Why arent there more games like the EDF series? Just plain old no nonsense fun.
They're my favorite games. My friends and I found EDF 2017 in a bargain bin for $5 and decided to go for it. It was so campy and silly that we were instantly in love.
It's a great coop game.
The core concept is great.
The problem is that they look AND play like PS2 games.
That, and people like cutscenes.
Dynasty Warriors style talking during combat doesn't satiate most people.
Would be a perfect arcade cabinet game, but people nowadays aren't willing to shell out proper dosh on a game like EDF
EDF, EDF, EDF!!!

It's about what I'd expect. Not everyone gets it. User scores are more polarized anyway, probably lots of 10/10s from cool dudes and 0/10s from ignorant retards. Which is typical. Meanwhile all the journalists throw it the gentleman's 6 cause they just don't get it.
user scores are meaningless most of the time. if a game has a score that a user thinks is too high, instead of giving the game the score they think it deserves, they'll give it something lower like 0 in an effort to sway the average more. Same thing happens if the game has a lower score than someone thinks it deserves. That is, unless that's the median instead of the average, in which case good thinking, metacritic.
Cause video games are now meant to be artfull and deep.
We dont need are want any more of that type of tripe bringing down the meaningfullness of video games now so the pess of thpst type of games there are the netter.
Fun is for immature people who refuse to grow up anyway
EDF and LP are some of my favorite 4 player co-op games sadly due to Capcom shitting up LP and shit reviewers chewing out EDF because they suck at the game really gives games like these a hard time to shine amongs the sea of open world parkour crap and rehashed one man army fps games.
I sat in and played 2025 with a friend for new years, fun times but the grind is ridiculous. We're too casual for hard mode on lvl 45+, had to switch back to normal. Fucking jumping spider and ass rape Japanese hornets. Thunder bow is godlike though.
