      Metroid Dread is way more replayable than Hollow Knight.

      The movements and animations are way more fluid and fun to mess around with.

          Why does HK make this board seethe so unfathomably hard?

            Because some HK "fans" keep shitposting on every single metroidvania thread about how their game is superior and the rest are shit, because this board is a garbage dump where all discussions must be in the context of some kind of faction war. You can’t just like a game, you must also hate the rest.

        no dread’s movement is far superior to hollow knight’s but then again hollow knight never had great traversal mechanics, they were just competent

          Hard disagree, on all counts. Metroids movement feels fine, but the level design makes it atrocious. You are always squishing through holes and slowing down to adjust to the next move you need to do to proceed, and the only open designs are wasted on the shitty emmi encounters.

          Hollow Knight is a complete package game, Metroid feels like an overpriced 3DS game with great animations. Not a fan of the bosses in metroid being piss easy QTE shit though, the parrys break the bosses too easily.

      I love how the game rewards you for beating it under 4 hours. It incentivizes you to actually play it fast, which only serves to highlight how good its movement options are. It’s also not that hard once you know what you’re doing. In fact, one of my few criticisms about the game is how hard mode isn’t hard at all.

          You need to beat it in hard mode under 4 hours to unlock all the Samus art. You also need to beat it with a 100% to unlock all the Chozo art, but that doesn’t need to be in the same playthrough, your end time doesn’t matter for that one.

      Funnily enough, I find myself having the same complaints about Metroid Dread that people have been spouting about HK for years. Boring, everything looks the same, no interesting upgrades. I also don’t get why they decided to railroad the experience, like I can’t go back in a zone to check if I missed something because every gate’s been sealed off so I’m forced to move on to the next zone.

      Hollow Knight is boring because its 20 hours long and you never really feel stronger as you progress. You get some abilities but nothing that changes you or your play style. You still have the basic sword and your basic attacks from start to finish. It completely fails at capturing the sense of character progression that Metroid and Castlevania had. That’s why the replayability is shit too. Why spend 20 hours beating the game only to do it exactly again when you’re playing the exact same way? In Dread you can choose which upgrades you want to get and skip and so your playstyle will change accordingly.

        Isn’t Space Jump the only skippable upgrade though. Whether you IBJ up a big shaft doesn’t exactly make a big difference in "playstyle"

          I think there’s some confusion because the game’s internal timer works a bit differently to how we might conventionally think of our playtime. My first run on normal mode I got only 32% item discovery and my in-game completion time was about 5h30m, but I think that must be only counting actual playing time and must be resetting any time I died to a boss, because there were definitely a couple of bosses where I died a good handful of times and that ought to have pushed my time closer to 7 or 8 hours.

            Besides game over resets, looking at your map probably pauses the timer. As well as cutscenes/loading screens but those I wouldn’t count as gameplay anyway. I finished first time at about 11 hours game time and 15 hours real time, and I certainly didn’t die enough to lose 4 hours of progress through the run.

        Zero Mission. Even with all the quality of life improvements, the original game is way too archaic and obtuse. Zero Mission is way more enjoyable to play. You’re way better off playing the original one after you’ve played every other game, as a bonus.

          Seconding this. The same goes for metroid 2 as well, either play AM2R or Samus Returns instead of the original.
          The original versions of metroid and metroid 2 definitely show their age and are held back by both hardware limitations and immature game design, which detracts from the actual vision for the game.

          After you’ve played the remakes, you can then go back and give the original versions a go as a curiosity to see what they were actually like, but there’s no need to force yourself through them.

      Some of these design decisions are retarded, like why would you put the grapple node there after the elevator if hypothetically you were only meant to be able to reach it after getting the grapple beam anyways? Why put the power bomb expansion on the other side when you can’t even use it by the time you actually do have the grapple beam and you can get it as intended?

        because despite the devs putting in """""""""sequence breaks""""""""""""""" the game is still very restricted. I honestly don’t know why they bothered, but early gravity suit is nice to get rid of pre gravity water areas which are the worst parts in metroid

        >why put the grapple wall there
        to make the player use their newly acquired tool to solve a item "puzzle", thus reminding them of all the other places they can backtrack to if they so wished.
        >why put power bombs there if you can’t use them
        so that players who are careful to scour every nook and cranny don’t have to run back around the entire map again when they get power bombs just to have more than a scrap of ammo for them.

