boy platforming and comparatively simple but more abusable tools. The dash having i frames was all I needed to see to know that HK wasn’t for me.

                Pretty sure it doesn’t give you i-frames, I was making using it a ton against chozo minibosses and I always took damage when I collided with their attacks.

                  Yeah but its frame 1 teleport and you get 3 of time. You can’t go through abilities but its essentially free movment. HK bosses start necessitating that you i-frame through laser walls, but Dread the only boss where it felt necessary to have that amount of obscene mobility is the final boss. Point being, I don’t see what’s so disasterous about i-frames, the bosses in Dread (excluding final man) are so easy that you wouldn’t even need them.

                    I-frames take away from the game because instead of having to make use of your entire tool set to deal with attacks and problems everything has the same answer

                      Not even remotely true for Hollow Knight. Not only is there sizeable cooldown on the i-frame dodge, but a lot of attacks are simply too big to dodge through. There’s set attacks that you might be able to i-frame through, and attacks that might be better to outright just walk away from or attempt to parry. The two final bosses are completely opposite in terms of how they fight and the i-frame dodge is way more useful on one that the other, almost like they gave a player a set of tools and tested them on how to use all of them.

            Hollow knight is not bad by any means but what hollow knight to do fails where metroid succeeds is give you a real sense of mystery and intrigue right off the bat. metroid worlds are so foreign and mysterious. you don’t know what will come next which makes it’s claustrophobic explorative aspects strong. with hollow knight you might only get interested after playing it for 2 hours because you meet a mysterious cute girl character that you want to know more about

            Same. I’ve tried to get into it four or five times and each time I just couldn’t. I’m also not a fan of the art style of the same reasons as you plus I don’t like the bug aesthetic. Supposedly it is hand drawn png in photoshop loaded into unity but it looks like vector animation like flash to me. I didn’t hate the game I did get bored and put it down though. My expectations were high because so many said it was the best Metroidvania there was and revolutionized the formula. I don’t get it. Dread I can play for a couple hours until my eyes get strained and I need a break.

              This is what bugs me the most. Rainworld fits that description a lot more. It’s a smart, brave game and is actually revolutionary and came out the same year.

              Seriously, Hollow Knight is a great game in its own right but the fanboys can be extremely annoying because as an indie game that piggyrides on the metroid formula, it’s not the one which has added more to the conversation. Then an actual metroid game with decent production values comes out and if it doesn’t have the same size as a flash game with kilometers and kilometers and fodder at a budget cost, it’s shit.

              Well rainworld is even cheaper and blows holow knight out of the water. But perhaps that game is actually too hard.

          you have some valid points there. I mean, I had a blast playing the game, but the EMMIs alone drop the replay value to 0, and holy fuck, I never could memorize which area I was in. Distinct areas was always one of the best things in metroid, and here it just feels bland.
          My biggest gripe however are the travel confirmations. Even when you stand on the button by accident for just too long, it interrupts you for an eternity before you can abort it. How can you fuck up fast travel like that?

              Dread does that. Artaria transitions pretty notably into Cataris, and the frozen-over parts of the map convey the lack of thermal fuel routing.

              The ironic thing about this criticism is that only RoS does this. Making this complaint about a series that always uses elevators for zone transitions is silly.

      Hallowknight is more akin to the standard platformer adventure games like Zelda 2, Monster World where the areas are more segmented and the prompting is more story focused.

      I’d go as far to say that the parts where Hallowknight tries to copy metroid’s style of exploration are the weakest.

      I like Hollow Knight and I do think that Dread is a bit too short, but honestly HK does feel a bit bloated in comparison. Dread seems more carefully designed to me, it feels like every screen serves a purpose, there’s no
      real dead air to speak of. In HK I feel like a lot of areas are just there to present an isolated, out of context challenge the dev designed rather than being part of the world as a whole (in terms of game design, not lore) – and I don’t it’s necesserily worse because of it, just different.
      But would Dread really be better if they put some more extra gauntlets in between the upgrades? I don’t really think so.

        power bomb is a good way, but the morphball being slow af and the charge can take its fucking time.
        Don’t waste storm missiles on it. It’s a tiny bit faster, but you need to lock on four or five times.
        my experience was that missiles and free aim were the fastest way to destroy it, usually fast enough to get ready for the follow up attack

      There’s so much more Metroidvanias that are just straight up better or cheaper that has been released in recent years or even older classics.
      Here are some examples.
      >Cave Story
      >La-Mulana
      >La-Mulana 2
      >Ender Lilies
      >Blasphemous
      >Ori and the Will of the Wisps
      >Rabi-Ribi
      >Shadow Man
      >Touhou Luna Night
      >Dust an Elysian Tale
      >Axiom Verge
      >The Mummy Demastered
      >Batman Arkham Asylum
      >Guacamelee 2
      You fags should really play more fucking games, Cave Story itself can BTFO the majority of actual Metroid games.

          Get better taste fag and play more fucking games, just because its a game funded by your billion dollar overlords doesn’t automatically make it better.

      I didn’t see anyone talk about Hollow Knight for a long time and suddenly it’s brought up all the time with this forced rivalry. Are these actual HKfags or just snoys trying to falseflag?

        There are some bitter Hollow Knight fans mad that people like another Metroidvania but a lot of it is masked console war shitposting.

        I don’t know why these games can’t coexist, they do wildly different things with the Metroidvania concept. Hollow Knight is more akin to Souls or Zelda 2, a large RPGish map you explore and progression is tied to character quests, badge setups and plot. Metroid is a run n gun where you’re doing new puzzles or dealing with stalker enemies every single room.

            The majority of the HK fanbase hasn’t even played a Metroid game and are being overly defensive because of the Silksong radio silence, yes.
            Not even specifically talking Ganker, you can see it all over social media.

          I’m confident most HK fans are Metroidfags at some point.

      Hollow Knight is a better game than Metrod Dread. It is, nothing you say will be able to change this fact.
      That’s not to say that Metroid Dread isn’t good because it is, but Hollow Knight is better, no matter how much you might screech and whine and cope and all that shit, it won’t change a thing.

      Also, bear in mind that Hollow Knight was created by a team of three people whilst Metroid Dread was created by a team of about 25.
      That’s absolutely astonishing to think about.

        Because rivalries are good, it raises awareness of both games and it forces the developers of each to compete against one another, learning what they can from the rival game.

              Yeah, what gave it away for me is on 2nd playthrough in the intro where Samus fights him, the sequence literally shows you this
              get down when he does the huge lazer thing
              parry his dash attack

              Pretty good game design if you ask me, subtly show you a boss’s mechanic during the cutscene

      Exactly, it’s just as good as Hollow Knight
      The only people pooping on either game are seething tards that can’t handle the success of the genre here on this Korean Basket-weaving forum who want to make it another console war shitshow
      Now if you excuse me, I’m gonna go and play Hollow Knight and Metroid Dread again while I wait for Silksong and Prime 4, Keep seething tards
