          As someone who played hollow knight and did enjoy it, there's a lot of bloat and padding to it, especially if you try for certain endings.
          It's also hilarious when people use this site as an argument, because literally every single game has different criteria for how they score each category. Dread is clearly using in game timer to show time, rather than actual clock, and clearly has a different definition of completionist, as it requires a bare minimum of 2 runs to complete the gallery in the game, and realistically, at least 3 runs as there's almost no chance you qualify for the complete gallery for normal mode on your first playthrough, especially if you're going for 100%, which is also needed for other gallery unlockables.

        Not only that, $15 multiplat that's gone on sale multiple times available for over 3 years sold MARGINALLY better than $60 exclusive from a company notorious for not doing sales until the tail end of a console's life after only a year of sales

    It's a singleplayer game for one. And it's much more action oriented than exploration heavy so there's little to discuss beyond tiny fragments of lore and the bossfights

        no, genuine metroidvanias. there are heaps of them. I'd rather play la mulana, ori, hk, etc than dread. it's just boring. I'm sick of that genre in general, make an actual 2d platformer already.

            the bosses are fun which is more than I can say for ANY metroid game and some of the platforming segments are preddy gud. its inconsistent in its quality but mostly good overall.

              The bosses are repetitive, boring souls shit, with i-frame dodges and regular attack spam. And the platforming is awful. I can’t believe it doesn’t even have momentum, yet it still relied so heavily on platforming

                most platformers dont have momentum. mega man doesnt and X/Zero have hard speed caps with your movement comes to a full stop it you let go of forward, even in the air. this is a staple of all those NES/SNES platformers and most arcade games. basically everything but Mario and Sonic.

          I feel the same but I'm fully expecting to still enjoy MP5 because they have a vastly different type of gameplay than the 2D games.
          They're just much more immersive and feel like they've got more going for them than the other Metroid games or 2D metroidvanias in general.

        Hunters is extremely formulaic. The online multiplayer was fun though, but I bet if it was released today it'd be unplabyable because of today's playerbase.
        And Fusion is amazing. It's only hated by speedtrannies.

          Fusion is also hated by fans of the Metroid genre for it's insane linearity and handholding.

            Don't care. The moment a new path is discovered and is faster then it's the new linear path.
            >and handholding.
            It gave you a general direction and then you had to find your way there. In the first missions it's mostly accurate, but later on it's used for the narrative, like

            >Samus, go to this download station ez pz, extremely near the entrance of this section of the ship
            >and indeed it was
            >then it takes a huge detour to be able to go back because the X destroyed the path you just took

            >Samus go to this spot
            >sounds easy
            >well except the doors are all locked, you'll have to find another way to get there

            and so on. It elevates the narrative, another reason why it's so great. Worse in repeated playthroughs though, but that's another section entirely, unless one pretends that the only thing a game is good for is being replayed (again, a speedchud).

    Metroid Dread was initially a 2005 game, and we don't need a sequel.
    I rather they make a new game built on the progress they made between Samus Return and Dread. It was a big gameplay leap, and I'm fine waiting 5+ more years for a Metroid game if it was as fun as Dread.

      I get easily defensive over Prime because it's one of those games that I've been chasing the same feeling of wonder I get when I play it and have been unsatisfied since MP3. The series is the perfect type of game for me and nothing else has come even close to even reaching the same atmosphere/experience. My only hope is for Prime 4 and considering how it's not made by the same people that made 1/2/3 I'm probably going to be vastly dissapointed, but I'm still holding onto hope for the sake of my 8 year old self.

      This is some low IQ cope. Plenty of single player games that are 10+ years old are still discussed frequently both on here and other sites. The fact of the matter is that Dread is a short, average, and completely forgettable game, hence why only the most diehard of Metroid consoomers still try to force it into conversations.

        This. Some will claim it trivializes the game, but I argue Metroid Prime was never really about combat difficulty in the first place. The movement and aim simply feels more natural than the GC or Wii controls, and you're feeling that smooth control constantly.

