Yes, but git gud is a Dark Souls thing. I think maybe the difference is there’s more complexity to manage in Nioh, so it feels like you’re learning more on each failed attempt, which keeps you engaged longer.
In Souls you have fewer tools, so eventually you reach a point where you know exactly what you need to do — you just need to execute (“git gud”) plus other lame bullshit like training yourself not to get greedy right at the end.** You’re still training your brain on the dodge timing and such but that’s it. That can become enraging because you simply want to move on. Whereas in Nioh, you know you can use your tools more effectively next time.
Of course Nioh can reach the same frustration point too eventually.
@KevinC your comment about brain overload is something I’ve discussed before. It’s the same effect as a fighting game or character action game. In all cases, my brain defaults to using the simplest tools while I focus on surviving. Once I can do that automatically, my brain has room to think about doing it stylishly or in a more efficient but complex way.
** It’s funny how in Nioh you sometimes avoid the problem of getting that last hit on the boss because the finishing moves and ki break attacks do so much damage. It’s still burned me many times on difficult fights!
