Over the past eleven years I've noticed more and more that bad/mediocre games have been getting undue praise with major criticisms being brushed off as "it's supposed to be like that" or "you just don't get it!".

I've noticed the latter a lot with 2deep4u walking sims and the former for games with awful controls.

Other defences of bad games I've seen include

>You're just being contrarian/you hate it because it's popular

>You hate it because you're bad

>You say it's bad because you're a fanboy of xyz

>You're a troll

>You don't like it it because you're racist/sexist/bigoted

What's some bullshit you anons have seen used to defend bad games?

A game called SoulWorker got released on (((STEAM))) and apparently they halved XP cost and upped the difficulty along with premium shit. If you want your blood to boil just look at some comments on review

Yes, reviewers give "extra marks" for social signalling. And suddenly become ultra-critical if said game is not aligned with their own agendas.

Side topic: For some strange reason, in gaming, there's a mentality that you should be into all types of a games and that a "gamer" is a universal tard that will enjoy any good game.

I mean, i don't give two fucks about walking sims or any arkham-style combat games, but its not my place to judge their quality. And that's why I pretty much hate all reviewers who need to give their opinion on every single game release.

I feel your pain OP. It is like modern art; it holds lots of meaning for the author, but it says absolutely nothing to the viewer. Those buzzwords don't fool everyone, but it requires the lowest effort and offers a huge payout.

The main go-to for defending shit decisions is downplaying them (you're still gonna buy it!) and then using reductionist logic to justify them (dude, like, it's YOUR money lmao are you gonna force people to not buy it?). This kind of logic is insidious, because they are non-arguments that at the same time fool every single-digit-IQ redditor on the other side, and which also relies on a kind of mob mentality. Their user reputation is at stake and they can't afford to risk losing it by disagreeing with the popular opinion. The only thing that matters is how big your postcount is and if the ones agreeing/disagreeing with you are more popular than you.

If you don't have large numbers of smart people in the community to see through this bullshit logic and speak up, it becomes impossible to prove your point, no matter how valid. That is how you create echo-chambers that believe in the most insane bullshit.

Anyone here ever seen anyone pull the Nintendo Youtuber Fallacy, or the "But it's Niintendo guys! Come on!" argument. Basically, when the other person finds himself utterly unable to defend any of Nintendo's poor business practices, mediocre games/consoles, or anti-consumer tendencies, their last line of the defense will always be something along the lines of:

>Come on guys! It's NINTENDO! The guys who made Mario, Legend of Zelda, and Pokemon! They LITERALLY saved the videogame industry from crashing! After everything they've done for the gaming industry, I think they can get away with a bad game/business decision or two.

Mostly seen this one get thrown out by Nintendo-centric Jewtubers, but I've met a normalfag who uses this to defend the Switch being mostly ports/remasters and recently the Labo. (I don't know the specifics of the Soyface Wojack meme, but holy shit does he get flustered when he sees them. I believe hem mentioned he kicks anyone from his Goycord who posts them)

This brings up an interesting point in Horror Games.

Silent Hill series until the Canadans cucked it up , your character's aim got progressively worse the further you were from the target.

The Resident Evil series up until 4/5 shit over everything, every character's base accuracy and critical hit chance was different.

Rule of Rose, the main character can barely even lift the gun, handle the recoil and can barely hit anything in front of her.

I miss when there was an actual justification for things back in the day. Limitations like Tank Controls were not only part of the program, they optimized everything around it. When you see tank controls in a modern game and notice that they're not optimized to the bare minimum of Silent Hill 2 level, you know it's just a shit attempt at a horror game.

And one more thing.

>Can anyone who actually played SH in the day genuinely claim that the gameplay was bad?

Yes. They're called Nintendo fanboys. I'm not trying to start any shit here but what I've noticed the most in this modern age of gaming? All of the shitting on classics is done by raging Nintendo fanboys would have never given any of the classics a chance unless it was on a Nintendo system. If the game was on the PC, Saturn or Playstation? "It was shit and if it was any good it would have been on the N64"

I once brought up the main problem with "run and hide" horror games being that its easy to get a sense of plot armor because the devs won't have the monsters check your hiding spot if it means your death not be preventable.

I proceeded to have some stupid anon accuse me of being "the sort of person who plays horror games in broad daylight" (I'm don't) just because I dared to let my intelligence get in the way of a horror game being scary.

