Without watching the vid I saw some article like "Genshin uses anticheat software when running…".
Say what?

Its not a true single player game.

Its a shitshow combination of single player advertising, gotcha mechanics, mmo inspired, mobile influenced, server connection, daily login, coop mash bullshit.

Its all the things.
Sometimes putting all the things makes a good stew. Othertimes it makes something a dog won't eat.

How about all games have a single huge lootbox you pay for up front that contains all the options, items, skins, unlocks etc? I'd pay for that!!

The game is getting quite high praise in Metacritic so I decided to install it and try it. It's free, so what's the harm, right?

Well… it's not for me. I'm glad for all those people who apparently are having the time of their life but as far as I could play, the game is just borderline malware.

It' free to try?
Well… Is it at least 16+? I'm kinda irritated past few years with anything less than that.

It's free to play, you download it, create an account and play it. You are given the first "hero" for free, and unlock more through gameplay. The heroes are divided in rarities, as typical in mobile/gacha games, classified in star levels. Five-star heroes seem to be the rarest and therefor, coolest/sexiest/strongest, and almost impossible to get without investing a healthy amount of real money into the gacha system, which I suppose it's where they'll get their revenue from, along the xp boosts necessary to bring both the heroes and their weapons up to the max level, which you can also get slowly through gameplay, or just pay for the instant boost.

It's a game prone to whaling, that you can play and enjoy at your own pace, knowing that others will pay more than you and get more, better and easier rewards because of it. If that doesn't bother you, you may still enjoy it. As I said.. not my thing, but again, it's getting great praise from regular users, so there may be something to it.

It almost looks interesting, but the gacha mechanics are a very big no for me, too, unfortunately. Oh, well, some people will like it, I guess.
