I want to love these guys so FUCKING much, their character designs and music and shit is so good, but after completing Bayonetta 1 and 2, Wonderful 101 and MGR:Revengeance, I still fucking hate all of these games gameplay-wise. The only reason I bought and played them was because you bastards keep insisting there's something I'm missing and I've been telling myself the same thing, I just fucking hate these goddamn games, I hate how you move and how you attack, and in all of these games I've run into HORRIBLE fucking glitches
what games or producers have you been trying your hardest to accept but just can't bring yourself to, /v/?
I felt the same way about Wonderful 101 specifically. As someone who loved Kamiya/Platinum's games and was in particular a giant fan of Toku, W101 remains the most disappointed I've ever been in a game. It's just so unenjoyable to play.
I told myself I could enjoy them and everyone on here and on other imageboards, even my friends insisted that if I just keep trying I'll "get it"
I beat most of those a second time on the hardest difficulty, before anyone tells me I just suck at the games
I'm having some trouble with MGR. Am I supposed to be blocking in the direction of the enemy?(if the enemy is to my left, i block left) or am I supposed to be blocking to counter the direction of the incoming attack?(if the enemy is standing in front of me, but his swing is coming from the left, i block left)
The only thing i dislike is the player physics in this game.
For some reason in MGR enemies plop around and feel like they have mass to them.
Raiden feels like you're playing an old NES game where you couldn't jump and move at the same time.
Also, keep in mind you have to tap the direction for each attack. There are some enemies/bosses that will attack rapidly, and you will need to tap the control stick in their direction for each hit. Holding the control stick in the direction won't work.
It would be nice if they made a game that wasn't just DMC reskinned for a change. W101 at least tried, though in doing so it compounded many of the crippling flaws every Platinum game suffers from.
People like getting creative with the fighting systems in those games. Devil May Cry has the most
crazyvideos of stuff like that. You really do just gotta love playing around with the possibilities.
It's totally okay to not like them. I myself love platinum and have since they were clover. They know how to have fun and take silly concepts and turn them into stories that stick with you (wonderful 101 and viewtiful joe) that being said, it's not for everyone. It's a very niche thing and even though I love the gameplay in their games, its not perfect and I think that's because they want to experiment and try something new. Hopefully this gives you some kind of idea of why we like them and who knows, maybe one day you'll go back to them and find something you never noticed before about them that you'll love.
(I had the same problem with wonderful 101 when I first played it but it grew on me, I can't explain why, but it did.)
