The Game Corner's still there, though, just with a different minigame like Bolt Strike said, so I don't really think the Frontier can be said to be compensating for it. (especially considering the difference in complexity between the two) And there's also the Athlon in HGSS, a feature completely new and not compensating for any other removals.
i suppose i wasn't clear enough when i said "traditional", but i did strongly imply "game corner with the slot machines" up to that point, which never made a return, even in these games. fair point with the athlon (which i could've sworn i mentioned but i suppose i didn't).hgss removed the traditional game corner,
like what, exactly, from a noticeable gameplay standpoint? i can give oras credit for adding soaring and new megas that were just about the biggest additions that directly impacted gameplay. the delta episode can be considered new content sure, quality aside (i'm not the biggest fan of the delta episode personally; it's way too short of a post-game story imo and zinnia isn't even rematchable iirc which is a rather large let down to me). the mirage spots, for all intents and purposes, serve a similar, if not the same exact purpose as the pokemon hideaways in bdsp so if we're counting that as a new feature, then the pokemon hideaways should be as well, since they're pretty much only there for one specific purpose (to catch specific pokemon, namely legendaries in the case of specific mirage areas in oras as well as legendary pokemon hideaways in bdsp). perhaps refresh my mind a bit?Again, ORAS actually added significant new features.
i'm not saying, or arguing for that matter (and i'd like to be clear on this), that bdsp is a perfect game because it adds a thousand new things. it doesn't. what i'm saying is that it doesn't do anything differently or new that other remake we've played in the past hasn't already done (for the most part). if you want to argue that makes bdsp unimpressive, sure. but to single it out as if it's the only game that does this is rather disingenuous at best. it's a remake and that means, largely, that it's going to be reflective of the base game with QoL changes. whether one feels those changes are significant enough is certainly a debate to have, however (not one i'm willing to take part in, personally).
