Dead by Daylight, Stranger Things, Hellraiser, Behaviour Interactive, Pinhead, Demogorgon Would Spring Trap be good for the DBD community? (Part 1)
Multiple times app is a dog with a bone who wont sleep until hes, buried, relentlessly determined and strong servant. Cunning and creative tap is everything that the new licensed speculators think they are tap is a doberman and a deerstalker cap. These people are more akin to chow chows and a loose tinfoil sombrero communitys new bone is spring trap. Low bunny hailing from the infamous five nights at freddys franchise that everyone loves to hate for the past year and a half this rotting rabbit has been a divisive figure in the community for many reasons, from the young fan base of his original game. To the controversial actions of his creator, theres a lot of valid reasons to think springtrap might be bad for dead by daylight. However, i think springtrap would actually be good for the game in a few ways before we get into that. Let me clarify a few first. I want to clarify that i believe licenses as a whole have become bad for the game. Im not going to explain this very deeply or elaborate on this here, but the reason i think that way is this: the majority of the problematic maps in the game are licensed. Maps and licensed killer designs have started to stagnate ever since the stranger things chapter. If you want me to explain my thoughts on this more leave a comment, and i may make a future video on this topic. Secondly, i am not going to be theorizing or speculating on what springtrap will do or really anything related to the game in this lore instead ill be looking at in real life and personal reasons that, if enough chapter would be good for dead by daylight in its Community, third and final clarification is that im, not a fan of fanboy ive, only ever played the first two five nights at freddy games and i didnt even bother beating them.
F1. Alright, now that expectations have been managed and legal disclaimers have been disclaimed, lets dive head. First into the civil war start off were going to take a brief overhead look at the license. Lineup of debt by daylight promise im going somewhere with this, so just bear with me. Majority of dead by daylights. Theatrical franchise licenses are from older, franchises that all started and hit their peak popularity before the 2000s began, but now were going to use the year 2000s to cut off for recent titles. The recent franchises that have licenses on dpd are stranger things, which was originally released in july 2016, saw which was released in october of 2004 and scream, which has being counted since scream 2, and the scary movie franchise were both released in the year 2000.. I know many franchises have had remakes on the recent years and or later installments. However, these remakes and later installments were almost all met with mixed feedback at best and often fell short of the original licenses, so im not going to count them when it comes to game based franchises. Both silent hill and recent evil hit their peak, relevancy and critical acclaim in the early 2000s, allowing them to join our list of recent franchises move the cut off to 2010.. Suddenly our list gets a lot smaller, leaving only stranger things and debatably resident evil. Silent hill saw and scream all get caught here, as works all works released in 2008 2012 time frame from these franchises consistently score.
The lowest rankings you know online tier lists and their rapidly dwindling monetary returns indicates that overall people werent very pleased with their later works. This leaves stranger things and resident evil. As our last two resident evils, inclusion could be debated as seven and eight dont feature. Any the licensed characters predominantly and resident. Evil, 5 and 6 are considered by fans to be as several die, hard dressed and evil fans put. It while i was trying to learn as much as i could about the games before the resident evil chapter was released, just not worth it or an embarrassment to the franchise as a whole or five, and six are two of the top selling games. So im still going to include resident evil here. I am also aware that there is an evil dead show that was released in 2015. However, id argue ash isnt, primarily known from that show anders, is instead known for giving many young women dendrophobia in the 1980s. This leaves us with stranger things and resident evil, as our only recent licenses, except one, which, up until now, ive completely omitted. If i were to ask you who new players gravitate to the most three names would most likely come to mind: white fairfield, meg, thomas and william bill overback purposely left out everyones favorite m16 wielding grandpa. I think bill is the greatest example of why springtrap would be good for the dead by daylight community to younger players below the age of 20.
Bill is most likely the most recognizable survivor. Many of these players bills. Inclusion is a bit of safety. The strange and uncertain nightmare that theyve now found themselves in being able to play a character that these young players already know and recognize and give a certain confidence to explore and play the game more. Someone who didnt join the internet or gaming culture until the mid 2010s. I was a bit anxious when i first started playing dvd played on an xbox and admittedly i was anxious to play survivor. Despite watching many videos and tutorials, i always found myself sitting in a killer queue whenever i thought about playing survivor that changed when bill was finally added to the console versions of the game being able to play as a familiar face gave me the final push to Actually start playing survivor, unlike all the other licensed characters which at best were names id only heard in passing and at worst, i assumed were original characters. Sorry bubba. This was a character. I already knew im having friends over to my house and playing left 4 dead. 1 split screen on a barely functioning xbox 360, the memories of the playing the game. With my dad, i already had a lot of good times with this character. Those good memories provided a safety net of sorts. Once bill was added. I solely played survivor for the next few months, as i was excited to possibly make new memories with a character.
His original game was long dead, im willing to bet im, not the only one thats. Why so many newer and inexperienced players flocked bill youve seen any of my other content im a verified bill main to this day, even after almost 900 hours of play, time stretched across several years and two different platforms. Its that confidence boost is still there might not be as strong, but its still there thats the thing as the real world gets more digital. These digital characters become more real. People are spending more time than ever playing video games and making digital memories. With friends of the characters and the games, theyre playing, i cant be certain, but id be willing to say that the emotional connections formed by these newer generations around the characters is most likely stronger than those formed by people in 1980s. Around characters movies in this newest online generation, weve only joined the internet in five to six past years. Naf is to them what call of duty, zombies and left for dead are to my online generation or what president evil and silent hill were to the previous online generation. Having springtrap in the game would give this new generation a recognizable and familiar killer for all things. Demogorgon is iconic and scary arent, really one of them. Stranger things wasnt made by demogorgon like how halloween or nightmare on elm street were made by michael myers of freddy krueger. Stranger things was made by the protagonists like nancy and steve.
Meanwhile, demo, despite being the best boy, was nothing more than a temporary obstacle for the protagonist to overcome bring trap, however, is arguably the ultimate villain of the fanaf storyline. Anyone familiar with vanessas story will know and fear his name bring traps, familiarity, history and more frightening appearance would provide new players hesitant to pick up killer as starting point to allow them to dive into the killer side of the game and get over that initial anxiety. I have more to say on the subject. However: ive cut this script here. If youd like a part, two, let me know liking, sharing, commenting and subscribing are all massive ways.
