>>507594892EoSD and LoLK


>>507594436I don't disagree since I hate the feel of movement in EoSD, but characters and music is the reason why most people love Touhou.

>>507595486Yeah, but at that point you aren't really critiquing it on being a "game." And there's not a single touhou character I outright hate or anything, so there's that too, so it's not something to factor in, really.

>people keep spreading the fact that "Touhou games are mediocre shmups">been on a binge lately through various shmups>still end up going back to Touhou occasionally and enjoying themI don't get it, is there some kind of inside joke with pretending the games are bad? The only 2 I never really go back to are 3 and 9 for being actual inferior Twinkle Star Sprites clones. Before you accuse me of something stupid, my favorite Touhou character is the Crtl key.

>>507595785Character designs and music can absolutely be critiqued. Clearly gameplay is what's important to you, but really, Touhou isn't the best STG series to play if that's what's most important to you.

>>507594892IN / SA

>>507596486Don't get me wrong, I absolutely adore the characters and setting. Merely that I'm willing to admit it's not "the best" under OP's stipulations.It's the only series of games I really play often, anyway...

>>507594892EoSD, IN, SA, UFO and LoLK are all contenders.>>507594963I think most people love Seiga and Yoshika: their stage 4 fight is a well done dual boss fight and Score Desire Eater is a cool spell for a stage 3 boss.

>>507596401Anons just conflate "harder" with "better" to make them feel like they didn't waste their time.Everything's all a waste of time, anyway, but there's no sense in grieving over that or being hypocritical about it. Just enjoy fun things.

>>507596831Maybe Cave sets the trends somewhat, but I never see what makes them really stand out except difficulty wank

>>507598151For obvious reasons, non-Touhou games tend to have higher production value, since they are made by more people, or because they have to work harder to distinguish themselves on the market.I'd say Touhou games are good in most ways that matter, but I also think huge impressive bosses with attack animations and visually unique small enemies are nice. At least as long as the visuals don't get in the way of dodging bullets.>>507596831Cave should just cave in and make a Touhou fan game. I don't think ZUN would stop them at this point.

>>507594436>>507595486I don't really understand you. Isn't the movement in EoSD the same as in all the other games?As for the spell cards, they are clearly not as elaborate in EoSD as in later games, but this is why EoSD is one of my favorites. If anything, it's impressive how EoSD's spell cards all manage to feel unique despite almost all of them being fairly intuitive "dodge RNG stuff" cards.

>>507599132There's certainly nothing wrong with such things in a shmup game. Higher quality and what-not is better.What I'm saying, though, is that most people who shit-talk 2hu while praising other shmups do so purely because of difficulty.

>>507602461Well if tsukumogamis by Japanese folklore are old tools that got possessed when the user stopped using them (probably to make people and specially kids treat their stuff better and make it last a long time). By that logic these tsukumogamis want desperately to be used to by human so they become turbosluts

>>507603454People who shit talk Touhou do so for made up reasons to justify their dislike for popular things.Or possibly because they are used to other styles of shmups and can't play/enjoy Touhou as easily.(Also, not all forms of criticism is shit talk. )

>>507595486Don't think EoSD is any special in movement. If anything, I find the radical difference in movement between characters of MS and PCB more annoying

>>507605570Your feelings towards EoSD are confusing, and you are not doing a very good job of elaborating on them.Why do you find it the least fun? It's not that your opinion is wrong, it's just that the thread will be more interesting if you tell us more.

>>507605959The bullet patterns, mainly. Patchouli's spellcards looked nice, but they operated simply as a more complex form of Rumia and Cirno's (in that you had to do sweeping motions to complete them and what-not). The rest of the spellcards weren't that cool to look at or play against.Especially Sakuya's, which disappoints me the most. Her gimmick is that she can freeze bullets and make them insta-appear, right? But the way it was handled, it was no different than any other type of bullet rain. They might as well have not used a time-stop gimmick in the first place. PoFV incorporated the gimmick a bit better, though, and it's a shame that wasn't how EoSD used theirs.I like danmaku that both looks and feels good, effectively. I simply think EoSD didn't provide that quite as well as other entries had (except maybe Ten Desires).

>>507606515I think most stage 5 gimmicks are pretty weak honestly. Sakuya and Youmu are just bullet spam, while Reisen and Seija are big surprise but fairly trivial after getting used to

Attached: 1583785210323.png (705x566, 212.8K)

>>507607904Reisen is such a fucking disappointment.Bullet Shifting could be used for really creative and utterly sadistic patterns but instead all it amounts to is lazy back'n'forth movement

>>507606515Interesting point about Patchy. Which shot is this for? I don't think it's true in general.For Sakuya, I completely agree that her time-stop is just a gimmick. Funny that you mention that danmaku should "feel good". I completely agree, and this is actually part of why I like EoSD so much: with many other Touhou games, I feel that the spell cards are less intuitive, so you have to do some specific practice before it feels good to dodge them, but whenever I replay EoSD, everything just clicks without effort.

>>507607904I'd have to agree with you, there, honestly. Although, Futo's spellcards in Ten Desires were pretty fun and dynamic (even if she's probably the easiest Stage 5 boss). They had lots of cool patterns and such which was nice.Beyond that, I feel like there's generally more interesting spellcards in stage 4 and 6. Sometimes 3, Keine's spellcards were all-around fun.

>>507586257All of them

>>507608167Patchy's lasers, where they sweep at you from the left and right. It honestly feels like Rumia, but stronger. There was also the flaming fire danmaku which she shoots at you.They were cool to look at, but were rather simplistic. My favorite spellcards in EoSD, but not within the series as a whole.

>>507613081That's true. However, the fact that you don't move egregiously slow-paced, the danmaku is somewhat pleasantly well-varied (in terms of looks, though) and you actually being able to see your hitbox, makes things more manageable imo.

>>507613081>grazing to chaining for scoringThe chaining isn't all that interesting either. It's literally press X to deathbomb when there's a lot of items on the screen you can't get, press X to deathbomb during dense nonspells, time certain PoCs correctly, and collect items at max value at the PoC without autocollecting them.Overall, Kanako herself isn't that bad, but VoWG itself is a huge step above everything else.
