I honestly don't get it, yeah it's a harder game but it's totally skill based, it's totally doable You never die outside of bosses if you get the hang of it Adding easy mode is just shite, we wouldnt have the legacy of souls otherwise If it's too hard don't play the game haha I mean I played ghost of tsushima on max difficulty and it had its moments but with all the tools and parries it was still pretty mellow

It’s not hard to beat any game regardless of what plausible handicap you put on yourself in ANY game , to Me it’s just a matter of how much time and practice it will take to achieve it. From speed run world records To competitive esports The best way we grow has always been through repetition, Gaming is no different when it comes to growth , the more you do something , the better you will become. In my opinion it would be impressive for someone being first to stream and beat a fromsoftware title game the day it’s released, blind play through (not even beta testers) , now that would be a feat.

It is my greatest fear that Elden Ring will not take any lessons of the combat from Sekiro and just go back to the Already-was-getting-old-at-the-end-of-DS1 combat of Dark Souls If its just another 'roll roll roll poke roll roll roll poke poke' I'm gonna be so disappointed

I didn't play Sekiro when it first came out and only just got around to it during this recent Steam sale. I heard plenty of debate over the difficulty when it came out and such, to the point where I was surprised by how Sekiro was not nearly as difficult as journalists made it seem. It's really not that terribly hard. Learn to reflect, which has a much more generous window than parrys do in Dark Souls, and nothing is terribly difficult. There is challenge, of course, and the Demon of Hatred is a fucking stupid boss that doesn't play by the rules of the game it's fucking in, but overall I think the game is easier than Souls. I get the impression that the "journalists" that complained about Sekiro being too hard were the same that couldn't do the simple tutorial jump in Cuphead lmao.

I finished Witcher 3 twice once om Story and the Sword and once on Death March. I can confidently say that DM was so much better, because it actually forced me to practice alchemy (Potions, Bombs ect.) read up on monster weaknesses and bargin in contracts to be able to finance witcher gear upgrades, food and strong alcohol. Oftentimes, "easy" can rob you of a great experience. I never used a potion, provisioned before embarking on a quest, searched for witcher gear or bargined for money on story and the sword, all it took was eating bread in combat and meditating whenever I had had the chance. Ironically, I did a lot of quests that were over my level in DM too, because the game gave me reason to unlock a master armorer and swordsmith early, or pick up the viper school diagrams in White Orchard.

while a agree that beating sekiro is a matter of time and devotion, and not just you are good on it or not i do think that the game is just not something for many people, that want it to be something for them. they just hear how great it is, want to experience that as well, dont get it for free and then stop trying. Just take me as example. The first third person game i played was the witcher (normal mode). After that Dark souls remasterd (dident summon anything for bosses, no players or npcs) that took me 73h. Manus alone was 10 of them (had a 9 points in health, and 50 int mage at this point, mabey not the best idea) After that Sekiro. It wasent unusual for me to be stuck at a boss for 7-9 hours, or for some of them two days. Took me 60h, and i missed alot of stuff (DoH for example) As you can see there beathing these games really is not a matter of skill, if you have enought time, and willpower really anyone can do that. If you are now not good at gaming, like me and lack the time to git gut the game is just not for you. Just like some puzzel games, or escape rooms are nothing for me. Not that i dont like them, but i suck at puzzels, and dont want to invest the time to get good at them. Do i go now and complain how puzzel games need to be ez? No i just know that i am not the target audience and thats it.

I actually agree skill is more about the time you put in, am really new too the souls borne games I played every dark souls and Bloodborne when they were first released and I couldn’t play them for shit, I died too the Taurus demon and couldn’t get any further. As time passed and I got older and more mature and a two years ago I re-bought Bloodborne still couldn’t do it however my mate helped me and sent me guides and walkthroughs, he even got into a party and watched me play them I got better and completed it! The endorphins that flooded my brain were way better than steamy sex however I then bought the remastered for DS I implemented what Bloodborne instilled into me which was attack the butt don’t get greedy and wait for the boss too do it’s move set, off course Bloodborne is more aggressive so I stilled died too the Taurus demon but this time I saw something DS is very slow paced and I found a rhythm (1,2 dash forward) I noticed that the bosses you have too forward roll at an angle and into the boss and I knocked him off the bridge again the endorphins flooded my brain then I got stuck on the dragon’s bridge. I left it for half a year and found a guy on YouTube fightin cowboy who has done a 100% walkthrough with the black knights great sword and I have now completed it and am replaying it as a Spellcaster which is easier than a strength build in terms of fights but in terms of DPS defence pretty hard! However am also playing DS3 and have DS2 recently in my ps library. This whole life story does illustrate it is about the right tools and what advice you’re willing too take and the get gud I realised is no matter what people say about cheesing a boss or legit strats you the one playing it so practice getting good at implementing the chosen method. PS the only easy cheesing method I use is poison arrows on the Anor Londo archers that shit is still way too hard, although I think I found a way, the force miracle and giving those cunts a taste of their own medicine mwhahaha.

