      there's a mod called elden ring reborn that adds a two handed skiro parry and visible posture bars.
      I will probably never play vanilla again, this simple change alone makes the game a lot better. Just needs a bit of difficulty adjustment, because your kit is buffed tremendously by the parry.

      You can tell how much of Sekiro is in ER and how a lot of the bosses seem to be built with design cues that grew out of it

      that just means you enjoy RPG aspects more than action gameplay

        You're moronic, if you wanna play Sekiro, go play Sekiro. Elden Ring is an action-RPG, not a pure action game.

          In terms of pure action mechanics you are correct, they did indeed refine the formula on later games.
          The level design in Demon's souls is flawed but at least its an attempt at crafting a believable set of fantasy worlds with a genuine attempt at worldbuilding (instead of poopy dungus finger incest meme world). I enjoy the way the levels never stay the same from stage to stage aside from the swamp (quite bad I'll give you that)
          The bosses are not designed to give a smooth ramp in challenge, some are quite easy, some a quite hard, it feels natural. Dragon God is shit tho I'll give you that.

          I'll take a flawed, unbalanced game that has traces of brilliance over a game that has nothing to say, takes no risks, was designed by a spread sheet rather than a thinking feeling person

        Lol Black person, don't try to pin this shit on us ds2 fans, you ds3 Black folk are the one who refuse to even play ds1, like the idea of actually having to time your rolls and not just have infinite stamina makes impossible for the ds3 tourists to even last one hour in ds1.

        I remember when the demon souls remake came out and there was this crowd pissing and shitting because it was not ds3-lite. Those are the same guys that will cry because you actually need to jump in Elden ring to evade attacks and can't just smash R1 to victory while panic rolling all the time, the same guys that will piss blood because malenia requires more than two brain cells and will heavily punish R1 spam.

        DS3 tourists is the worst thing to happen to souls.

        that person is right about overleveling. On my first and only playthrough (because i got bored) i hit level 120 without effort. had my 40 in health, endurance, strength, so i started dumping points in a stat i wasnt using because the game was already to easy. I threw them into Arcane, not knowing it was their version of Hollow from ds3. much later rediscovering bleed, (which let me vaporize enemies in ds3), let me mindlessly blender my way through every boss without thinking.

      Every Souls fan I know has said ER was so good it's made it difficult to go back and play the previous titles. They still can and enjoy their time, but there's so much they miss. Their biggest complaint is always build diversity. Each game just has so many clear wins and losses, while ER has so much that's valid especially due to ashes of war and unique weapon arts.

        parrying was bad in dark souls 3 as well
        in all of the games after 1 you have to parry before the enemy has even started the swing, so the shield is on time.
        made worse that after dark souls 1, they started to reduce the tells. making them faster or so slight to be hard to read, so on attacks with variable/unnatural speed/acceleration, the timing to parry is "bespoke" for each enemy which is homosexual.
        dark souls 1 did it right and felt great.

        but im glad its not something you can perceive. more fun for you.

        Not like parrying is required in Elden Ring though. you can recklessly power attack through every boss in the game and their ai and moments are to clunky to respond. but with the shit parrying it does reduce the fun of doing it.

      Yeah it does. Elden ring is nonsensical from start to finish. The charm of the foggy bloom graphics and the dreary dreamlike music wears off and there's nothing going on under the hood. The story just doesn't make sense, they realized they can just string a bunch of themes and words together and a youtuber will just write out their backstory for them. The NPCs feel like cardboard cutouts feeding you bland tasteless bits of nothing. There are very few puzzles, very few interesting battle situations emergent from the level design. Trying to seriously engage the game feels like floating down a lazy river in an inner tube for 100+ hours
      Simply a terrible game

      In the end I enjoyed it enough that I don't regret buying it, but I'm probably never going to bother replaying it, and I don't think I'll pick up the DLC either.

        I like the open world adding scale to the world. Hearing about how glorious Leyndell is and then seeing it really clicks. Overlocking the city and realizing all that scale is really being put to use was worth it.

          I couldn't find the replay value in Elden Ring, honestly. Making a new character then stepping out into Limgrave makes me realize that I probably won't even see a good, proper weapon for a while, even if I tried to speed run the game to get that weapon. Some weapons are also locked behind inaccessible parts of the game, so you're stuck with the same shit weapons for a majority of the game.

    I played souls games since 2013 and never gave a shit about "dood hardcoar muh difficulty lmao"
    For me it was always an action rpg with a simple yet cool combat which felt punchy and satisfying: the clangs of metal felt good, the large weapons felt like massive hunks of stone and steel, you crash into the ground like a fridge if you are overencumbered, every step with a suit of armor on is a hefty stomp accompanied by the sound of plates. Yet there were no forced combos, no shitty turn based combos, no locked animations, no awkward sliding around like in most action games(I didn't play Monster Hunter until World came out, I did play older games later though). And the sheer weapon and equip variety on display with no restrictions, combo whatever you want.
    People jerk off to "muh tough bosses let me solo her XD malenia OnS plin plin plon", but forget about the levels and how the game is also structured around them, with some need to either proceeding somewhat carefully or moving hastefully if you remember the layout already.
    ER made a lot of good steps towards variety and the amount of stuff you can play around, so balance issues were inevitable. Spirit summons are just bafflling, these are just regular summons but they don't increase the health of the boss. Why.

              Oh does he really? I take back it then. Usually I would disagree, but that motherfricker is actually mentally ill. I didn’t visit 2 years and he was still making the same Schizo posting. He legitimately doesn’t understand either that in Zelda games (TOTK and BOTW) there is cross dressing and zesty shit. He doesn’t care it’s

                Which is ironic because I’ve played all of them and TOTK isn’t that good. If you point out the underground area being lacking he will not respond, I’ve noticed this. Guess even he hated the slop that was underground where you just get materials or batteries

      Parries are essentially just attacks. They deal posture damage, which when enough of that is dealt you get a free kill. You're not waiting around to attack, you ARE attacking.

    These games aren't that special and the more they ditch the better pacing and structure that comes with being a linear 20 or so hour adventure the more it becomes obvious.

    Good game, but essentially "Dark Souls of the Wild", so the appeal of normies was almost instantly.
