If you've played Dread, deep down in your soul you know Sony has never made a game with such exquisite controls or incredible gameplay.

Any gamer worth their salt will tell you this.

8/10

For a game such as GoW, Nintendo would be simply incapable of creating even if they assembled all their studios into one. But what do you expect when they're still creating $60 side scrollers when the rest of the industry moved on 25 years ago🤷‍♀️

So I guess then if scores are the be all and end all you've accepted BOTW is better than any Sony game ever created.

BOTW is 10/10 here but also higher on Metacritic than any Sony game ever created.

So going by scores it edges Sony out in every category.

If you choose to cling on to one site just to troll without any other view of the outside world it shows why you live in this garbage can 24/7.

I'm a real gamer though scores aren't that important to me.

That said, Dread is better videogame than anything Sony has ever made in all of their years in business.

Can you play the superior, much much superior version on the ps3? No. Its exclusive to the ps5. Simple as that, time to accept that.

Seriously though, think about how eh the gameplay is in Sony developed games and compare it to a masterpiece like Dread. Be honest with yourselves here. Not even trying to flame the Cows here. Just calling out the real gamers.

Dread is good, but nowhere near the best Metroid. Acting like it is feels pretty direspectful to the series.

8/10 for me. A bit uncomfortably close to 7/10.

Yeah, that too. Should've cost less. Sometimes feels like Nintendo don't really like Metroid and kind of wants it to fail.

They wait 19 years to give us more Metroid. When they do, they give the project to a quite unproven developer, instead of RetroStudios who have been proven to be amazing with both Metroid and 2D games, and haven't done any other shit for years. And then they sell it for 60 bucks in a world where very similar games are being sold for around 20.

I mean.. if Dread doesn't sell a lot, it pretty much deserves it.

I'm pretty worried about it. I've no idea how the development goes. Metroid Prime 3 kinda sucked. Last time Retro Studios made a game was 7 years ago. Are they even Retro Studios anymore? Etc.

Sony has made many games with significantly better combat and vastly superior gameplay mechanics.

To name a few over the last few years:

  • The Last of Us (on a different dimension all together)
  • The Last of Us 2 (better than anything Nintendo has ever made)
  • God of War (on par with LoZ:BOTW, by far greater than Metroid Dreadful)
  • Uncharted 4

Very, very false.

Better than Fusion? I'd say it's on par, if anything. Samus has never been so fluid to control. The powers are really fun to use. But Metroid is a lot about graphics, music, and just general atmosphere, and Dread takes a backseat in those areas. The bosses are fun to battle, but they're also pretty forgettable, which also is dissapointing for a Metroid game. Super Metroid and Metroid Prime are by far the best Metroid games, and pretty much every old fan of Metroid would agree.

Casey is just on some "best game ever" crusade for system wars purposes. I'm not sure if he's just trolling or actually have bad taste, but it's one or the other. Or both.

Tons of gamer's on the internet think it's the best Metroid including me. If you look past Nostalgia it's far better than the others.

Anyway Prime, and Super are also better games than any games Sony has ever made so the point is moot.

If scores does not matter. Have you played uncharted 1-4, gow, days gone, ratchet and clank, ghost, last of us 1-2 and many more?

have you played any of these games for you to judge if dread is better?

all of them. not just 1 or 2 of them.

They all have worse gameplay. You have less control over the character, they don't feel good to play, and the level design is simplistic.

You must either have not played Dread or know nothing about gaming.

Sorry Bloodborne has good atmosphere but it's janky as hell in comparison to the smooth Samus, typical Fromsoft. Gow is a walking sim with decent combat but nothing even close to Dread. Dread's a completely higher class of game. It should be considered an AAAA for being a masterpiece.

Dread's controls and Samus' traversal are a step up from NG Black, these are the big boys. Sony makes nothing like this.

Press Square to win cinematic gamers always looking for the easy way🤭

Sony's context sensitive automated combat and on rails traversal is childish in comparison. Designed for noobs and children.

The bitterness and jealousy around this game has been crazy from the start.

The guy playing this demonstrates 100 times more skill than any Sony gamer because Sony games don't have the depth to pull insanely high skill level traversal.

Sony's automated games don't allow for a high skill ceiling.

Metroid Dread is the best Metroidvania to come out in years. It being better than all of Sonys cinematic games is subjectivet hough. Some people don't like gameplay and want their games to just tell epic stories, and that's fine. I am personally a fan of gameplay and love 2D platformers and Metroidvanias especially, but, Sometimes I am also in the mood for those walking sim cinematic experiences too. I really loved Until Dawn and the other games that followed.

Yeah, for me Sony games are good for when I want to watch low budget dialogue.

I guess it has a place for film fans.
