Clickbait. I'll watch it, it seems interesting to see other perspectives as long as it's more than just bitching. Sequalitis did a good comparison on how Ocarina of Time was a big LttP ripoff and not as engaging.

Super Metroid, one of the best games of its generation. Countless developers and studios cite it as a source of inspiration and role model. It gave a whole subgenre with a lot of acolytes on foot in the indie scene: the metroidvania (because the Castlevania saga adopted, after Symphony of the Night, a similar development).

...and all those 'bad designed iconic games' videos? We'll market it as New Slurm. When everyone hates it, we'll bring back Slurm Classic Gaming and make further billions of clicks.

Brilliantly designed but I dunno, sometimes I feel like it controls like shit.

I agree, the controls have not aged well. Especially wall jumping.

I also feel in a post Hollow Knight world, it's hard to go back to earlier metroidvania games. HK changed everything.

Whatever legitimate points he had are moot when he's such a pretentious person. The hat, the random Japanese words in there, it hurt to listen to.

The "why" in the title should apply better to "why is this shit in Neo related".

The proportion of likes to dislikes is predictable, yet people still gave him views. In his own words, what a bunch of "bakas".

Someone please move this topic out of the Neo Geo forum.

I mean...why should we trust 25 years of well deserved adoration from the vast majority of the gaming world (players, devs, websites, etc.) when we can have a fedora wearing neckbeard named Sephirothsword57 enlighten us on how wrong we all are?

Fuck this guy. May he never breed.

God. Someone mentioned metal Jesus in this thread and that pissed me off more than this vid did.

Side note- I can rarely ever do the wall jump in SMetroid. I'm lame.

That's the one major flaw in the game. That wall jump is way too hard to do until you get used to it. I got suck for a long time on my initial play trying to figure out the timing.

I watched this guy and just sat there to see how long I could stand the way he was talking. I'm like god damn please stop mixing Japanese and English in the way you speak and fucking fix your god damn way of speaking. I know for a fact this motherfucker never spoke like this before.

This is the kind of person I avoided at conventions.

When he was talking about Super Metroid and he said "So this game has a run button for some reason." I never wanted to punch someone in the dick so hard.


P.S. Holy shit this fucker needs to shave his god damn beard. It's been a long fucking time I've seen that much neckbeard.

P.P.S. I just realized. This is a male version of Saner.
