No sarcasm is completely different... look its dead easy
Hyperbole is the usage of a word to emphasise or embellish something to ilicit a stronger response, it is not meant to be taken literally.
"Zelda Breath of the Wilds weapon breaking mechanic sucks balls, its the worst Ubisoft game ever."
Now you will no doubt know that a games mechanic can not literally suck balls (unless it involves sticking plasma nades to a Spartans face shield) and Breath of the Wild was not made by Ubisoft, boom hyperbole got it?
Sarcasm is saying the complete opposite of something to assert the opposite of what you say is actually true. Again not meant to be taken literally.
"Man Zelda Breath of the Wild is the best Zelda game ever, it tottaly isn't just a copy paste of some generic Ubisoft fodder 11/10 IGN."
You see, it's so fucking simple... see the melle weapons in Halo don't "break" they have a percentage which when it hits 0% they become unusable, it functions identically to if the weapon had broken though which is an "embellishment" making it and say it with me now HYPERBOLE and not fucking sarcasm.
Next up will be no doubt someone confusing these with Irony again... although If you got that right, it would be ironic...
Yes but when hyperbole is used, the person still thinks its true, they are just exaggerating it for whatever reason.
E.g im so hungry I could eat a horse.
What you did was take the piss out of people comparing infinite to the contraversal BOTW feature of finite weapons and ubijank
"Ah so it's an over rated Ubisoft game where the weapons break, I suppose I can see the comparison with the way the Hammer and sword have limited ammo.
Will Halo be the Darksouls of Ubisoft titles?"
The first paragraph u wrote is sarcastic.
Its a caustic use of irony, in which words are used to communicate the opposite of their surface meaning, in a humorous way or to mock someone or something.
Hyperbole is not saying the opposite of somthing. Its exaggerating somone or something, sometimes giving an exaggerated example.
What u said is sarcasm because its a sharp form of humor, intended to hurt, that is marked by mocking with irony.
The people u intended to mock were the people comparing ubijank to infinite.
U were not saying it literally u were saying it sarcasticly.
