The release of every new challenging FromSoft game never fails to spark heated discussions regarding how people need to stop whining about the game’s unforgiving difficulty and just “Git gud”. Despite the debut of several challenging games in recent memory, with no difficulty options like Hollow Knight or Dead Cells, none of them have managed to ignite the same amount of tension as FromSoft’s titles did among the media. While a similar case can be made for games that try to rip off the Souls formula like Lords Of The Fallen or The Surge, where most people just label them as mediocre Souls-clones and move on. The most probable reason for this widespread hysteria might just be FromSoft’s massive popularity compared to other niche developers, but it definitely does not mean that they should be asked to lose their signature style.
