Vincit qui se vincit
I want to add something here regarding why Elden ring is great to so many -
it is more accessible than previous souls games - I found this to be true for myself - I didn’t love the other ones, Elden ring you can run away and discover something else whenever things get hard. There was always something I’d never done - and the art is so incredible that I enjoyed exploring for new things
There’s nothing to do but fight complaint confuses me - I guess I never was the guy who did the mini games in GTA or other open worlds, my primary thing in most games that I enjoy is fighting. The other stuff feels like busy work most of the time for me - in fact this is why I couldn’t get back into Horizon after playing Elden ring.
I don’t get that complaint either. There is so much to explore and do that you don’t need pointless mini games to fill in the void. Not to mention that such mini games would make zero sense within this world. Platforming, combat, stealth, exploration, light puzzle elements. There is plenty for anyone to do in the game. If it isn’t their cup of tea, it isn’t their cup of tea. But to me so many of these complaints are less “It just isn’t for me” and more “I suck and I want to blame the game for it instead of myself”.
