Some people like stuff you don't like. Some old heads like me loooooove roguelikes. Add on complex combat and a game system that makes you want to keep playing (ala civ but for an action game) and its amazing. Tons of weapon combinations and styles with 100s of different modifiers that change the way the weapons work from range to strength, width bounce, return throw, multiple blasts, etc..i have to admit i was puzzled when i kept hearing about this game and it turned out to be a isometric roguelike i was like.... uh.... really? huh...
so have you played it?
doesn't sound it like it.... "games like these seem..." and "it won't..."
That's one of my main problems even if the levels are randomly generated, they all feel the same every time. Enemy variety is laking, and you basically end up fighting the same 4 bosses every time. Game gets boring fast, especially when you learn which powers are actually useful and which are shite.A genre where you have randomly generated levels that you need to complete without dying. If you die you have to start from the beginning, with newly generated levels.
Isn't learning about the game and getting better at it what people like about roguelikes?That's one of my main problems even if the levels are randomly generated, they all feel the same every time.

I feel like Hades will be a PS exclusive when it comes to console. Seems like their type of game.It's one of those games that I recognize but register away in my long term memory and try it out when it's on sale or on Gamepass or whatever.
Honestly, Gamepass has made me cautious about buying games. I don't buy Obra Dinn because I assume it's going to be on Gamepass one day so it's also sitting in the back of my mine with Hades.
Without Gamepass I would have bought both already.
No man, according to this thread its GOTY contender and OP needs to get himself checked! What a moron!I didn't heard about Hades neither, and when I watched the gameplay videos... I was underwhelmed to say the least.
Not only it's a fucking roguelike game, but is also cringe and ugly as sin.
Yes, but it has overwhelming critical AND consumer support. If Tony Bourdain and Alan Richman started hawking Domino's, you might have a comparison there.To be fair my local Domino’s has overwhelmingly positive reviews in excess of 15k. Not knocking this game, but just because a bunch of people like it does not make it good. It’s just a data point. We all have different tastes and (should be) aware that the internet can easily become a megaphone in an echo chamber.
