Hades. Fuck Yeah!

A bit late to the party, I downloaded Hades on my Switch a few weeks ago, and Oh-My-God. I haven’t enjoyed a videogame so much in a really long long time.

I have been passionate about videogame since I was a kid but, as I grow older, I find less and less time to play them. At the same time, whenever I may have some time to dedicate to them, I prefer to focus on other things.

As much as I like the fact that video games are getting more and more recognitions, I don’t have the time (nor the patience anymore) to sit through a ten minutes video every time a mission starts (looking at you RDR2). When I turn on my Switch it’s because I want to dive into the action, whether it is a strategy game or a rogue like action videogame like Hades. Basically, what I am looking for are 30 minutes of pure gaming, no intermezzi, no videos, no explanations. Just. Let. Me. Play.

During the last few years I found a few video games able to pull this off really well. The first ones that come to mind are Into The Breach, Hollow Knight, Dead Cells, and Zelda: Breath of the Wild. As you may have noticed, the first 3 are all indie games and I think that’s where my days as a video gamer are heading.

Anyway, going back to Hades...

Hades ticks all the boxes I was looking for in a videogame:

I am clearly not the only thinking it like this since Hades a record 98.9% of positives reviews on Steam.

If you haven’t done it yet, do yourself a favor and try it.
