Before I get attacked by git gud cultists fanboys I wanna say that I've played and beaten DS3 and I did not feel accomplished at all. It was not fun in fact it was a slog. The Dark Souls fanboys are the most toxic and cancerous and vocal minority that simp for this game like it was their girlfriend. News Flash most casuals like myself DO NOT ENJOY this type of game YET the industry keeps making these clones and I've really noticed it in the past year or two after I beat God of War 2018 and wanted to pick up another action game. So I had bought Nioh and had it on my backlog and the game was false advertising I start playing it and I go in thinking it's a hack and slash game it's a horrible souls game. There's nothing fun about a stifling stamina bar. It's literally artificial difficulty and speaking of difficulty. Difficult does not = good. Who is the industry making these games for? I'm sorry but I know there are more people that enjoy fast paced and FUN keyword FUN action games like DMC that I don't know um offer DIFFICULTY SETTINGS. Like having a difficulty option DOES NOT cheapen the game AT ALL!!!!!! But my biggest gripe is that there are TOO MANY of these dams souls games and not enough fun hack and slash games like DMC, God of War, Bayonetta, Darksiders, and Ninja Gaiden. In the past 5 years we only got 2 AAA hack n slash games: Nier Automata and DMC where as in the past 5 years there was the Surge, The Surge 2, Nioh, Nioh 2, Bloodborne, Mortal Shell, Code Vein, Immortal Unchained, Ashen, and Hellpoint. Again who are these games for? There making these games for a small minority of "hardcore" gamers at the expense of casual gamers like myself and my girlfriend who just wanna chill out and yes button mash and when did button mashing become a pejorative? I swear some of these devs are just so grimey and insulting. And it's not just the AAA market but the indie market too. Come on now 2 hack and slash games vs like 11 in the past 5 years?! If there were an equal amount of hack and slash games I really wouldn't be complaining. In the 6th and 7th gen we had so many of them and they just stopped making them. The only devs that still make em are platinum and ninja theory. I don't wanna keep playing old Xbox 360 games. How many times am I gonna replay DMC 4 or Darksiders 2? And I don't wanna keep playing Apex Legends and COD? I'm a consumer and yes I AM ENTITLED to my preferred style of action game. And there seems to be a glimmer of hope on the horizon with Babylon's Fall, Bayonetta 3, and Nier Replicant all made by Platinum Games. Who at this point is my favorite developer.
