I'm probably gonna get crucified for this opinion, and rightly so. I did not enjoy Elden Ring.

Some good things:
The graphics are beautiful, and all the areas are also amazing to look at. I love the aspects of the multiplayer, the invasion is so cool, and I like how many armor sets and weapons there are in the game so it feels like you can make your own unique build, and is why I wish fromsoft would make an MMORPG one day. I love the designs of so many of the characters, and I love how there is so much to do. The magic is also just so badass and I wanted to master every single one of them.

Now the bad:

I feel like there is a difference between losing because of skill and losing because the enemy is cheap, giving the illusion of difficulty. There are amazing enemies with genuinely engaging moves that are difficult, but not a cheap shot, like Rennala or Commander Niall (except for commander Niall's servants which are kinda bullshit). Then you have enemies like Godskin Noble and Fire Giant, who genuinely have the most bullshit moves that feel so unfair to play against, and I feel like that's what most of the game consists of. Then you also got the 3rd type, like Morgott and Radahn who are just way too easy.

The plot also doesn't tell you much and it feels like most of it is cryptic, and when it does explain some stuff, at that point you stop giving a shit because it isn't even that entertaining.

The game feels like a grind, so much so I had to use many rune glitches just to level up and gather runes.

In all, it has made me interested in the previous fromsoft games and how they were like, but I would never touch Elden Ring again (until the DLC maybe).

TLDR; I hate losing, fuck Fire giant, and fuck Godskin noble.

This game makes me want to neck myself and I can't stop playing.

Fromsoft needs to be studied in history books

O soulslike perfeito, desde gameplay até lore. quero casar com o Miyazaki.
