I haven't played it, but even as a RPG fan it's doesn't seem all that good to me.
Anyway I doubt it could be kver Dark Souls/Bloodborne in this half decade.


Your statement is so contradictory...

1. You're an RPG fan yet you refuse to play this RPG

2. You haven't played it yet you could judge that the game isn't good already.

So if you're an RPG fan, you should try this first before passing judgment, correct?

Your statement is also quite contradictory, unless you've played every RPG released in the past decade, which I'm sure you haven't.
Because like you said, you can't pass judgement on those games unless you try them for yourself. And yet you seem to do just that.

I think the most interesting piece of information when making a statement like that would be which rpgs you've played in the past decade, so we know which games you're comparing it to, and so we can have a better understanding of your personal taste in gaming.



Around the Network

OP, you give the game some mighty praise, but then compare the combat to Batman, which is clearly an action-adventure title and not an RPG. As far as RPGS go, I can't see this topping 2012's Xenoblade but the hype you and others are giving it certainly make me want to try it.



It's really strange how much some people like different games that I just can't get into

Some people here listing Xenoblade as one of the best RPGs of all time, yet I might not proceed past the 6 hour mark. It just seems to be a series of fetch quests with repetitive combat

As for the Witcher itself, I never finished 2. I just found the combat so frustrating. The game somehow expects you to prepare potions before battle, knowing of course exactly when you're going to start fighting? I just found myself spending my entire time rolling around in circles

But I think I just don't hugely like these open world RPGs. Skyrim didn't wow me, DA I got tedious. I tend to prefer more linear experiences. My top RPGs would probably be Persona 4 Golden, FFX and FF IX



I respect your opinion and I love the witcher 3, but fallout 3 is better and fallout 4 will be better :p



For reasons that puzzle even me I couldn't get into it... I think I have about 4 hours played and never returned. Compare that to similar games like Skyrim and Fallout 3 where I just couldn't stop playing... Maybe those two burnt me out on this sort of thing?

Donno, I've been trying to talk myself into playing it again for a long time now.

Sorry, but replaying the exact same area with the exact same enemies with the exact same encounter with the exact same content more than 10x in a row as a gameplay mechanic....

That's what makes it the worst game I've ever played. I like hard games myself, and I always play every game at max difficulty, but the Souls series is carved on repetition. That just doesn't make any bit of sense to me.


I can tell that you didn't really know what you were doing if you ever actually played Demon's Souls. 

Oh, so you're the exceptional player who didn't have to replay the same area over and over again? Please tell all of us how you achieved such a feat.

You shouldn't have been going into an area repeatly unless you were there for something specifically and you didn't have to fight the majority of creatures in a area unless you wanted to. The game is not repetitive unless you're dying repeatily because of the same creatures/mistakes over and over again. 

Alot of people who try to play the game offline only or "these days" never experienced the full game. Nothing can compare to playing the game while being invaded constantly by other players and helping fellow gamers through their game world. There's nothing repetitive about Demon's Souls. Every time you would go somewhere it was geniunely different because of other players. Alot of people kept playing the game long after they beaten it many times.

If you don't like the game, fine, that's your preference but it is one of the best games out there. Playing the game just a little bit won't give you any insight into the game. It's just like when a virgin loses their cherry but that person doesn't get the hype about sex til they've been at for a while.

Oh so you've gone through the entire game without replaying any sections whatsoever? Really?

You must be god himself. Sorry but I guess my mere mortal hands can't relate to your amazing ability. Offline or online, players die because the game is built that way. And when players die, we replay the whole section from the beginning.

If you never experienced that, congratulations. You might be the only man on Earth who hasn't replayed a section of the Souls series.

Edit: I appreciate the fact that some people enjoy repetition so they love the Souls series. That's fine. However, please don't pretend that they aren't all about repetition. That's the greatest lie I've ever seen.

Anyway I didn't make this thread to talk about the worst game I've ever played. I made this thread to talk about the best RPG in the past decade so I won't be making any further comments about how crappy Demon's Souls is.



No, witcher 3 is the most overrated rpg of the paat decade. You seem to be forgetting skyrim, fallout 3, dragon's dogma, and pretty much everything else.

Reread my last reply to you again because you didn't comprehend what I wrote. I didn't say anything about me not replaying any sections or areas of demon's souls. Nothing in any of the souls games was repetive. You probably died many times to the same creatures very early in the game (not learning from mistakes is repetitive), quit and ever since then you hated the game. 

In regards to your topic, I think any of the souls games > The Witcher 3 in terms what RPG is the best in the last decade but of course, we're each entitled to our own opinion.

That title, given all the hype and sales vs how much it paled even compared to one of its own predecessors, Morrowind, firmly goes to Skyrim.

Are we at least in agreement that it's better than wild hunt?
