The best metroidvanias? I mean HollowRabi like

What's the next best HollowRabi like game?
Metroidvania is an outdated term now that these two games, Hollow Knight and Rabi-Ribi have become the new pillars and trend setters of the genre. I'm sorry but Metroid or Castlevania boomer games have aged badly

        I cleared godmaster, the slow as frick traversal and poke jump poke combat have nonexistent variation, beyond looking pretty hollow knight has absolutely nothing going for it. you have shit taste and your thread will not last the night

          Less is more in the case of hollow knight. Bosses are designed with those simple player mechanics and are allowed to go all out while also giving you some windows to do some cool shit. You won't find bosses as satisfying as pure vessel, Nightmare King Grimm or Sly to fight in any other metroidvania game. Rabi-Ribi fills a completely different niche, that great feeling of avoiding cool looking attack patterns like in your CC runs.

          rabi ribi is not a metroidvania. It's a 2D platformer mimicking tohou bullet hells with an overworld as the way to move around.
          You're an absolute homosexual for being this deliberately obtuse.

          yup looks like a metroidvania to me

            all of those points are wrong, hollow knight bosses are boring as frick. there is nothing satisfying about pogo jumping on every single boss’s head. game is shit, buggay.

              We can both play this game. Just admit you have no argument. Both games are amazing and I'm sorry you got filtered.

                i just looked it up and there are 3 spells. 6 if you want to be dumb and count to obvious copy and paste upgrades. meanwhile in rabi ribi there are 6 unique ranged attacks both with a rapid fire and charge mechanic and this isn't counting all the extra hammer attacks and the bomb. and nail boy can swing forward and down. amazing.

                Took you a lot of posts to admit you didn't play the game. You should try again. Some radiant fights do come close to the extreme levels of difficulty in Rabi Ribi and actually require you to use everything

                >y-you have no argument!
                my argument is that hollow knight is slow as frick and has mind-numbingly boring combat all the way through godmaster, and its upgrades do nothing to augment traversal in a meaningful way. it came out at the height the souls series’ popularity, when every game wanted to rip it off, and hollow knight is no exception. i’d rather play two hours of something like metroid dread’s buttery smooth movement and feel like I’ve accomplished something, rather than crawling back and forth across the absolute dogshit that is hallownest. search action gays always think bigger always means better, but reddit shite is the definition of bloat.

      I still don't get the hype for Hollow Knight. I dropped it after a few hours.
      Rabi Ribi is based though.

      >posers and redditord trying too hard to fit in because the game has anime aesthetic
      kek literally none of you have played either HK or Rabi-Ribi
      Next you're going to try and tell me Tevi was a good game. Fricking posers man I hope that 50 years in the future posters will be required to post DNA proof of playing before participating in videogame threads on the Ganker equivalent

      The enemies are not nearly varied enough. And sometimes timestop works really weirdly with knives. I remember struggling for a while because stuck-in-wall knives are picked up (and not tangible platforms) during stopped time for some reason.

    >some other good charm gimmicks like baldur shield
    and despite that people still somehow claim the combat is nothing but the poke. i dont think anyone who claims this has actually played the game beyond the first 1/10th of it

    for some pantheon fights, specially all bindings, i straight up rarely ever use the normal slash over CAs and spells

      Who the frick uses the nail techniques? They're slow as frick to use and it's a million times easier to just mash attack next to bosses since they hardly do anything anyways.
      And spells are more or less just bonus damage since you can't spam them freely and if you're shit at the game you'd not use them in favor of having more healing.
      >i dont think anyone who claims this has actually played the game beyond the first 1/10th of it
      The pantheon fights show more than anything that Hollow knight bosses are quantity > quality, They repeat all the 2 or 3 attacks unique to them that are piss easy to dodge and punish.

        >Who the frick uses the nail techniques?
        people who are smart and realise they are good
        90% of radiant difficulty related seethe in bosses like markoth are not realising something can be trivialized by combat arts, for example
        great slash and dash slash arent as good for dps but the mechanical utility is great, cyclone can still do great burst damage
        >spells are more or less just bonus damage
        frickhuge bonus damage that can very well outperform the nail, or if someone is bad at the game, can be made to increase the overall safety by a massive ammount so it still compensates them

        >bosses are quantity over quality
        its almost like they are more dynamic than the entire fricking genre. Its almost like theres absolutely zero other metroid-likes with bosses that compare with duels like pure vessel or even hornet 2. Its almost like there are several bosses with vast movesets that are mixed in with the not-so-cool half because said half isnt a major boss, but are still more interactive than anything in the genre anyway

        But no, people will find a way to whine about anything in this board. Several of the best bosses in the genre? nah theres 60 of them so its all quantity over quality. Huge map filled with great rewards, quests and non-linear progression where the meme rewards like rotten eggs and grubs account for only 1/50 of the playtime? nah its too many dozen hours long so its bloated.

        i wish you all a very have a nice day

          LMAO. Hollow shite bosses are a snoozefest.
          >Huge map filled with great rewards
          Oh boy 1/3rd of a health upgrade! can't wait to find it again a dozen times!
          >quests
          quests about as deep as dark souls "talk to npc" and then "talk to same npc but in different area". The only interesting "quest" in the whole game was delivering the flower without getting hit.
          >and non-linear progression
          It feels like half the game is barred behind certain upgrades and the only non-linearity comes from using tricks like pogoing off and enemy or vase to skip to other areas.

          >with duels like pure vessel or even hornet 2
          People who hype up bosses as "duels" sound like shitters who had fun losing to an easy as frick boss. You hear the same kind of "OMG their like duels!" shit from soulsgays when they hype up their trash

    I don't get the massive butthurt any sort of positivity towards HK generates here. Sure, if you played through all the metroidvanias under the sun before, there is nothing new for you to see, but it all comes together really well. And if you want to compare it to the classics, you gotta have really selective memory about the depth of mechanics there. Unless you wanna tell me that crouching attacks are still an integral of igavanias, and not a legacy of classicvanias? Do you miss fightan special inputs on spells and weapons?
    I just find it pathetic that every other mention of HK is followed by "reddit knight" instead of a coherent point. The movement feels too slow, the style is too cute, the enemies are too simple — these things are understandable, but such fundamental dealbreakers that there's even less reason to argue than usual. So starts the song and dance of "underage"-"filtered"-"shill".
    Please look forward to the day Silksong comes out a massive IF right there lol and half the board is filled with threads about it.
