PostSubject: My God that was an awful, pointless, awfully pointless grind (Eternal Sonata)   Wed Oct 08, 2008 12:44 am

Recently started playing this game again. The first time I played it, I got about 5 hours in and reached, for some reason, a massive puzzle involving a massive cirlcular room divided into two halwf with big concentric crescent paths and upper and lower floors and movinf rooms and switch that moved the paths and all that kinda shit. Got incredibly fed up with, stopped playing the game.

Came back a few months later, started from the beginning again (glad I did), got back to that room. This time, I went through with a guide. A very cleary explained guide that told me exactly what to do. And it took me AN HOUR to push all the switches and run along the paths and move all the rooms in the right way in order to advance. An hour. And that was with the knowledge of exactly what to do and clear directions. An hour of running in circles, pushing switches, and fighting bloody rats. I really fucking hope this game never does that again.

It really did feel like it was there just to make the game longer.

I remember a part of Okami where you had to run around for an hour just to get a dog to join you. It was stupid.

The bit where you had to find all the dogs or something? Been a while since I played it.

The worst case of that I've seen though was in Super Paper Mario. You literally had to just run in a wheel for 10+ minutes before you could advance.

Yeah, you had to find 8 dogs or so. 4 where hidden in the village, 3 were nearby and for the last one you had to run around the entire world map.

Oh yeah. That last one didn't bother me at all though, because it wasn't arbitrarily introduced. It wasn't just a new area that was designed to take 100x longer to get past than it should be. The dog was there in the village the whole time, from the start of the game.

Those type of delays I don't really mind, because you're actually playing the game for the most part. The game doesn't just take a break for something completely unrelated to the rest of the gameplay that takes a ridiculously long time.
