This will become a cult classic like God Hand in a few years. What a gem of a game.
Baby's first contrarianism. Try harder.
Nah that anon sees the game industry see a low hanging fruit (a passion project made with soul that tries something different), its the same end of the curve as them mindlessly deifying TOKT a 100/100 All time Masterpiece!!!! They have to choose some game as a release valve to mindlessly trash so they choose this one.
It is not a coincidence the game is about a deformed mutant cast off. If you have a remote understanding of psychology, such as the work of Jung, you would understand this.
Gollum is the perfect antidote to TOTK. The A+ student getting taken down by the school freak.
It does feel like journalists collectively pick games to mindlessly shit on about as often as they pick games to mindlessly worship
Yep it's an art game like A Plague Tale, but the modern reviewer is so mind fucked from MUH ROGUELITE WITH DARK SOULS DEVIL MAY CRY COMBAT they can't appreciate something that tries something different.
Gollum has SOUL. That is all that matters.
game journalist are such gays
this board is so predictably contrarian, except for nintendo games which will be shilled no matter how good or bad
writing was on the wall when i saw it was already less than $30 on key sites weeks before it was out
>Gollum is a terrible game.
is it really good
you have to want to like it basically
this review nailed it:
>If you want a game where you stealth kill your way through hordes of works with slick parkour and funky power ups, this aint the game for you. Try shadow of war. But if you want to be a pathetic little creature scampering around in all sorts of filth and muck, its great.
that sounds like fun
>But if you want to be a pathetic little creature scampering around in all sorts of filth and muck, its great.
Has the making of a great game, but does it have the soul to back it up?
is 2 fps enough soul?
>if you want to be a pathetic little creature scampering around in all sorts of filth and muck
nailed the neet life
it's pretty boring very basic puzzle solving, no real combat
What do you think?
Is that, a Game Over screen with a menu in 2023? Instead of starting you from the checkpoint after failure? From 4/10 to 6/10 right there.
it offers a bold and unique look at the world of middle earth that you don't get from the books.
>needs like a 4090 to run well
>looks like an early PS3 game
gollum is the morbius of gaming
this game is funny, piss easy, and depressing all at the same time. only difficulty comes from the framerate shitting itself. 3/10 good shitpost but not worth the money, just buy a cheap steam game
Better game than Elden Ring and ToTK
Unironically the best game I've ever played
so this is what passes for a may may in the year of our lord two thousand and twenty three
its one of the games ever
