Hades Is the Greatest Roguelike Game of 2020

Hades Part 1: I guess it's a 2019 game if you count early access. If you enjoy any of DemonCrawl, Slay the Spire, or Enter the Gungeon, you'll love this. Hades is the only game I've played off-stream in the past two months, and that's saying a lot since it's not a puzzle game.
Edited by: BenBenRanger ( BenBenRanger)
Hades is a roguelike dungeon crawler where you role play Zagreus, the son of Hades, to escape the underworld. Use several type of weapons and hundreds of upgrades to grow more powerful to face four floors of difficult action and boss fights. Can the Greek gods lead you to victory?

  • I hope this game hasn't been played out, because I've LOVED playing it so far! I also think I undersold the strategy/decision making aspect of this game. It wouldn't be a rougelike game without strategy.

    • you're only bad at dodging that at the end because you are to greedy when it comes to getting damage in. First priority is always dodging, then just get the damage in you can, you're gonna win eventually.

    • most of the entire Hades community would recommend controller. Also, heads-up: epilogue takes 150+ wins to reach.

  • One thing: Get a controller for action games! While the point of roguelites and roguelikes are to become better over time, which makes backseat gaming a bit moot, there is one thing that massively improves the way an action game like Hades feels, which is playing with a controller as it's intended. The reason you feel like you are bad at dodging is because you can only dodge in the direction of the WASD keys. With a controller dodging feels MUCH better, and becomes second nature. Since the game is heavily designed around dodging and weaving attacks, it is very important to be good at dodging to feel powerful at the later levels. The new Xbox Series controller is probably the best bet, and easiest to get going on PC, but the Playstation controllers are decent now too.

  • I have played Hades for the past month and I have done 58 escape attempts out of which 7 were successful. Btw deflect doesn't make you destroy the projectiles but literally deflects them back at the caster. You can destroy projectiles even with normal attacks. The sword special is pretty good for that bcs it destroys all the projectiles around you. Gl in your future runs

  • I'm a huge fan of all of Supergiant Games' games (even Pyre), and I'm really glad to see their latest release getting some widespread appeal. One thing I will say is that it's much easier to play with a controller, it will mostly solve your issue of missing shots that look like they hit. The aim assist is generally pretty good at hitting what you want.

  • Hades is a roguelite. Notice the t. The difference in the two genres is that in roguelites you power yourself up inbetween runs, so that you don't actually start from 0 each time. Slay the Spire and Gungeon are roguelikes. K. You gain no power after you die, and every run you start from the same state.

  • I would recommend using a controller for this game, I am a keyboard player myself, but for some games using a controller is way easier, the aiming of certain abilities in this game is really bad with mouse and keyboard, also the keybinds are super bad! There is a little learning curve with controller but I think it's worth it for this game! I hope to see more of this here since Hades is a super fun game and I love to see people explore it and play it! Also, love your videos man, you always got such a positive outlook on everything and it's refreshing to see, also you play all the games I love so that helps
