Probably need to pick up Hades on sale....all I hear is good buzz, but the Let's Play I watched at release didn't grab me.
Hades' main point is the core gameplay loop of running into a room and doing your best to kill everything while not getting hit.
The game is good because the controls are good. I can't recall a single time I felt the game got in my way with poor controls, every misstep felt like either I made a mistake (running into an attack or not dodging an attack) or I didn't yet understand/know something (like a boss pattern).
The writing is solid and while it draws heavily upon Ancient Greek Mythology, it does so in a way that lets them put their own spin on characters while staying true to the myths and culture.
