Hot take: Fight Club is still a fairly good movie, not a masterpiece or anything, but it's pretty great. A lot of Fight Club fans are absolutely terrible though, and a lot seems to forget that even Tyler Durden is a fantasy created by the narrator, he's basically a fantasy of counter-culture, not what actual counter-culture should be. The twist of multiple personality disorder is generally lame, but it works in the context of that movie because of that.

I really like those games and it was a fun quicklook.

I understand people and @voidburger (not a knock against you to be clear, I really appreciated your presence on this ql) not liking the twist of Little Hope, but for me the best thing about these games is that they lean into the horror clichés and tropes without acting knowing or smug about it. I've seen criticisms against them being "too serious" but I don't think they really are, they just avoid acting self-aware and meta in a way that'd be grating (like a Cabin in the Woods is, imho). In a serious dramatic game the twist of Little Hope would've made me angry, as it kinda destroy the stakes of what happened, but in the context of the game it worked as being a dumb "gotcha" that's very similar to the creepshow vibes this series is going for.

Still, Until Dawn is the one that succeeded the most at incorporating the clichés but using them in a novel way, but I appreciate supermassive leaning into the tropes still. I think House of Ashes lacked the dumb scares but it also has one very dumb twist that I enjoyed quite a bit.

@brinty: Yeah I was surprised how Jeff described it because it’s definitely not the way I’ve learn it.

Spelunky is a rogue like because there is not permanent progress (but then you could argue the shortcuts are a form of that) whereas Rogue Legacy is a Roguelite because you unlock permanent upgrades between each run.

I’m the genre ... now!

This looks super cool to me. I understand the general sentiment of not wanting to pay 80$ for a roguelike but on my end I’m quite happy to have a AAA that has a different structures and seems willing to be *weird* over another open world.

Brad choosing to do a story mission while he's supposing to speedrun the level surprised me quite a bit. I feel for him, he has too much anxiety about acting quickly and doesn't know the maps well yet it seems, you can definitely get away with a lot in hitman when you know how but you have to be willing to push against the limits of the systems to get there. I hope he'll get crazier in future videos!

@crippl3: I'm with you. Not saying people are wrong about it, but the opposites opinions that this map gathered surprised me. Playing the game and understanding its mechanic for the first time was a "best moment of the year" moment for me, and I loved all the experience I had in the map. Even after two replays it is still my favorite map of the game.
