      Oddworld was also a puzzle type of game with a certain rhythm to it. And its definitely a far cry different than any souls game, so I really do not get the point here.

      @ZeeHero you ever went back and played smb or smb3? I have with smb3. And thank fuck I grew up with them cuz its controls feel very unintuitive to modern sensibilities, took me a while to dust off the skills. It's still got a wonderful feeling of going on a journey and adventure, mind, but that's besides the point. We're used to platforming where the skill comes from inputting commands quickly and well timed with proper response, thinking of celeste and ori primarily. Back then you had to think out and feel your commands and use finesse rather than raw reflexes. Different skills, comparable difficulty.

      i gave the game a few hundred hours... Didnt like it. I wanted to like it but the way the story is told... i couldn't finish it. Fromsoft games are just not for me. the fact that it sold all these millions of copys dont mean a thing to me. Call of duty sells billions of copys and i never liked it.

    My ten year old son has recently started playing it after watching me and deciding it's the coolest looking thing he's ever seen. It took him a while to get a grip with the From way, but watching it click for him and see him start to GIT GUD was a super proud parenting moment.
    The first major wall he hit was (as I'm sure it was for many) against Margit. Did he trash the game? Blame his many, many deaths on the controls or the design philosophy? No. He immediately started watching other videos on how to overcome this monster. He researched, he trained, he died again and again. And then, he did it. He felled him. I was in the kitchen making coffee and I heard the unmistakable sound of triumph. He fucked Margit up and he felt good about it. Now, he's in Haligtree, fast approaching Malenia.
    This kid is 10 and was able to look past his failures and learn from his mistakes and appreciate the masterpiece that it is.
    My point is... I'm not even sure. I just wanted to voice my proudness. And possibly implicate that my son is more man than some of these reviewers.

      @Captain Chainsaw then just enjoy it. People will disagree with you (myself included) but if you enjoy the game then it's a good game for you. Nobody knows which games shake up the industry until a decade after so just play what you like and don't worry about its legacy

      Some people are really hung up on resolution. Souls games (other than Sekiro) aren't the pinnacle of hi res textures when zoomed in. I'd argue that that's a very intentional artistic choice like soft focus in photography designed to keep you focused on the relevant details

    Wow. Quantum's take was the biggest case of sour grapes I've ever seen.
    First off, his take made my head hurt more and more the longer he talked. The only good thing I can say about it is that, when he got to the 'fair use' part, I laughed at the same moment you did. i haven't had something make me burst out laughing like that in quite a while, so that was the teeny tiny little half a raindrop of gold in this cow-pie of a review.
    Personally, I'm not into the Souls games. I recognize that they're not my type of game. I'm a casual gamer who mainly focuses on shit like Pokemon or Stardew Valley. The hardest I've ever worked in a video game was fully completing the Spyro Reignited Trilogy (All the achievements, collected every collectable, just... did everything in all three games). I've never been interested in the Souls games because I'm not really into what I call 'meat-grinder games'. I love learning about all of the lore behind them, though, and I know a lot of people who enjoy the games. However, while it may not be my thing, I'm not two years old. I recognize that I don't have the skillset to go very far in this game, and I'm not going to just rag on the people who do have those skills and call them weird... what, vampire mutants, or something? "Oh, the game was made to be hard." YES! That's the point of the franchise! You braindead labradoodle! Not everything has to cater to you, and not everything has to be made with everyone involved! Just admit that you didn't make it past the first random monster you ran into and move on. Stop crying worse than my 1-year-old niece.
    Actually, him ragging on the game kinda makes me want to go out and buy the game. I don't even care if I ever play it, but I'd be giving the developers more money to make cool stuff like this. Also, one last point: The game looks beautiful. If that's dog shit, someone needs to check his dog, because it's shitting out gold bricks.

      @Ol' Extra Regular Bass Actually haven't played much, but the game so far is gorgeous! Once getting past the tutorial, I actually spent ten minutes just taking in the scenery. This game is total eye-candy!
      As far as gameplay... I've actually only died so far because I was dumb. lolz. I died three times to the tutorial boss. Once because I forgot to block, the second because I forgot to dodge, and the third time because I forgot I could heal. The fourth time, I didn't even get hit, and beat him. It was actually really fun!
      I then snuck past the guy on the horse, killed some foot-soldiers for runes, and then went into a dark cave and got ambushed and killed by wolves. lolz. That was my bad, too. Should have had a torch. Haven't gotten mad at any of my deaths yet, because I know that I was being dumb at the time.
      The game's beautiful, and I'm actually having a lot of fun with it so far! It gives me a thrill when I beat an enemy in this. It feels good.

