i am new to Suda51's universe but am very interested in it. as of recently i played through the silver case and the 25th ward. theyre bundled together as a rebooted switch port.

i really like these. they're more like visual novels where sometimes you input something, but the presentation is unique and feels much more dynamic than what i would expect out of a visual novel. the plot, characters, and settings are galaxy brained in a very interesting way.

to their credit, these are games where i felt like i never knew much of what was happening, but in a way that kept me interested to keep going rather than it getting frustrated. thats hard to achieve, i think. tbh even after finishing them i kinda wish i understood some stuff better. feels like the kinda thing where i'd love to hear some analyses or whatever but they must not be popular enough for there to be videos on that.

to continue on this journey, i just started Flower, Sun, and Rain. as i understand it it happens between the 2 games i have played, so maybe this will answer some questions (although so far it's felt like whenever I get one answer i get 10 more questions too).

just sharing. i'll update if i think of anything to add or explore other games. are you familiar with these games/universe/etc? i'd love to hear your thoughts!

also feel free to chill in here and have a good time

hello cursedsynth... i love the Look of suda51 games a lot. unfortunately when i tried to read (well watch an lp of) silver case i just couldn't stick with it, so i'm not particularly eager to look at 25th ward or fsr either.... but killer7 and no more heroes both kick ass !!!!!

also, he wrote a manga that's connected to his games (well everything he makes is connected lol), it's been translated here :bighappy:

(also another one called "red, blue, and green" that i can't find right now aaaugh sorry)

i admit right before going on this kick i played deadly premonition for the first time and i loved that too. i think i read theyre collaborating on a game so maybe if they fight they just end up hugging and making some awesome shit.

i am imagining both of them yelling like in dragon ball z and turning super saiyan tho

i think suda. i tried playing deadly premonition a few years ago and immediately got a migraine that lasted 2 days. i tried playing the missing and i got depressed and laid down on the floor of my room for 2 hours. i appreciate their work but i have never enjoyed a swery game.

killer7 is cool. suda did that one right. that one owns

every single character in this game is the most annoying person imaginable in their own unique way. honestly quite an achievement. i respect it

i started playing through the No More Heroes games. it didnt seem like itd be much my thing tbh, but i read that there were some connections to the Silver Case and the 25th Ward lorewise which i really liked.

playing through 1 and 2, they were about what i expected, but i had more fun than i thought i would. pretty shallow but fun. though i wasnt scratching the itch i had for what i liked about Suda.

but playing Travis Strikes Again, I really like this one. very meta type of game, a bit of a self indulgent love letter to video games, but not in an eyerolly pretentious way imo. its fun, and has more to dig into than the previous NMH games. a bunch of characters from other Suda games make appearances or are referenced, including some from ones I haven't gotten to yet.

no idea if NMH3 is gonna be more like this. maybe ill play that too
