I haven't gone near elden, but i picked up Kingdom Come: Deliverance on the recent steam sale. It has its rough edges, but i am enjoying it a lot more than I thought i would. It's immersive, strong character development. Well researched for historical setting and minutia.

Another big miss in the game design is that as you progress through the game the amount you level up in a given area isn't even close to on par for what's required to move to the next area. You end up having to spend hours and hours defeating the same enemies over and over and over again to gain runes to get your character leveled up enough to effectively fight the run-of-the-mill enemies (let alone bosses) in the next more difficult area. I guess that's part of the "charm" of From Software games (from what I'm seeing in the forums) but it just seems like crappy design to me.

Until recently, I hadn't really spent much time watching any kind of video tutorials or video content on the game. I've just started recently as I've gotten to more spots that are difficult to get through (or even know where to go next). I've definitely come to appreciate the complexity of the world design but I hadn't appreciated the breadth of weapons and move sets until I started watching some other people play. There's a truly insane number of weapons and different moves for those weapons. I guess it probably picks up a lot from past From Software games but it's still impressive.

I've become Elden Lord. It was a good game. I see why many people are very into it but it was still more tedious than fun for me. Apparently there are 5 different endings you can unlock on successive playthroughs but I'm probably just going to put it down. All the time spent re-playing areas because you got killed or ambushed by some low level enemies is very frustrating and doesn't really have much of a point other than wasting your time. One of the best things is the community, lots of forums and the in-game online portions are very cool and make the game much better. I'd recommend it with the caveats above.

This sums it up pretty well. Lotta inside joke/meme content here but it gives you the feel.

If anyone plans to start playing and have not played a game made by From Software, post here for tips. There's is so much stuff that you will miss, important stuff, if you just dive right in. Some of it you will figure out later, someone will just be missed for good. I'll try to give you a head start. I probably would've saved 100 hrs of gameplay (most of that 100 hrs was just frustration) with maybe a dozen good beginner tips before I started.