      Years ago I bought DS1 on sale without knowing anything about it. Got my ass handed to me in the tutorial. Didn't touch the game for months, kinda building courage to try it again. It's now one of my favorite series.
      Yeah it's hard but finally being able to overcome the challenge this games present is one of the best and greatest feelings I got from gaming.

    My gf played like 30-40 hours of Dark Souls 1, found it cool but got stuck at 4 kings and kinda abandonned.
    When Elden Ring came out, I bought it, and she tried it out. 10 - 20 hours, she beat Godrick on her first try. Right now she's 90 - 95 hours in, still having a blast and absolutely destroying some really hard bosses, while she really wasn't that good at Dark Souls. She got gud at Elden Ring, and that guy should too before telling stupid things.

    “A game that’s not made for everyone isn’t a game that should be made”
    The paradox of this statement is that if you dumbed down Elden Ring to be for babies, then you’d turn away all the fans that love the challenge, ergo, it’s not for them anymore. There is literally no way to achieve this standard for anything ever, game or otherwise.
    But Quantum abuses DMCA to silence criticism so fuck whatever he has to say anyway.

      For the case of dumbing down elden ring to be made for babies, yes you can achieve this and satisfy everyone, all you have to do is add difficulty options, this goes for a lot of shit this game is absent of just to suit "hardcore players" instead of offering gamer friendly options, like points of interest or even a fucking quest log.

      @TDE 44 Oh sure, and he knows that. That’s him for you.
      You know that Sequelitis video (I think) where he applauded Mega Man X for teaching players through gameplay instead of text instruction? That’s his personality type. Don’t say, game, just naturally guide. And I get that.
      Hence why he liked Elden Ring. ER (problematic initials, those) is super not-hand-hold-y, for a modern game. And unlike the old days of gaming, there’s no instruction manual.
      Me, on the other hand, I always actually read (past tense) game manuals when those were still things.

    I love how people think adding an easy mode to games takes 5 minutes when in reality adding new difficulties can be a nightmare since every Enemy and boss needs their stats and animations edited or you need to redesign every level
    And the same people that demand these options always complain “The game makes me feel bad cause I have to play easy mode”

    • SD
      SD 23 일 전

      As a former coder, they would need to include a factor to nerf or buff every stat for every enemy depending on the difficulty level chosen.
      This is not including AI changes, which are probably considerably more work and probably cause all levels of disagreement when they decide which tweaks are for "easy" vs "hard"

    I struggled with Elden Ring for maybe the first few days. But I was trying to learn the controls and interface. I did alot of research. I actually played every starter class because the tutorial area was kinda fun. It really helped me get skilled at the movement and combat. I rarely die. Because I don't attempt stupid stuff. This game is amazing in that it really follows the Art of War. Win first then go to battle.

    This was my first from software game, and the first game I’ve played on a controller. I had so much fun, learning how to play while exploring the phenomenal world they’ve created, and got better and better. When I first got in I was getting wiped by one single soldier near stormgate. On my second play-through I was downing bosses on my first or second try and I’m still having fun trying different builds and strategies… These people are stubborn and delusional.

    Here's my hot take.
    Elden Ring is the BEST Action RPG to be made in the last decade or more. No RPG since Skyrim has instilled me with such a feeling of wonder and amazement as Elden Ring did. The open world is beautifully detailed and full of content and places to explore. And Elden Ring is absolutely GORGEOUS, the single most visually beautiful game I have ever played.
    If Elden Ring was half as good as it is, it would STILLA be an EASY 9 out of 10.
    These garbage takes all obviously come from people who think Ubisoft games are the most unique open world experiences in gaming.

    Elden Ring is the first souls-type game I’ve ever played. At first I was expecting to get wrecked and assumed I’d probably give up after realising I wouldn’t be good enough but that really wasn’t the case. This game is accessible to ALL players. You just have to learn how the game works. Practice. Get good. And finally, reap the rewards of your efforts. I’ve now finished Ranni’s questline and am excited to continue onwards. Probably my favourite game I’ve played in a long-ass time. Amazing game. The feeling you get after beating a boss who has defeated you numerous times is so satisfying

      A game that would catter to everyone would take atleast 25 years to make. A game which had every genre in it. Cutting edge graphics. Perfect 9000 fps. But it would be atleast 1TB and people would still complain because that's too much. And i bet ppl who think like quantum would say "why make a game so big, there wasn't a need to make it so big" so at the end of the day. IT'S IMPOSSIBLE TO MAKE A VIDEO GAME OR PRODUCT THAT APPEALS TO EVERYONE, that's not how things work.

