How have I not played this masterpiece before?
This game is kicking my ass and I'm enjoying every minute of it.
The music is superb. The bosses are challenging and so much fun to fight. I'm in love with Hollow Knight.
It controls like a dream. Just the act of moving around and swinging the nail feels so good.
But the standout, for me, is the level design. Sweet baby Jesus is this labyrinthine world one of the best I've ever encountered.
And it just keeps going and going like the Energizer bunny. Every area is unique and just a marvel to look at.
The City of Tears is probably my favorite level and the amount of enviromental storytelling peppered throughout the whole map keeps me coming back, trying to piece together what happened in this place.
With the launch of Metroid Dread, I decided to check out what man consider one of the best Metroidvanias ever made. I'll be one more of the choir and join in on the praise.
It goddamn amazing. I can't get enought of it.
If this game were $60, I'd pay them sight unseen. This is a masterclass in videogame design and probably one of the best games I've ever played.
Easily in my Top 10. I can't think of enough superlatives to call it.
Now I'm just like everyone else waiting for Silksong to finally release. I need more Hollow Knight.
It's been a long time since I've been this engaged with a videogame. I feel like I'm 10 years old all over again.
For the love of God, play it, if you haven't already!
Just listen to some of this music.
That's some Vivaldi level shit and I can't stop listening.
Even when those Mantis Lords were handing me my own ass on a silver platter I couldn't stop smiling with how much fun I was having.