why do you, or why does anyone, care if another player chooses to "take the easy way you" and "misses out on accomplishments"? how is that your business or your concern? YOU feel it's the "wrong way to play", therefore you will remove that choice from everyone who plays any "souls like" game.

My thoughts having recently started Sekiro... I don't mind a challenging (mini) boss, or having to hone my skills in order to overcome them. However, one issue I have (and this seems to apply to all From Software games) is the grind required to do this. If you're having trouble with a boss, usually this means dying lots and repeating all the grindy baggage that is associated with the boss (like running back to them, or taking out the grunts around them). I feel you end up spending more time doing all that unrelated legwork than actually spending time fighting the boss and learning how to best them. A few little tweaks, like putting the Idols/bonfires to be just before a tough enemy, would mostly eliminate this issue.

Sekiro combat is hard to learn (it is poorly explained on top of that) but when you do, it becomes much easier then any other souls game. During my first playthrough I was dying constantly and was very frustrated. On my last I did almost flawless run dying once on final boss. Certainly dont try to cheese any boss. Sounds silly but they really teach you how to fight so you can enjoy the game. Try to watch some video on topic of sekiro fights. Key things: 1) Its a rhytm dance - you are either on offense or defense. Dont stay idle so enemy will regain posture. Attack until enemy "hard" deflects you (harder sound). Then you need to defend their combo, after that, go on offense again. When done right it becomes a fluent dance of back and forth blows. 2) Posture - attacking or perfect deflects ads posture damage. If enemy posture recharges too quickly, try to hurt them. Lower the health, lower the posture recharge (including you) You can try stab, dogde and attack, special moves,... 3) On defence dont stay in guard all the time, nor push deflects franticaly. Try to get into rhytm of enemy combo and just deflect blows. Usually if you dont get timing right, you gonna make unperfect guard, rarely you get hurt. 4) Standing in guard regains posture faster. If you disange for some reason, it can be good just to hold guard and let enemy come to you while regaining posture 5) Counter to special attacks are muscle memory. You gonna take a lot of these and its really frustrating but eventually you will read them 6) Perfect block cant break your posture. Even if your bar is full, as long as you block on time, it wont break. Especially with enemies that recharge posture quickly, you often should stay in combat even with full posture bar. There is plenty of special moves and tools in game but thruth be told, I think it is better to just enjoy pure swordplay and dont spoil it by spamming some special move, firecrackers etc. As I said... It was worse "souls game experience" at first, but when you learn the swordplay, it is most satysfying. Played game about 7 times just rushing it in few hours from boss to boss to enjoy "the dance". :) This got bit longer then intended :D

Sekiro... Is probably my least fav FROMsoft game. Still good, still loved playing it... But when you mentioned the variable difficulty of the Souls games (Summoning, leveling, finding different/better gear) That kinda encapsulates why Sekiro is at the bottom of my list. I love doing different builds and weapons and wacky shenanigans with friends in the other games. This one? Get good parrying. And when your just barely able to run the game PC has a delightful tendency to randomly drop frames in a boss fight, killing any good way of getting the timing for parrying down? GLHF. *sigh*. I was really hoping that ninjutsu/ninja tools would have been a viable playstyle but it really isnt. Which is a bummer cause theres a bunch of cool tools but when you can barely use them... Meh. I beat the game once, got the immortal severence ending, and havent felt the urge to go back. Just went and played more Bloodborne (My fav game from FROM).

