The thing about DS3 was not that it was a good survival horror game. To the contrary it's an absolutely atrocious survival horror game.snekadid said:I played DS3 with a friend and its pretty bad, mostly boring but this is purely subjective. By the time we got to the planet we wanted to quit but we kept going just to spite the game and say we finished the slog.
The fun of DS3 was crafting the most ridiculously overpowered weapons imaginable.
It out Borderlanded Borderlands.
Running around with an functionally unlimited clip chain gun with underslung rocket launcher, is the kind of mindless fun that I enjoyed greatly.
And the fact that the game tries to scare you, while your one shotting everything with a double barreled stasis sniper rifle just reinforces that you're getting one over the developers and is a far more gratifying power fantasy than most games out there.
