    Both games require a decent level of skill, button mashing will just get you killed in both. The only button-mashy 3D action games are Musou.

                pro level tetris still requires learning techniques. I'll agree that you're close though.

                Tetris requires you to memorize commonly used patterns to optimise the way you construct. Otherwise it won't be possible to speedrun it.

      Souls games really only require patience, you could get skilled at iframing through attacks & some other techniques but they not learning that won't prevent you from beating them.

      Early Musou games punish you for doing that since the common mooks keep interrupting your combo.
      Dynasty Warriors 3 even recommends you to switch to baby mode on your first playthrough.

    On the surface level, souls games require more deliberate actions from the player.

      More like deliberate inaction. The key distinction of souls games is punishing you for wanting to play a fun action game.

        Deliberate action just means doing things at the right time instead of just whenever with fairly little consequence. It's not like souls games are particularly difficulty once you get over the initial learning curve. It's just a different flavor of action combat, like with Monster Hunter or Dragon's Dogma. Personally I prefer those type of games, but I also enjoyed time with something like Granblue Fantasy Relink.

    When they call action games "button mashers" they are projecting, they don't understand how to do anything so they mash random buttons. In the same way they would for a fighting game.

    One time I was at an arcade and played street fighter 4.

    I mashed the same button over and over, no deviation.

    I defeated every fighter until I got to this guy and he kicked my arse lol

    Would do again

    In Dark Souls you're rolling and attacking with timing while watching the enemy's attack cues, not mashing mindlessly. Pressing buttons at the right time isn't mashing.

    >you aren't allowed to have any kind of power fantasy
    >if you exploit the game's strongest mechanics the fanbase will deride you for it ("you haven't beaten the game!")
    >you will spend most fights watching the boss/enemy having a power fantasy while you helplessly watch

    >if you express boredom or frustration the fanbase will tell you to get good
    >(most games allow you to get good naturally, because they are fun & well balanced)
    It's like they intentionally took all the fun in action games and replaced it with gimmicks masked in over-the-top presentation. I'll give you a trick to cast out the spell from your eyes over From games: go watch a big marquee bossfight or whatever in one of their games, and *turn down the volume to 0* (this is important because part of the bewitchment of these games is the over the top sound effects and music), and just focus on what the *player character* is doing. You'll be amazed out how lame it all is.

    The thing with the action games you mentioned is that most of the time, you CAN play them like a Souls game. You can't do the same if it's the other way around. And yet when a Souls player play these games, they convince themselves that they HAVE to be pressing buttons instead of playing it lame and slow like they usually do. You know why? Because action games let you do that, because you can. You have all these moves and weapons at your disposal at all times, it gets overwhelming to the point where the average person would go "yeah I'm just mashing".

    In comparison, in Souls you're just observing the enemy and pressing either X/O or R1 at the right time because there's nothing else TO do.

    Whenever someone puts down one game over another for such a contradictory reason, it's because they're bad at one game and good at the other, and think nobody will call them out for shitting on it. Only homosexuals do this. Stop watching mainstream normalgay streamers.

    Also LOL at everyone else in this thread actually seething in both directions.