I've showed at least 5 people this week the tree spirit fight in Stormveil. People get so excited finding a secret/optional paths. I've learnt the route so well I stop beside the items now so they don't miss them. Now I don't get crap for killing the mini-boss, like 4000 runes? Less then helping someone kill Godrick, but it's a extra heal for a noob, so it's worth.

    Elden Ring is my first FromSoftware game. I had no first person experience with this game but I’ve seen enough videos of their previous games to understand what I was getting into. There were only 4-5 enemies that I thought were complete garbage to fight, and half of them have become manageable at this point. This 150 hour game in a genre(?) that I have no experience with became deeply investing in my first 4 hours and I’ve had a blast since.

    I died lots of times in DS2 to that guy with the big blue sword because I wanted his sword more than I wanted him to continue living. But it was on me for aggroing a nonhostile NPC with a giant fuck-off sword. Eventually I decided to level up a bit more before trying to claim his sword. I've noticed a lot of non hostile NPCs that don't sell you stuff are actually pretty strong in these games. That's a lesson I learned

      ​@MR II That's exactly my point. Gmod is the "game for everyone" but it's not that in the rite of its developer or core mechanics.
      My point is you shouldn't set out with the goal to please everyone, because you can't force that. It can happen, but it has to happen organically.
      EDIT: basically, I'm saying unless you strike the jackpot with community engagement, you're not going to make a "game for everyone". You should make what you want, and if you do that well enough, well "if you build it, they will come" - Having the upfront goal of your game being "for everyone" is going to fail.

    • MR II

      @Triangle Moebius dude, gmod is literally a mod for the half life engine. it was made to cater to a specific niche of players, i.e. people who like to f*ck around. it's a playground for people who want to get creative it's not exactly made to cater for everyone. you can say the same for Roblox, but again, any game that has a platform for creativity isn't catering to everyone. people make mods or games for specific genres but none of them appeal to everyone by themselves.

    • Triangle Moebius
      Triangle Moebius 5 개월 전

      Ironically, "appealing to no one" can be done well. I like to think Gmod has no appeal to anyone really on its own merit (remember: vanilla gmod is three open maps, a handful of NPC's, HL2 guns and two tools) but people MADE it appeal to them, both through gmod being totally moldable, use of source engine games, and a close relationship between Gary and the community.
      The issue is that's not something you can inorganically create. Gmod started as a "fuck around" project by Gary, and then people came naturally. It's not something you can DEMAND, but something that must HAPPEN.

    When I see someone reacting with incoherent frustration to a game that is just too hard for them I can sympathize. I did the exact same thing when I first played Elden Ring. No game has made me angrier. I stuck with it and got good... ok not good but good enough that I can't remember what was so hard about it or what my problem was. It was worth it. Get good. Just stop complaining and get good.
    How do you get good? Just keep playing and it happens. You don't need guides or dedicated practice. It just happens on its own from playing more.

    Speaking from personal experience Act Man, Elden Ring is in fact the easiest of the Souls mainly because when you die (quite often than not) you only temporarily lose all your runes but unlike demon and dark souls your health bar isn’t halved and no way to return it to full strength. All you have to do is make it back to where you died without dying a second time and you can reclaim your hard earned currency. That’s why it’s now on my top ten RPGs ever. Tough as nails but far more forgiving. Easy mode would be a bad idea because it would gimp the already masterpiece game.

    Actually his point of “fromsoft needs learn to welcome players” is exactly what has transpired since dark souls 3. OG DS, DS 1 & 2 were absolutely dogshit to me (mostly the controls), but dark souls 3 immediately clicked with me and I’ve been a fan of the franchise since. Elden Ring made it more so since it was such an accessible installment to the genre.

But when Quantum said “You can’t play the game without a million times first”… I am sitting now with over 250 hrs into elden ring and it was very hard but it was so enjoyable when you beat a difficult boss. And then he also “The controls are shitty.” I skipped the cave of knowledge bc my game glitched and it didn’t show me the usual “The cave knowledge lies below” and I learned the controls within maybe 10-20 mins…

He never played a From Software game before, now He doesn't want to play anything else and in the beginning he didn't want to play it at all because of the difficulty but i told him don't worry i got your back we're going to get you gud.
