I find Lego games on the Xbox One too hard.
I was lucky enough to get my first gaming machine when I was around 4 years old. I had a ZX Spectrum 128k as well as access to a Rowtron console system. Since then I’ve gone through many systems including an Amiga 500, a couple of Ataris, a Master System, Mega Drive, SNES, Playstation One and every Xbox from the original all the way up to the One X. I’ve also tried my hand at many a PC and arcade game in the past.
I am by no means shit at computer games. I’ve completed a lot in my lifetime. I’m not the type to want to ‘pwn tha n00bs’ but I do like to win and If I can’t play to a certain standard (usually mid-table, occasionally higher) then I’ll check out and try something different. As a result I have been known to throw out the odd swear word here and there (and break the odd pad back in the days of Tekken III when people would basically cheat and button mash with Eddie.)
Directions have never really been my strong point, I get lost going down blind alleys in Red Dead Redemption II and regularly try and climb over insurmountable mountains in Elder Scrolls Online. So I accept that following relatively basic instructions may not be my forte but fuck me, the sheer obtuse-ness of some of the puzzles in Lego : Avengers left me feeling stupid as well as directionally challenged
It’s a game and a series I desperately would love to like but alas, it’ll never be. I’m hoping that by putting this up, eventually Google might find some lost wondering soul looking for an explanation as to why a game that seems to be marketed to people of all ages seems to be so feckin’ confusing.
(I’m not sure why this has become an issue for me now, maybe the talk of Lego Masters where I live or just seeing it lurking in the cupboard when I reach in to get replacement batteries for a pad or something.)
(And yes, there are far more important things in the world but this is the type of small and insignificant irritant that seeps its way into my consciousness in Covid-19 lock down.)
