I'm guessing Drake is just easy to play

13 replies 182 views Edited Feb 10, 2013

Because from the viewpoint of having never played him, he seems a bit more complicated.

 

Some of you may have noticed that I've been bouncing around characters a bunch with my threads here. The current character I'm trying out is, of course, Drake, since he's been suggested to me multiple times (Dante also has; may try him out soon). 

 

I'm pretty surprised with how well I adapted to his playstyle. I'm playing him nearly as well as I do my Spike and PaRappa and I've only used him for less than a full day. It's blowing my mind, really.

 

I'm winning a fair amount of matches and the thing is, with the way I play, I barely even use the oil drum. I do use the AK quite a bit, but usually as a spacing tool. I like sticking with melee combos mostly.

 

It just bewilders me how quickly I've gotten a grasp on Drake. When I was trying out Nariko, Good Cole, PaRappa, Radec, Sir Daniel, and Jak, it took me quite a bit to figure them out. Even during that brief time I tried out Raiden I just sucked at using him efficiently.

I'd honestly have to agree.  As an Uncharted fan, he was one of the first characters I tried when I got the game.  From the get-go I noticed how smoothly his attacks chained together and how you could easily transition from jumping, to sliding, to gunning, etc.  He just seemed easy and fun to play.  I picked him up as my main thinking everyone would be focused on Kratos and Raiden instead.

 

Boy was I wrong. XD

I find this a huge shame because I'm actually enjoying Drake.

It's bad enough that he receives a lot of hate for how people play him (from myself included), but for him to be so easy to pick up and play ruins the challenge I look for when I try to master a character.

I use drake and though he is not as complicated to use as Ratchet (my main other main), he doesn't have a lot of amazing moves like other characters like Kratos or Sly Cooper, he is quite linear and doesn't have a lot of air options
