12,261DezzyMon 11th Nov 2019 Finished Sekiro. Finally! Easily one of my favourite in the Soulsborne series. I think i'd put it about the same quality as Bloodborne, which is tied second after DS1 for me. So: DS1>Bloodborne=Sekiro>DS3>DS2 (and still not played Demons Souls, waiting for a remaster please). I think this probably had the best gameplay in the series, and it definitely had some of the best bosses. I still do massively prefer the setting for Dark Souls though. While the world of Sekiro was very well designed, it just didn't feel like it had that kind of magic and mystery that Dark Souls 1 especially did. The world was noway near as interconnected as Dark Souls 1, and it had a lot less in terms of secrets to uncover through exploration. In fact this was their first game for a while that had no large secret area you have to discover. Dark Souls 3 had Archdragon Peak. Bloodborne had Cainhurst Castle. Dark Souls 1 had Painted World and Great Hollow/Ash Lake. And I can't remember what Dark Souls 2 had because I've wiped it from my memory. Sekiro had nothing like this. Game of the year so far though. I haven't played RE2 or Death Stranding though, so one of those might usurp it when I do! I'm not sure what else this year might challenge it.
