Didn't know about Hacker Memory being hated. I know about some reused things but 100 additional digimons made it fun to play.They push out a game every year with very little content and now they've removed most Pokemon. The series is so successful they don't need to put in effort as they'll sell 20 million a year matter what. They keep cutting content yet keep getting high scores and sales. If Digimon suddenly became that successful they could half ass all their games too. Pokemon has discovered they can push out mediocre content and have their fans defend it, because of such strong brand loyalty. Digimon has to put out good content as much as possible because it'll effect them if they have a terrible game.
Hackers memory vs Pokemon ultra sun is a relevant example. Hackers was constantly shit on for reusing too much content even tho it has 100 new dudes and a new story. Ultra was the exact same game with a few new alternate forms and attacks etc and was highly praised. Get to that level of success and you don't have to put out good content.
To Pokemon, yup pretty much of it. Cloning and redesign Pokemon generations although if it wasn't meant to be on intentions but even villian organizations to wear silly costumes.... It does look very fun to look at new Pokemon monsters but when it comes to playing the games, I really don't... Feel like it. It's like... I knew what to do. There, simple as that. It became robotic chores to perform tasks to raise. There is no "Caring" by interacting with them to feel or raise... I'm not even favoring shinies or selecting movesets to manipulate for four slots to learn or other methods that takes efforts to do.
I collected every single Digimon to max in Cyber Sleuth series to enjoy their special attack animations and use them for drawing purposes from taking screenshots of their models. 2D or 3D models doesn't matter as long as Digimon games have to introduce certain unused Digimon ones and newer ones so I can play to see how they do. If it's RPG-like genre, I simply buy it and enjoy looking at their animations in any ways. If it's Tamer Raising genre, I surely have to put efforts in raising which I find it very fun to raise under pressures. In Pokemon games, there is nothing to admire at or raise with care... I guess I lost my touch already.
Obviously I think it's mini game to raise/feed/toilet time under strict conditions and being pressured to take care of part is the Digimon's strongest trait. Easily, having desired strongest Digimon partner is kinda Stress Reliever? I guess? Careful play is favored maybe?
