If you don't have fun with SoC, that's a problem on your end.

Game is shit, kiddo.

>>2942910

SotC was absolutely monotonous and the original PS2 version probably cause numerous cases of eye cancer around the world. Ico was cool though.
>>
Castlevania bloodlines. It has like 22 bosses/subosses and only like 6 levels.
>>
>>2943695
SotC picks up towards the end, the final 3 colossi are the best. The first whatever, 13 suck because your stamina is so fucking low and you can so easily get thrown off. The final 3 are the only ones that really feel like they were well developed and designed encounters.

All the colossi come down to:
>do scripted sequence to get onto it
>climb on it and pray you get lucky and it doesn't shake excessively causing you to run out of stamina before you reach the next rest point
>rest
>Get onto weak point
>Stab it
>if theres another weak point, find it, and if you get thrown off repeat the entire process

Whoop de fucking do.

I respect Ico a shitload more then I respect SotC. I don't even think Ico is that good, but it is an interesting case of utilizing a lot of restraint.

>No hud
>very little ambient sound and music
>very simple visuals

I think as a game Ico is pretty shit honestly, it would've fared better as a short film. Its full of some dumb bullshit like jumps that are way too precise (mainly the water wheel area), scripted climbing, and really monotonous and boring combat. At it's core it's a game long escort mission and that's inherently terrible.

How anyone thinks either SotC or Ico are gods gift to gaming is beyond me. People who think the last guardian is actually going to get released also make me laugh.

Yeah, neither is Super Mario Bros. 3, Pac Man, Donkey Kong, Super Metroid, Ocarina of Time, Power Stone, Half Life, or anything else that's obviously retro.

>"muh 1999!"

Invalid. Conflicts with reality. Try a real argument. You know you're wrong. You know the sticky is wrong.

Is SOTC retro? No, probably not. But the console it's on absolutely is. That's why we need a rolling year limit instead of hardware.

Way to derail a discussion though. Why do you people hate /vr/ so much?

It's the only arcade game I can 1cc, both games are neat. And until this moment I've forgotten about the NGPC version, I had lots of fun with that when I first discovered this handheld emulation.

But there are tons of Treasure games that aren't like that. Probably not even half their library.

>>2940506
Pretty much any fighting game could be looked at as a boss rush.
>>
>>2946790
What are you on? It's a game from the 80s, of course it is retro.

Dude, I'm all for inclusion of PS2 gen but this is going about it completely the wrong way. Stop acting like a retard if you ever want it to happen.

Sounds like you played a good bit of a "shit" game
