Why people hate DS2?
2021-10-20 14:02
Topics are hidden when running Sport mode.
because it’s not made by the same mastermind of dark souls and dark souls 3 Story is different and you have other builds

Ask the mens complaining about it. I don’t care. It’s more like a spin off or something.

It had some of the best bosses but objectively, the first one would be the best.

No. Only deluded boomers think so. I know you're old-school, so it's normal you think that. Just another nostalgia-bound fan. In reality, all DS1 has over every other game is intricate level design. Quite literally inferior in every other aspect. Clunky, not polished gameplay, too slow, very simplistic enemy and boss moveset, some TERRIBLE boss fights (in fact there are more bad ones than good), very meh soundtrack, worst PvP by far. To be perfectly honest, DS1 is inferior to DS2 in a lot of things. DS3 is way ahead.

"Only deluded boomers think so. I know you're old-school, so it's normal you think that. Just another nostalgia-bound fan." Your opinion is not factual nor objective, friend. I do respect your opinion, for what it's worth.

Everything I stated about DS1 specifically is a fact, not an opinion. You can say you LIKE DS1 more, you can't call a factually very flawed game ''objectively'' the best in the franchise when DS3 is superior in everything but level design.

"Everything I stated about DS1 specifically is a fact, not an opinion." How do you not know the difference between fact and opinion? Sure, you can express it objectively or critically but in no way is it factual by any means. "Objectively" you prefer DS3 to DS1, that is still your opinion to be respected. No need to act like an elitist.

If something can be accurately measured it's a fact. It's a fact that the game is nowhere near as polished as DS3 (older engine, terrible frame drops, less fluid combat, terrible later half of game due to cut development time). Clunkier (4-directional roll, inability to sprint while locked on). Much more limited boss/enemy movesets (most of the beginning bosses have like 3 attacks). There are more bosses that are meh or straight up bad (Asylum Demon, Taurus Demon, Capra Demon, Gaping Dragon, Ceaseless Discharge, Centipede, Butterfly, ***Bed of Chaos*** ((worst boss in the whole franchise)), Gwyndolin). Soundtrack I honestly don't even remember other than Firelink and Gwyn, lmao. Completely incomparable to DS3's masterpieces. And PvP? There's not a single person with a brain that wouldn't admit DS1 had THE WORST PvP of them all. Due to all of this, DS1 being the best is... just no.

The logic of what is deemed factual is moot but I never claimed DS1 was the best, I stated if you want to talk "objectively", critically DS1 was seen as the better game. Others also preferring DS1 to DS3 isn't "going against fact" because there is no fact, it's an elitist opinion because you do not know how to express your views subjectively. I agree to a lot of what you stated about the bosses, that isn't the problem I'm having with this discussion. I remember you tried to claim the same about DOOM 2016 and Eternal, you have a habit of being way too objective in your opinions... EDIT: General corrections and additions.

''The logic of what is deemed factual is moot but I never claimed DS1 was the best, I stated if you want to talk "objectively", critically DS1 was seen as the better game. '' You never said ''critically'', you just went on and said it's objectively the best. But anyway, what's that based on? The largest platform with reviews - Steam - has 94% rating with 188.4k people voted, while DS1 is 90% rating with 50.3k people voted. DS3 is the most liked and critically acclaimed. DS1 is mostly loved by the people who started Souls with it and simply can't let go of the nostalgia. Which is fine until it messes with their view on the game's strengths and weaknesses.

DS1 ok... DS3 noway... the mechanics here are fully polished and the game is a masterpiece if u consider Ashes of Ariandel + Ringed City. I feel like DS2 there's too much fan content without any connection with the source of the game like Darklurker boss.

1) it is, it's just mechanically worse 2) you're braindead, paths to bosses like both smelter demons, alonne, darklurker and most imporantly lud and zallen are litteraly the most annoying and shittiest paths ever filled with a bunch of same enemies that have retarded abilities, the guy who designed those area levels should be publicly castrated and if you like those paths then you should be castrated as well

1) it has superior mechanics. ds2 quite literally has the most replay value out of all souls games as well as the biggest room for experimenting with builds. it might not matter to low iq casuals who just tank everything with a shield like you though 2) i dont see the problem? are u too bad to take on a group of enemies? and since u seem to be the type of a guy who dies 50 times per area, the game lets u despawn the enemies if u kill them enough times.

1) it has shitty hitbox and the movement is goofy af 2) of course you would know about something like that, you're the type of loser who spends 5 hours to clear the whole area just so he could kill the boss lmao

1) no, ds1's and ds3's and bloodborne's hitboxes are mileeeeeeeees better than ds2's 2) no shit I struggle to reach some boss like blue smelter demon whose area is straight up filled with a bunch of fucks who fire shit at you and slow you down but at the end of the day I still do it and when I reach the boss the boss itself is easy as fuck, "educated on the subject unlike you" by educated you mean you had to constantly google shit since you can't do it on ur own?

I tried playing dark souls 3 but it forced me to play on 60 fps and game looks kinda laggy, what do I do to fix it ?
2021-10-20 15:06
Not quite sure. To me the most amazing thing about DS1 was how the world was one big connected whole (except for Anor Londo I think). That was really lacking in DS2 and also in DS3 to some extent.

Sorry but thats such a booring answer. Its the same copy pasted answer everyone give about ds1.. I for example love things like, my buddy being a dick and starting to hit the blacksmith so that he bacame mad at me all the time so I couldnt use him anymore for upgrades and such. And my buddy felt so guilty about it so he searched online for an answer and it turns out you can find someone and do something to atone for your sins in the game and make him happy again. I love things like that, those kind of things makes a game deep.

what a weird reply. Everyone says it because it made ds1 really memorable and immersive and it's one of the best things about the game. I liked being able to make unique weapons from the souls of bosses that was really cool.

Nobody hates it, it's just regarded as the weakest in the series by most fans and critics.
2021-10-20 16:38
I dont agree with it, it was my first souls game and I loved it. Got me to play every single one after that. I think people were complaining because they had lots of 1vX situations and they didnt know how to deal with it. But as the saying goes.. Git gud.

2021-10-20 21:22
the level design in ds2 is lacking except the DLCs. without the DLCs the game would have been panned by the community. people praise it for it's flexible builds however there are so many weapons that are just clones of each other and the power stance mechanic was garbage. also the paths to the Darklurker boss and Lud and Zallen are enough to make you break your PC/console
