I don't know what to say really. I know I'm not very far in, maybe 2 hours? I've just in my last session fought the super draugurs, and the first revenant (Where you need to get Atreus to stun it with arrows to kill it). I hear so much from every outlet that this is the GOTG, but I'm not seeing it so far.
Naturally, the aesthetics are stunning. But I guess the actual game hasn't really entranced me the way I expected it to. I had to turn the difficulty down a notch for the super draugur fight, becuase I'm a huge video-game baby. They kill you in 5 hits, and they take 10 to kill, and you're fighting 3 at once. I guess it was hard for me?
I felt this with The Last of Us too. I know that was meant to be this revolutionary new game that defied all expectations, but I hated the stealth, and the gameplay was super reductive. Another GOTG contender that I totally bounced off.
Tell me it gets better, please. Tell me I just need to plow through the opening few areas and it really hooks you, because I'm dying to get deep into a game again
