Title
Great gameplay
While the dialogue isn't great, this is an indie game made by two people, and I don't mind it. It speaks to a very specific audience, and some people won't enjoy the story. What nobody can disagree on is that the gameplay is amazingly good. I have about 150 hours on the game, counting, and there is still so much to improve. I don't think I'll ever get tired, especially with all the mods that are out there. This is a game where you need to mod it, but that is certainly not a negative.

the music and visuals are top-notch and the gameplay is incredible. only downsides are that the story/dialogue was too melodramatic and some of the sections with moving enemies were annoying. but overall this game is a masterpiece.

Title
Celeste might be one of the few games that manages to keep its early-game feeling of awe and excitement and carry it through the whole game. It was designed perfectly. The game gets harder as you get better. It teaches its gameplay lessons through experience and dying just becomes another way to teach. It never overstay its welcome and offers challenges for players who want more. I see a lot of people that really connected to the story, but I think it was a surprisingly bare story. It turns out, this was a good thing. Often I find games that try to deal with topics like depression or anxiety end up "overdoing it" in an attempt to force you to either empathize or relate. If the game has to handhold you to get you to feel anything, you know it wasn't done very well. But Celeste just lets the game do most of the talking rather than long text boxes. I don't think I have a single complaint. Some of the most fun I've had playing a game

Title
As a mechanically tight precision platformer with undeniably charming presentation and a humble but resonant story about mental health, this game was a respectable 8/10 when I finally conquered Celeste Mountain after more deaths than I care to admit. However, long-term memorability and resonance have ultimately made me bump up my score to a 9, recognizing that my memories of this game are more valuable to me than the immediate act of having played it. You see, ever since finishing Celeste, it has established itself as one of those precious few works of art that my mind is inadvertently drawn to whenever I am mentally in a rough spot. In those moments, images of Madeline's solitary struggle amidst the windswept mountain cliffs of the Golden Ridge chapter bubble up from the depths of my mind, while my heart longs for Lena Raine's somber piano melodies and introspective ambient soundscapes. I may never actually replay this game, but tracks like Quiet and Falling have become one of my go-to musical remedies against lighter forms of depression and anxiety, while In the Mirror, with its wailing drones and haunted whispers, can help me accentuate and focus on more severe negative feelings in a way that ultimately helps me overcome them more quickly. Also trans rights.

    decent tight gameplay but the story is what really broke this for me. just didnt feel authentic or real enough, feels like a commodified depiction of mental illness that is nicely wrapped in a tight bow by the end of the game. by the credits roll i felt even less than i did completing super meat boy, which is a pretty significant failure for me considering super meat boy has zero story.

    i also dont feel like the game was brutal enough in difficulty, i didnt truly get the scale of climbing the mountain and conquering it because it was just too fucking easy (especially the last chapter, jesus what a letdown). the only actually hard parts are the b-sides, which are easily the best part of the game and honestly should have just been the primary levels in the main story. its a shame that the only reason to really complete the b-sides is for completionists sake. i havent tried the expansion because the main game was so disappointing but someday i probably will.

      Finished it. I like it. There were certain bad moments, and much of the game relies on muscle memory rather than actual skill, but those were just moments. I also liked the story.

    man I dunno about this one. everyone says the controls are great, but half the time Madeline just didn't go in the direction I told her to (especially when trying to go diagonally). plus so much BS level elements, like those snowballs that come out of nowhere and are impossible to dodge if you're at the end of the screen. that's just not good design.

    maybe precision platformers just aren't for me, but then again, I really liked Super Meat Boy so
