What is "hate complete"? Well it's like hate f-

It's when you play a game from start to the credits even though you hate the game. I started Bloodborne I fear I might finish it despite feeling about 90 % of the design choices are ill-suited for my preferences. I am compelled.

Have I ever hate completed before? Yes: Mass Effect. I expected Baldur's Gate on (at the time) next-gen hardware, and instead got a shooter that felt like frothy dough and systems that afforded little creative play. Still, I was invested to see the finish line. So when the credits finally rolled, I sat there feeling empty and stupid. Don't be me kids.

Then I played Mass Effect 2 and loved it. I r moron.

How about you?

When I played Diablo III I didn't complete it but I played longer than I wanted to because I hated it so much. They seem to have cleaned it up a bit with better loot progression and the meta game of collecting cube abilities but the whole thing was disappointing.

Some might call that "giving it your best shot" :D I'm guessing you had fond memories of earlier entries?

Some things that happened early on in CrossCode really rubbed me the wrong way, and I was about to quit early, but decided to press on out of spite. There was a big turning point in the middle where I suddenly found something to care about in the story, and slowly over time I got used to the mechanics that I hadn't liked at first. By the time I finished the expansion, I'd fallen completely in love and it's now one of my absolute favorite games. Sometimes things work out!

I have a story to beat all of yours.

When I was a younger geek I kept a long list of all NES games I had played to completion and took pride in adding titles to the list.

But there was a game that eluded me -- NES Gauntlet. Waiting at the end of that game, if you can even get there, is a difficult dragon fight.

I discovered a trick. If you can get there with two players and have one player strategically sacrifice himself to die directly in front of the dragon, he'll leave a pile of stuff that will block some of the dragon fire.

So I trained my little brother to play Gauntlet with me so that he could become my sacrifice. He hated it more than me. "Why do we have to keep playing this game!?" But I was the older brother so he had to do what I said. I went on to defeat the dragon and reach the ending, stepping over the corpse of my brother who had been trained to die for my glory, and add that title to my list.

...

You overcame your hate! And reminded me to play CrossCode. Have seen their new game? Looks real good.

Oh you're definitely in the lead so far. You're a monster AND you subverted the topic with proxy-hate completion.

Whoa dang, I hadn't! I knew they were working on one, but I didn't know it was so far along already. I just watched the pre-alpha video from August, and this looks like it's going to be a treat.

I feel like we could call this a God of War-ization, as in, they're taking a pretty known gameplay, and just making it far more pleasant to play than anyone before.

On topically, I didn't exactly hate completing GoW18, but it was about 20 hours too long, seeing as the story dragged out. When you repeat the same boss 5-6 times, you DON'T have content for length of the game :D
