So as not to derail the Elden Ring thread... I don't know why I'm so sensitive to not enjoying sacred cows, I'm not that way anymore with other media nowadays. Maybe because I'm overconsuming a very monolithic slice of games criticism that constantly bangs on about the same bunch of games?

I could see how it would be annoying since the Souls games are critically beloved.

I, on the other hand, agree with this

Hah ha, fair enough. But for simpletons like me, running on a 20 year lag, this game (well the last game at least) is the stuff.

I'm not disagreeing with Dunkey there (after watching the video for 20 seconds), but I assume it glosses over a lot of what makes Horizon better than other open world games (that I've never played and probably will never play).

(I'm getting my terrible opinions out of my system.)

Dunkey's voice is quintessential "guy who is rude to fast food workers"

i wd disagree with the 15 seconds of his premise that i hung in for anyway

i'd happily forever play iterations of games i already like with different stories and locations, innovation's fine but i don't think it matters much to lots of gamers

if your favorite band puts out a 5x LP you're probably overjoyed while the average person isn't interested in hearing the band's 20th through 50th best songs. open world games almost always feel like this unless the gameplay fundamentally makes use of distance and space (e.g. forza horizon). i don't think breath of the wild or elden ring are at all exempt here, theres just a lot of people whose favorite band is zelda or dark souls

my favorite band is marble madness but the debut was too perfect to follow-up so they retired

along the same line of reasoning, botw's world being so sparsely populated is actually an important part of why it was such a hit
