Regarding Final Fantasy VIII, while most random enemies do scale 1-100, bosses do have both a minimum and a maximum level (The President on the train maxes out at level 23, for example).You can grind up to level 100 to roll over most bosses, but the standard mobs will still give you a "Fair" challenge.

In horizon it actually is said that the machines learn and adapt to survive pretty early on in the game. I can’t remember what NPC tells you. But it’s when you learn about what the machine that makes the machine is

Falcon, you lazy bastard, have you tried actually scripting your babbling before recording the sound? What is that 06:20 ? Also this video is about 30% padding. Which is actually better than usual. Sigh...

10 hidden mechanics 1 You're not as tough as you think. 2 You're not as smart as you think. 3 You're not as skilled as you think. 4 The machine can kick your ass, anytime, anywhere, since the PackMan coin-up era. 5 The machine must be limited, to give you a chance. 6 If it feels like a challenge, no one cares if it is or not. 7 The devs are holding your hand. 8 The devs want you to feel special. 9 The devs want your money again and again. 10 It is a game, you must have fun.

I freaking loved RE6. That game is one of the best Resident Evil franchise ever given us. People started with the wrong campaign then when they saw its action base then they think why RE game turn out to be a action game. If u play all the campaign then u know every campaign gameplay is very different. Every campaign given us RE1, RE4, RE5 n new Gears of War type campaign with the new character campaign. They make every type of campaign in that game with story that as a whole for all the campaign make amazing. When Leon n Chris draw the gun to each other. It was amazing to see how good that game really is. Loved the China scene when the bioNuke drop n everyone turn into zombie. U have to drive n walk out of that city. It was freaking amazing. That game is my favourite because of the story telling in with all the characters. They really did a lot of work for that game. Those new fanbase who only play one or two RE game. They r the vocal one. They bash this game for nothing. This r the same people who love RE5 game. If u enjoy RE5 then how the hell u hate in RE6. The story make absolute sense n the game follow after that game story. Also they given u every campaign. How they hate that game only shows they watch action base campaign n they hated it. Also they didn't understand why n how important this character is for us RE fanboys. They don't have any idea what is going on n they hated it. They wanted a solo new campaign with straight story telling without previous game tie in.

I was around 6-7 years old when I first played Pac-Man. And I found out rather quickly that the red, blue and pink ghosts weren't as random as I first thought. In fact, the only one that always ended up killing me, was the orange. 😂 Even though I easily manage to avoid the others, I couldn't figure it's patern out. 😌🤪

The scaling in FF8 isn't hidden (sorry, I mean !!!HIDDEN!!!)... it's even part of the SEED Test... How about a real hidden enemy scaling? "Breath of the Wild" for example, with its hidden point system.

The world tendency in demons souls was god level cool. Also it was actualy the whole server who affected it not just your player and it opened up closed off areas if it was black which led to hidden bosses.

I got the In Water ending from SH2 the first time I played it, and I thought it was depressing as hell. It made sense and all, but still... I was kinda shocked

You want to hear a CRAZY hidden mechanic not in a videogame? In my country last year of school students require to take a test. Nothing new but this test begins surveying you with a couple of open choice questions (one I can remember: What place you rather go on vacation: Mountains, Beach, Stay at Home, Jungle). Later I found out your responses actually affect the incoming test like for example it can give you a test with a lot more focus on history than mathematics or viceversa, it can choose certain topics and completely disregard others, focus heavily on biology or rather on civil maners, etc, etc. I still dont know how to feel about this personalization of testing.

The roll on donkey kong. They never tell you but in all the games there are some KONG letters that require that mechanic to catch. Quite smart actually even as a kid I understood what the game was trying to show me.

I'm pretty sure some npc in horizon explains the mechanic very early on, probably during the trials.

In the The Last of Us and Uncharted series' there's a mechanic to keep you moving and not just stay in one place for too long. The enemy AI uses grenades and/or attempts to surround you to encourage you to move around the map more during combat. It gets more extreme the higher the difficulty level you choose, requiring you to move more frequently.

In horizon zero dawn the entire story literally says that the enemies are evolving over time, just because they didn't spoon feed it to you doesn't mean the game didn't clearly fucking state it, in fact, its a pivotal plot point.

The enemies evolving as you destroy them repeatedly in HZD is actually part of the lore. Its just that we're so use to lore not directly impacting active and progressive game mechanics in any major way it just sort of slips the mind to even consider that the thing they mentioned in the story actively happens as you play the game lol.
