>Maybe you are in fact the one who is braindead. At the very least, you seem thickheaded.
>most JRPGs aren't clearable if you're not willing strategize
You said yourself that you can just lower the difficulty and breeze through.
>yes in some that may be surpassable by tons of hours of grinding, but so what?
Grinding is technically a strategy too lol. People just seem to think it's a legit one.
>Even souls games typically seem to have some kind of leveling system that increases your stats, making the game easier for people who are willing to grind.
Generally even beefed up guys will take pretty bad damage if they are not careful and the tools that are at player's disposal since level 1 are pretty much enough to beat the game (DS1). There are people doing DS1 "1" runs (artifically by hacking setting up all stats to 1 and not levelling up), so yeah, RPG system in Souls is really not a priority to win. It is an action game lol. Sure, such build will probably skip a lot of content but skipping content isn't something you should worry about if you played the game a lot.
>You just seem oddly obsessed with the fact that there are people out there who enjoy something you deem to be bad.
It's not like I'm going all over the Internet roasting people who do stupid stuff. In fact, I am mostly unaware of it, probably.
But it is nice to have talks like this once in a while, to see other people's perspective. And honestly what I dislike the most about this talk is not the fact that you like something, is because I cannot learn from you why, pretty much. I have asked you a lot of questions that ask rather about what exactly is so cool about this than what you like in general. I think it is nice to ask yourself those questions once in a while. For example, it is cool if you play these games for cute anime girls or something. 2B is nice and is has a genuinely nice personality for example.
I'm sorry if I hurt you by dissing your tastes or whatever but I think you should take it easy. I am not here to ruin your day, at least I certainly hope so.
