I think it's good overall but the first quarter before you leave the Main House is definitely the best part of the game

The problem is at some point they had to put in the dumb Umbrella secret laboratory monster factory shit to satisfy "traditional" RE fans who were already complaining that it wasn't a "real" RE game.

So they did, and that part wasn't very good, and anyone could have said it wouldn't be.

The dumb parts of RE are the good part. If it wasn't for that, it would have just been an average horror game. While It ain't my favorite RE it still is pretty RE and I appreciate that. Though i wish it was stupider. DLC seems to expand on that.

Didn't they hint at the fact that Lucas was always fucked up and being infected really didn't change him at all mentally?

Why does main villain have " thing" in an RE game might be the most common question asked about RE games.

Remember that time , wesker in RE Rev 2 just had a bunch of baby dolls laying around on fucking pikes... just to be creepy.

They flesh out Lucas's character just enough to make the idea of Lucas setting up traps and crazy door locks and things of that nature around the house believable.

Can confirm. Backwoods LA is spooky.

Kind of stupid thing but Woolie's Audible ad this week was funny. He said "imagine a world where we invented audiobooks first" and guess what, we're living in it. Songs and spoken word history largely predated any kind of writing or book making.

Honestly one of my favourite games of all time now. It's actually fantastic how so many games coming out around these times I am putting super high on my personal ranking.

Having everyone on every podcast I listen to agree that BOTW is fantastic makes me really happy.

It's so nice to have something everyone likes in some way, shape or form.

Even the most short, angry, and jaded of us can still enjoy games.

To be completely honest, having someone like Pat like BoTW is kind of indicative of one of the game's major problems imo. It strays a bit too far from the Zelda formula, and if I remember correctly Pat never really liked Zelda to begin with so it makes sense why he'd enjoy this one. It's still a fantastic game that deserves most of the praise it got, but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't a little disappointed with it overall as a Zelda fan.

Hey, you guys should watch ProZD cause he's great and really gets down to the heart of human nature. Incidently he was the ether guy Pat kept quoting and mentioning in the RE7 playthrough and others.

Not necessarily disagreeing with you, but out of curiosity have you played Zelda: A link to the past? Because that too was a pretty open ended world (For the time) where you could go in any direction and handle things in the order you wanted. Just wondering if you think that's also different from BotW in the way you're thinking?

If botw isn't a 'true' Zelda game, then I hope we never get a 'true' one again. But then the game also has a lot of things in common with Zelda 1 apparently and it's hard to get more truerer then that.

I would want a proper dungeon again. I don't think the Divine Beasts are that great, would have rather a larger thing to them instead of five simple puzzles. But the game is great, I love it.

Yeah, I've played it and I get what you mean, but I tend to see 3D Zelda's as being a bit separate structurally, and more bound to a particular formula.

Yeah, if what I'm reading from the thread is accurate to what he said, I can see his perspective on it. But he also tried playing this hyper completionist style which hampers it, and I seriously don't get what he was trying to say with that EXP thing.

I disagree on the story part. There needed to be more but the drama around this Zelda being unable to fulfill her role was actually really interesting. I really like most of the side characters.

Also maybe I wasn't paying attention but no spoiler warning on that video was kind of crazy.

I really don't see a problem with the franchise trying new things and seeing what sticks, especially when it succeeded in giving us a fresh experience without losing its identity. I'm a huge Zelda fan and yeah sure, this Zelda doesn't do EVERYTHING better than previous Zelda games but at no point did I feel like I wasn't playing a Zelda game. Exploration, puzzles, quirky characters, you name it, it's not lacking in any of those departments. The fact that it tries some new things as well did not detract from the game at all imo.

Not saying it's a problem to try new things, but it did detract from the game in my experience.

Maaaaan i wished those nerds could actually read books. They give Woolie flak fir being illiterate but I've never seen Pat touch a book either... For real tho, only one of my nerd spheres those guys don't even dip their toes in. Woolie did a bit and i still have One hundred years of solitude(I think thats the title?

I'm still Nier spoiler-free. I still have to finish Yakuza 0 and I'm gonna borrow my friend's copy of Automata. But I don't know bout that since Persona 5 is just around the corner.