          You have to use the grapple beam twice to get out of the very room you get it in, not to mention once more in another manner to reach the elevator. The passageway you open with it (which is only accessible with grapple beam unless you spasm like an autist with Flash Shift) isn’t even for items, it’s to continue forward normally. At that point, they’ve already placed the restriction to reaching the area and had you use the grapple beam for the same purpose two rooms prior. So much for “sequence breaking” when it necessitates a previous power.

      Absolutely everything has to be a tribalist retard war on Ganker doesn’t it

      Metroid Dread and Hollow Knight can’t simply be two good games that are similar. No, they must be turned into sports teams so the soulless fucking drones on Ganker can fight over them.

        thye’re really not that similar either, sure technically they belong to the same genre but they still have distinct identities, in fact it’s a good thing dread didn’t try to ape hollow knight and stayed true to its classic formula

      Well lads, it is perfectly possible to skip the Ice Missiles (and Scan Pulse). It’s not efficient, but it is something you can do. I think it might be possible to take this route and also skip the spin boost via diagonal water bomb-jumping (and possibly damage boosting), but I can’t be arsed trying it yet due to the fact that failing one of the jumps leads to soft locking and having to reload at a checkpoint.

            I think you’re supposed to get stuck in there. The game capitalizes on the avid fan that knows to bomb everything to find the way out, because they introduce the diffusion beam mechanic very early in the game and they don’t expect you to be as observant with it.

            I also thought I got softlocked and almost looked it up but i’m glad I did not.

              Yeah, this section stumped me for a little while too until I saw the actual route. You’re right, it’s a bit of a trick where you forget that you have the diffusion beam because it hasn’t been used as a required key for a little while.

      Are any of the sequence breaks actually practical? I got the Super Missiles early and all it really did was give me stronger missiles earlier and it didn’t really open up any new paths. Getting bombs early was kind of the same since yeah it lets you kill Kraid easier but you still have to backtrack to him to eventually get the Diffusion Beam.
      Early Gravity Suit was pretty nice though.

        1st Emmi skip, Kraid > Grapple Beam, Early Ice Missiles, and Green Teleporter > Grav Suit > Screw Attack > Cross Bomb > Storm Missiles are standard for speed runners atm.
        Early Super Missiles isn’t really used because Shinespark kills Robo Chozo quicker and Droygan gets skipped. You can skip the spin boost entirely, but it works out quicker to get it, people just wait until after getting the Ice Missiles. Both the Ice Missiles and Scan Pulse can be skipped entirely, but once again it’s not worth it from a time perspective, so only the Space Jump is skipped entirely.

      I don’t know, HK certainly has a couple advanced movement options and skips but one of the best things it had over Dread for me is that at no point did I ever feel like I was wrestling with the controls, it’s almost a constant reminder in the other game, aiming while moving can be finicky, even after infinite jumps they can still be a bit finicky due to their arc, the fuxking sprint which needs to hold down the analog stick and then down for shine spark which is also finicky as fuck, especially in mid air, being just better to not touch anything so that it doesn’t fuck up at times, the whole missile/alternate fire selection thing having you hold a separate button, etc etc etc, I mean sure, you do settle down after a couple hours of play, but it never felt 100% comfortable

      Cool. I accidentally did a sequence break and got cross bombs early.

      That’s weird cause I bought Hollow Knight and completed it whereas I got Metroid for free and dropped it after 10 minutes. It’s not bad, it’s just a phone game. Anyway, to this day those are the only two of this "metroidvania" style game I have ever played. So I can pretty much objectively state HK > Metroid – and I didn’t even like HK that much.

        You played one Metroid game and one Castlevania game then, and you like Castlevania better.

      >subpar shit game which would be forgotten if it came out on any other console or pc gets talked about for weeks by tendies

      Serious question why are they like this? Who the fuck discusses a phone game this much? Nintendocult fuckers
