This is FromSoft's masterpiece. As far as setting and "story" if you can call it that goes, my favorite FromSoft game is still Bloodborne, but Elden Ring is their best "soulsbornering" game so far by a mile. This game is amazing, even tho the PC port is really badly optimized, it can get really bad with framedrops sometimes. Luckily there's a fan made mod that locks the framerate so that wasnt much of a problem for me. It was well worth the wait, and it's up there on my GOTY 2022 list. Realistically tho, it might not win GOTY since these kind of games are too niche to be up there with the likes of say, God of War or Horizon Forbidden West. I highly recommend any FromSoft fan to buy this game.
Now...If only Sony would port Bloodborne to PC so i can 100% it there as well... Do you like money, Sony?

Bought the platinum edition during recent steam winter sales, and if you read my IRL update, you know that I suddenly got plenty of free time. After finishing multiple open world FPS, i dread to play another one (coop games doesnt count).
You need to know abit about predecessor of these game, which called "Dead Island". While it is not a sequel, the developer reuse some of the concept and added more serious story as well as a parkour system. At first, I kinda like the idea because we dont have many first person parkour based game, thus it will be interesting at least to move around. The combat is abit rough, but it will get better as you unlock more skills & get more gears with powerful mods. Enemy are genuinely terrifying, especially if you tackling the game at night, making it a nice risk vs reward gameplay.
Oh boy, I will first say that this is probably my 2nd hated games after Far Cry 5. Not because of boring gameplay, but because of how many outdated / weird design decision this game have. Example, you supposed to move around fast around scavenging loot & gear, but you will have to wasted alot of time watching opening chest or doing freaking slow lockpicking minigames. The parkour system also failed or at least didnt work as I wanted that lead me to deadly fall to death. Sure the story is serious, but there are just too many NPC that just retarded or stupid.
I will personally say that I hated & rage quit alot more than many other games combined. While I made a mistake playing hard at beginning, the issues I have with the game still exist in normal difficulty. Play it only if you a masochist.
