It's not like it's in my top reasons that DD is bad (saying it's "the dumbest shit" is obviously hyperbole). However, I do feel that Super Nasu is a clear indication that the DD devs had no appreciation for the subtleties of YN, and it's the first thing after the prologue that let me know that. So I do kinda resent it.>>2023>It being deliberaty dull probably isn't a design decision though, you are probably embracing your head canon a bit too much here. It's just a little minigame. Do mind the game was made in 2004.
I'm inclined to disagree and say that it's too little a thing with too much work put in for it not to have been included for a decent purpose. At the same time, I know you're probably right. We all give Kikiyama way too much credit. But because the original YN means so much to me, and because that meaning is so specific, I knew I was gonna have these kinds of nitpicks regardless of the quality of the end product. I was really dreading this release.
