    Lol I will, I actually will. I debate it from time to time. I'm actually pretty funny about watching movies, I really do have to be in a certain mood. It might take me years to get around to something that sounded interesting at one point, then at other times I'll just read the description of something I never heard of before, like "Don't Tell A Soul", and think "that's it, I'm gonna watch that RIGHT now".

    xD I do the same thing with games so I can understand. I have such a huge backlog that I just keep saying I'm going to totally play someday.. yeah sure..

    Oh yeah, for games it's even worse. It's so easy to get games these days, I remember when I was a kid and it was a weekend treat to rent a single NES game. Now I have probably 100 games from all corners of the internet, and Switch downloads, and any number of oddball finds that I've never actually sat down and given proper time to. It's kind of a waste to be honest, I should slow down. But it's hard when I get a game like DBD and get hooked, and then tend to forget most of them. I play it like crazy then suddenly the next big hook comes along and the lesser things, which may be fantastic, stay forgotten.

    An embarrassment of riches, really.

    As much as I love Nightmare on Elm Street. The dlc is just bad. Unlike Michael Myers or Amanda's power, which catch the feeling of playing these iconic character and against. Freddy's power doesn't catch the feeling that you're playing an iconic dream demon, but a bland, basic, boring killer that has nothing unique to him. Springwood is a really annoying map for killers and Quentin is well... not Quentin.

    For sure. I've bought games in the past with the intention of "omg this is going to be the next best thing, I'm going to sink 100s of hours into this!!".. until when I do buy it, I play it for a few hours and end up never touching it again. It's not that it's a bad game, it's that I have other games such as DBD that are on my priority list and take up most of my day. I have yet to find a game besides Overwatch that has captured my attention as much as this game does.

    To be fair though, I've been cutting down on that habit and haven't bought too many new games recently. However, I must admit I'm eyeing up the new Evil Dead game and plan to buy it day one.. reminds me of Friday The 13th & looks promising.

    Same here, minus the Overwatch mention (never played it, I normally don't play games online). I was given a Switch Lite two years ago and went crazy buying so many titles for it - more than 150 at last count - because the system has thousands of games and usually 600 - 1000 of them are on sale at any given time. When you can get a game for $5 to $15 bucks it's so easy to just pick one up here, pick one up there. And some of them seem like incredible games. Some of them ARE incredible games. But then for one reason or another I'll only putz around with them for a short time and think "this is going to be so cool to play once I'm done with game X" and before I know it I'm so wrapped up in game X that I forget all about the other game, even though I paid for it and had every intention of playing it.

    Hell, Monstrum (almost a single-player DBD, kind of) is THE game that convinced me that I wanted the Lite, because I was over the moon at the idea of a portable version of one of my favorite games ever. It was delayed and I waited like half a year before finally getting it. But by then I had so many other games for the system that I've only put a few hours into Monstrum, lol.

    But that movie is great. Honestly the question is asking which license in the game is the worst, not their respective films. But nightmare on elm street is not a good chapter.

    Same! Those damn PS Plus sales.. they make me go broke every damn time😭😭and now you have the Steam Summer Sale coming up.. oh boy.. hold my wallet..

    Also just out of curiosity, do you play DBD on Switch? If so, that must be terrible. I have DBD on Switch myself and the survivor face models don't load in.. lol..

    Probably Halloween. I'm just not a fan of any of it.

  • Torsti56Torsti56 Member Posts: 259

    I must say Nightmare on Elm Street. We got wrong Freddy. I only like OG Freddy and this Remake Freddy sucks.

  • miketheratguymiketheratguy Member Posts: 2,719

    It's official: This forum is insane. :P

    It actually really isn't! Though I play on the Lite, specifically, and I've read that the game performs better in portable form, strangely enough. No glitches at all that I remember. Certainly nothing as serious as missing face models, lol.

    Seriously, it's crazy fun to sit there in bed, in the dark, and play the game. I also played it while in a hotel and in my van while vacationing across a few states. I've also told people that my proudest DBD moment thus far was when I needed to charge the Lite and went into a crowded Walmart on a Friday night and plugged it into the wall where they keep the motorized carts. Standing there, up on my feet, in a bright, loud, distracting Walmart interior, as people were constantly going past me, I managed to get a 4K with Michael Myers.

    Oh wow.. I stand corrected!

    No but seriously, whenever I play DBD on the Switch (and this was a long time ago because it was so bad), not only was it extremely laggy, but the maps are way darker than other platforms & I wasn't used to the controls. I bought a Switch for portability and therefore always want to play it in handheld mode, but I just can't get the hang of the controls when playing DBD even if I change them.

    With that being said.. I plan to buy the Hori controllers for the Switch and the first game I'm going to try is DBD.. so let's hope it fixes my problem.

    Ah, it's just opinion. There are a few Switch / Lite players here on the forum and we seem to all enjoy the game on that console, but I have no doubt there are others that have good reasons for hating it. Well, maybe anyway. The game is basically a 1:1 port of the PC version, just with some lower res textures here and there and 30 FPS instead of 60. The game IS dark, at least darker than my monitor, but if I jack the Lite's brightness settings to max it's not all that bad. For me it would be difficult to hate it. Fire it up again if it's been a while, it may have been updated with some glitch fixes since you played it last?

    If I remember correctly the controls ARE slightly different in that I think the position of the A and B buttons are different on the Lite than they are on the 360 controller, which is what I use to play all my PC games (heresy, I know lol). Speaking of controls the very first thing I bought for the Switch was a snap-on set of hand grips which also makes a BIG difference. I simply can't comfortably play the Lite because it's basically a flat console with the sticks very close to the edge. This thing here made things so, SO much better.

    Hot NOES take: I love the second film and think the third one is mediocre

  • Karao_KeKarao_Ke Member Posts: 1,216

    I'll definitely have to try those out and give the game another chance because playing DBD on the go is really fun, I have to admit.

    I also want to point out that I don't hate playing on Switch at all, but since I have other options I'd rather not. I experienced 2 years of 30 FPS & lag on PS4, don't really feel like replicating the same thing on Switch..
