Me, i didnt want it to end. I loved how Ashina Castle completely changed on the third visit there, to find stronger enemies everywhere. I completely explored every place and wished there was more to do.
I found the difficulty very manageable. There was one point in the game, basically from the first Genichiro fight to the Great Ape fight, where I thought I was "stuck". I just couldn't beat these guys, and the Snake Eyes mini-bosses.
But once I got through them I coasted through the rest.
My one complaint is the re-use of enemies. 3 ogres?! really? and headless and schichmen warriors. They're all easy so why not just create other kinds? ah well, thats only minor.
Im doing NG+ now and enjoying it a lot, as I feel ive mastered the combat.
Yeah, I find that for some people the combat in these games just sort of clicks for them, where it really never does for me. Years ago I was running a SL80 dex build on the initial Dark Souls and was able to play it really well, but that was the last time I really felt in sync with the games. I tend to struggle through them, and - Sekiro excepting just due to progression system - tend to have to grind levels to get strong enough to muddle through the games. Which is fine, I love the Soulsborne games more that any other games over the past 15 years, I just admittedly am not that good at them.
When I hit a wall in Sekiro I took like a week off and went back to Dark Souls 3 and finished up an abandoned playthrough, so that was fun. Now I've booted up the Dark Souls remaster and am playing through it. Probably will do another run of Bloodborne as well after that.