Demon Souls/Dark Souls may be touted as gaining their popularity through "difficulty", but that was the "main stream" reason. The attraction of dark souls was the worlds themselves, the exploration and the way the creators presented this world to you. No holding your hand and giving you actual consequences when you died. The games weren't incredibly hard, they were just harder than all the EASY games around them. You yourself pointed out how they all had their own ways of allowing you to make the game easier for more players. I disagree about the combat as well. First is the unblockable attacks. Its the EXACT same symbol for each of the 3 attacks. You won't know if you need to Mikiri, jump, or run because the game treats all 3 as the same thing. No to mention you have a useless red symbol that is over your head blocking your view of the enemy making it even harder to respond. You also mentioned the "mechanic" of the timed parry. Then showed the only bosses in the entire game that are truly affected by it. More than half the bosses are completely immune or hopelessly resistant to parry. So you just run away, wait for the one attack that gives you a moment to poke and then run again. Is that really different than other souls games? No, but I'm pointing out that the parry mechanic isn't even a crucial part of the gameplay. Then you have wonky inconsistent hit boxes. If you dodge on certain frames you even have more end lag coming out of your dodge. If the combat is so glorious and just needs "Mastery", then why did you need to cheese any of the bosses in your run? Shouldn't you just be able to beat every boss outright? It's obvious you have a high level of skill with the game. Isn't cheesing any boss in the run "cheating". Shouldn't you feel ashamed and unaccomplished because your no death run had a couple bosses you had to cheat to succeed? The last thing which we semi-agree on is the time it takes to "get gud" at this game. If you want to beat Sekiro you have to play ONLY it from beginning to end to stay adjusted to everything the game wants you to pay attention to. If you have 5 to 10 hours a day you can throw at this game you can keep up your skill level until you finish it. But if you only have 1 or 2 hours a day and maybe you can't play everyday. Then its going to take forever to play this game. Not to mention you can't take breaks from the game and come back to it in a couple weeks because your timing will be gone. So its Sekiro and Sekiro alone until you complete it. Lastly is the "Hard work = feel good". The vast majority of people who play video games play so they can relax, enjoy friends, and generally get away from "hard work". So beating one of the bosses in sekrio feels more like a chore. It fills you more with a "Thank God that's over" than "I did it!". You've made playing these games your job, so you get a sense of pride and accomplishment because playing the game the way you do and beating it, then making videos about it actually puts money in your pocket. Hell I'd probably like Sekiro a little bit more if I was generating revenue for my livelihood when I played it. Or if I had 100s of people cheering me on as I streamed. But we can split hairs about the game all day and probably never agree because of out opinion, feelings, and our subjective issues. But I think there's a glaring fact that really does speak on how good a game Sekrio really is. It separates the hype and the reality. Sekrio sold around 5 million copies but it has around a 20% completion rate. That means that around 4 million of the 5 million that bought it didn't finish it. You and I might disagree on this game but at least we both finished it. What does it say about Sekrio when 4million of the 5 million didn't even think it was worth finishing?

Sekiro looks super great, the animation are also really great and you play a freaking shinobi ninja samurai of death ! i've played the dark souls series, and seriously since people say that sekiro is harder than the dark souls i didn't even tried it a single time and i think i will never try it, if they would've added some way for people like me who want to "play" and not " conquer the world with my superskills gidgudover9000 terminator edition" to enjoy the game, i think i would've given it a try, but you know what we say " the best to win at the game..."

In regards to the easy mode discussion: an artist should never compromise their vision to appeal to the masses. The moment they do, its no longer art, its a product. Its the difference between something really special, and just another soulless bit of media that gets forgotten. If Brian Wilson had compromised, we wouldn't have Pet Sounds. If The Beatles compromised we wouldn't have Revolver. And if Myazaki compromised we wouldn't have any of these games. Surely some people will be put off by the difficulty. And that's fine. Not everything is for you. And you have to accept that. I don't play Disney Princess Flash Games and then complain they aren't trying to appeal to me, a 25 year old guy.

I would be fine if they did something like Cuphead. You could call it practice mode and scale down bosses and let them have less phases. It should be communicated that this is not the intended way to play the game, but that they give you the option to choose for yourself. However a traditional easy mode would be terrible. When you start a game, you have no contest for what "easy" or "hard" actually mean, so most difficult settings are bad on principle. And specificaly, I firmly believe that these games just don't work when you don't have to struggle.

