Was browsing through the CGI thread and someone posted a video for the PoP game from 2008 (The celshaded one). A game, I can say with total conviction detest to the very core of my being. I simply think people who like this game in anyway are utter morons. Why?
QTE combat, where if you fail halfway through all their health is restored.
Even worse, QTE/rhythm platforming. It is utterly baffling and enraging that gamers would enjoy platforming where pressing anything other than A for the first jump and then just holding the analogue stick in a forward position is all that is needed to "platform" in this "game".
WHY DO THEY HAVE AMERICAN HIGH SCHOOL ACCENTS AND ARE PRETENDING TO FLIRT AS IF IN A AWFUL ROMCOM! FUCK OFF!
You can never fail. Ever. Because Erika has swishy swooshy magicy curse thingy which automatically teleports you to the nearest ledge if you fall and in the sheer boredom of the "game" you will fall often because there is no incentive to actually connect with the game in any meaningful way.
To add insult to injury, there's a plot bit at the end when the girl is taken away and suddenly....you have to platform with thought and precision. There is meaning behind the platforming again! Alas, it is still rhythm platforming but at least you can fall down.
You get five achievement points for starting the game.....
I can't see beyond the sheer rage of this game atm. Pretty positive there are other games I can come up with.
