Note: not only vidya games
Is this how this is supposed to go?
Pretty much every Nintendo game since the Wii U is soulless, which is pretty disappointing.
Alright, I completely wasted my entire day sleeping and staring at the ceiling even though I have an exam and a project coming up, so might as well list a bunch of these comparisons:>Soul<Soulless>Mario Party 1-8<Everything else (portable versions, 9, 10, Super, etc.)>Mario Baseball and Strikers games<All other Mario sports-related games>Nintendo DSi and 3DS ware<Nintendo Wii non-VC ware, Wii U eShop and Switch Online System>Spongebob BfBB<Spongebob BfBB: Rehydrated>Most companies EA has consumed<EA>Most indie devs<Any big corporate video game company (including Nintendo)>Physical copies of things (games, movies, books, etc.)<Virtual copies of things>Precise midi files with theoretically perfect timing<High-budget orchestrated video game music>Remix that is faithful to the original tone/theme of the song<Remix that is just EDM with various riffs of the song>Bluegrass<Country>Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous by Good Charlotte<American Idiot by Green Day>Literally any other season of Family Guy>Family Guy Season 19 (every episode)>Conventional media or subversive media to reveal an actual blind spot<Subversive media to be unique/tell a story from the author's personal misrepresentation of reality>Stick figures<Whatever the Hell calart/chibi garbage people make nowadays>Earbuds in the store<Earbuds online, coming from whatever third world manufacturer Amazon buys from that doesn't even use proper glue or working components>Pikmin 2<Pikmin 3>>43043
That's all I could come up with, but my general methodology relies on soulful original concept vs. soulless remake/corruption of the original.
They could have gone with any other late 2000s/early 2010s characters, but people stuck their flags into Pepe and Wojak. At least trollface still sees occasional usage and, once in a blue moon, cereal guy.