      I disagree, if anything Dread's soundtrack is overrated. Between the unmemorable compositions, poor soundfont choices and absolutely abysmal use of music to establish appropriate atmosphere in certain parts of the game (Elun in particular is absolutely horrible for this) I would not only say it's a bad OST by Metroid standards, but a pretty poor OST in general. Even the tiny handful of standout tracks like Burenia only really stand out in the first place because of just how unimpressive the rest is rather than them simply being that good.

      Because retards think sales is a measurement of quality when their are plenty of cases of good games selling poorly and bad games selling well. It doesn’t help that game companies will market games like shit and then get upset that their game only sold 5 million units instead of 6.

        Part of this is because AAA graffix whoring has become completely unsustainable financially, and the fact most AAA studios spend the money they EXPECT a game to make long before it actually comes out. If you spent as if the game would sell 6 million, doesn't matter how low budget the game is if it only sells 5.

    For anyone who doesn't know, eric is a rabid snoy who has been active since at least 2017, but has been most well known after he accidentally doxed himself in 2018 while defending mighty number 9. He was doing this because he thought mega man 11 was a switch exclusive, so he had to defend the knock off that was also on playstation for sony's "honor". Last year, he started using his gay fucking victor trip because he legitimately thinks despite his posting style being immediately recognizable to anyone with an iq above a moron goldfish, this will somehow trick people. He also samefags constantly, and has on several occasions had long conversations with himself, switching the trip on and off every post. Unless he forgets, hastily deletes it, and then reposts the same fucking thing and then claims the archives of the thread are fake.

            It was a mismanaged disaster that tried to turn it into a multimedia empire series before they even were close to shipping the actual game. The actual game wound up being a glitchy mess of terrible ideas implemented equally poorly that was clearly made on a shoestring budget despite massive funding because they blew all their money on trying to get tv shows and merchandise off the ground long before they had an alpha ready.

            Because eric incorrectly thought mega man 11 was switch exclusive though, he HAD to defend the (multiplatform) mighty number 9 and "prove" its superiority.

                Yeah, at 240p, 9fps. I wouldn't call that "running" the witcher 3, would you?

                but it can run P5R just fine

                I’m a PChad, and even I know P5 runs natively on the switch.

                Do you know how emulation works? You need a pretty good PC to be able to run ps2 emulators. The Ps4 probably couldn’t do it.

    I tried the demo just now, it seems very well made but no way a medium length, single playthrough metroidvania is worth more than 20 bucks.

        I'm assuming the first retard playthrough will end around the 8 hour mark at best, the rest will be speed running?

          8 hour in game timer
          It doesn't count any time in a menu or when you die after a boss fight, you're looking at around 10 hours on average for an actual first playthrough, without going out of your way to 100%.
          Then I did a 100% hard mode playthrough
          Then I did a couple pseudo speedruns on each difficulty for the gallery unlocks
          Then I did a few more fun runs, like hardmode and grabbing as few powerups as I could, sequence breaks, etc
          Then I did one more when dread mode came out, wouldn't really recommend it
          And then a shit ton of time in boss rush

            Yeah, Dread has a lot of replayability. It’s a very fun game, but personal game of the 2020s so far.

    Why don't you check the numbers. It's the best selling game in the entire series.

        More like below 50 if you unironically believe nintendo faked numbers they had to show to their investors.

    It's the best selling Metroid game of all time and is wildly popular with Metroid fans, with many even saying it rivals or surpasses Super in some ways. In what would is that a flop?

    Remember this the next time he tries his "uhhhh, actually eric doesn't exist" schtick, or his more recent "uhhhh, actually if you complain about me, I mean him, you're just as bad, actually probably worse" routine.

      What compels a person to do this shit? I'm not the most neurotypical guy myself but this is going 10 miles out of your own way to be cringe. If Eric is actually his real name, maybe shut the fuck up and hope some retard doesn't make it their life's mission to dox you like that anon who said his sister did porn.

            If eric was smart enough to walk away, he wouldn't have doxed himself over defending mighty number 9, solely because he saw mighty number 9 vs mega man 11 as a proxy fight between Sony and Nintendo.
