After four years without a new game, we finally have another great adventure of Samus thanks to Metroid Dread. Since before its launch on October 8, it received praise from the critics and even became the highest rated game developed in Spain in history.
Many agree that Metroid Dread it’s a great comeback for Samus, with several novelties that renew the franchise, but that maintain its spirit. However, it is not a perfect game and its difficulty could cause conflict for some players who are not used to this type of game. As was the case with the creator of God of war.
God of War creator has harsh words for Metroid Dread
David jaffe is the creator of the popular franchise, God of war. Now that he is no longer in charge of the adventures of Kratos, the designer has a channel of Youtube where he talks about the industry and his opinions of some games. Metroid Dread It is the most recent of them and it seems that it did not leave a very good impression on him.
It all started with a tweet where he wrote: ‘Kena, Metroid, Returnal; all lead the way towards very challenging games. Maybe it’s the generation of NES that are becoming designers, but I hate this shit. And it’s not an old thing; I have never liked it. But before it was not so cheeky. It’s as if the developers want to alienate players‘.
Although some users agreed with him, most of the answers seemed to attack the developer. Due to the attacks on Twitter, Jaffe decided to upload a couple of videos on his channel to show his points regarding Metroid Dread.
On one of them start by saying: ‘People attack me on Twitter saying this is Metroid, well then it’s a shitty design, sorry. If this is acceptable to you then you are a fucking idiot‘, this because I did not know what to do in a section. Of course, the comments of his video reiterated that this saga favors exploration and that it does not always tell you exactly what to do.
It seems that the opinion of Jaffe It does not have much support from the players, because even its video has many more hands down than up. He might have made a point in saying he didn’t like the game, but offending his entire fanbase was perhaps not a good move. What do you think about this situation?