But Suda's gameplay is never a parody. It's a statement.

Enemy placement and behavior in Killer 7 is designed to not take overwhelming advantage of your limited motion. The linear movement gives the player a feeling of being forcibly lead toward the inclusion, as though much of it is out of their hands

Flower Sun & Rain also has nice controls that do what they do well. It's the overly long areas designed to gauge how much bullshit you're willing to put up with that you might be complaining about

but that is the most legit reason to hate the game, anon. It may not be for you and it is definitely overrated, but it isn't bad.


It isn't that deep. It gets a bit preachy when only the genocide end accuses you of never having control when your choices are pretty binary and the no control statement can be made for the pacifist route as well. Part if not most of its charm is definitely that it plays with your expectations more than most games, though. I do like that the very first 'puzzle' room has a sign that describes the puzzle solved for you, but also subtly tells you that the only way to play the game is pick an extreme and stick with it.

Ignoring the part where you asked about anons (who usually aren't the ones who have a bad grasp on what is good and bad about a game), I'd say the most annoying defense for bad games right now is politics.

"Ermegerd Wolf 2 is great ebil nerzi killing gayme."

"Its short, average, and the story is dumb and unnecessary."


Just fuck off. your game is casual shit made for paint-eaters who don't play games. Nobody cares about your gay ass politics either.

Honorable mention: "Our game is great but nobody bought it because of muh piracy."

Genocide isn't its own route, it's the completionists' grind. It throws boring shit at you because it knows you're going to do it anyway.

>"B-but that's saying the game is good because it's shit!!!"

No, because the actual route is the neutral/pacifist one, and you end it after a true end like most normal people. Genocide is for the autists or pure completionists who just have to see everything a game has to offer, even if it's shit. If you're wondering "Why go to all that effort for a shitty easter egg?" then you probably don't know that going to a lot of effort for a lot of different easter eggs is part of why the game's appealing.

cd03c6 No.14482349


That isn't really true, though. I mean, the game has rewards and changes for going the genocide route including and most notably alternate bosses, story changes and challenges. It isn't just for an easter egg at the end. You are right that it is making a statement about power levelers, completion autists, and the usual RPG mechanics though.

You can make a case that the different dialogue/two new bosses make it more than that, and I can't really change your mind. But comparing the two, to me, it's obvious that neutral/pacifist is meant to be the actual game, with genocide being for the people we mentioned before.

I have a friend who I told to play Undertale because he loves cartoonish stuff. He didn't tell me he was autistic about grinding, though; he got genocide first playthrough. "How was I supposed to know the monsters were nice?!" he genuinely asked me. mfw

cd03c6 No.14482402


Now that I think about it though, the game could be pretty boring if you play only like a powerleveling autist during your first playthrough as well as your decisive run, in which case the game is basically a middle finger to you anyway which is pretty hilarious.

I'll put it this way: Even if story is what you care about, you don't get a full picture of what is happening without both endings, and now that I think about it, not playing like an autist and not doing a neutral route spoils some of the fun both ways.

My friend was too nice and didn't take the game's cues to "accidentally" kill Toriel. They figured the game out early enough to where there isn't much a point in a second playthrough. Works both ways.

>2deep4u walking sims

these usually get shat on with this very label you just mentioned

only people descriving tech demos like Gone Homo or Dear Esther as games are journo shills who are often told to fuck off with their 3deep5u walking sims

Stanley Parable is probably the only well done walking sim that i would call a game

>games with awful controls

the only one like these i've seen being deffended was Spec Ops The Line. for these kinda games "muh story" is the first (and often the only) line of deffence for the shills i you can just bypassit by telling them:

"if it plays like ass but has a good story i'll just youtube it"

Personally i'm more worried about "games" who are only labeled as such cus the devs shoehorned the minmum requirements needed for something to be considered as a game into their shitty linear visual novels (cough Telltale cough)

shit like The Last of Us also grinds my gears

it's like a mix between Uncharted (minus the puzzles and plataforming) + The Evil Within (minus the horror athmosphere and item scarcity) with a little bit of stealth ripped straight off of Manhunt

generic, linear and monotonous gameplay that's either the very basic needed or something that has alrready been done better somewhere else

It's far easier for the mind of a patrician to understand the mind of a plebian than for the mind of a plebian to understand that of the patrician. They don't see average AAA mass-market games as bad largely because they don't have the context to categorize it as such.

