When an avid gamer buys and plays the next game, he wants to get as much enjoyment out of the gameplay as possible. However, there are such projects in the gaming industry that can deprive a poor player of a computer through his own fist or even a hammer.
It is extremely difficult to achieve progress and fight bosses in them, but it is they who deliver the largest emotional spectrum and allow the brain to develop an exorbitant amount of adrenaline, and upon completion of the passage – serotonin. This article will focus on such complex, nerve-killing video games.
According to the plot, the main character finds himself in the kingdom of Lordran, all the inhabitants of which have become monsters under the influence of a special curse. The protagonist has a long way to go, defeating a whole horde of aggressive creatures and rekindle the sacred flame to restore the balance between the dark and light sides.
The gameplay is so dreary and complex that if after each defeat the player beats the computer with increasing force as the nerves surrender, then by the end of the day only the system unit will remain intact. Permanent deaths are the basis of the gameplay of the entire franchise. The main character will constantly die, however, with the number of deaths, the game experience increases, and the player involuntarily thinks out new tactics in the convolutions to overcome the accompanying difficulties. Directly an audiovisual interpretation of real life, because everything is exactly the same in it!
Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice
An action-adventure game set in ancient Japan in the 15th century. The story tells about one warlike youngster, alone opposing the whole clan, in order to pull his comrade-in-arms out of captivity, thereby restoring justice and honor.
At the disposal of the gamer is a whole arsenal of various weapons: fatal blades, no less deadly katanas, and even a grappling hook that allows you to attract opponents and travel from one location to another. The combat system is built in such a way that the protagonist is forced to attack more than defend himself. The project requires the player to have a lightning-fast reaction and the highest maneuverability for a successful passage. Before starting the game, it is better to remove flammable objects away from you and put a fire extinguisher nearby …
The game was created by the guys from From Software together with SCE Japan Studio … From Software is the same studio that gave millions of people a nervous breakdown after they got acquainted with Dark Souls. The plot unfolds in the city of Yarname, which is mired in an epidemic.
The central character comes to the province in search of a panacea. In one of the rites, he acquires violent power and begins to hunt for various no less powerful and dangerous creatures. The locations are beautiful, distinctive and detailed in their own way, and the combat system will bring a lot of innovations to the player’s experience: in comparison with similar games in terms of genre and style, the pace of combat in Bloodborne is much more intense. As a result, the complexity increases exponentially, since now the player must rely not only on the learned order of actions in accordance with the game mechanics, but also on the motor skills of their fingers, from which the keyboard and mouse are likely to suffer greatly.
An indie platformer from an independent studio from Canada, in which most of the time an ardent virtual player will be forced to run and shoot. The plot tells about the protagonist, who lost in a bet to the antagonist in the person of a great and terrible demon. Now the main character is in debt… It sounds quite absurd.
In this phantasmagoria, the player will have a long way to fight with an incredible number of different individuals. The number of lives is not limited, but you will have to go to that virtual world so often and start passing the level again that the nerve cells of the poor player are simply annihilated. Bosses always lead a battle tactic that is different from the previous one, unfortunately, it will not work to think over and remember the order of actions of the enemy. Incessant, difficult, but fun battles – this is a synopsis of such an outstanding project.
Kingdome Come: Deliverance
The specificity of this role-playing game is its realistic gameplay. The plot takes the player to the Duchy of Bohemia in 1403 during the internecine wars. The protagonist, being the son of a blacksmith, experiences a loss during an enemy attack: his relatives are brutally killed, and he himself is captured by the usurper. Through the prism of an attempt at retribution, the central character accidentally falls into a conspiracy whose goal is to restore the true king to the throne.
There is no choice of class here, the formation of a character directly depends on the skills being pumped and communication in a variety of dialogues. Just like in RDR 2, the keyboard and mouse knight needs to keep the hero’s needs in mind at all times. The combat system in the game is unprecedentedly complex. Only in Kingdom Come: Deliverance can the protagonist go to prison for a crime he has not committed and play in the same dungeon in the box. Nevertheless, this Czech project provides a unique experience of a difficult life in the Middle Ages, from which it accidentally imbues with horror.
