Godhand sold less than that, and it's the most hardcore game to ever exist ever.

Sales =/= Quality


Godhand sucked imo.

But I do agree nevertheless, I can't tell you how many times I talk about games I love, that people, even gamers, have never heard of.

I sprung for the 1 hour one because the ten minute one just wouldn't cut it.


Link vids all you want, won't change my mind.


Okay, it's your mind. Let me just fix your post then.

There. Fix'd.

Now Shion doesn't have to laugh at that silly statement.

They both have 5 games so far. Two of the God of War games were PSP games. Also, God of War is a Sony exclusive.

So much for your hardcore game experience being better and selling so much, huh? Why didn't DMC4 sell as much as God of War 3 as it was multiplatform and so good, following your logic?

Guess they should simplify it even more and make it like GoW, maybe one day they'll get God of War numbers. Face it, you "hardcore" people are just the entitled ugly cousin in the room. Accessibility is the way of the future and you know it. You're a relic of the past.

BUT BUT BUT MUH DIFFICULTY MUH CHALLENGE


Devil May Cry was the 2nd best selling hack n' slash series of the genre and was catering to a less "casual" audience. Because of that, it sold less. However, being 2nd best in an entire genre despite having jack **** for advertisements (compared to the millions upon millions that the average God of War game has) and being brave enough to say "Hey, if you want to play this game, you actually have to learn how rather than being spoonfed it. If you can't... use Automatic" is VERY damn good.

Let me attempt to use your logic for a second...

Call of Duty sells 25 million copies with each iteration and is about as "Dudebro" as you can get. Deus Ex Human Revolution sold 2 million copies yet has RPG elements, side quests, a dozen different ways to approach the game, and punishes you for playing without thinking. Therefore, Call of Duty is better that Deus Ex Human Revolution and Call of Duty is the way of the future. What's that? They are catering to two completely different audiences within the genre? Call of Duty has a 100,000,000+ marketing budget while Deus Ex probably didn't even have a fraction of that? Variety is the spice of life? Nah, Call of Duty is the way bro!

Somebody should look at how many goddamn times God of War has been rereleased.

Also, 10 million sales is still really good and not every title needs to appeal to every gamer.

Honestly, this thread is pretty stupid.

Art and beauty? Seriously?

Okami, Catherine, Flower, Journey, Limbo, Braid, ICO, SotC, and The Unfinished Swan. Those are beautiful, artistic games, saying Godhand is in their league is an insult.

Thanks, I should've wrote that anyways.

I meant the gameplay, you swine. It's that good.

It's fine though, we can't all have refined taste.

Right, what's not to love about completely unbalanced difficulty? Ever played Dark Souls? If you did, you realize that in truly challenging games, any failure is the players fault. The player was unprepared, the player was unequiped, and so forth... Now I could go on about how Godhand, the game does the stupid thing of randomly raising difficulty, when I made the poor choice of actually doing well. So a game that punishes you for doing well, terrific. It's fine though, what happened to "reward the player for playing well, and punish them for not?" I shouldn't be killed by an enemy that wasn't there when I decided to tackle a room, and spawned in when the game wanted to punish me for nearly clearing it. It's a death I couldn't avoid, because there was no way to prepare for it being there, that's not a fair death. Godhand was great concept, just poorly executed.

I didn't have a problem with it. To each their own though.

Also, the only challenging part about Dark Souls is the first time through. Once you understand the game, it's rather simple.

Ico (4 years before)
SotC (1 year before)
Okami (1 year before)

and looks have nothing to do with it, read my above post. Also, what's to 'Lol" at Catherine?
