  • is there any game you've played that's, like, Not That Great and often frustrating but you keep playing it because the theme or underlying license it uses manage to keep you compelled anyway?

    The SpongeBob GBA games I grew up with are pretty mediocre in the grand scheme of things but I have a soft spot for them that won't go away. So no matter how many times I die to an eel coming from any given side of the screen at great speeds without enough warning to dodge, I can't bring myself to trash on games that defined my childhood.

    Maybe Spore is That Game for me. I personally love it but I agree it's Not So Great in terms of the gameplay. To call it shallow is an understatement. I keep wanting more from that game but Eaxis has never ever delivered what I wanted. Better Space Stage overall, better combat, making befriending creatures more fun, more parts, less Grox to conquer, bugfixes (Spore is seriously buggy and prone to crashing), voice options (your creature always sounds like a dude unless it's a noncitizen or part of beak/insect tribes), more flexible paint jobs for creatures (like allowing players to color individual parts), being able to drive vehicles. But I keep coming back to it because its creation aspect is seriously good, and Galactic Adventures is just super fun to mess around in.

    Oh, by the way, Mario Kart Battle Modes might qualify. They're frustrating as hell because cartoon kart racer typical shenanigans and usually lack options, but the idea of pursuing Wario/Donkey Kong and denying him points is always really fun. I mean, there isn't a single fantastic Battle Mode, but I have no idea why I keep pouring so much hours into them especially compared to races.
