I’m Kinglink and…. Well, 2020 sucks, doesn’t it? Let’s just talk about some games?
So for my final video each year, I like to talk about what games I played in a year, and which games were the best that I would recommend to everyone. This year I made a database of every game I played and it’s something I’m trying to do going forward. I ended up with 115 games played outside of games I covered for Humble Bundle, a total of over 250 games.
Hades starts with the son of Hades, Zagreus who is fighting to leave the underworld and must travel through his father’s kingdom to gain his freedom. Much like most Roguelites the concept of Hades is deceptively simple.
But before long players will fail in their quest, and pass on. Zagreus will then be sent to the House of Hades. From there, players can start interacting with the court of Hades. After the first run, the House of Hades will be a little empty. There’s, of course, Hades and Cerberus his faithful hound. Players will also see Achillies and a goddess named Nyx, as well as Hypnos, who is Nyx’s offspring. Over time, more characters will appear.
I’m Kinglink and today we’re going to talk about two titans of the rogue-lite genre. In one corner we have a game considered the best of all time, Dead Cells, which is an absolute powerhouse. But there’s a new contender in Hades, which has just left early access last month and is absolutely knocking it out of the park. So how does Dead Cells compare to Hades?
If you want to stop me and tell me how these two games can’t be compared for some reason, that’s the point. This isn’t supposed to be two very similar games but instead, it’s a chance to look at what makes each of these popular games different and perhaps figure out which is the best, or the one you should try next.
