To be fair, it's a pretty grindy game!

To be worth it tho means it needs to hold value....

In comparison with games like Monster Hunter, Darks Souls is not grindy. You can finish the games in the series without any grind. On the other hand, you will never finish MH World or Iceborne if you don't grind for better armors or weapons. The time limit on hunts and the damage sponge bosses will keep you from progressing.

Agreed. I only recently played Dark Souls (played several other games in the series), and didn't spend any time grinding, yet managed to be so overlevelled that I had no trouble with any boss other than Kalameet.

I think the only way Dark Souls becomes grindy is if you don't level up effectively.

I guess for me who never played them before, it would be a grind to get good (but that doesn't justify its place on this list)

NotoriousWhiz926d ago (Edited 926d ago )

Exactly. Dark souls isn't about grinding for character progression. It's about grinding to gain the skills needed to win. A grind that can take longer than character progression. But yes, definitely not grinding in the traditional sense.

I am sure you're 100% right. But I personally had to grind DS to get around the fact I suck at them. On bloodborne the amount of times I killed those slug students and farm them for xp was embarrassing.

Don't agree with the DS pick
Destiny 1 had awful storytelling, but the amusement park was Interesting.

Fun/Chore shouldn't really mingle that much tbh

I beat them all with my fists and no hits were taken. What do you mean you don't believe me? I used a guitar hero controller!!!

I used the Jungle Beat Bongos from my Gamecube

All the bosses are only from Dark Souls. No Bloodborne, Sekiro, Elden Ring, or Demon Souls

Greed isn't confusing though, they can't even combine every additional dlc since launch to make it a simplistic experience.
It just makes it easier to ignore honestly.

Yep, right on the money. Keeps people away, more than anything. Every so often, I get the urge to get back into Destiny. Since I absolutely love the gameplay so much. Then I remember why I left. Because Bungie are greedy and don't really care about their playerbase. We need some change in leadership over there, that's for sure.

Like mobile carrier data plans. They confuse the consumer so much that he just says yes.

Well, consumer in this case should say NO.

I wanted to jump in Destiny 2 again before but in entry cost to too high. All expansions + 3 players squad only made it impossible for my group to join.

StoneTitan1d 3h ago

I mean the legacy pack was like 10-20 bucks. Thats three expansions right there with lots of playtime. Its really not high

Literally some of the worst exotic weapons in the game! I feel for new players trying to fathom out what destiny is truly about, if they even can. So glad I'm done with this game....some good times were had but it started going sour even before lightfall dropped and I have no intentions of visiting it again, as neither do my clan friends, and we were all d1 and d2 vets. Shame they couldn't keep our interest and attention to the very end.
