SOULSBORNE is a cancerous subgenre name just like metroidvaniaAnonymous03/15/2018 (Thu) 05:05:24No.11422del
I want to kill the faggot who coined this term. Soulsborne is a piece of shit genre since Dark Souls 1,2, and even 3 are EXTREMELY different than Bloodborne. Bloodborne rewards speed and precision, while Dark Souls rewards load out preparations and patience. Sure there are speed demons in Dark Souls, but they're an outlier once you realize how UNGODLY TANKY enemies get past NewGame+. Yes DEX and Endurance builds are a thing, but to get them to be viable you still need lots of planning and scavenging of materials. Additionally the movement speed of the character doesn't improve invincibility frames, in fact the slower you are, the more i-frames you have, specially in Dark Souls 1 where fat rolling is AN EXTREMELY viable tactic.
The games actually punish you for rolling faster when it comes to rolling through attacks. Hell shield bonuses such as the eponymous grass crest shield show that the game was designed around shield usage. This is in stark contrast to Bloodborne where, yes loadouts are a thing, but reaction time and speed always wins the day. It's not like in Dark Souls where you can pop a Havel's/Smough Set and poise through attacks and cheese bosses with strategy. Sorry for the ranting but I just had to get this out of mind this springbreak due to interacting with some retarded relatives.
