          While I found that the aesthetics and the lore of Hollow Knight appealed more to myself, I could see someone with a greater interest in Sci-Fi to enjoys Super Metroid. Personally I never loved Symphony of the Night. I wasn't a fan of the way they incorporated RPG aspects. Relatively speaking it's essentially the exact same form of progression as the other two, Symphony of the Nights way of portraying those stats just takes me out of the moment a lot more.

          I know "Loneliness and Isolation" is supposed to be a sort of thematic trend for Metroid but I think the series would benefit more if they scattered some Federation survivors and researchers among the Chozo Ruins or Space Pirate bases.

          It's the description on the Badge you get for finding them all and then "Metamorphosis" is the name of the Achievement

            I figured as much, but I was more wondering if it's based on a real bug or whatever

              Not really. There isn't a bug that eats it's own young as part of metamorphosis that I'm aware of. Some solitary Wasp species however lay their eggs inside caterpillars and then the larva eat it's innards before bursting out before they pupate into adult Wasps.

        It's a very fair an doable fight, I really enjoyed it. I kept catching myself lasting longer and longer.

      this is the type of boss i'd call a "dance" boss which is perfectly fitting for the theme he has going.
      I would define a "dance" boss that is all about responding to individual moves in quick succession and punishing you for responding in time. It's kind of like a rhythm game in that sense.
      The opposite of a "dance" boss would be a boss where individual moves matter little, but it's all about how you position and manage your resources over the whole duration of the fight

        Yeah. I did Nightmare King very easily, to the point I was sort of disappointed. Meanwhile Zote kicked my ass over and over because he has zero rhythm, it's all about predicting how his bullshit moves are going to individually intersect to frick you over.

      The sequel Momodora Moonlit Farewell is about twice as long.

      Most metroidvanias are pretty short what's the problem?

      >Most metroidvanias are pretty short what's the problem?
      Ehh, not really. Super Metroid is 8 hours and I would argue that it one of the shorter games, the Castlevania's are all around 10 hours. Most big name Metroidvania's like Ender Lilies, Ori, Blasphemous, Salt and Sanctuary Bloodstained and so on are like 10-18h and Hollow Knight and Afterimage are what I would single out as long games at over 20 hours. Those are just straight playthroughs, some of these games have 100% lengths of 30-40 hours.
      Momodora RutM along with Touhou Luna Nights and Deedlit are what I would call extra short Metroidvania's, 3 hours to beat, maybe add an extra hour to 100% complete. I like them but anon is not wrong for calling them unusually short.

          My numbers come from "How long to beat", not my individual play times so it's the average that is slow.

          >ori
          >10-18 hours
          you're smoking crack, ori 1 is the only metroidvania out of the dozens i've played that i felt had a genuinely disappointing lack of content, taking a grand total of 8 hours to 100% (doing everything/finding all upgrades on one file, didn't do a deathless run). i've heard ori 2 is better but the first game left such a bad taste in my mouth.

          >you're smoking crack,
          My first play time was about 10 hours with 100% item completion, I just checked my latest playthrough on my Deck and it is 5h 38m with all pickups. Bit proud of that actually, didn't think it would be that low.
          Judging how long a game is, is a difficult task, if you've played and beaten the game a bunch surely your experienced and optimized run is going to be faster than when you were wandering about your first playthrough not entirely sure of what to do, getting lost and dying here and there.
          Not like we judge games by their speed runs or Super Mario Bros would be a 4min 54sec game.

      I definitely wouldn't go into Rain World expecting the same sort of feeling you get out of Hollow Knight. One of RainWorlds big appeals is the sense of a journey but also a weird Ecology. You're not the "Hero" you're just another species in a world filled with lots of things that could easily kill and eat you and do. You don't get powers ups, your only source of improvement is your personal knowledge on how to deal with the settings dangers.

      I personally never clicked into it but I understand why it has such a hardcore fanbase. It's a very unique experience.

      rain world is pretty unique but you really need to play the game with 100% attention to progress through the game. it's a true labyrinth of death with no real objective at first, there was a 10 hour stretch I didn't have a fricking clue where I was going.
      it controls well, looks beautiful, and challenges you with a pseudo random enemy generation. I never beat it cause I keep getting stuck in the same spot but it's the kind of game you learn something new every time you play
