    Just finished Dark Souls 3 and beat every boss missed a few items but that's all I did for the last couple days I already have more than 24 hours on the game Midir is the hardest boss but definitely my favourite and I do have to say it's still pretty fun playing it with a friend

    I've recently been playing though Castle Crashers Remastered and the combat is great but GOD the hit-stun. If you're in a corner of 5-8 stove faces they can just keep knocking you over and almost instantly kill you without you being able to do much about it. It's more noticeable in Insane mode

    The bit about menial upgrade points (+18 to toaster toasting toast) really resonated with me. It's part of why I can't stand Borderlands at times, as there's only like a handful of meaningful, unique upgrades in the skill tree, and the rest is just stat boosts. That, and the myriad of junk weapons you have to sort through in your menu just to see if you happened upon something marginally better, or mark it to be sold later. Pet peeve I have with games in general is if there's way too much to manage in the menu of either loot, leveling, or quest management. This is just time wasted not playing the actual game. These systems need to be streamlined as much as possible. If there's too much loot management, reduce the amount of loot dropped. If there's too many menial stat boosts in leveling, cut that shit out and reduce the XP gained to match, or have these stats grow automatically. If there's a huge bevy of quests you can have at one time, have a robust sorting system that can break them down by level, region, quest type, main or side, etc., so that I never have to mentally sort them in any sort of way. Another point in the vid, scaling enemies also super irk me. It's really bad in AC Odyssey in particular. I'm playing on literally the lowest difficulty setting possible, as well as making the scaling as lagged as possible, but that only results in literally every enemy in the game always being, at most, 4 levels below your current level. Outside of like the most basic grunts, everything takes way too many hits to kill, and it just ends up feeling unsatisfying, like I'm attacking with Nerf swords. It's especially bad with mercenaries and other high-level enemies, because aside from them having unique perks and doing extra attack damage, they also have a dumptruck-ton of health. Even upgrading your stealth attack to the highest possible level still only takes maybe 1/3-1/2 of their health bar, and then you gotta chip away at the rest. It's not challenging, it's just tedious.

    There's a lot of extra bouncing and snapping in this animation that's really disorienting to me tbh. The character stretching past the stopping point and and then snapping back into a pose feels less like them being expressive and more like a car overcorrecting, it's oddly rigid

    I agree with your video except for one point: Dark Souls does ABSOLUTELY rely on artificial difficulty ie plain tanky enemies (Midir for instance) not to mention that fact that almost anything can one shot you. I feel like if enemies didn't do a bullshit amount of damage then the game would be significantly easier, hence the game having artificial difficulty. Not all the time but it's definitely rooted in the design.

    I recently got dark souls 1 and I feel like my favorite part is the fact that you aren't anything special mechanics-wise. Anything you can do, the enemies can do, usually better. So when you beat even a basic enemy, It's your skill that gets you through.

    I'll personally recommend '' dishonored 1&2 '' available both on steam and epicgamestore, favorite combat game but unfortunately not in 3rd person. I think there is most of thing in this game present in this video and the 2 has a beautiful story, beautiful action game play, beautiful consequence depending on what you do in your walkthrough, whatever I live this game, try it. BTW if you want to, play the 1 first (the story follows 1 to 2 so it's more interesting to know what happened before playing the 2) and that's a French game, I appreciate that

    As RPGs more specifically MMORPGs became more prevalent, a lot of these points are what became commonplace in games(in s negative way) More and more developers just add things to pad the time. 1,000 skill points to unlock each the ads 1 to 2%. Overloading the player with a bunch of useless things on screen. Often times simplified combat to try to appeal to a "wider audience"
