I personally think there is never going to be too many songs. Always good to have variety, and some.

I've had a problem with the song quantity for a while now. Not especially the shear number of files put into the game, but the fact that a lot of the newer files are so much worse then the old files.

(Exclude the historical songs for a moment) what song that's been addded recently feels like it flows to the heart of the song. Halogen is a good example of this. It's one of my favorite files because the stepchart flows so well with the music. It's difficulty is irrelevant.

I haven't played one song from any of the recent batches that equates even close to songs like Halogen, Szamar Madar, Turbulence or Nova Pulsar. (granted I haven't played them all)

Well then that depends on what you think is a "good" file, or more specifically, what you consider "good flow". Personally, I thought Nova Pulsar is a half abomination - flow included, but that's just me.

I'm kinda surprised that there's a person who calls them good files nowadays (maybe except for Szamar Madar).

curious about the reason.

Long songs are fun, endurance/accuracy is a skill too.

p.s. About 80% of the music in ffr isn't within my music tastes, but I am a sucker for rhythm games

Oh I totally agree.

I was mostly referring to the really easy songs. The long 9's and up are pretty fun and a nice challenge.

I think in a way a lot of the older historic FFR Files are better than a lot or at least some of the newer ones simply because they've been around longer so I'm more used to them. Though a lot of the new songs are still really good, there would be only a few I disagree with, and I can't even remember what files lol

I started playing ffr in 7th grade, and eventually the song Torinouta was uploaded. That got me into J-core, which led to happy hardcore, which led to gabber, which led to...

Anyway, I'm 18 going on 19, and now I mostly listen to electronic music over anything.

FFR got me into a lot of music overall....I still don't listen to everything on this site outside of FFR, but I definitely have a greater appreciation for more genres. If nothing else, FFR growing will continue to add good music (or rather....bizarre in some cases) to my collection or tastes overall. I think growth is good. If it's "too big", then perhaps competitive FFR isn't for you.

I think you're right; people too often inject nostalgia into what they would consider "objective" reasoning.

I also want to say that I can still dislike a song but enjoy its chart (and similarly, like a song, but don't care about its chart). So it's a two-pronged mechanism - it's hard for me to really dislike both aspects.
