I beat Sekiro.. and all I got was a short, From Software-esque ending along with some serious Gaming PTSD. Yep, the game was absolutely brutal. Sekiro may be the toughest game I’ve played in recent memory that makes the Souls series seem like easy mode. Either way, I have no desire to start New Game Plus or 100% all the areas. The game was a fantastic challenge but I’m ready to move on, perhaps to something a bit more relaxing and accessible.
I may sound like I didn’t enjoy Sekiro yet in fact, I enjoyed it immensely due to the gorgeous environment, unique story and fantastic enemy design. I took hundreds of screenshots and looking over them made me realize even more how stunning this game truly is but how taking a breath and enjoying it all is rare when you are being punished by so many enemies. Either way, if you want a challenge and experience a hauntingly beautiful world, Sekiro is waiting to devour your gaming soul..
