Nah, it's hard but I finished it, my friends finished it, heck their little brother finished it. The game is hard i concede this, but totally finishable. No shame to use save states but don't do it right away. You are playing the game instead of watching a let's play for a reason. So give yourself the time to adapt. Let your brain be malleable enough to adapt to the new set of rules of this game and beat it.

Sure, but on the other hand that game wasn't very fun as a kid. You hit a wall, got frustrated, and loaded up a less punishing game instead. The gameplay wasn't very good either, the game was all aestethics.

Grim Fandango had ONE hard puzzle and that was purely because a major clue was VERY easy to miss permanently.

I finished it back in the day. It wasn't long I believe. Hard yes. But not too bad.

>> No.7218492

The hardness isn't the problem it's the backtracking, if you restarted on the same screen then it would be tolerable but often you start almost at the beginning of the level. That's where save-states make the game tolerable.

>> No.7218517

To say it only had one hard puzzle is stretching it, GF is known for its brutal difficulty, how the fuck are we supposed to know there was a dead body buried in the garden that would conveniently react to the card you're holding.

>> No.7218859

I can understand that, at the time this level of animation and CGI style was unheard of in a game, if I remember well this team was going to make a cgi animated movie way before toy story, but they lacked the fund and no one believed in the concept, so they made a game. ( Believe it or not, the french were very advanced in cgi animation) so it's more likely we didn't "feel bored" by it because of the novelty. I guess it's one of these games that need the historic context to be fully appreciated.

I'm 30. The game has a part at the start where you have to jump over 2 enemies one after another right before the ladder instadeath I was too stupid to figure out.
It's cancer, totally inconsistent with how the shades bound where they suddenly speed up and you get instagibbed on touch.
Thing is I forgot I set the game to hard.
Still, this game has a fuckton of problems, but I sorta like it.
Also fucking hell is this game violent having the kid get his neck snapped by flying monsters.

Last bump for this thread, as I think I'll try the game one more time to see how far I can get. (got to the swamp and again got confused because the game wouldn't let you duck in shallow water and so it seemed like you couldn't duck at all - one of the reasons this game is janky bullshit)

Cool game but too easy

>> No.7224810

man I remember this game was in development for like 5 years, which was unthinkably long back then. Today the average game is 2-3 years and AAA titles can last 8-10.

I remember when 8-bit titles gave you a bunch of text ending or a still image at most, if not just looping back to the beginning. It wasn't until 16-bit titles that an ending sequence became a standard.

Meanwhile on PCs you had full motion video endings, and by the mid-90s the standard game ending involved destroying the white house with a low orbital ion cannon, independence day style.

Not sure what tongues have to do with it, but in the High Roller's lounge the first person you see is Nick, and obviously in this kind of game you exhaust all dialog with someone. Do this with Nick and he heads off to Max's office afterwards and you can't get the vital clues to the puzzle from Max.

Let me visualize to you just how fucking annoying this game is.

Screen A
>start of the puzzle, you get moved here whenever you die

Screen B
>a bunch of shades drop from the ceiling, there's a 25% chance you get caught despite being furthest to the right
>shoot seed, shoot plant, get up the vine, this is the part you'll want to blow your brains out repeating

Screen C
>move the rock, get past the plant
>for some dumb reason sprint jumping saves you here instead of just sprinting
>returning seems impossible as you get eaten

Screen D
>after all the prior bullshit you get a split second decision what to do here while the bugs eat you at random
>finally decide to ran past them, somehow start climbing down
>turns out this was a freak bout of luck as I get devoured every time from then on
>the character refuses to get into the climbing animation because the game is garbage
>make a savestate after enduring all the retardation and try more than the game lets you
>turns out you can shoot the bugs
>because the controls are shit find out holding shoot button for more than 5 ms robs of the fast attack while standing
>kill the bugs at last and find out why the climbing down mechanic wouldn't trigger (it's shit)

Screen E
>nothing fancy, proceed to dive to the right

Screen F
>rock moves, but get eaten by carnivorous eels / piranhas like I would on screen A
>solution unclear

And that's the kind of retarded shit you have to persevere through playing this queer atrocity.
I eventually figured out the plant on screen C doesn't react to you if you inch past the screen transition.
No idea why I'm still bothering, the game fucking sucks.
