Elden Ring – in case you needed a reminder why it’s up for Game of the Year (pic: Bandai Namco)
Aside from being a runaway sales success, Elden Ring boasts 6 billion views on TikTok, which is more than most of its competitors combined.
Another nice update is the character editor. Finally, the main character looks like a man, not an exhausting dummy after hundreds of crash tests, like in Dark Souls. A pack of new tools has also been added, so creating some truly unique characters will not be difficult. As for the classes, there are 10 of them. You can play as a classic warrior and his counterparts from him and for a pack of various wizards, such as an astrologer or a prophet. Separately, I would like to note the samurai class, which has become such a reference to Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice and pleasantly stands out from other melee players with its deadly katana. This is the next class for which I want to pass Elden Ring again, and you can not even doubt – you will also want to replay this game.
It also seems to us that Elden Ring acts as a social marker. You play it because you are a “real player” and a “real player” because you play Elden Ring. It says something about you as a human being: you like challenges, you don’t give up, you like learning new skills, and you are good at games.
With Elden Ring, that devotion went viral on a level never seen before. The reviews were so good, the game was so good, that the entire core group of From Software fans spread the word. This is not just another From Software game but the culmination of decades of trust built up by a growing fan base that has made these video games an integral part of its way of being.
It is a FromSoft game
As we said before, it is a FromSoft game. This developer doesn’t publish very often, but when they do, they put out some insanely good stuff. Look at Sekiro for example. That came out and was extremely difficult. Most people who did play it, enjoyed it a ton. It got Game of the Year in 2019 and it definitely deserved it.
FromSoft makes quality content instead of putting out a mediocre game every year. If you don’t like Elden Ring, that is your opinion, but there are more people that enjoy it than dislike it. You might not like the challenge it brings, but that does not make it a bad game.
Dark Souls Remastered (
Platform/s: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Microsoft Windows, Nintendo Switch
You can never start a list about Elden Ring if you don’ t have Dark Souls on it. Dark Souls was the very first game of the trilogy and was released back in 2011 but was eventually remastered with improved visuals back in 2018. And what makes this game so special is that it was able to deliver a game that has incredible designs as far as its monsters and creatures are concerned while also providing you with a satisfying experience.
