is it just me or is this game overrated ?
>>
>>209105
i've always thought that people call games overrated just for the sake of being contrarian but honestly yes. among us is very overrated and you can thank reddit for that.
>>
>>209105
>Open youtube
>Search: Corpsehusband
>look at his abysmal content
Yep.
>>
>>209105
The memes are what made this game popular. Once the memes die out, so will the game.
>>
>>209105
Not just you. People who are in the autistic spectrum usually don't get the appeal of this game because it requires abstract perception
>>
i thing it s great when you have friend. which we don t have as you know it
>>
>>209105
It is, but its the not the games fault. The game is enjoyable, and even quite good, for what it is.

The hype for it though is wild.
>>
>>209105
It's better than Town of Salem at least
>>
>>209105
It's a very solid social game. I happen to love social games; Diplomacy might be my favorite board game, I played a ton of Town of Salem, I always like to play mafia-esque board games with friends. Among Us is very popular so I have friends who play it, runs on a toaster or a fucking phone so everyone can play it, and has a genuine skill curve while still being highly accessible. If you have real friends to play it with, what's not to like?
>>
>>210093
>has a genuine skill curve

No.
>>
It’s just trouble in terrorist town, isn’t it?
>>
It is all of the games are the same shit its only fun with friends for like 3 games and randoms are fucking awful to play with because they think they're either being funny by doing something retarded or just say ___ sus then that person gets voted off with no evidence
>>
>>210317
Not very interested in arguing with you on this one but I believe a better player will win a lobby, especially as imposter, a very large portion of the time.
>>
>>209105
Like all multpilayer games, it depends who you play with. I have a small group of people I play games with every Saturday, and this is usually our warm-up game.
>>
>>209105
any of these "mafia" games are perfect for normalfags, which is why you hear about it more often
>>
>>209105
Its severly overrated but i would say its fun once as a while like a party game or board game would be.
>>
>>210954
isn't that what it's meant to be? the original release didn't even have servers, it was LAN only. content creators jumped on it because it was easy to learn and it was easy content for youtube/twitch. then the normies came because among us is like babby's first social game

it's as good/fun as the people you play it with.

Is it just me or even through all the hype did anybody actually rate this game highly? Everyone knew there was nothing to it, it was just a simple way to get a group of friends together for fun. It reminded me of playing a card game like poker with friends, nobody cares about the game people just wanted to do something together during covid.

this. I feel like that about any game that becomes too popular,just the sheer amount of shit twitter memes and that you can't go anywhere on the internet without at least hearing about it once,and after a while it just becomes tiring.

It's a stripped down version of Space Station 13 in my opinion, so yeah.
>>
>>209105
I am not a Monster did it better, but the devs killed that game with their stupidity.

Eville is still in early access and is dead but is mechanically more complex and a much more interesting game overall. I hope that one gets popular at some point.

It's fun if you actually have good friends to play it with. Playing with random people online just sounds boring.

The game is fun as hell when you play with the right people.

Normies ruin it, when it first started getting passed around the best time I had with it was when /v/ was spamming lobby threads and we were just our usual shitlord selves for eight hours at a time and making fun of each other.

Seriously just make a random lobby thread on /v/ or /vg/ and it's fun as hell. Outside of playing with our memelord faggots such as ourselves? Absolutely not, it's a massive pain in the dick.

>>
>>209105
I wouldn't say its overrated, maybe I'm not looking in the right places but its not like everyone is calling it a 10/10 masterpiece of gaming or whatever. Its genuinely a lot of fun, its free on phones and cheap on pc, its basically a flash game so anyone can run it, it takes no mechanical skill to play well, its art style is cute, simplistic, and inoffensive, games are quick so its easy to play a game or two if you're bored, and the pandemic has starved a ton of normalfags of social interaction so they get it by playing this instead. Its a perfect blend for widespread appeal that lucked out and blew up after being rediscovered well after its release.

Not really, it blew up in popularity during covid since it's a social game which was perfect but I think everyone already knows that. Great game to get a group of friends over a discord chat and play together. Free for phones, easy to download on pc. My single friends, married friends, friends with kids, and even my gf plays it. Gonna be updates and a new map soon so we'll see how long it can cling on to relevancy

Nah it's a good time with friends.

Youtubers playing the game with other Youtubers is a codependent relationship that helps market everyone involved in the content and is so blatantly obvious, but the game itself acts as an accessible niche for a lot of people.

It probably wouldn't have reached the same level of popularity without the quarantine though.

Its the pseudo social culture that has been rising as of late, especially among the younger generation. These social games are driven by people watching popular streamers. The streamers are putting on an act/façade to entertain people. But the viewers see their interactions and their fun, and they want to be them. They want the friends they're playing with. They want to be cool. So they start playing these games in hopes of emulating what they see online. Even though many times it doesn't represent real life and isn't a good substitute for real life socializing. You've also got the whole disillusion that viewers want to be friends with the streamers. Giving them money and spamming chat in hopes they'll get recognized by their "friend" on the screen.

For what it is, a casual game meant to be played by casual, non-gamer people, it's pretty good. Though of course it falls apart as soon as anyone tries to play it seriously (all you have to do is have everyone stick together and rotate through the jobs). So yes, it's overrated as it's no masterpiece, but still reasonably fun with the right crowd and fairly accessible.

the game is as good as the people you're playing it with

if you play with shitty mouth breathers who don't understand the game you find out who the imposter is by the second meeting

if you play with sweaty tryhards who memorized every aspect of the game they'll constantly be accusing everyone of being imposter and ruin the game

it's about finding friends who aren't retards and understand the basic concept of the game but don't study the wiki before playing to have a good time with this game

just play the mobile version for free or find a different game that's exactly the same as this one and you'll have a good time with your friends stabbing them in the back/being stabbed in the back

tl;dr it's just mafia but in a videogame form

Being imposter like a stealth game but with real people, with even having to fake tasks by fauxing how many seconds you pretend to do them, and figuring out where everyone is to kill discretely, and it has a need of psychological understanding as well when it comes to pretending to be a regular crewmate
