I picked up Elden Ring on release day back in February of this year. I was immediately delighted with the open world mechanics and combat system. The game was everything I hoped it would be and more. But, I didn’t get very far in the game.
I was stuck on the introductory boss Margit the Fell Omen for longer than I care to remember. This holdup kept me from enjoying the game. My friends continued and surpassed me and was going crazy now being able to talk about the content of the game with me. I eventually defeated Godrick the Grafted and made my way to the next area of the game. But after that? More than a month I went without even touching the game. The game I had been so hyped for YEARS to play!
This past week forever I picked the game back up. I put in over 24 hours in Elden Ring. I defeated the Queen of the Full Moon. I ventured underground to a whole new world. I slayed a dragon and took his claw for my own flaming great sword.
What this weekend with Elden Ring has told me is the hype didn’t let me down. I love this game so much. There is nothing in it I don’t like. Fromsoft you’ve done it again. 10/10
