      Why would you rename it to the newer thing that took inspiration from the older thing? They’re called 2D platformers anyways not whatever meme name retards comes up with.

      Thanks to Hollow Knights 40+ hour play time. I never want to ever go back and play it again.
      But Metroid. I go back to Super, Zero Mission, Fusion, and the Prime games ever year.

          Except it’s literally nothing to do with Nintendo. I do the same with Castlevania. Those are short too.
          Short. Sweet. Concise. Hollow Knight on the other hand. The map is fucking huge and most of it has nothing in it.
          Hollow knight isn’t a bad game by any means. But I’m not going back to it.

              Hollow Knight was bought the most on the tendie machine. So it makes no sense. HK fans just want to feel superior and claim HK is the best metroidvania to ever exist.

                    Why the fuck would it matter to a Snoy if a multiplatform game was better than a nintendo game? Pull your head out of your ass.

                        That sounds like someone else is at play.
                        Almost like Snoys were never actually the demographic you all actually hate but the real demographic manages to deceive you into thinking everything they did was Snoy’s doing.

                        It’s as if Ganker forgot shitposting has no allegiance.

      How the fuck do you make an 8 hour metroidvania game? Symphony of the Night was at least 20 hours and that was like 25 years ago. There are gameboy games longer than that.

      Everyone in this thread is a drooling retard. The reason for this fabricated rivalry is to bait and anger Nintendo fanboys. Anyone who can’t see that is legitimately borderline retarded. The thing is though that there are so many shitposters trying to stir up shit that actual discussion gets brought up. Back when HK released you had so many people calling it genre defining. A bunch of e-celebs saying things like they felt like they should have payed more for it because it had so much content packed into a $15 game and that they don’t know how other games in the same genre would ever be able to compete again. HK got it’s deserved praise. Didn’t it win best indie or something along those lines? It was extremely clear that it wasn’t just some industry darling either. It was a fan favorite for a lot of people. Now that is being used to bait the toddlers. It seems to have been working too because they can’t really refute that it is a good game without blatantly lying. For every 5 bait posts there is 1 angry console war loyalist losing his shit. They are the same people getting mad that people emulate Nintendo games. It is absolutely hilarious to watch.

      I have a question to everybody that played Metroid Dread:

      does it offer anything in terms of design, gameplay or new ideas that I die Metroidvania games do not? And is there anything in Dread that indie Metroidvanias can not possibly match up to?

        Well New to the metroid series as your progress through the game your actions shift and fuck up prior areas you have already been to. collapsing portions of rooms. Setting prior areas on fire or freezing them. Lifting specialized tunnels after defeating the Emmi’s. Getting halfway through the game and letting something escape confinement.
        This isn’t new to the metroidvania genre though.
        But you don’t need a game to reinvent the wheel every iteration. you just need it to be good.

          Yeah I know, but I just wanted to see if there is anything in this game that would make me want to buy a Switch and pay the price of a Call of Duty title for it when I could get a comparable experience from dozens of dirt cheap independent titles on systems I already own.

          And apparently there isn’t.

              It used to be different for me. I bought a PS3 to play Bayonetta. Other Sony exclusives too, but primarily Bayonetta. Then I bought a Wii U for Bayonetta 2.

              There’s just nothing on the Switch for me. Although I will admit I was tempted, but maybe this time even Bayonetta 3 won’t sell me the Switch – especially given that Nintendo has the nerve to still sell the other two games for the price of a brand new pre-order. And then cocksuckers defend them.

          Metroid dread went out of it’s way to program special interactions with bosses if you use equipment you technically shouldn’t have access to yet.
          It was intentionally built with Sequence breaking in mind. Which is fucking hilarious because the Director of the previous games despised that people busted open his game so much that ever since Fusion he’s been trying to make Metroid unable to sequence break. And failed.
