FromSoftware now seems to think that everyone wants games that are near next to impossible. I didn't mind Dark Souls too much, but Sekiro is just brutal and unfairI wouldn’t say they’re trapped, they’re just catering to their audience, it might not gain them anything to try catching a new audience.
My interest in Demon’s Souls is complicated, while I think it’s fantastic at it’s core, I realized that ”git gud” mostly meant grinding to level up until you essentially unlock easy mode, or find ways to cheese the game. It can be a real time-sinker, I’ve done so many stupid things over and over. A menu option to increase the starting level or lower the XP needed to level up would no doubt make it a better game for me.
I used to love Fromsoftware but their games are just too hard. It's like they've never heard an easy mode.
