People understand you, they simply aren't agreeing with you. Seriously stop derailing every thread regarding stuff that us dumb sheeple like.
ill sum up my gripe here (since it is apparently hard to understand):
then i'm getting trolled. how ironic for once.
you... go around flowers, collecting petals. with each petal, the size of your entity (wind of petals or whatever it is) increases with more petals. this is exactly the same thing that happens in snake; you "eat" "food" and get a larger tail. that they added exploration and other such features has no effect on the core gameplay, even if it does have an effect on the player experience.
Dude I'm glad I don't have such a shitty way to look at games as you do.
I wonder what you thought about shadow of the colossus.. a pretentious zelda with only bossfights? fucking hipsters...
how about Rez, a shitty 90ies style on-rails shooter?
minecraft.. just blockwars but with less shapes to play with and indie pixel graphics.. ugh notch is such a hipster faggot
literally every game takes core mechanics from somethign else. every game is an iteration on something else. literally every art form ever does this ever!!!
i am very aware of this and i'm also at peace with it. there's a lot of games that have improved good concepts, and this is nothing if not good progress. i have also seen indie games do good with improvement of concepts, and i commend them for it. what i'm against is the people marketing/selling/showcasing it as unique and original.
But I think you should watch this. You'll really like it:
no, not really. even if their statement holds some merit, their games are of the same caliber as flow or flower or journey, and i can't say i have enjoyed them nor been immersed into their worlds. and i think the same thing would happen in games from thatgamecompany. but contrary to thatgamecompany, these guys at least tell it like it is, which is what i would expect from any decent person.
that comparison is such a stretch. how are these games anything alike gameplay-wise? does the tail in flower affect the gameplay in any way? (unlike snake)
true, but it's still very comparable to snake, even if it doesn't bring on the difficulty of it.
