|LOL! Got pictures of the broken game and controller?
The controller has no visible damage but it just doesn't respond anymore and the game has just a tiny dent at the side (from being thrown against the wall).
|I adore Bloodborne because it's the high-quality Castlevania game we never got, but I've been extremely cautious about getting into the rest of From Software's game library (or any other games resembling it, like Nioh). As I get older I find myself less and less interested in challenging myself with difficult games because life is challenging enough and I don't want my fantasy land to crank up my real-life anxiety. I have also never been that great at video games, admittedly.
It's my personal experience but after i platinumed Bloodborne and then played Dark Souls Remastered, i found the game to be a lot easier because i was adjusted to the pace of Bloodborne wich is much faster and "dodge-heavier" than DS.
Also if any FromSoftware game really feels like a 3D Castlevania it's probably Dark Souls 1 and 3.
Bloodborne is more on the abstract Cosmic Horror side wich isn't really a theme in Castlevania games.
I mean, both Bloodborne and DS are somewhat similar to Castlevania but DS even more so, being founded in "Dark Medieval Fantasy" just like Castlevania is.
But yeah, i agree on what you said. I don't like to play games wich rely too much on being difficult and it almost always gets in the way of simply having a good time with the game.
Sekiro is just a spiral of hard-mini bosses and even harder boss fights.
There is no point in the game where you feel like you really have figured it out or got gud or whatever. It just gets harder and harder.
The last weeks also have been very stressful (at work) so it was also bad timing to start and play Sekiro in this time.
