      I would agree with you if games nowadays were well-designed and not overinflated to shit with bullshit mechanics 90% of which can be safely skipped. How the frick am I gonna know what the good mechanics are if not from the wiki or a guide?
      I get that it's better to experience the game on your own and learn to prioritize what brings you the most fun but it shouldn't take you 10+ hours just to learn the basic mechanics, which in most AAA games is absolutely the case.

        Name 3, so we can all laugh at how stupid you are.
        AAA games are simple and rarely ever have have truely hidden mechanics. Even a game like elden ring has all basic mechanics explained, with only advanced dodging techniques unexplained but due to the intuitiveness of them you would have to be brain dead to not discover them(jump and crouch dodging). If you were talking about something like graviteam or dominions or crusader kings, yes ten hours is what it takes to grasp basic mechanics. If you require that long for the basic mechanics of a AAA game, you should just put down the controller and watch TV.

      I balance it based on if anything can be missed vs the length of the game
      I'm happy to play blind if I can do a chapter select to grab what I missed later on. I'm happy for things to be missable if the game is short.
      You give me a 100+ JRPG with no NG+, missable items, and decisions that can prevent you from even 100%ing the game if you pick "wrong", I'm having some kind of spoiler free guide open to the side to check before moving to a new area.

        What's strange is that there are clearly games made for the last 20-something years that are designed to avoid this shit because devs know we hate it, but you STILL have some companies put this shit in for dumb reasons.
        Replay value hasn't been a thing journalists will shit on your game for not having since games started being 40 hours long as the norm back in the year 2000, and trying to put obscure shit in to sell guides is also an outdated idea since around that time too.

      Dead Rising 1 is fairly challenging to do going in blind starting at level 1
      Dead Rising 2 is far easier to save most survivors and still get the overtime ending on your first run. The only things you might miss are the more hidden scenarios like Snowflake and the Tape It or Die group.

    the game is intentional built like that so you can build progressive mastery up to that perfect run.
    The early runs are an exercise in letting go and helping you understand that you will have to invest more in the game before it invests more in you (content). Learning to focus on the things you can control and let go of those you cannot

      This, you can literally experience all the content within the game timer if you level up, play the game, and learn to optimize the run, and pulling it off feels amazing.

    Dead Rising is the biggest pile of dog shit I've ever played. Every game mechanic is universally hated in other games, but boomers still prop it up because they played it when it was new and it was edgy at the time of release. It has literally DOG SHIT to offer first time players today.

            Which are? I played DR2 religiously back in the day (multiple playthroughs etc) and DR1 just seemed like a downgrade to me. It's not a "less is more" thing, but simply "less is less" if you understand what I'm saying.
            The sandbox in DR2 is much more forgiving. DR1 if you get stuck in a bossfight without resources, you're fricked. DR2 gives you a chance at survival if you know how to use the sandbox to your advantage.

            >I’m talking about 3 & 4 where they made the games moron-proof.
            yeah, 3 was disappointing. Never even finished, even though a friend bought it for me on PC.
            4 does not exist for me. It's just not dead rising.

              2 locking your final speed upgrade behind a pre-order/DLC piece of clothing was pretty shitty
              There’s also certain really good combo weapons that just become the de facto strategy (Nail Bat, Defiler, Knife Gloves, Laser Sword) due to how readily you get the parts for them which discourages playing around with other things.

              Not deal-breakers, but those are a couple nitpicks I generally come back to.

                To get Chuck’s speed comparable to endgame DR1 Frank you need a piece of the Sports Fan outfit which was available as a pre-order bonus or paid DLC.

                Yeah, Knife Gloves are basically to DR2 what the mini-chainsaw is to DR1. An overpowered weapon where you practically never need to use anything else. The difference is that Knife Gloves are available practically from the very start of the game and are so easily replaced that you don't need to waste slots on three books.

        Except the game is piss easy. Just dodge zombies, follow the arrow, occasionally fight a boss. That's literally the whole dog shit. The fact that you think THAT comes down to skill says more about you.

    Every Dead Rising game which doesn't have a timer gets panned, whilst the ones with it people still love.
    Yes, those other games have other problems, but maybe those problems start from losing a core mechanic of the game to build around.
    Off the Record even added the sandbox mode with zero timer or hunger mechanics to just dick around with, and other than a bunch of short (timed) challenges to try and get gold medals on, it kind of gets boring quickly due to a lack of direction and really only benefits as an area to casually grind out the remaining achievements and money farming.
