      FTL clearly is a roguelike. People who try to gatekeep random games based on their own random MAGA-like opinions are the cancer.

      [...]
      FTL was and continues to be the only 10/10 game of the genre. It's sad no-one has ever made anything like it again. Such a damn amazing gem. They could have, and should have kept expanding on the same idea.

      [...]
      Right? It's like DBD. Or The Matrix movie. Or the OG Star Wars, Alien and Predator movies. Sometimes a group of thoughts and devs/directors and staff get something so right without actually understanding how they did it, and fail to ever produce it again. It's a shame.

      Fucking filtered. Into the Breach is peak tactics kino.

        Ftl is a starship management game with no continues and minor rpg aspects. It's not a roguelike at all. But, whatever. I know explaining what the fuck a eoguelike is to people is a fight that was lost years ago.

          You are literally arguing against facts. Hence the MAGA-commentary. I don't get why you people do this. This is like saying Street Fighter is not a fighter game. Or CS is not an FPS. Or that FF14 is not an MMO. Whether you *feel* like FTL is a roguelike or not is irrelevant, it IS. Now if you feel it in your opinoin shouldn't be, that's another matter. That can be debated. But not the fact that it factually is, indeed, a roguelike.

            Not them but FTL is not like Rogue, therefore is not a Roguelike. Just because Wikipedia says it, doesn't mean it's true. Wikipedia just simply doesn't have a page for Roguelites yet, because it's not completely accepted within the industry.
            Also, if FTL is a Roguelike, then XCOM 2 is also considered a roguelike by the exact same logic

              Language is descriptive and not prescriptive, so if a term is used wrongly enough its meaning changes.
              The best example is how people misused 'literally' so much that it's now acceptable to use the word for emphasis.

        And that's fine for something like these somewhat simple games. It was clear Into the Breach was too LITTLE rng. It's practically a puzzle game. There is almost always objectively a best move you can plan out X many turns into the future. The only RNG is what the AI will do and that quickly becomes predictable, or even something to manipulate.

        Darkest Dungeon is the complete opposite end of the spectrum, which FLT, or maybe Isaac somewhere in the comfortable middle. DD sucks because there's such huge consequence for bad rolls, the strategy is basically to make as few rolls as possible, ignoring all of the curios. Meanwhile FTL or Isaac have comfortable risk/reward. Can't know everything in advance, and it makes repeated runs unpredictable, but amusing to see what sort of builds will become viable given the circumstances.

        So now there are some proper boundaries set, developers can better target the scale on the middle ground.

        All their immediate sequels were fine and arguably better in SW's and Alien's case

          I think he meant old movies vs. new movies. Because the SW prequels were mostly bad, and same with the new Alien movies. Although honestly, Alien only had two good movies to begin with. 3 and 4 kinda sucked.

          It's very commonly accepted, and certainly by anyone with a refined taste, that the OG Star Wars 4-6 were vastly superior to the later trash that was SW 1-3, not to mention the horrid BS that was SW 7-9. I will give you that Aliens was great, one could even argue that it was on par, or better than Alien. But every Alien movie since has been increasing levels of garbage. Same applies for Predator.

      The Engi B isn't bad if you metagame with it and immediately sell all of your drones at the first store, it's literally 60 bonus scrap right out of the gate. The weapon combo it starts with is amazingly efficient as well.

      Slug B and Slug C are the truly awful ships of FTL, they have zero redeeming qualities whatsoever.

      This is my personal for worst ship
      Not only is it a janky, gimmicky, mess, but the gimmick it tries isn't even fun
      It even ruins what makes stealth A and B fun despite the latter being a bit of a pain to get through sector 1-2 with

    Missiles are bullshit when the ai get them. You're not guaranteed to find any sort of counter beyond upgrading engines, and even if you do have something like drones or missiles of your own, you'll run out fast as shit if you use them while ai ships get 12+ each. Missiles should just be like stronger rocks that do high crew damage but don't bypass shields instead of the ship-bleeding bullshit that they are.
    Fire beam is my sexy laserfu though

      Engi B's saving grace is that things start getting better if you get a crew event
      It might have a lower total win rate than other bad ships, but the other bad ships have more problems, just less severe ones. Like, it at least has a functioning weapons system, something that can't be said for all the other bottom 5 ships in the game

      Missiles wouldn't be so bad if the hard AI didn't target critical systems with them every time. It's easy to have the first sector go sideways when they take out your guns in an alpha strike, though by the time you get to sector 3-4 you usually get a countermeasure for missiles.

      I wish there was a ship that had a module that downgraded all systems damage by 1 or something similar as part of its kit, would make the game more reliable in that aspect.
