Seems like while the mainstream metacritic score is very high now, some of the shall we say more independent reviewers are thumbing down the game.

Down cos they don't like the story?

Question? Generally what comes first for you all? Gameplay or story?

I am avoiding spoilers but I saw one say too violent, and another say it's an empty story of revenge with poor/little character development.

Gameplay>story. I can play a game with no story if the gameplay is good. I cannot play a good story if there is no gameplay, then it's a visual novel more than a game.

Holy what is this nonsense?

They have gameplay but TT TWD and others closer to visual novels. If not for the IP... the werewolf one better. The GoT one was terribad the most visual novel-ish of all. Maybe it was this downward spiral that caused the death of TT. The most egregious are those puzzle visual novel games I used to play on PS Vita, Zero: No Escape or something.

Cancel culture is rife in USA now. See the AJ saga, some unknown streamer accused AJ of sexual impropriety. 2 years ago at PAX...

PM of Canada kenna for doing blackface when he was a teen. 10-15 years ago?

Even something you did 20-30-40 years ago can still bite you, like Fox News sensationalising Bernie Sanders going to Moscow for his honeymoon when he was a young lad and using that to accuse him of being a Russian agent. 40 years ago.

Cancel Culture is a symptom of the online youth in USA right now that they like to bring down or take down things than applaude it. Passive aggressive or snide comments, open hostility, review bombing, etc they just want to bring down things. I am seriously concerned if this culture is in SG youth.

Kinda sad that this is the direction that ppl are going and with social media, it's amplifying this kinda culture.

In Detroit become human, ppl still consider that not to be gameplay leh even though there are some sections which has that batman investigation thing. One thing I really like about Detroit is they included the flowchart after you completed the chapter. So you could see what you missed or what possibilities are there. Wish heavy rain and beyond 2 souls remastered had that.

Heavy Rain and whatever Quantic Dreams makes is the modern day version of that laserdisc game something Dragon something, PC's Phantasmogoria, 7th Guest, Myst and all the early MegaCD games where you watched a FMV video then pressed a button at specific moments to proceed the FMV or cut to a death FMV.

But QD's games do have abit more than what came before. Have you played the TT GOT game? It has the worst version of TT's games, minimal interaction, minimal consquence.

I only played batman game from ttg.

Sometimes I think maybe it's the cultural differences. I think we are kinda moulded since young to be more acceptable to things unlike the amdk, they feel like they are self entitled to everything I guess.

It's funny to hear ppl say companies do things that no one ask for like as if these companies need to seek approval from this ppl

Indeed. I playing State of Decay 2 on PC and last week the devstream announced an "easy mode" aka Green Zone added to the game for people new to the game to start out at an easier difficulty level, and also shared that only 5% of the player population played the Nightmare Zone which is the hardest.

The immediate reaction on YT and Reddit was,

Who asked for this! Give us a harder difficulty! You never listen to the community we've been asking for a harder difficulty and you go and give an easier one?!?!....

yeah go ahead you 5% vocal minority...

It's abit like the EGS exclusivity China spyware etc saga. They are so entitled that they must have their games on Steam, and don't care that devs are getting more money to develop their games by going to EGS.

Haha. Many hypocrites around. Ppl who play on PC always talked about option this option that. When comes to having another option, like epic game store, oh no. I don't wanna install another client. I prefer all my games in a single location. Yada Yada Yada...

Is Injustice 2 worth it just for the story mode? Since 1 is free now, I thought of buying I2 Legendary, play both for the story and ignore online trophies.

Story? Might as well just watch on YouTube or my channel. It's just fight fight fight dumb ai only. Online trophies should be easy to complete but sadly got one final trophy is very rng. So if rngGod likes you, you might plat it much faster than others.
