This here is a perfect example of how Binning a game doesn’t necessarily mean it’s bad.
RRDDD has the coolest title ever and is a lot of fun to play. The controls are responsive, it’s the most vibrant thing in the known universe, the gameplay is distilled down to perfectly simple rules and there’s lots of room for builing upon it. I really, really like this game a lot and I think it’d be a blast to play with friends.
That’s the kicker- the single player content is entirely based on bot matches and score-attack tyle gameplay. Bot matches are fun but score attack has never been my kind of thing- endless arcade games and the like never hold my attention for very long, regardless of how fun the game is. I need something to work towards in a single-player game, beyond “beat my own high score”, and RRDDD doesn’t have that.
Fin or Bin:
I’ll definitely keep it around and installed to play a few bot matches every now and then, but in the context of this backlog challenge I consider it done with, and will move onto another game. Hopefully I’ll get to take it out of the Bin once in a while if some friends pick it up during a sale.
(Steam Link – it’s good, grab the 4-pack during a sale and get some games going)
