    Is hollow knight really that good? I've been meaning to play it, but the fact that is so universally worshipped on Reddit is making me weary. The only games that get that kind of adoration on Reddit are super chudy ones like Undertale.

        Sorry chud-kun, I don't want to spend money in support of some pozzed game beloved by Reddit, and your argument for isn't particularly compelling. If you have any actual reasons why it's so good and not pozzed, I would love to hear them as I'd prefer to have my suHispanicions proven wrong.

            That's actually a good point, thank you Anon.

            Its good its just not the best metroidvania that inexperienced zoomers try to make it out to be. Not even top 3. Might not even be top 5. Its the only metroidvania I have yet to replay.

            Thanks for the qrd, that makes sense.

            Lol I know next to nothing about the game, just that it's a metroidvania style apparently featuring bug knights. However I am certainly capable of noticing things and making mental connections - one of which being that most games that are overwhelmingly positive and have a total cult like following on Reddit - are usually pozzed or have some other glaring issue that the rabid fanbase bans all dialogue about. It's certainly not always the case, but when I consistently see weepy redditors talking about how the game is literally perfect and how it literally changed their life, it makes me weary about purchasing. No game is perfect - only mentally ill terminally online folks (usually trannies) will attach themselves mentally to a piece of media in that way and then proceed to rabidly defend said piece of media like their life depends on it. I mean, look at all the level of frothing at the mouth furious responses I got to simply asking whether or not it was worth playing lol.

              Lmao. No one is frothing at the mouth about you questioning the game. I don’t even like the game that much. It was overlong and had boring movement. But you’re still a complete idiot who needs to do something else with your life (possibly end it)

                So the word pozzed was so triggering that it caused you and your fellow cultists to lash out in vicious rage? Lmao. I assume the real reason was my use of the t word. Sorry you can't downvote me but that's life.

                It’s just a vaguely dark souls-like metroidvania about a collapsed society of bugs. It has zero politics in it, and the two guys who made it are pretty private. Redditers are retarded but they breathe oxygen, and I’m not going to willingly stop doing that just because Reddit does it.

                Thank you for a sane response Anon.

                Trying to turn this around isn't going to work, schizo-kun. You asked if a game that has zero indications of it, either from the game itself or from the devs, is 'pozzed'. The sheer retardation, paranoia and lack of self-sufficiency required for you to even ask that question is plenty of reason for people to tell you to fuck off to whatever hole you crawled out of.

      Posts like this remind me of when Undertale came out and Ganker fucking loved it. There were shitloads of threads about how great it was until it got popular, at which point it was promptly labeled "tumblr garbage" and all discussion was de facto banned by the exact same newfag retards who were praising it to fit in only days prior.
      I genuinely cannot understand what kind of complete and utter social failure you have to be to try and fit in with the cool kids on a fucking ANONYMOUS forum. Seriously, imagine going to a place where every single thing you say is in no way tied to you unless you put a tripcode on, and still being so utterly terrified of having someone call you a gay that you have to self censor yourself and post nothing but things you think are "approved." I don't care if you've ever used Reddit in your life, your mentality is 100% Reddit to its core. Hunting upvotes and karma that doesn't even fucking exist because you're terrified of downvotes that also don't exist.

      moron.

    I don't hate AAA games, I just don't get as excited about them anymore. Even solid titles like new God of War still fall into a formula we've seen countless times because that's what is guaranteed to sell. Emphasizing beautiful graphics and time-consuming odd-jobs over something that really stands out as a unique product.

    Indies can be weird and creative or difficult in a way that won't be nearly as marketable to as big of an audience, but can still stand out in my mind as the more memorable experience.

      I'd guess that and/or Ghibli just by glancing at the roots of the style in Ari Gibson's past work

      Yes.

      The very first official concept arts of HK was way more detailed and was blatantly inspired by Angel's Egg.
