It's all memorization most of the time. The moment it's completely random, it is not fair.
>>
no game is fair unless it gives me a one hundred word essay on what attack is going to happen next, the mechanics of the attack, and how to properly deal with the attack without taking damage tbh
>>
No.

The vast majority of the ones anyone cares about are fair though.

The fact that Ultra still hasn't been cleared on a single credit says "no".

Same is true for Raizing loops. At some point it becomes impossible for a human.

This, how can we be expected to actually play the game? its shitty game designs when i take damage in the game once tbh and it gives me ptsd triggers, thats why fallout 4 is gonna be my goty tbh fam

Shmup should have more random bullets than memorization, in my opinion.
>>
>>313086228
I think there should be a nice balance of aimed and strictly pattern based shit.
Randomization should be limited to areas where it can't effect survival or scoring in a huge way.

>>313086228
It's not like you're good at them so I don't why you think they should become harder.
>>
>>313084930
There is no such thing as a genre where every game in it is fair.
>>
>>313088181
are there unfair walking simulators?
>>
>>313088407
Yes, it's real life.

>>313088407
Life.

It's your fault for buying house first instead of a gun.
Priorities, nigga.

>>313084930
Of course not. There are unfair games in any genre. But I don't think that what I consider an unfair shmup is what you are trying to talk about.