Their stuff hasn't been worth purchasing in a long time. It's all hype, marketing + psychology. Their games are surpassed by others nowadays, the quality of the games compared to other studios has dropped a lot.


Yeah overwatch just takes an example of riot games I guess from what I read. I have never played overwatch I did play league and with the things you can get banend for in overwatch, well it sounds a lot like league. Both games are terrible, both games thrive of little kids and both games give low quality while generating a high profit for the effort invested.

The Burning Crusade + early Wrath (Ulduar) was the best state of WoW after that it was all downhill and before that the game had some issues which Blizzard fixed in the burning crusade.

The flipside of this is saying a game (or any media, really) "aged badly." Good media is good. It doesn't change. If you think something "aged badly" it just means you never actually liked it, but were a bandwaggoning faggot.

While I do agree with your statement I believe you are missing the point of the argurment. OP is talking about people using subjective reasoning to dismiss or cover objective facts.

People can like a game as much as they want, there's no problem with that as "liking" a game is completely subjective. The problem is when they start using that subjective "liking" of the game to say objective realities, like a game being badly constructed, don't exist.

An easy example is Dark Souls 2. Many people subjectively like that game, and there is no problem with that. What can't be denied is that the game is objectively badly made. A person can forgive hitboxes, bad AI, glitches, poor or uninspired design choices, etc. by saying that it doesn't affect their enjoyment of the game. However, taking that subjective reasoning, "I like this game," and saying that Dark Souls 2 is therefore a good game is objectively wrong. An objective reality that can be proven with facts unlike a subjective feeling that can't be proven.

Basically OP wants to hear about people defending objectively bad games using subjective feelings. Not the subjectivity of liking different games.

Overwatch is already pure shit, and Tumblr just runs with it and makes it even worse, as they tend to and even though I know it's blatant pandering, I like D.Vathe only thing Overwatch has going for it is the pornit isn't as though Blizzard didn't know what they were doing.

Not to defend that anon, but I'll say it's bad if there's no penalty for doing so. Running when healing (via drink or food) should at least spill a little from moving quickly - it only heals you for 50% of how much it heals for, compared to 100% of how much it heals for while standing still to drink or eat the healing item completely.

I can't imagine the player character being capable of holding his healing item steady when running away from a huge monster chasing him down.

If that's the only thing a game has going for and itself isn't a porn game, there's no point of discussing the game period. Just only bring it up in porn boards if it fits a certain fetish.

A bad hitbox or sometimes poor AI don't need to make a game bad.

Objective reality doesn't exist since knowledge is subjective. Someone who didn't play a lot of games at all might think a crappy phone game is the best thing ever. Because his expectations aren't high since he never played better games.

Oh for fucks sake. That's pure bullshit. If reality wasn't objective then it would be been possible to send shit into space much cheaply or not even at all.

Why? Because of engineering tolerances, shit needs to be defacto exactly the size is required in the blueprints or shit don't fucking work.

That's subjective experience though. It doesn't necessarily have anything to do with the objective state of the game. If I'm bored as all hell, playing with two sticks can become the most interesting thing in the world. Relative standards for a person have little to do with how a thing actually is.

>A bad hitbox or sometimes poor AI don't need to make a game bad.

In the specific case I used that prevalence of both problems definitely contributed towards the overall state of the game being badly made.

Saying a game is "bad" or "good" is a very poor way of expressing the quality of said game as both are subjective statements or at least appear to be in the context they are most often used in. By removing the qualifiers or surrounding context you took an objective statement of "badly made" to a subjective statement of just "bad."

Yes, I realize I made the same mistake twice in my earlier post. My bad.

I think I got some legit complaints.

Characters are flat with one personality trait (Weeb, sad dad, puns but has a secret, thinks he's cool, warrior, etc)

The world is literally a straight fucking line with nothing to really explore.

There are no real secrets when you play it, nothing that helps you in game really and the few that do are randomized and usually need others to make sense.

You're only allowed to make one choice the entire game and it just keeps asking it over and over, no other answers have any impact on the story

To get the best fight (Which is the only really good part of the gameplay) you need to take the boring route through the game

Theres never any puzzles or anything to make you stop and think to advance, its just a railroad that occasionally stops to make you sit through a cringe inducing cutscene. Only sort of exception was the shooting thing in hotland but even that was piss easy.

