    That's the universal take on it, it's literally a meme game made by that meme dev team

    I think it had charm but overall it's a boring chore simulator.

      A friend of mine really liked it, but I tried it and was bored out of my mind. Seems like you just go around doing chores, also the characters are ugly af

      >chore :o)
      You can describe every game like that, especially CRPGs. Obviously you're expected to like the general tone of the game

        Games are supposed to be challenging. A chore is just busywork. You cannot describe every game like that and be accurate. Consider a dictionary.

          There are different forms of difficutly and not every game should be Dark Souls. Difficulty can be trial and error, exploration or self-imposed perfectionism, like when you get greedy and just try to get the last spirit or yellow block in time, very similar to Pikmin or Chulip

            >something is boring and calling it a chore is valid whatever I have to say is irrelevant as it does not pertain to anything said prior, I'm bad at following conversations; I just speak my unwanted mind explaining basic trivialities as a substitute for an actual response
            Duly noted.

            >Games are supposed to be challenging.
            Genuinely challenging games require practice in order to get good at them
            The process of practicing a challenging game could very easily be described as a chore
            Why you find THIS chore fun, but not THAT chore, is up to your brain chemicals to play mental gymnastics with
            But it's all chores. That's all video games are. Chores that you find fun For Some Reason.

            >I disagree with you
            Well okay.

                Your implying my misunderstanding is somehow valid just cause you said so. As I said: 'basic trivialities [do not] substitute for an actual response'

          Not the hardest game ever but still the best "normal contemporary environment but player is small so everything else is actually big" game, which makes it good out of the gate

          Something tells me you are the same guy calling all Nintendo games boring including Mario, so you finding a game boring is a bit like a seal of quality

      Okaeri is the only true sequel, everything else is a cash in trying to do something with the IP.

        Park Patrol was a different take on the series and was interesting. A different spin on the concept. A local park needs care instead of a home. An environmental message. Hardly a cash in considering how small and niche the series is.

      Was the DS sequel ever translated? I tried playing it back in the day but I got stuck and didn't know wtf to do since literally nobody played the game and there were no walkthroughs

    I honestly thought Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door was the best in the Paper Mario series, even though people say Super Paper Mario is the best

    LOL: Lack of Love on the Sega Dreamcast is basically this game, but actually good.

      Just because they share a few people working on them doesn't mean they are basically the same. They don't play the same at all and don't give you remotely the same vibes, which frankly is the most important thing with these games. Wtf is wrong with Sega fags on this board and why can't they just ignore Nintendo-related threads

      Amazing soundtrack as well.
      Dare I say... the greatest game to come from the Love le Dick circle?

    did it sell like shit??
    i remember reading tons of positive reviews when it dropped
    i had even been on the lookout for a used copy around that time

    never found one as gamestop in my area was pricing used stuff literally 6-9$ cheaper than new and had a pitiful inventory

    I loved Chibi Robo growing up. It's hard to play as an adult, though - it's terribly slow. Maybe I'll give it another spin one day. Amazing OST though.

      I usually dislike slow games but I was hooked with Chibi Robo, game just oozes SOUL, and there's enough variety and secrets to the level design to keep things fresh and fun. Only real annoyance was how much they hit you with way too many pointless text pop-ups.

    Dreamcast was the best sixth-gen system. PS2 is mostly a shovelware machine which people only bought to watch DVDs on and has very few actual 8/10 and above games.

    There's a big difference between saying "I like a game" and "It's an objectively good game," and saying "It was good for its time" doesn't mean a game is objectively good. Modern standards can very fairly inform whether or not an old game is objectively good.
    It's not an unpopular opinion, but even if Street Fighter 1 might have been excellent for its time, it's a bad fucking game.

    All of that said, my actual hot take is this:
    System Shock 2 is not a good game. It's unbalanced at least as far as that many builds aren't worth it to attempt at all and are slapped-on like afterthoughts, it's retardedly short, the meandering back and forth is unfun, the SS1 segment leading up to the Shodan fight is too short to be interesting and the Shodan fight is trivially easy.
