why not a Prince of Persia sands of time style prince of Persia? Why does it have to be more of the same shit that everyone hates now?

Souls-like Rogue-like, stealth action adventure, FPS, battle royale and that's it.

There's nothing being made outside of those formulas anymore.

Everyone doesn't hate it, and lots of games are constantly being made without roguelike elements.

and lots of games are constantly being made without roguelike elements.

Roguelike wasn't the only thing I brought up or even the main point of what I was saying.

I'm sorry you hate good games.

I mean I suppose there are quite a few of those genres being made, but I for one certainly don't hate it lol. Dead cells is one of my favorite games ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Plus this indie studio working on a prince of Persia game does not stop another studio from also working on a prince of Persia game. I mean we just got a metroidvania game in the series

There's plenty of other stuff being made, and I'm pretty sure you either know that and just wanted to complain or somehow didn't know, in which case it's your own fault for not even trying to find everything else. There are always trending genres, that's always been and will always be a thing. You don't need to be a dick just because you aren't a fan of the currently trending ones. You have literally all games ever made to play, nothing is forcing you to play only the most recent and popular ones. And a couple of years from now some other genre will be trending, maybe even ones you like. But as said, there's plenty of good games being released in all genres and formulas, just look for what you like and you'll find it, it's really not hard.

If everyone hated it it wouldn't sell. There's plenty of other things being made as well, I haven't played Sands of Time but I would guess the God of War reboot is a similar genre.

Why not a Prince of Persia 1989 rogue? It was literally a dungeon crawler...

I know I don't hate it; I immediately imagined something that is more like Hades with a decent story and art, but even if you do find it unpalatable, with the breadth of indie games out there covering all genres (including brand new ones), there's something for everyone—even the ol' gaming curmudgeon. 😉
