I don't feel like it did a lot the best in Soulsborne. It had atmosphere, but Dark Souls 1 and Bloodborne had better. I-frames are super important for dodge-builds, so less reliance on it means more reliance on shields and spacing. I don't care for magic builds, so I can't argue anything about it.
It most definitely had the best music, though. Good god.
