Eh. It's been a while since I've had a proper discussion about the game that encompasses all of its aspects
/v/ used to talk about how good the game was as a game, /d/ loved the art and scenarios, rarely do you see both properly talked about and addressed in any actual depth or detail though, which is where the real genius of Shrink High shows itself, imo.
Its a bit much to call those reviews, they were more just
>posts with a little more effort put into them over just shitposting
I just compared then to how certain jewtubers review games, overly simplistic, shallow observational criticisms that serve to stroke their own egos at the feeling of saying something that sounded intelligent and elevating themselves "above" the game in the process to make themselves look like the authority on it.
Irritates me to no end.
People do appreciate shrink high but in their own ways of course and there's nothing wrong with that, but it gets tiring to see the same kinds of vapid, shallow praises too. I definitely prefer them over the cancerous anti-SH shitposting though.
You pretty much hit the nail on the head as to why there was a divide I think. Expectations from /d/egenerates were very different.
>I for one find it frustrating to even conceive someone looks down on a game I appreciate
As someone who mainly enjoys more niche games these days, I know this feeling all too well. When I see that, to me it's like throwing a handmade meal from your hardworking grandmother on the floor and trampling it. It absolutely disgusts and infuriates me.
Personal autism aside, agreed again on all points.
This is like talking with a twin brother I never knew I had.
Dunno if you'll stick around the thread or the board but thanks for the discussion so far anon, I'd enjoy talking about the game plenty more if you wish to continue at all, but if you don't I hope you have a great time doing whatever it is you're up to.
Something to add on the battle system, I'm really glad they used the side view and not the cheap dragon quest style front view (and actually made it titillating to play with ofc.)
