A question for all while I have my coffee and think about anything other than the work ahead of me today:
I am someone who desperately wants a high fantasy fun game to play on the Switch. I have tried Dark Souls and found it too difficult, clunky, and for lack of any other way to put it melancholy. Playing it felt like a chore and while I will admit I did not make it very far, I am for better or worse the type of gamer who can’t play the first 5-10-20-whatever hours knowing the game takes off after that. On the other end of the spectrum for me is Diablo which I am not really clicking with because I am just not that interested in a loot shooter and find the gameplay pretty repetitive. It’s a more forgiving level of difficulty which is nice but the challenges feel artificial–adjusting the difficult turns enemies into bullet sponges and the only strategy I can discern is “don’t get mobbed.” In contrast to both of these games, a few years ago I was super in to Monster Hunter and dumped hundreds of hours into MH4U, hit g-rank, and had no problem with basic hook of that game or making sense of the deeper mechanics.
So, in April Dragon’s Dogma is coming to the Switch and given that it is a Capcom game I am curious if it is going to scratch my itch in a manner similar to Monster Hunter or am I going to find it comparable to Dark Souls / Diablo? To you, where does it fall within this arbitrary scale? Is it possible none of these games may be for me and I should just give FFXII another go?
