columns 3 is better than puyo puyo

on Tue Mar 27, 2018 11:11 pm
1. easier
why are you spending a million billion hours trying to git gud at a game with built in rng? this kind of complete uncertainty would be unacceptable in a fighting game, street fighter 5 for example is rife with uncertainty and is literally only being played because konami is paying people to. saying that puyo puyo has competitive viability is like saying that mario kart has competitive viability. unless you really really want to see masked prince in tsu (just look it up on youtube) you have no reason to practice for single player, you can clear most games with 3 chains easy. stop pretending that any work youre going to put in is going to matter and play the game that understands that it's for parties.
2. you can attack when you feel like it
puyo puyo is a deceptively passive game. unless you're actively harassing your opponent most of a round is probably just going to be building your chains and waiting for them to finish. you charge up, trigger then wait, and then the game decides by itself who loses based on who's numbers are bigger. in columns you are always in control of when and where to attack, chaining is really more a game of building your mana than the attack itself. it's a constant tug o' war of power that puyo puyo just cant match on a fundamental level
3. better status effects
why can slots mode in 20th swap your fields even when your opponent is very heavily clogged? i don't even need to discuss the rest of the differences. this question is powerful enough on its own
4. the floor rises instead of garbage dropping from above
columns has the perfect punishment, hurting you without hurting your setups like puyo and without the possibility of benefiting you like the free tetris garbage holes in tetris. as if there isn't enough incentive not to practice chains in puyo, at any time your opponent can just dump a 3 chain on you at any time and none of your skill actually mattered because he knows about timed hits. honestly what is puyo without chaining? columns strikes the perfect balance that incentivizes you to build your chains as fast as possible without punishing you for actually trying. the only reason that columns 3 never had a competitive scene is because it doesnt appeal to the call of duty kiddies and it doesnt appeal to the basement dwelling weeaboos who want green dragon girls to nasally yell sweet nothings into their ears, ie the two main competitive gamers
in conclusion: if you like puyo better than columns you have bad taste and are part of the problem that killed vs puzzle games

There's one thing it can't do, 'spinning'. It only changes patterns in a fixed shape, puyos do spin clockwise and anticlockwise.

Either that or anti clockwise, because, they quite use that word mostly in my area.
