"You will die over and over again" You just summed up my souslike experience.I have extensively played 1 2 and 3 and a little bit of Elden Ring!
I would highly recommend if you have access to all of the games though to play it in order of Demon Souls -> 1 -> 2 -> 3 and I don't really know if Bloodborne/Elden ring are in the same story line but I would recommend them as well!
Take this as a warning the games are meant to be extremely hard and difficult and you will die over and over again on probably any game in the list, but once you actually accomplish a boss or roadblock that you've been stuck on, and get used to the combat system with parrying/roll dodging it's so satisfying, and also not looking things up on the wiki pages and finding secret items and shortcuts is really cool too!
See, I completely disagree but I think the opinion makes perfect sense. I recently tried whatever the newest Monster Hunter is and got it refunded that evening.The only other series I can think of that has combat as good as the Souls games is the Monster Hunter series.
If you're deep into JRPGs, then I can't imagine you will like Souls game lolDon't have an opinion on them at the moment as I haven't played them but if I ever get
around to playing them I'll let you know what I think of them then.
If I do like them, I probably still won't like them as much as Final Fantasy or Kingdom
Hearts, because I'm more of a Square Enix fan. Final Fantasy 1 on the NES was the first
RPG game ever for a console, so that makes it revolutionary for its time and even today
that's saying something. More than 30 years after that game came out, Square Enix is
still in my opinion one of the kings of making RPG games.
Absolutely love them; Great soundtracks, challenging combat, and the "House of Leaves"-like storytelling approach. Although I'd never recommend them. I'll take YOU DIED every ten minutes over thirty kids screaming racial obscenities in my ear.
