This literally me!

Played demon souls, enjoy the combat hate everything else. Thought I'd try out Dark Souls since people say thats the best, bought it, exact same problems. Ugly art, no atmosphere detected, no interest the the narrative, no interest in what the game had to offer my character, no interest in replaying through a level after randomly getting killed by a boulder that came from nowhere.

I think I will give Bloodborne a try once its on a budget, I've already seen that the world has a more tangible haunted atmosphere and more of a concrete artstyle properly realised by the PS4 architecture versus the other games that looked like medevil mud in my eyes.


I'm amazed that so many seem to share my sentiments yet people are writing of my opinions like I'm trolling. They're valid opinions.

Yeah, i've never been able to get into any of them either. Mainly because i don't have enough patience to play them.



I suspect many Souls fans are older gamers who remember how hard old games were: That you were never really sure if you'd ever be able to reach the end at all. And the thrills of getting one step further out of pure skill that you attained from repetition and practice.
Not saying "old games were better!"; in fact I think by and large games have generally become better.

But the Souls games rekindle this kind of magic that got lost in this age of focus testing.

What challenge level are you playing at on Witcher 3?

Death March. I'm going for the Platinum. It's not the difficulty of Bloodborne that puts me off though. I like that it's difficult. I'm a trophy hunter and I always play games on the hardest level. It's that it feels like the devs blast you back so far after a death just to add to gameplay length. That's the frustration.


No, actually there are a crap load of shortcuts and check points that let you get back to where you were.  If you actually played it a decent amount you would have found this out



I am Torgo, I take care of the place while the master is away.

"Hes the clown that makes the dark side fun.. Torgo!"

Ha.. i won my bet, but i wasnt around to gloat because im on a better forum!  See ya guys on Viz

yea the chalice dungoens sux and DS2 is just garbage. The only good game was and is DkS1. Best music, best levels, cool bosses and balanced gameplay.
Bloodporne is just good graphiks with fraction of the content that DkS1 had.

I can only say shame on you. You logic also boggles the mind.

Oh let's try demon souls. Eh. Don't like it. No atmosphere crappy graphics and gameplay.

Oh dark souls. I hated the previous game but let's give them a chance. Eh. Don't like it. No atmosphere, crappy gameplay and graphics.

(I'm starting to see a pattern here.)

Oh dark souls 2. The sequel to a game I hate and a dev that creates all of its games pretty crappy. Let's get it. Eh don't like it. No atmosphere, crappy gameplay and graphics.

Omg omg from software are creating a spiritual successor to the souls games. Let's check out some gameplay. Ah it looks just like the previous games. Let's get it. Eh no atmosphere, crappy gameplay and graphics.


(Honestly I really don't get your logic. You either like to torture yourself or you have a very. Short memory.)

I only like the first souls game. Aint tried bloodborne



Nobody's perfect. I aint nobody!!!

Killzone 2. its not a fps. it a FIRST PERSON WAR SIMULATOR!!!! ..The true PLAYSTATION 3 launch date and market dominations is SEP 1st

King's Field is awesome, but you will probably hate that as well.

Just because you don't like a previous game in a series doesn't mean the same will hold true for the latest iteration. In terms of Devil May Cry it goes like this: 

loved 1

hated 2

loved 3

liked 4

hated the reboot

If I'd have him m judged the others by part 2 I'd have missed out on some good games. I'll probably revisit Bloodborne. But I think it falls well below the review scores.

Having tried and not liking the beggining of demon soul I can understand your opinion, but why create a thread to shit over the game?

Isn't a bad review pretty much an entire article made to crap all over a game? Nothing wrong with that. Someone doesn't like something they can voice their opinion.


And although discussion and opinion is wellcome here, this kind of thread with the purpouse of bashing a game is not very liked by people in vgc. For the obvious reason you'll see on the thread. No common ground, fans defending to death, some people trolling and no good being resulted from it.

You do know you can speed run to the boss right? kill it and you will open a new checkpoint. It's even more central and from there, you can open several short-cut gates and all you're problems are over. you don't need to kill anyone to progress, you can skip it unless if you wanna level up which is a good idea.
The game is a bit of a drag in the beginning, but as soon as you beat the first 2-3 bosses the game will turn into a blast. I play Witcher 3 at the hardest level, and the frustration was even more real then bloodborne so i doubt it that you did, but i give you the benefit of doubt
