I used to be like you. I dallied with when it finally hit European shores, but life got in the way and I dropped it faster than a New Year’s resolution. I then spent several years shuddering at the ‘Prepare to Die’ slogan associated with and vowed never to touch a From Software title unless it looked like Jennifer Lawrence in a kitten costume. But changed everything: it had a Gothic, vaguely -esque aesthetic that I adored – and it was being billed as a big PlayStation 4 exclusive. It was a game that, simply, I couldn’t ignore anymore.

Coming from Demon's Souls the game really isn't too hard. You die a lot, but it isn't as punishing or is unfair as a lot of other more poorly designed games. You can look at losing all of your echoes as losing considerable progress or you can see each death as personal experience you gain an a player. There are games that are just incredibly unfair and tedious and designed in such a way that greatly exacerbate their difficulty by making you lose 'valuable progress'.

The Souls games were never like that. Because aside from the bosses you kill any progress you make isn't nearly as meaningful. Sure, the souls or echoes you collect make your journey easier, but not as easy gaining player experience.

What I'm saying essentially is that, if you come into the series new, then the game isn't for everyone, but if you stick with it to the end there is something unmistakably brilliant.

I found Nioh to be much more tolerable than anything Souls ever threw at me tbh. Souls tends to be a teensy bit of a waiting game, at least when you're not 100% sure about where to expect encounters on your earlier playthroughs, while Nioh allows me to go complete nuts and be super aggressive once I've gotten back into that one (played the demo until I was around lvl 40 because I had so much fun with that one's much quicker combat)
Nioh also isn't anywhere near as stiff as Souls, which is another issue I have with those games. And again, I feel like the payoff is much more immediate in Nioh as well. I'm not one of those hyperactive kiddos who need the screen to flash and have a dozen trophies shoved up their are every 5 minutes to be able to keep paying attention to videogame at all, not after a little over a decade with stuff like Monster Hunter and a bunch of older western RPGs which I've played to death and back, but it can get a little grating when you're mostly just...wandering in these kinda games. If I played Souls more it wouldn't be for the gameplay, but it doesn't offer much else beyond that for me, personally, either. It's just a matter of preferences I guess.

I hope I'm not just rambling at this point, but that's how it is lol

@doctommaso it's more about doing stuff over and over because someone throws themselves at your throat every two steps. Like, it takes a decent amount of trial and error to find your way around certain areas of the souls games (but maybe that's just me) while I can just sit back and "let stuff happen" in Witcher 3. It's an entirely different kind of beast, in my opinion, and one I can get into much easier because I get that story "payoff" much, much quicker than in something that tries to tell its story/its world's history mostly through its environments.
