I have an idea for a video game

I'm not sure what to call it, but the way it works is, you have a hero, and he has a number floating over his head. Now all around you are monsters, and they have numbers floating over their heads. When you click on a monster, if that monster's number is lower than your number, then your hero defeats that monster, and your number increases by the monster's number. However, if the monster's number is higher, the monster defeats you.

The strategy comes in where, sometimes, you might think a number looks lower than your number, but it's actually higher. For example, you might think, 8, why that looks lower than 6. But you'd be wrong. It turns out that 8 is higher than 6. If you clicked on the monster with the 8, you'd lose even though you thought you were going to defeat that monster

actually i saw someone defending the game (i think?), saying that, if you think this is bad / if you're saying this is bad then horizon, borderlands and high on life is bad also, which, like

sometimes this is a lot to take

I liked borderlands (the original). Although I played it with a friend and we mostly ignored all the dialog.

I finally started playing Hades and the guy in that is kinda quippy, but it's been working for me. I think it's just the voice actor carrying it?

The voice actors are all very good, and there's some kind of dry flinty effect added to the voices that's subtle and hard to describe but it really worked for me. I enjoyed listening to Hades characters talk.

Borderlands is good but kinda dull compared with modern games

Borderlands 2 is a masterpiece

Borderlands the Pre-Sequel is really good if you're into the story of Borderlands 2

Borderlands 3 is pretty good, good moments, but not spectacular

Wonderlands sucks

"Forspoken" is such a bad name, it's like the name of an in-universe video game that Bart Simpson wants for Christmas
