      I guess I can kind of see where OP is coming from. The attack patterns of the lobsters are a bit unusual. I think many of the design choices of the game are unique and interesting. From really made a subversion of their own formula, even down to the game having a droning noisy overworld theme. I think even the bitter haters will come to applaud it as a masterpiece 10 years from now.

          literally and unironically based. Schoppy is basically the greatest philosopher as far as I'm concerned. He's the only one that actually tries to say anything meaningful about life, and he gets shit for that, and always has since he was alive. That's why he has like a dozen rants against academia or some shit I think.

          Anyway, haven't gotten to the wittystein but he does interest me with his whole language breakdown thing, I think I might like him, since half of why I like schoppy is that he seemed to truly challenge current contemporary western philosophy by drawing from the east.

          One could argue that's exactly what Nietzsche did too but...I don't know, whenever I read Nietzsche, it just feels like he's so obviously supposed to appeal to a specific type of generic moron that is basic as frick, but wants to seem different or insightful, not truly, just superficially

    Just look up a meta build, optimize mimic tear, use a guide to collect health flash upgrades, use a guide to go to places with easiest enemies, look up a guide on the best weapons and only upgrade that weapon, look up a guide on how to do side quests, look up a guide on how to do the harder end game bosses and you should have a great time playing elden ring

        You literally dont know what the low level areas are, so you can only frustrate yourself by going to wrong area
        The game is optimized for playing meta builds with mimic tear which you'd have hard time figuring out just by playing yourself. The game just doesnt tell you how the stats work, or shit like stagger.
        The game has limited resources for weapon upgrades so you only frick yourself over by using the wrong wep.
        The game has no quest log so you cant do side quests without a guide.

            If you played blind it guarantees a good chance of going to more difficult areas than what can do, and later you go to an area where everything is underleveled and since theres no challenge the game feels like complete waste of time.
            There no story or anything to prop the game up when the challenge isnt there

        The actual way it's designed to be played is blind, so you can explore and be surprised and piece together stuff afterwards, instead of knowing what to expect around every corner because the quests and markers already tell you. All you have to do to enjoy it properly is give up 100% control and accept that you won't find absolutely everything in your playthrough (but what you do find will be that much more meaningful and rewarding than had you followed a wiki.)

    The lack of clear direction and quest markers and areas that aren't immediately clear how to access is partly what makes the open world work. It both forces and rewards you for exploring. If you're just following the path laid out for you on the minimap, then the open world doesn't really matter.

      I played offline so I didn't have any messages and ended up rolling against walls all over the place. Usually they'd be where you would almost subconsciously suspect them to be though, conspicuously flat areas between arches/pillars are probably most common, especially in seeming dead ends or small rooms/corners with nothing else to find. Sometimes you can also hear muffled sounds from enemies shuffling around and such.
