Should you buy Elden Ring in 2023?

Elden Ring has been out for almost a year now, which is pretty crazy to think about. And the game’s finally on sale. For some reason, it took a while for the game to start being on sale on a lot of digital platforms, although it was on sale in a lot of physical stores. So now that it’s on sale, a lot more people are going to buy the game. And I’m going to try to convince you in this video as to why you should buy the game and for what reasons that the game is so spectacular and why the game won Game of the Year last year. I’m really going to bring in the true factors that make this game as good as it is. So let’s get right into the review. We’re going to be talking about the open world, the combat of the game, as well as the story or lore of the game, because the story isn’t really like a full fleshed out story, more that you have to find the lore and find the story that is actually being explored in the world. And there’s a lot of environmental storytelling within the game. So let’s get right into it.

Firstly, let’s talk about the combat of Elden Ring. Elden Ring’s combat has to be one of the best factors of the game overall. The combat here is absolutely fantastic. Why I personally think that the combat of Elden Ring is so fantastic is due to the versatility of it. There’s so much flexibility to making different setups, classes, different weapons and setups and sets or whatever you can do with the different weapons, armor and whatnot in the game. And blend all of these together to create completely different sets every time you versus a different enemy and really mixing it up on every single playthrough. The combat here is so much fun to play. There’s, of course, parrying, blocking the normal soul stuff. But the way it’s executed here, especially with the new running and jumping as your character can now jump around, it’s a lot more fun to play the game as there’s so much more versatility in how you defeat different enemies. It’s not just this one sided thing that you could do to defeat a boss. There’s so many different opportunities and ways to defeat a singular boss. And there’s so many different examples of this online, as well as this having the horses now that can run and do all these different things really mixes up the gameplay as well. There’s a lot of horse combat in this game and all of it is really, really fun. Some of it, yeah, you can cheese it, though, with the horse as well. But the developers made sure to make the bosses in such a way that you couldn’t just cheese every fight or use your horse in an absolutely abusable way in order to get whatever you want in terms of fighting the boss easily or whatnot. However, the bosses here are absolutely fantastic. I’ve heard that the bosses here aren’t as good as Dark Souls 3 or whatever else the other Souls games. And I haven’t really played those games. I currently own every From Software game. However, I actually haven’t played any of them, except some of Demon’s Souls and a lot of Elden Ring. The reason that is, is because I just don’t have the time investment in order to put into those games. However, I know that the boss designs and the way the bosses fight in the games are so utterly fantastic. And I found that in Elden Ring, this was quite the case. There’s so many mini bosses around the world and some of them are repetitive. Of course, like the cat that you’ll see spinning around that doesn’t really do much and it’s not really that unique. However, the main bosses are absolutely fantastic. There’s so many different ways I sought to fight each boss. And the game really makes proper utilization of its combat and the different things that you can do with the combat in terms of changing different spells, accessories, armor, weapons, whatever else you want to do, just make all these different class setups in order to fight all these bosses. And its versatility in the combat is what really makes the combat fantastic, in my opinion. So if you’re looking for some amazing combat, you’re going to find that right here with Elden Ring. And the versatility and the flexibility of this combat is utterly insane. I don’t think many games out there have such flexibility when it comes to the combat portion of the game.

Oh, man, the open world of Elden Ring is utterly fantastic. It’s one of the most beautiful and realized open worlds I’ve ever seen in gaming next to Red Dead Redemption 2 and Breath of the Wild. I see a lot of people said that it did help revolutionize the open world genre more. I don’t actually agree with that statement, especially because I think Breath of the Wild, when it came out, really revolutionized the concept of open worlds and how they were to be executed. But I do think that Elden Ring took the perfected formula of Breath of the Wild’s open world and then refined it further to make it even more perfect open world. The open world here is absolutely fantastic. I usually just rush into games and just do the main story because I don’t have enough time to do all the side content. I did that even with Red Dead Redemption 2, which is my favorite game of all time. And I know that the open world in Red Dead Redemption 2 is one of the most beautiful open worlds ever. So much detail, so much things to do. And you get so distracted doing all these different activities that are actually not mundane and are really well designed. In Elden Ring, that’s the exact same case. Every activity that you can do, the side missions that you can do in Elden Ring, for example, are really, really fantastic and really drawn out. They’re not just fetch quests or anything that are usually in Ubisoft open worlds, for example. Elden Ring open world understands what it is. It’s a beautiful open world with so much variety in the environment, so much things going on. And the environments themselves also tell a story. And I will talk about that a little bit in the next section as well. And I talk about the story and lore. But the open world here is absolutely fantastic. I spent hours and hours during my playthrough just roaming around on my horse through the open world, looking at all the different scenery, the bosses, all the different enemy types. It really relishes how perfect the open world of Elden Ring is. It’s one of my favorite open worlds ever. And the art style as well is absolutely fantastic. Some may say that it doesn’t look as good as Red Dead Redemption 2, for example, or doesn’t look as good as a certain game or whatever. But Elden Ring’s open world understands what it is. And the art style absolutely enhances this. And it’s one of the most beautiful and most realized open worlds ever made. And I really think that if you enjoy a good open world game, Elden Ring is one place to start and one place you’ll never end with so many opportunities in the open world, so many things to do. And one of the most gorgeous open worlds you can explore. You’ll spend hours and hours roaming just because of how amazing the art style of the game truly is.

Here, I quickly want to touch base with the lore and the story of Elden Ring. A lot of Elden Ring’s story is told through the open world and the atmospheres that the environments tell within the game. The story in Elden Ring, much like other Souls games, isn’t one that is so straightforward. It doesn’t just tell you what the story is. You have to find that story. And in a lot of ways, that’s how it’s so close to Breath of the Wild in the way that
