I hate that everything has to be an advertisement for the next one. All the Disney+ series were just either epilogues to stories that were already told or prologues to the stories that are going to be told in the next phase.

So this was my second time playing Gorogoa since I played it around launch. Back when I first played it, I did like it enough to put it pretty high on my GOTY list, but stay tuned to see if I still feel that way!

Similar to others, I started this with a controller but after twenty minutes went to using a mouse. Like others, I found the controller to just be a bad way to play and it exemplifies most issues someone could have with the game. Considering the gameplay is already pretty slow and occasionally obtuse, wrestling with a slow and inaccurate cursor could lead to quick frustration with a game that is more or less a "chill experience."

I will agree that the themes of the game absolutely went over my head, but the presentation of it all is still very pleasant and I enjoyed seeing where the vignettes went and how they would connect. No puzzle ever took me that long, but that is probably because I had solved them before and I remembered just enough of each one to kinda know what needed to be done.

All in all, I think this is still a game I'd reccomend to others so long as they can play it with a touchscreen or mouse. It can be finished super quickly and I really think there isn't much like it, so it does get some bonus points for being unique enough. I don't think I would put it on my GOTY list if it had released this year (or last) though. But I am glad others are experiencing it. And I think it was a great first game since it shows the range that can be found on Gamepass.

I think it makes sense to let people who couldn't get through the game to be allowed to air their grievances or talk about why they couldn't finish it.

1. Record of Lodoss War: Deedlit in Wonder Labyrinth (2 weeks is okay)

2. Kill It With Fire

(Thanks again for kicking off the voting process and starting this @bigsocrates )

@av_gamer: yeah this is how I see it too.

Giant Bomb, to me, has always been about the people being able to speak their mind on whether or not they think something sucks. And a lot of stuff sucks right now. Obviously the state of the world is pretty low, but also alot of the AAA releases have become this carousel of open world games where you open a map, select the nearest icon and head in that direction. Sometimes, that sucks. Sometimes it doesn't because the gameplay is still fun. It's just their opinion like how this thread is some of ours.

And I think it's easier to just see/hear the negative stuff if you're only taking in the Bombcast. UPF has become a spot where folks just bring dumb games and have fun. Both Jeff's really shine during those spots. And Jess (since others are bringing her into this) always brings the weirdest games from itch that clearly excite her too.

I played Mario 64 for the first time outside of a Toys R Us kiosk near release. I was pretty surprised at how great it holds up. The amount of secrets they pack in to that game is wild and I'm sure young me would have gone absolutely bananas if we could have afforded to buy it back then.

I had only ever seen the first few levels, so it was cool to see just how much more there is. And that even though I hadn't played it before, because I've played all other 3d Mario games, the controls were super easy to get a hang of. So, you know, turns out this game is as good as the hype.

Note: I played the 3d Mario All Stars version after testing it out compared to the NSO Version which had noticeable input lag.

I agree that the discussion of each game should be in their own individual threads. If we can hold the line long enough, maybe it'll catch on.

I'm totally fine with the voting process. I think taking part in the democracy could get people to play something they wouldn't normally if they see overwhelming support for the game. At least, that's how I would feel.