Regarding difficulty, people need to grow the F up. I love Sekiro. I couldn't beat the 2 final bosses. And I accepted that. Sometimes you're just not good enough. Or the effort isn't worth the prize in your opinion. This used to be part of growing up. "When everyone's super, nobody really is". Teaching everyone they're special just makes them entitled in their mediocrity.

Problem on Sekiro is: 1. If i want good combat i play fighting games. There an dont need to kill trash and run befor i have good fight. 2. Different weapons allow different approach to bosses, what all Dark Souls game allow, Sekiro not. You can't change katana for sword/shield or dual swords and try another strategy. If the boss is not good for you and you play style you are fucked.

Seikro easy mode is just like using cheats mods or exploits, if you dont want to do/use it in your game then DONT. If someone wants to let them it's their game they played for. Also adding an "easy" mode isnt just ruining game just letting it be more forgiving. They should only let you play the game in one mode at start of a new campaign so you cant change when your stuck and "easy" doesnt have to actaully be easy. I'm not sure why people are always concerned about how others play

I had the opportunity of playing Nioh 1 and though I couldn't end the game I had a good time. It was extremely difficult. Now I am planning to play Dark souls 3. But in my humble opinion I think there should be two game modes. One is traditional souls like difficulty mode and the other is hard mode which is not neither an easy mode nor a traditional souls like mode. In between if you can.

Another thing I really like about From's souls like games are its death screen (You Died, Death, etc.). It doesnt say "game over" or "failure", it doesnt encourage the player, there are no tips or hints shown to you, its just a cold and abrupt reminder that you died. Then after respawning, you are met with the solace of the bonfire/statue, and that moment is the best time to reflect upon your death.

"Skill is factor of time" COUNTER ARGUMENT: Skill is something you are born with. You either have the passion, drive, and obsession to love something or you don't. Asking someone to obsess about something they are not passionate about, is to watch them slowly burn out and turn into the resentful self they can be. If skill = time, we would all be PhDs, professional athletes, top level esport players, etc. If you look at any ranked level gamers, you would only see top 7-10% sitting in High Elo, while the rest sits in low for years. When you are born talented, it is hard for you to translate such skill to an individual who isn't. It comes naturally to you.

Demon's Souls does have an easy mode. It's called grinding until you're a super high level

Surge was a weird one for me, first playthrough i ignored the gear apart from weapons and struggled whole way through. On second playthrough i got kitted out and just sailed through it. I enjoyed the second playthrough much more, mainly cause i could shout ''how you like me know bitch?'' after beating bosses first try.

ive beaten all the other souls titles. this is the only i haven't beaten the final boss and havent picked it up since release. im glad he brought up time tho. now that i have more time i think i will play the game again and make better decisions with the character, likely making the end boss easier.

I used to think the difficulties of these games was a bit unnecessary until I finally beat the dancer in ds3 for the first time I felt like a god.

The best advice is "git gud". You're meant to keep fighting and dying and getting better until you can kick a boss's ass. A boss that used to kick your ass.

The game(s) are designed to be hard. If people don't like how hard it is, summon. If you don't like to summon and want it to be easy, don't play. It's like wanting all your groceries in the same bag but not wanting it to be heavy.

Sekiro/Dark/DemonSouls/Bloodborne are NOT DIFFICULT. I hate it when people claim they are. These games don't just boost enemy health bar and lower the player's. They simply force the player to be strategic, and no hit-greedy. And also, they force the player to be accountable for their actions. In other games (DMC GOW, I'm looking at you) you can cancel attacks midway, and dodge to your heart's content with no repercussions. From Software's games force you to commit to every move your character makes. They force you to be cerebral, instead of instinctual. In the DMC, GOW and other games like them, the character has a HUGE advantage over every boss/monster/npc. And we've all been spoiled to expect this in every game. In Sekiro/Souls/Bloodborne aren't, everyone's on a level playing field (for the most part, yes, you have maybe 1-3 bosses that are legitimately unfair, but I'm getting to a larger point here). From Software's games aren't hard. They're just fair. Because once you play them enough and you figure out the mechanics of the game. It actually becomes EASY. But not in a boring way. In a way that remains engaging, and challenging, and therefore, dare I say it - FUN.

