    just like the original game, it'll take years to actually come out

    As long as they are not doing crunch I'm fine, games are art and good art takes a while. I loved cup head and that took a while to come out, i can keep waiting.

    Honestly, as someone who's yet to play this and any of the SoulsBornekiro games, are the difficulty of these games overhyped by the same game journalists who are like that one Polygon reviewer who couldn't even play DOOM 2016 with a basic understanding of the controls? Like, when I'm thinking "hard" games, I'm thinking stuff like the NES Ninja Gaiden, Double Dragon 3 on NES, the klassic Mortal Kombats, any fighting game with a final boss that's been diagnosed with SNK Boss Syndrome, you know, that kind of thing.

    To an extent, yeah it is exaggerated. There are plenty of crutches that new players can use to make the games easier, and some of them you'll want to keep using even as you get better. Hell, dodge roll alone can be used to beat the games at soul level 1, so certainly anybody can beat them with the opportunity to stop and grind levels anywhere in the world they choose. Shields and/or magic are a new player's best friend. I'd say Dark Souls 1 > 3 > 2 in terms of difficulty, although whichever you play first will undoubtedly be most difficult for you. Each game has maybe 3-4 TRULY difficult bosses like Cuphead, and about half of them are optional.

    Demon's Souls I'd put at a notch harder than DS1, and Bloodborne a notch easier. Sekiro OTOH...that I'd say lives up to the difficulty hype without question. It takes away so many of the options and the crutches that the Souls games give you and forces you to play it one specific way. Luckily parry timing isn't as hard to nail down as it is in Soulsborne games, but mastering it is a must.

    Sekiro is the one you maybe want to think REALLY carefully about before diving into. It is actually Ninja Gaiden hard.

    Cyberpunk 2077: Finally, a worthy opponent. Our battle will be legendary.

    Cuphead hard. That's all i can really say. If you've played the older contras its a jog in the park but it's still somewhat difficult. not close to ninja gaiden hard.

    I'll wait if it means getting DLC on time, they won't pull off a Cyberpunk on us for just some DLC

    lets just say don't play this game with a brand new controller because you'll end up snapping it in half or throwing it against a wall :P
