Dunno. Never played any game that works like that. Probably because I stay the hell away from games that aren't so much games as scams and money pits disguised as games.
"But for just $39.99 you can buy 7000 fake in-game currency to level up and buy gear in our cash shop! Sure, you can earn that in game but it's a drip feed that'll take you months. You know you wanna buy it, sucker!"
--- modern "gaming" in a nutshell
Or you're talking about that other game. You know, that one that has niche appeal but "everybody" talks about like it's the best thing since sliced bread.
Is it like chess?
I've heard that they were good games. Unfortunately I don't have a suitable PC at the moment.
This thread specifically refers to Soulsborne games. Demon Souls, Dark Souls 1 2 and 3, Bloodborne, Sekiro, and Elden Ring
The best kind of games, IMO. Not for the feint of heart or those who are quick to anger
I like Elden Ring as you can mod it to make it easier
I can't be bothered dying 30 times to rote learn a predictable pattern and master very precise timing to defeat some boss according to a pattern you recognised after 2-3 fights.
5 times I can live with, but much beyond that just gets boring. You still get satisfaction without the time consuming annoyance and need to invest inordinate amounts of time to finish the game.
I find it pretty wanky to make games as inaccessible as possible to casual gamers, a bit like purposely writing a book in impenetrable prose.
Death is the greatest teacher in those games.
For anyone who enjoys frequent, epic boss fights… the Souls games are the ideal 3D Metroidvania experience.
Dark Souls opening cinematic
Dark Souls takes you into a dreamlike nightmarish purgatory realm, where everyone in it no matter how strong they are- man or god- will eventually lose their mind and “go hollow”. Your quest is simple… retain your sanity long enough to conquer the monsters around you and spread fire to a world being consumed by darkness… as everyone around you meets tragic ends.
Dark Souls 3 Main Theme
As for Elden Ring, 10/10 in every regard… Miyazaki+ George RR Martin, it’s like Dark Souls combined with Legend of Zelda:

I love the way you described these!
Did you ever have a chance to try Bloodborne?
These days I’m almost exclusively on Xbox when gaming, so I have yet to play Bloodborne and Demon Souls. Though I am about to get started on Sekiro.
Ahh I used to play the hell out of Bloodborne back in the day. For some reason my PS5 thinks I don’t own it. All my other games transferred though. I guess I’ll have to start a new game from scratch lol
Ahh it happens. I have lost a few games to “corruption files” through the years.Oof... That sucks man, I'm sorry
