I havent downloaded a single arcade title... IMO they are never worth 200/400/800 or however many marketplace points....

but Doom is in a whole new league :D

FordGTGuy6214d ago

does that really equal the amount of money they would get off someone in an arcade.

JPomper6214d ago

Guys, it's Doom with online multiplayer for cheaper than the G.R.A.W. map pack. Finally a live arcade title worth purchasing.

Fond memories. This is the game that started my long, never-diminishing relationship with FPS's.

I disagree that max is unlikable. Chloe is infinitely more unlikable in my opinion.

gold_drake1d 2h ago

omg chloe was awful. i really hated her at the end haha

Cacabunga20h ago

Abby was absolute trash protagonist in every way..
Tidus was so meh to me..
On villain side, the one i didn’t like wa Micah, because they wanted him to be that way and it was brilliant👍🏽

Rancegamerx23h ago

I agree, I liked Max, Chloe was a horrible friend and a bad influence.

Cacabunga16h ago

Everyone agrees on chloe, I’m sure even ND do.

H919h ago

Both are horrible, granted Chloe is infinitely worse, it feels like Chloe is just fanservice for people who too over the edge and wasn't written to be a character that makes sense

GooGobbler1d 10h ago

What about that Forspoken Tw*t

MrChow66621h ago

exactly I was expecting it to be a the top of the list

ravens5220h ago

Ye I was expecting her too. Guess they actually played the game. Unlike you and whoever agrees.

gpimlott1h ago

I played through the whole game and think she is one of the worst character Ive ever played as

Christopher18h ago(Edited 18h ago)

She's actually not bad. It's the writing itself that is bad overall, but she's fine overall. She's no worse than Miles Morales IMHO. Both thrust into a spotlight and receiving both praise and blame and dealing with it.

Forspoken is a bland game because it's 75% bland, boring, repetitive going through the motions and diversions that add nothing of the value with purposefully gated memory moments that don't feel organic or like you're discovering things but waiting for others to reveal things.

ravens5217h ago

Exactly Chris. Even though I liked the game. I kno u played it. People who actually played it and went thru her dream saw she was a good likeable person who really just acted out due to being alone and unloved. I think your problem is it was open world, I think if it was more linear you may have liked it better.

savedsynner15h ago

Oh no she's bad. Very unlikable even before you add on the bad dialogue. The game could have been quite good with a good protagonist

ravens524h ago

For all the people like synner. Shes actually half white lol. Inferior complexity is a hell of a thing. You'll be ok.

Nerdmaster1d 5h ago

Most of these aren't even that bad. Especially comparing to others like Squall "Whatever" Leonhart, Forspoken's Frey, and the guy from Atomic Heart.

-Foxtrot23h ago

Squall is one of the best developed main FF characters so...

People talk about his "whatever" thing thats at the start of the game, not the character he eventually becomes in the end.

Nerdmaster11h ago

No amount of "character development", (especially the ones that for me feels sudden and undeserved like Squall's), will justify him being a d**k to my girl Quistis. Even if he found the cure for cancer, from that moment on, I would never like him.
The article is about being unlikeable, and he was indeed unlikeable for at least half of the game.

BrainSyphoned22h ago

Squall is the best protagonists in FF so you can go whatever yourself.

H919h ago

My good sir, I need to steal that "you can go whatever yourself" because it's gold
