If you like something enough to have it be your top game of the year, you tell people that. You tell them why, don't tell the website you go to speak for you.

This website is never going to express the same views as you 100% of the time, and it never will.

If they want to move onward, the least you guys can do is the same.

Metroidvania is a nice term explaining a type of game. it's exclusive to games in telling you what it is. You know what it means when someone says Metroidvania, I think it's a silly to be put off by that term. finding out a new way to say it just puts more work into something that feels so well established.

if it isn't that, you're just saying adventure game, and then how often would you feel the need to explain what type of game it is, further.

it would have been better for him to challenge it with youtube directly than to make this video response expecting validation from everyone else.

It's his job to go to work.

You know, The score that Polygon gave is probably the most realistic.

And let's not argue schematics about the art style here, either. It's a fucking brawler. and those are fun, but I can never see them being 8, 9, or 10 fun.

fun like that is low-key, and not a "drop your pants and play this game." kind of thing. The Polygon lady makes good points, regardless of where your butt sits on the art booby fence.

That's like saying that Mortal Kombat shouldn't have gotten 5 stars from Giant Bomb, because it's a fighting game, and I can never see them getting a 5. Or Halo 4 shouldn't have gotten 4 stars, because it's a shooter. Or Forza shouldn't score higher than 3 stars because it's a driving game.

technically you're right. But it's what MK and Halo and Forza do that makes it stand out from every other thing. Dragon's crown, from what I've been reading seems like nothing more than all intents and purposes an arcadey brawler. So I have reservations to see what's different about it.

So what if it's an arcadey brawler? If it's a good arcadey brawler, should it not receive a good score?

I would still consider a 5 to 7 still a good score.

That's an interesting question because I've gone over it multiple times in my head and I've played many different kinds. What makes MOBA's shitty is the communities you play with. It's great when you're on a team of people you know, but others can make it a pretty sad experience.

Essentially, I don't really like Dota 2 for that reason. It's also intimidating the Structure that Valve built to make sure that you're gonna spend money. LoL is Straight up Arena and easy to get into.

I also don't think there's enough people playing SMNC, that one is actually pretty great!

Eh.. Moba is a pretty niche thing, but there's a surprising number of ways that style is presented that might be cool to anybody.
