it's the same thing that more than 500 animes... they just take the manga and turned into a series, not into an anime. And a lot of that animes are even better than Squid game

I think what he means is that, there are a lot of animes that are super good in the same style. if people was not so judgmental about animes a lot of them would also become popular. Squid Game is good, but comparing with some animes is average. The show runners did a good adaptation to a series tho.

+1 i actually watched lot of anime that's why i didn't find squid game all that interesting or dark it's overrated imo but it's not bad either there are way better anime but people are so judgmental xD they think it's just boobies and fanservice in anime

nothing, I just said that the only reason that makes it famous... all the others mangas about the same tematic became animes, a lot even better than squid game, but the people dont want to watch animes. So yes, squid game is overrated because isn't nothing new or diferent, like people are talking, just the firt that became an series

It would be boring if it was the way you put it :P Its fun because of the dozens of little things behind it like freedom of choice, brutality, ruthlessness, mysteriousness etc. etc. and after all it is only an argument.
2021-10-14 01:16
Not so boring that you didn't watch it in it's entirety though.
2021-10-14 09:15
It's boring for some reason in your mind. Open up your view instead of repeating "boring" like a child

Wait for real season 2? It should have ended. The show was great (because original) but the ending is a forced milk of the show. He should have went to his daughter

The ending was kinda weird and boring yeah, with that old man talking in the bed, already weird, and also that cop who died without doing anything was kinda weird, they should've intensify it a bit more. But they still can to be honest. In season 2 it could turn out that that cop actually survived and he makes a huge drama etc :D
2021-10-13 23:06
They should have definitely ended the story on season 1, and to milk it make a second season about the past, how the game was created, something like that. Koreans, call me for more tips, it will not be cheap though
2021-10-14 01:58

but who cares if they make season 2, if its bad just dont watch. Its hard to find original ideas so milking is expected. Also expect US adaption for squid games

I think people are just happy to watch something that doesn't try to shove a politicial ideology down your throat so even 6/10 series get hyped up like they are 10/10 also it had many video game references, and references from games they played in their childhood, so it was pretty original for being a death game theme
2021-10-14 01:20
Its a 7/10 show but it has great potential. Tbh, for me this show have limitless potential. There was a line when one of VIP's said "Korea had best games so far" which could mean there are games in other parts of the world or Netflix could do like spinoffs of this with better cast etc. its overhyped, thats for sure.

I enjoyed watching it. the visual style and the games was fun. nothing special and nothing new though. I have forseen basically every major plot point (ending, winner, identity of the black mask guy, reason/backgournd for the game). I would rate it 3/5 stars

+1 I watched one episode and couldnt believe how predictable this show is. Gonna give another go but so far it feels weak. Battle Royale like gameshow for rich people, give me a fucking break. Everything was fine until they started killing people
2021-10-14 09:13
I quite enjoyed watching it, however it was very predictable, litterally guessed serval plots episodes before they even happened, like, who would stand off in the final (and Gi-Hun would win), basically every single winner of the marble game, who the front man was, that Mi-Nyeo would eventually kill off Deok-Su. There're so many more examples. Despite all that I actually quite enjoyed the show.

Alice in Borderland did it first and is a way better show imo!

2021-10-14 10:14
I liked it, though I watched it before I heard the hype so I didnt have high expectations as I didnt know what it was... I was pleasantly surprised. I think that's the key, originally no one had high expectations and now people do.

You have to be a teenager to bring up age context into this. The comprasion is pretty spot on. Csgo is a game where you kill 5 guys every 2 minutes. The graphics are realistic. So you should also dislike csgo

2021-10-14 20:05
I don't think it's valid to compare fiction to a game, different rules apply for both. You're killing digital bits and pieces in CS:GO, but the squid series is about gore and killing people, given the context it's not cool.
