    I don't fault people who prioritize collection-completion in videogames, it's a completely legitimate playstyle that many games allow and encourage

    to say that a game is bad because the specific way it has allowed you to engage in this behavior though is rather myopic

    you didn't enjoy the game, fine, absolutely a valid response

    that's a stretch from saying "this design/execution is bad, objectively"

    I bounced off Odyssey pretty hard, but the conclusion I came to was more along the lines of "I guess I just don't like these games anymore"

    3D Marios and 3D Zeldas both feel very "off" to me as someone who only ever played the 2D games, with the sole exception of BotW

    the Souls games feel more like what I want out of a 3D Zelda in terms of like, level layout and combat flow

    I got all 999 moons in Mario Odyssey and then caught balloons until I had enough coins to buy every outfit and I still say Mario Odyssey rules.

    It's my third-favorite 3D Mario.

    I wish Mario Odyssey had a bit more difficulty, or at least more optional higher difficulty levels at the end.

    Game's good as hell though, it's a pretty minor complaint. Also my primary complaint with 3D world too, though that had a bit more of the extra difficulty levels at the end I was looking for.

    Darker Side is pretty dang fuckin' hard though

    though I'll grant it's third in difficulty after Grandmaster Galaxy Perfect Run and Champion's Road with Toad.

    at what point did we as a society stop automatically inferring "in my opinion" when reading "<piece of media> is bad"

    Mario Oddesy is fuckin boring

    It's got some cool bits but they are surrounded by miserable tedium.

    And I didn't try to 100% it or anything. I barely made it to the credits.

    Mario Odyssey is so bad that I haven't even played it to form my own opinion on it.

    Or it's so good that I am afraid to play it because I don't want my mind blown out my butt.

    Those are just my two cents, though.

    Newcomers will cover the end of the series, Rise of Skywalker, tomorrow. Last week was great, the guest was Demi Adejuyigbe. All three of them liked TLJ, Lauren ranked it really high. It's funny to watch the two hosts go from total ignorance to having their ranked list just like every Star Wars fan.

    Anyways, it's a great podcasts. I recommend it if you:
    -Like Star Wars
    -Hate Star Wars
    -Haven't seen Star Wars

    Because there's something there for everyone.

    Saying "(thing) is bad" instead of "I don't like (thing)" is inherently an aggressive, argumentative framing

    I dunno why people act surprised when it's met with aggression and argument

    The combination of botw and odyssey was so deeply disappointing and upsetting that I'm basically out on Nintendo

    Ain't nothing wrong with people liking them but I think those games suck ass

    Nothing wrong with liking more linear, directed games, and that's clearly not the direction most of the industry is going in right now.

    I love open world games?

    Horizon zero dawn and witcher 3 are some of my favorite games of the last few years

    Just not odyssey and botw because I think they're badly designed and boring

    Have you tried 3D Land or 3D World? They're a lot closer to 2D Mario than any of the other 3D Marios.

    The structure of Ocarina of Time is basically the same as A Link to the Past.

    A game can be open world and give you more direction and plot. Both BotW and Odyssey were definitely more on the "go out there and do everything" side, though you did get smaller objectives in a mostly linear order in Odyssey.

    Fwiw I also think odyssey mostly sucks ass

    It's a pretty good Mario game that's dissolved in about 50 gallons of boring grey paste

    Newcomers is pretty good for that. They only briefly touch on things around Star Wars, so far. The fanfiction episode is not to be missed. But it's definitely the podcast for you if your viewpoint is "I like Star Wars but also Star Wars is real dumb sometimes".

    You gotta expect some out-there opinions on a forum with a lot of people. It's just a fact of life. There are people here who think dragon age is good, and I've had to go through a lot of growth to accept that.

    Same "(thing) is bad" instead of "I don't like (thing)" is inherently an aggressive, argumentative framing

    I dunno why people act surprised when it's met with aggression and argument

    language is wild because i have never thought this, and disagree with it

    i wonder if being in text on the internet makes a difference, because if someone said either of those things to me in person, it would just be an invitation to discuss our varying opinions on the thing

    I don’t know that I’ve ever inferred that? When people tell me something sucks my understanding is that they are telling me it’s genuinely poorly made

    The idea that literally any piece of art can click for some people and not others no matter how well or poorly made is true, but is a level of understanding that the person positing the assessment is not allowing for

    I can't say I like the adopted practice of "[art] is bad" and "I didn't like [art]" being treated as the same.

    Cause they aren't and ideally shouldn't be.

    I don't like Jane Austin books but I'm not going around saying they are bad books...

    my problem with largely saying "thing is bad" or "thing is trash" without context when ya just dont like it is that it's the exact same lexicon we use for projects made by harassers and stuff like that.

    so people don't say "I dont like thing" when the reason they don't like it is because it was made by a harasser?

    Using some sort of convoluted logic puzzle to concoct the worst possible interpretation of another's statement is definitely the best way to pass the time