Sekiro was my first souls game and I fell in love with the series. The Demons Souls remake really was an amazing gift to a gem of a series!

"Gatekeeping" in a game like this isn't elitism, not in the dismissive sense. When you're told to get good it's not a insult, it's literal. If people can't handle being told that this is a challenge when the whole point is it being challenging then they're babies. The only actual reason I can see for being upset about not wanting to get good is if one was mislead and didn't know what they were getting themselves into with a hard game like this, but that's an excuse "journalists" who should be experts on this topic don't get.

You are absolutely right, I loved the feeling of standing toe to toe with someone much stronger than me and not rolling around them constantly and getting a hit in every now and then. Having to be ready for every single attack and counter it perfectly was so thrilling.

Love this video more for the words than for the fact (remarkable as it is) that you managed to complete the game without dying. you gave actually precious life suggestions, starting from "just" a game, and the most important thing you said is that skill is related to time rather than only talent (sorry if I don't remember exactly the words you used, but the idea of time is fundamental!). To me, this is one more proof that videogames are works of art that may convey life lessons, as the ones you pointed out in your speech. I personally found sekiro to be a challenge to try and believe in me, as absurd as it may sound to some, a proving ground. Thanks for your words and, in general, for the sensitivity that gives shape to your contents, I believe it is one of the reasons why you're able to reach to people!! Have a nice day! Hugs

This is what I would call a 'Shadow run'. When the player never dies, Sekiro still die twice. Once in hirata when stabbed by Owl, after which Kuro gives you his blood and says "Loyal Wolf, take my blood and live again.", and a second time when he first draws the mortal blade. Thus, 'Shadows die twice'.

A no death run is very impressive. I like what you said about time being a factor of skill. I had to stop playing this game when I was working all the time because I couldn’t practice like I wanted to. I was able to pick it back up and get the Platinum trophy when I wasn’t working so it definitely can be done.

I just want to say people who are asking for easy mode in a From software game, the point of the game is to be difficult. I’ve beat dark souls 3, bloodborne, and Sekiro and I’m 14. I can get that it feels impossible at some points but it isn’t and you don’t need to practice 24/7 to beat it. I wouldn’t call myself good at soulsborne games but I’ve learned how to beat things after an hour or so and that was it. I’ve actually improved at other games since Sekiro because of the amount of adaptation I did in Sekiro

Personally I feel Sekiro doesn’t “need” an easy mode. It doesn’t owe you anything, and it’s not for everyone. However, I also feel there is nothing to lose by adding an easy mode. Just means more people can enjoy it.

Sekiro was a shame for me. Gave it up. Couldn't be assed with being punished for trying to learn. Dragonrot? Nah. However I got bloodborne after and love it. Whats that about? Also love fallen order which has a similar parry mechanic but bit more lenient. Couldn't learn sekiro and i consider myself a good long time gamer

I beat sekiro while in college. I had so much time and spent countless hours just enjoying and learning the game. I welcomed every challenge, Fought bosses till they no longer scared me. Now, I will be a working adult soon and the thought of not having the time to properly enjoy and learn a game and dear God, getting stuck on a boss...that makes me very anxious. Lol

In my opinion okay, if you want a game like this with difficulty sliders star wars fallen order. Fallen Order is star wars with sekiro combat.

First time i played dark souls. Got stuck on the capra demon. Many attempts later i give up. Thought the game was broken and trash. Went back to the game 4 years later. Actually concentrated on my build. Made it through the entire game and extra content no problems. Thought the game was amazing. Looking back though, a couple of bad build decisions nearly robbed me of a fantastic game experience. My point is... its not always the difficulty of the game which can hold back progress. If you dropped any From Software game because it was too hard, give it another chance. They are gems for an almost unexplainable combination of reasons.

I don't know how many times I've rage quit this game. So many BS deaths lol. But I keep coming back to it because it's satisfying getting good. Completely owning enemies that used to kick your a** is a great feeling. I noticed this most on Genichiro since he was the first hard boss imo. On my second playthrough I one shot him without even dying and needing to rez...compared to the like 20 times I died to him the first time.

“Needs an easy mode” gtfo if your not good enough to being the game by their design don’t play it 😂 it’s designed to be hard Having an easy mode defeats the purpose It’s not meant to target all audiences only those who love a challenge and a good souls like game xD
