I think I should stop playing souls games. Or any souls-likes for that matter. Because every time I do, I always hear about how this one boss that was extremely difficult in the community (Twin Princes in III, Ebrietas in Bloodborne) And when I get to the area that they're in, & get closer & closer to facing off against them, I begin to legitimately feel unwell. I begin feeling a weight on my back that a person gets when they get stressed. And I don't know what to do about it. Whats worse is that it persists even when I beaten a game. I'm replaying Bloodborne right now & I'm incapable of stepping into Yahar'gul because I'm anxious about facing off against the One Reborn & the possibility of losing to it & being unable to progress. Despite the fact that a large amount of people regard it as an easy boss, AND the fact that I've beaten it on a playthrough where I had no clue what I was doing or how to make a functioning build. It feels really good to get that off my chest, has anybody else been experiencing this? Have you figured out a solution? I would really like to know. Thank you!
Hey, I get stuck on bosses myself, and barely complete any Souls games solo. I've been around since the later days of DkS1, too.
It happens to everyone. Take a break, play something else. Or read a book, watch a show, something. That's what helps me the most.
I'm currently playing through Horizon Zero Dawn and I find myself dreading going into the main story quests, mostly because fighting giant death robots that fire missiles and bullets, armed only with a bow and spear stresses me out. Even the minor robots like Sawtooth and Long legs get to me.
