I think both games you dropped was a mistake. Detroit is genuinely interesting once the ball gets rolling. It has some slow points but overall it was pretty engaging and the way they realized branching story-gameplay was cool
TLOU is completely different, and this thread makes it sound like you are just baiting a flamewar of sorts. Prove me wrong.

If i wanted a flamewar i would have called it bad, no quality, boring. But i didnt i refrained from saying anything negative aside from it being not my thing.

Its just that most replies jumped on a bandwagon omg OP called it a shitgame, which is a shame.

Hell saying its like RE4 with better controls and better story actually is a constructive way to make me possibly pick it up after the 9th playthrough of darksiders 3

It's a lazy OP, the replies fit well with it.

Well ok.

Now, Detroit Become Human is basically an interactive movie with investigation and a lot of QTE. The only similarity between both games is that they have cinematics that are at the apex of what the machine is capable of.

Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.

Its not just tlou i dropped alan wake, tomb raider in 5/10 mins

Its simple if i dont have a vibe coming from a game i drop it, sorry you feel the need to protect the system

I agree with this. To me, there are so many good games out there, why waste time with something you aren’t clicking with. Do you like pushing wooden pallets and laughably bad stealth gameplay? No? Then you aren’t missing much imho.

I quit Gears 3 after a similar time. Part of the first stage was enough for me to see it was the same tired formula so many games were taking last gen and I noped right out and went back to Guardians of Middle Earth or something else I was enjoying back then.

I really doubt you dropped of Gears 3 5min after pressing start.

Lazy but clear

It is clear that you were bored enough to make it yes,the context in itself does not seem to be that clear considering the responses but it did got the attention so that is that.

I do mildly agree with how easy it is these days to just stop playing because the interest does not catch you right away, we just have many more games to choose from and even without paying for them like those free epic store games,psn,etc....

In a way, he's right, you know.

Everytime I hear this "oh, but it gets good / better after the first three hours or so" excuse I can't help but wonder why the fuck the developers didn't start the game at the three hour mark or whatever.

No one has to play anything that it isn't clicking just because others claim it's the best thing since sliced bread. Such labels, of course, suspiciously get thrown around more often everytime a game is an exclusive.

In what way 5min is enough to know a game, and how is it like Detroit?

I have TONS of "great" games that I've logged in approximately an hour or less. And I have tons of games I replay and even re-buy over and over again. I guess time isn't the issue. It's just motivation.

I replay the entire Resident Evil, Gears of War (but not Judgment), Halo, Arkham series every year or two. I've purchased Metal Gear 2 and 3 more times than I can count! Dragon's Dogma and Pikmin 3 are my go to games.

Meanwhile I'm minutes into Witcher 3 (at least before I got the Switch version), Red Dead Redemption 2, and others. It's okay. Play what you like on whatever hardware you like. You don't have anything to prove to anyone. We're all just looking for that game that makes us want to stay up late at night because we're addicted to it. Playing a game shouldn't be a chore. I can understand why these story based "walking Sims" with action scattered about aren't for everyone.

Playing and not liking? Sure it happens (Witcher 3 I forced myself into 30h playing while hating the game), not liking a game in 5 min well it could happen. Making a thread about it and comparing to a game with which it have almost 0 similarity, nope that isn't much believable.
