Are beatemups a genre for brainlets?

>> No.7250369

I wouldn't recommend them to you if that's what you're asking

>> No.7250397

theres a lot of "mash attack to win" ones
theres also quite a few that have some much more complicated mechanics that border almost on fighting games in terms of style of inputs needed to play

id say most of them are pretty mindless tho

I was told that guys who can't make it in competitive multiplayer games settle for beat em ups, shmups, or other single player copes like speedrunning

>> No.7250452

Depends on the difficulty level being played and how many lives are being used, etc

SoR2 can be a pretty easy game if you want it to be but if you bump it up to hardest or mania no brainlet is gonna make it past stage 3 or 4.

>> No.7250480 [DELETED] 

only if you credit feed

>> No.7250515

If you credit feed, yes.

If not, no. Also recommended to play console strike n' hikes on a hard difficulty setting unless you're just getting into it.

good beat em ups are designed with the ol "easy to learn, hard to master" philosophy. IN SoR2, getting through normal mode is totally doable for everyone given enough time. but on hardest, or god forbid, mania, good fucking luck. you need to be intimately aware of each enemy type, their habits/moves, and more importantly, how they interact together when working in tandem.

note that i said "good beat em ups"
theres definitely some trash ones that are as mindless as can be yes, im looking at you TMNT for SNES

and while were on the topic, shill me some beat em ups that have fighting-style inputs/commands and multiple special moves for each character
some of my favorite console beat em ups are SoR3 and final fight 3 for this very reason. theres just a lot more outside of just mashing attack that you can, and on harder difficulties, NEED to execute, in order to make it through well maybe not on FF3 as its too fucking ez, but i still argue that its excellent combat mechanics let it hold up regardless

>> No.7250623

Books at least require a basic amount of concentration, reading comprehension and memory without any dopamine reward, so there actually is, especially compared to games.

>> No.7250626

Sure, because video games are way more mentally stimulating than reading Kant :^)

no that one's too hard for me

for me grinding training mode in fighters is too boring especially since most games die in two years anyway, but I can play Captain Commando whenever and not get hate mail for doing too many throws

>mtga multiplayer intensity is comparable to a fighting games

You are absolutely retarded

>> No.7251204

Don't know about you, but literally any competitive multiplayer gets high-intensity for me, even puzzle games. I like it, but It feels like so much more is at stake when facing an actual human opponent, whereas I couldn't really give a shit whether I win or lose against A.I.
I like both, but I like each one for different reasons, and when I'm in different moods.

>> No.7251210

King of Dragons is like Magic Sword as a belt scroller. You only get one attack but it works, it doesn't feel incomplete. Warriors of Fate is more like a normal Capcom game, but you get to ride a horse sometimes. They both have a bow-and-arrow character, coincidentally.

I don't know what that is and I don't want to know, perhaps you can continue this debate on /v/ where all the hottest new fighters and zoomer loot games are well-appreciated

yes single player games are not exciting because you have infinite redos, infinite retries, nothing matters, you don't lose rank or points or clout, no one knows you lost, nothing happens, boring as fuck aka comfy for sure because they're dead games with no excitement

The older I get the more I have gained an appreciation for them. The more I think there should have been more of these types of games and better made to. Some of the modern ones have incorporated great ideas that would have made retro beat em ups even better like RPG mechanics. In fact one of my dream games I'd love to create would look like a classic beat 'em up to a large extent.
