Completed Dark Souls I-III, Bloodborne, and Sekiro, and now I am lost.

I started this year with a goal to beat the big FromSoftware games , since as far as I am aware, I had never played a souls-like game.

I played in this order :
Dark Souls Remastered
Dark Souls II
Dark Souls III

As to be expected, it was very rough going to start in Dark Souls Remastered, dying countless times in Undead Burg alone. But.. there was something addicting about it. Finally making it just a few more feet than the last attempt. I never even let any of my friends enter my world to help me, which ended up being the case for each game . By the end I was in love: I loved the challenge, the subtle lore, and most of all the interconnected world.

Working full time, It's hard to bring myself to play video games after work because I know I have other things I should be doing, but since I don't want to do those things, I end up just doing nothing lol. Between each game I tried to play something else in order to avoid burnout… but I couldn't, I really was addicted to the nearly Sisyphean ordeal I had begun. The games gave me a direction, and somehow avoided that feeling I always get when trying to play games after work.

And so I continued, and boy was it a rough transition to Dark Souls II. However, by the end, I think I might have… gotten good? Furthermore, DSII definitely has my favorite lore of the FromSoft games I played. Although I have to say that the Tower of Brume DLC was some of the hardest of the whole franchise.

Then I moved onto Bloodborne and the transition was even worse. Up to this point I typically went all in on strength and endurance so not having a shield was a hard change. It also had the hardest boss out of any of the games for me: Orphan of Kos, to which I died over 100 times. I know it's going to be a hot take, but Bloodborne is probably my least favorite of the bunch, though I still think it is very good. I even got the platinum. Playing with friends in the chalice dungeons was pretty fun.

Dark Souls III was very clean. The roll felt incredible and just everything was as it should have been. I didn't die nearly as much in this game as the previous ones, the Sister Friede took me almost as many tries to beat as Orphan of Kos. I didn't like it as much as DSI, but that may have been because of the novelty for my first souls game.

Finally we come to Sekiro. The most difficult transition of all – a fundamentally different game. I did not like it at first, but by the time I beat the guardian ape, I understood how the game worked. Definitely the best combat of any game I've ever played. You feel so good when you beat an enemy, there's nothing like it. I especially loved the aesthetic of the world and the ability to traverse it.

In the end, I think I'd rank them as follows:
DSR > Sekiro > DSIII > DSII > Bloodborne

So here I am, waiting for Demon's Souls Remastered and Elden Ring, not knowing how to fill the void in the interim. I started Salt and Sanctuary, but it hasn't given me that feel yet. Just wanted to share a bit of my journey with my fellow patient gamers.
