I think often when we talk about our favorite games, its to convince people ‘hey play this’ but often times we don’t get time to sit down and really talk critically about them. So I figured this would be a fun way to pass the time.
I’ll go first.
The wonderful 101
TWOW1 is possibly the best action game I’ve ever played, and is my favorite game of all time…however its got its problems.
One of the worst things about it is how long it takes for the combat system to really click. Its odd mechanics of constantly having to redraw your formation, eventually using the stick since its more reliable to switch from, can become a hassle when drawing the more obtuse shapes like the hammer or bomb.
Not to mention the weird sexism on display with one character constantly poorly flirting or insulting the main lady character. As well as her odd obsession with the main rival.
While most of the writing is pretty entertaining and good the parts revolving around those two tends to be frustrating and tarnishes what is otherwise for me a nearly perfect game.
