      And now it's dead because souls-tards aren't interested by mechs. Was it worth it homosexuals?

          All sales came because of elden meme's popularity.
          Game's short, easy and forgettable.
          PVP is completely dead, as in, lower numbers than obscure fighting games.

            That's what happens when you release MP for a short SP game half a year after release.
            And i would still bet it's doing pretty well in MP activity compared to older AC titles.

            You're lucky you got PvP in the first place and 6 was purely SP focused since the beginning.

                We get it you're a massive contrarian over 6 becoming popular and mad people want more AC now, surly you can cope with a different mech game since you seem to think the series is dead.

              It's an amalgam of lot of mechanics from soulborne and Sekiro. Not an AC game.

          So, you're a bandwagon jumping newbie who never played an AC game and who thinks the abomination we got with hard-lock, dodge, estus flasks, no turn rate, no inertia, mechs moving like a fricking dark souls human, with stagger and ricochet, with casualized melee is representative of the entire license?

      They unjumped with AC6.

        Anonymous

        AC6 mostly the same issues late souls game had but applied to the AC formula instead. It traded build variety, player expression and varied level design for boss-heavy "dodge at the right time" action. Also the suits felt like they weren't designed with the mix and match mechanic so even the visual aspect of the customization was meh, which parallels ER's lackluster fashion. It was a great mecha game and I had a good time with it, it just lost a lot of the specific appeal older AC games have.

          I've not played a mecha game since The Crescent Hawk's Inception when I was a kid, so I can't compare it to older AC games. But I've played plenty of soulslikes, and aside from the boss fights this feels nothing like them.
          If I wanted to play an older AC on a modern console, which one should I start with?

            All AC games are good. Start with the trilogy on PS1.
            No the gameplay isn't shit you can rebind buttons, put camera and movements on the directional stick and face buttons. I had trouble moving the camera up and down with the normal settings but once changed it's fine, and way more attractive and endearing than letting the hard-lock do the job in AC6.

              Oldest console I got is the 360. Any recs for that or more modern Xboxes? I'll grab it before the 360 store closes.

                aside from the 5th gen games that aren't really worth playing with their dead multiplayer, they're the only ones you can play without older hardware or emulators

          Also I heard Ogura heavily pressured the team into making it accessible to further increase the range of people it could lure into playing AC so that's why you're sleeping between bosses in autopilot mode killing mts by barely touching buttons.
          Seriously half the motherfrickers in the game die just by being touched by a slight breeze.

    DaS2. They thought they could make everything from scratch without another studio handholding them.
    They couldn't.
    Since then everything has been tried and tested one or two games in advance and most things are reused. Something having widereaching consequences on the game if it would need to be cut for time is not tolerated, so everything feels like it has been shuffled together from a bargain bin.

    Between Bloodborne and DS3
    One could even argue the Artorias of the Abyss DLC.
    I just replayed it today and it's not very good, mostly poor levels and carried by cool (albeit easy to today's standards) bosses, like The Ring Shitty.

    I sincerely believe that DS2 has the best DLC of all the games.

      Brother if you're mad at getting ganked against PvE players just play in the arena or go back to Dark Souls 2. The best PvP is in Elden Ring, you just have to not be a complete moron.

    I was gonna say they were one of the most consistent game studios, but I remembered Armored Core V and Déraciné came out after Demon’s Souls. Also that Steel Battalion game, remember that? Hope you didn’t, it was horrible.
