    Really?
    I didn't find it that difficult. Thought it struck a good balance difficulty wise.

    I commend you for that. This was the most exhausting and emotionally ripping game I've ever played. I am so glad it's over. I absolutely loved and hated it. The question of "Are video games art?" has been around for decades. This game is incredible..From a technical standpoint, Unreal Engine 5 is going to blow us away..

    I'm speechless. It was seriously one of the best gaming experiences I've had..

    :D @ using the word 'procreating'. Made me laugh. Hmm I don't remember it to be that difficult either. I had to consult a guide for a couple of puzzles. Was actually considering reinstalling the game this weekend.

    Edit: Did you actually break your phone? And why your phone? :D

    Procreating is what the guru3d forums automatically substitutes for the F word. For a game that takes most people 7-9 hours to complete it took me over 30. And yes I broke my phone, why? I'll keep that to myself. Years of physical/mental anxiety, combined with drinking, and all the BS happening in the world is a hell of a combination. I can now laugh at breaking my phone, that's the least of my worries. In fact it's actually relief in a way. Congrats Ninja Theory, you really screwed with my head. Excellent game and I'm so glad I'm done with it!

    On a serious note fellas. I never thought I would see a game in my life that could even compare with the emotional and dramatic ending of Ocarina Of Time. Well, this game did it. That's all I gotta say.

    Edit: I kept the save file for the final level so I can keep replaying it without going through the entire game. And more before that so if anybody wants them just let me know. I know this game came out like 3 years ago but you know people like me are just now discovering it.

    If you just wanna watch the end.
    Major Spoilers. Me playing the last part of Hellblade @ 1440p max settings with hdr enabled.



    VS.



    All I can say is video games are awesome. The contrast between 20 years is amazing. Hollywood has nothing on this.

    This is a better fight. Spoilers obviously. The prequel is the only game I'm looking forward to right now.

    i didn't like Hellblade but im sure glad i bought and finished it a while ago. it felt bizarre, too dramatic, and boring in my eyes. game was disappointing compared to Plague Tale for example which was far superior. i can't say Hellblade is not a quality title, but the entire mental health\voices theme and so on was very exaggerated. Steam reviews praised it, bought and installed it, and i remember it looked extremely interesting and fresh compared to a lot of mediocre and repetitive titles, but as i progressed.. it went downhill for me. i would recommend buying and finishing it for it's uniqueness. this is just my take on it.

    I largely agree.

    It was alright - the movement speed was excruciatingly slow throughout the game though.

    Yea it took me a month to finish what was supposed to be a 6-7 hour game. It was very frustrating and I was constantly checking youtube guides to learn how to progress. But in the end, it was a total mind frack and screwed with my head. It really is a unique game that I absolutely loved once I completed it.

    A Plague Tale Innocence, that is a great game! No arguing that. But you can't deny that Hellblade is one of the best looking games ever. Hellblade 2 on the new Unreal engine is going to be epic.

    If you go in expecting Witcher 3... you're going to have a bad time.

    Hellblade is completely different.
    But is absolutely brilliant.

    Oh I understand. Between Steam, Origin, Epic, GOG, Ubisoft, Rockstar, etc I have around 300 games. But I only keep around 12-15 installed at once.
