So i'm wrapping up Far Cry 5 (review in the next 24 hours) and I'm looking at my next game. Since i'm mostly new to the PS4 ecosystem I thought about picking up bloodborne, DS1, DS2, and DS3 since those games are part of the gaming zeitgeist. They are known to be tough games. But that got me thinking. When Fifa 17, Fifa 18, and Fifa 19 had a story mode i really wanted to play through them. When i started with 17 the options came up. I chose the default because i know i would never finish the story mode, yet alone score a goal or ever win a match at a harder difficulty.
Since Giantbomb is comprised, more likely than not, of people that would rather platinum Bloodborne than play in a local Fifa 20 tournament my replies are probably skewed. But for me, Bloodborne completion seems possible where as Legendary mode or even winning a match online in Fifa feels impossible (the only reason i bought those 3 fifas was because they were bundled together as the story collection. I have been without fifa for 15 years because i had run up against frustration). So who among us is brave enough to say the Dark Souls series is the easy button and sports games are the actual Dark Souls of videogames?
Next game is Persona 5, which i'm 60% through. Hopefully i can get a review up by August 1.
