Fair enough. I wasn't claiming their games are perfect anyway. All I meant was that some perceived flaws are not necessarily negatives, given their style and chosen medium.Not really, I mean I consider myself quite knowledgeable about video games as a medium and I also happen to understand From Software's method of storytelling pretty well. I've greatly enjoyed their work over the past 12 years, but like I said, if you look for flaws or inconsistencies, you will find them. Especially if you consider discrepancies between the narrative and the gameplay.
On this, my perfectionism compels me to disagree. I firmly believe perfection to be achievable. Naturally, increased complexity makes it harder to reach, but not impossible.And it's fine! No work of such complexity is ever perfect.
Case in point: our favorite manga. I genuinely can't think of any flaws in it, not counting trivial and minor things like a panel where Casca lost her shoes for example.
That's definitely true and I admit to sometimes getting bogged down trying to make sense of everything. It's a habit I'm trying to shake off and it used to be much worse.What matters most in a game is that it is fun, and their games are fun. Which is basically my point: sometimes trying to find ways for everything make sense in every regard is just a waste of time for the player.
Now I'm using my new favorite weapon as I barrel through NG+2: the sword of night and flame. It sure freshened things up. I also explored more of the Raya Lucaria academy and was shocked to find an entire section I never visited before.
