  • Old repetitive game but interesting system. In shadow of Mordor, if you use the same skill repeatedly on the captain, captain goes”he is obviously going to do the same move again” and the enemy learns your repeated move and counters it against you and you have to change tactics to kill the enemy captain.

  • I still enjoy the original Dawn of War series combat. Granted, there's no way to avoid combat, no dashing or sliding, the story is on a one track path but you can customise your squads how you choose, within limitations and some enemies will wreck you unless you're prepared for them. Of course, its a PC/Kb+M game, no controller so more buttons to learn, and minimal tutorial as far as i remember (everything up to Dark Crusade required the base DoW, so it assumed you'd played through the story to that point)

  • Monster Hunter combat is top fucking tier. The moves don't change, You just learn to use them in the best scenario and combination possible... Having to go through this process for every monster... With 14 weapons of choice!!

  • I feel like there’s a lot of really fluid combat in Yakuza Kiwami. It’s one thing to button mash (not very effective) and another to tiger drop (extremely boring) and then there’s this whole new experience combining different rushes and swapping between styles mid fight. It’s a blast

  • Tbh, A game I personally enjoy that contains most of what you said in this video, Is Nioh, Basically a dark souls game but in its own way makes it very fun It has variety of weapons to choose from at the start of the game but none of them feel overpowered in any way, How some are very slow hitting but deals a lot of damage, Or fast weapons but leaving you open to attacks and dealing decent damage it contains those variables of “What is the best approach?” Yes over time the monsters will start to become repetitive, But they always add a new one soon after like you said, Where as I was once fighting a skeleton warrior that I could take out very quickly and easily with my attacks, Now I have to bide my time waiting for the attacker to lunge so I have an opening to do any kind of remotely good damage The game punishes as well, Especially when you try to take on the whole world in there, It forces you to 1v1 most enemies as if not they will slaughter you And the bosses no different, Each one being very different, The first one being really easy but after that point everything becomes a night mare, And it’s annoying at times but makes you want to go back and try something new to fight the boss “This didn’t work, So what if I tried this?” And it contains many combat features to help yourself be versatile As well as containing a more or less helpful skill tree allowing you to get many skills for your weapons and giving you helpful perks Overall I would 100% recommend the game, It sure does have a steep learning curve but after that it feels you can do it all, Then you get absolutely beaten down by the next area’s enemies, It’s a fun game !

  • Or you can play roguelikes and struggle to remember the key sequence to tie the shoelaces on your left shoe in order to reduce your chance of randomly stumbling and dying because earlier in the game your shoelaces made contact with zombie blood and you didn't have time to disinfect your hands in the middle of combat and infected yourself while wiping some sweat off

  • ok this one might be controversial but paper mario thousand year door is a pretty good combat system considering it is turn based. Reason for this is the addition of timed button presses that influence defending and attacking. Also there is a trick system that lets you earn crowd points to unleash powerful abilities (also increased in strength by skilled timing of button presses) Every move to attack of defend has a specific window of time to click a button to increase the attack or negate more damage while defending. Every move also has a unique way in which buttons are pressed, toggles are moved, and in various combinations. So although the combat is the same, you get allies with new abilities and face new enemies with different styles of attacks and weaknesses so that game doesnt get boring. Another unique aspect is that you can get perfect defends that negate damage completely but the window of time to pull it off is very small meaning it has a high skill cap. Getting enough perfect defends can make a previously unwinnable fight winnable. There is a badge system as well. The badges gift you different passive abilities and new moves to use in fights so there is a lot of customization available to the player.

Especially 2. There's such a sheer amount of options and builds. Same goes with anything by Arkane. Dishonored 1+2 & Prey. Their upcoming Deathloop looks to be the same way. :) Still need to jump into God of War and really give it my attention. 🕶️

There are sword skills which you can not use at all or take time to master to get an awesome sense of being a combat master. Also you can juggle and even bounce on enemies so you can choose how you like to fight.

  • This entire video i was like... Yup that's half life 1& 2 Checks every box Agency there always some kind alternative method to killing anything with a wide range of weapons. Control amazing control (for the time period) with physics and ways to get around. Imbalance where the simplest enemy could murder you and then slap you with a different version or detailed trap. Till this day the marine in half life 1 was a scary fight and right after you mow down floods of the starter enemy's. Evolution you gain new weapons and different augmentation to ur suit and new ways of play making the combat wildly different from the start of the game Clarity every enemy in this games have some kind of weakness that is always shown not told shoot the head crab to kill the zombie the eye robots eye is it's weak point and so on and at no point does the game give you a tutorial (that i remember?)

  • While this is a pretty solid video, the sad truth is that we're always going to be stuck with titles coming out worse than they should have, purely because of one problem; Misunderstood pandering. (Aside from some companies that just don't have a clue what they're doing sometimes.) Some game developers out there either create a game pandering to those either complaining or funding with their own sometimes bias or opinionated ideas on how some video games should work or be balanced out, then the Devs end up just going with it despite others that know what makes a video game more fun picking up on things, not supporting games that are frustrating or filled with pointless gimmicks for the sake of it. Ah well, at least we've got some devs out there with more common sense than others.
