If you are otherwise interested in Elden Ring don't be afraid to give it a shot. I bounced hard off of a lot of Souls games (including Bloodborne), but this one has been much more forgiving. If a boss is giving me problems I just wander off somewhere else and see more of the world. I almost didn't even bother because I hated playing the other games in the series, but this has been a pleasant surprise.
I do believe you and everyone else who has told me that. (not sarcasm lol)
With that said I'm a huge retrogamer and my backlog is crazy right now. I've been buying new and old games I don't have time to play because I have other games to finish first so Elden Ring really isn't on my radar.
NP - Valkyria Chronicles 1 Switch (first time playing)
Guardians of the galaxy - PS5
Indivisible - switch
Next up - Been collecting the YS games, so I'll be playing a bunch of those...have FF VII Remake, and Ratchet and Clank ps5 on my short list among about 10 other ps4 games and a few switch games.
Wish there were more hours in the day. lol
End rant/ sorry too all who thought I was announcing uber walmart deals.