People tell me these aren't the reasons I hate the game and its just the fandom. Are these not real?

Like the only thing good about that game was being attacked and they had to interrupt that with shitty jokes pretty often.

What I meant is that the way we perceive reality is subjective. But you can't apply objective reality to social conditions, since humans aren't objective. Knowledge that we acquire comes from society, which is subjective since it's determined by cultural and social factors.


That's because there isn't an objective state of the game. Games are made with a certain audience and customs that the audience has in mind. In this way developers try to align the game with the audience. However it is purely subjective.

From a profit maximization point having 'bad design' is very profitable. It's not fun to have micro transactions or even pay to win structures in the game yet when you look at mobile games they often future this and have a very profitable model due to this.

>lol ur like in a game but you're killing like real people, feel bad yet?

Why do developers keep trying to put this "meta" theme in games? Is the point for me to avoid better games? If I play godhand I beat the shit out of hundreds of people but I don't have anyone trying to guilt trip me at the end, the game is about conflict and it embraces that fact. Meanwhile tumblrtale creates a cast of unlikable characters and if you kill them it tries to preach to you about how you should feel guilty about killing video game characters. Is the point of this message to play undertale's pacifist run over and over for the rest of my life? It's such a stupid message to put in a game. Obviously anyone with half a brain cell is going to disregard the message and play better games since undertale is shit, so it's poor quality undermines it's own point

So we should trust the opinions of someone who's only played a few crappy phone games their entire life?

There may not be one objectively perfect AI or hitbox or whatever, but someone with knowledge of many great games can compare one example to another and judge which one is better. Because they have this knowledge, their opinion has more weight.

A lot of online games that really suck ass have people blame the "community". League of Legends was a huge one. I had ex-friends who would play that shit non-stop. The game sucks, we all know it, but they wouldn't blame the fact that they'd be having a bad time on the game, but on other people.

<bot fed

<jungle didn't gank


A game that has important roles you delegate to complete strangers, and those roles are key to winning, is not a good game design. You are either stuck depending on strangers, trying to get a full team together that doesn't suck, or making some characters strong enough to carry by themselves, which makes people think the game is OP and they blame the character.

MOBA itself is broken, and we've seen every excuse blaming players and characters in the game used to cover up the fact that the genre sucks and there hasn't been a good game in the genre.

I usually like to play games with pretty artstyles but that game, especially when you compare it to every single other indie out there, looks like visual diarrhea.

Characters were flat, generic and uninteresting. I wanted to kill them but it would have made me feel like shit, pretty much punishing me for playing how I want to play.

I also hate furries, japan or disney finds a way to make them cute but undertail makes em look like furfag fucking cancer.

Good job for using shitty footage from 2 months before the game has been out even though the game has been out for almost 2 months now.

They even changed that running speed so its a bit slower now.

I can record some gameplay and show you myself a bit later if I wanted to.

It was a really good beta with a surprisingly amount of content and highly replayable.

>the game never explicitly tells you that you can beat it without killing anything

The game explicitly tells you that you can kill things or spare them and the first dungeon puts enough emphasis on this part that it is intuitive, and on top of that the game puts special emphasis if you decide to kill the first boss. It becomes apparent to the player that Mercy is the better option since there isn't any emphasis given to killing anyone so most players assume the right way to play is to not kill anything.

In fact more players have gone through the Normal or Mercy route without even realizing there is a Genocide route because killing everything leading to any drastic outcome really isn't intuitive. And the best boss, Sans, can only be fought on the Genocide route so players will deliberate kill everyone for the chance to fight him.

>Lying to make the game look better

The Deerhunter is an achievement for shooting any oryx you see, the 'Do you feel like a hero yet?' screen comes from progression and not because you died frequently, the part with the death screen missing isn't a thing, the thing about two enemies is utter bullshit, you don't go to any hidden sniper nests, and finally you can't go back in the final room to see that they're all gone. Some of these things are correct like the increasingly brutal executions, the tree and how dialogue changes over the course of the game, but a lot of this is also just outright lying to make the game sound more amazing than it really is. The biggest sin of the game is how much of it just doesn't go anywhere.
