If every normal person really cares about how attractive characters are and how "woke" they are, then why do games like Horizon, GOW, BG3, Hades, and more routinely sell 20x more than games like Stellar Blade, the tons of fanservice games, etcetera? You can't use exclusivity as an excuse for Stellar Blade either seeing as Horizon is also exclusive.

      yea it probably just comes down to marketing. If the Returnal granny was a hot babe the game wouldn't sell any better.

      So what you're saying is these games are marketed a ton to millions, and all those said millions of people like or don't care about how attractive the characters are to them? Would Stellar Blade and others sell more than GOW and BG3 is it was marketed as much as them?

              That number is physical copies only. It probably sold twice as much including digital. You also have to consider that Stellar Blade's developer forgot that PS5 doesn't have a strong heterosexual male audience. That demographic is mostly on PC.

    It still sold less then the first game. And more people bought the game on ps4 then PS5 to shun the ps5 $70 dollar price hike. Also bundles and now it's on PC.
    Stellar Blade is stuck to ps5 where only spiderman 2 sold 10 million. PC version will help it, could have Nier Automata sales legs but unlikely without the sony first party marketing and good word of mouth.

                The enemies are so aggressive in remnant that iframing incoming damage is required. It's impossible to dodge that much and snap aim critical damage zones on controller without a heavy reliance on aim assist. It's not impossible if you turn off aim assist and build around gear that amplifies damage that isn't weakspot damage, but you are pigeonholed into a playstyle where every weapon plays like a shotgun at all diatances. It's still a fricking fantastic game and was in my top 3 games of 2023 with Lies of P and RE4.

              I played HZD back in January on PC and I thought it was pretty “meh”.
              The graphics are amazing for a PS4 game but the story and characters were low-tier and the only interesting story bits were in the flashbacks. It’s a surprisingly short (~30 hours) game for an open-world. The setting could be interesting but again the story writing doesn’t allow it to live up to its potential. Combat was interesting at first but I’d rather play Monster Hunter.

      It is definitely overhated. Compared to shit like rdr2 which plays like complete ass the horizon franchise is like mon hun for babies crossed with western AAA (ubisoft/naughty dog) DNA. If you're a lifelong gamer it holds your hand too much and takes control away from your character with magnetic animations. If you're a casual then this is literally one of the greatest franchises you will ever play. It sure as hell is better than other casual franchises like spiderman. I don't give a shit about the story and themes. It's a game not a book.
