Which is curious indeed because I mean it. I played all Souls games, never finished any of them because I would get exhausted by the “git gud” kind of approach. I finished Nioh 2 and I plan on going on through most new game plus things because I love the game. And I happen to think it’s a lot less unfair than any of the Souls games.
So yeah, it is curious. Maybe there’s something about the movesets, or level layouts, or objetives, or loot that make me prefer the Nioh games. Perhaps it only goes to show how individual perks and preferences can drastically change the perception and/or enjoyment of a game. And I’m fine with that. I won’t ever question why someone would love Souls more than Nioh. It just isn’t my case.
