        Asset reuse doesn't mean anything to me. Devs have been doing it since the beginning and it would be immensley inefficient to build up new assets when you have perfectly good ones on the same engine.

          some people might complain that games might feel too samey. for example sports game rehash so much they're practically the same game just with stat changes on players.

            Yeah, but I think that's a concern about how it's reused rather than the reuse itself, also sports games by design are probably going to look similar if they're being churned out yearly by the same company.

            PS2? oh you mean the most entertaining game system of all time. why do you think games need to have a GB size in the dozens to constitute quality when the PS2 could pull that off with the same assets in 4.7GBs like you said. don't fool yourself thinking every byte offers content, a modern game is only bloated in size because of incompetent devs. and Elden Ring has streetshitters working on its visuals so you do the math.

              wow this is a stupid comment. data is cheap so noone cares 99% of the time. in contemporary games 95% of data is audio and textures that have ballooned to keep up with better consumer hardware. that actual "game" portion of the data is a compiled binary that even with the worst developers in the world is going to be small. there are plenty of great ways to to make racist comments about indians, this isnt one of them lol

                Maybe your caste system allows you dalits to accept poor service conditions but other people have standards. no one wants to sit through a 34GB update on a single game, much less several of them. saying storage space is cheap is sad whataboutism to excuse your wienerroach race incompetence with tech. just because I have a Ferrari doesn't mean I'm gonna drive it the fastest I can everytime I drive even when it's just to go out and buy groceries.

                And you think that's okay? graphics are so demanding today because models use a high poly count. Audio size is also large because you're forced to get the foreign language dubs instead of having the English be the default and anything else be optional downloadable content, also because most of the time the audio ain't compressed when it's not in use, so it stands at a couple gigas large when it could be much less demanding.

      I haven't completed the game so I didn't get burned out, but exploring a open world full of fromsoft mobs and dungeons and bosses was very fun, my only complaint was it was a bit to vast with open fields (at least the first area) too the point you constantly resort to the janky horse, but you still get tightly designed mini levels/dungeons like Stormviel. Going through nothing but regular Dark Souls levels can get boring without really good level variety, the connectivity of 1 or the adventure like feel of the 2nd game, I started 3 and so far it feels a little uninspired (linear castle level with skeletons just standing around every corner) granted I'm very early and this style level design is better for replaying but I value the first experience with a game and ER switching the formula up really helped this game feel unique IMO
      A lot of the Anti-open world people make some good points but at this point, hating on any and all open worlds is just a memr and half the people are doing it just to fit in. If ER wasn't open world you people would have focused on something else to complain about

      I'm quite sure that Miyazaki said in an interview that the purpose of this DLC is to change the ratio of legacy dungeon-to-open world in favor of having more dungeons and less open world, while still having open world segments.

      So, if the base game is like a 70-30 open world to dungeon ratio, then maybe this will be like... 50-50? The secondary content also seems to have a little more effort put in I think but that's just based on the little info we have before playing the game ourselves.

      its funny people saying open world games are to big and empty with nothing to do and worlds should be smaller but with more unique stuff

      Then elden ring comes out with a giant as frick map, multiple boss reskins and enemy to boss reskins and is praised when the dlc will do the same thing.

      Liars, the lot of you

      Elden Ring has copy paste flaws, even big ones, but don't you dare compare to the average Assasin's Creed game, you really gonna ignore any of the virtues ER has?

      I'm the first to shit on Godefroy or Astel 2, the first to say that caves and catacombs got tiring after like the third one, but ERw ill always be 10 times better than any ubislop.

    I have the impression that the West is losing this same commitment to things.
    Either there's no one really dedicated and passionate in the whole of the West anymore, or corporations for some reason have started to reject the kind of obsessed autist you need for this relationship between author and project.
    I believe it's the second case. The really passionate and highly qualified devs (because they take games seriously) have gradually been replaced by a profile that simply isn't suited to creating anything interesting. This phenomenon isn't exclusive to the West, of course, but I think the West is more "advanced" in this respect.
