So I'm not going to scream insults like the other guys, because I find that unhelpful and generally rude. But I disagree. In your scenario, there would be an optimal way to play. A best weapon, a best shield, a best armor set, etc. What that would mean is that there is also a best strategy, and it would destroy the meta. Everyone would only use the best things because, assuming equal skill levels among players, anything else would just be detrimental. What you want is something that would be amazing, but is impossible to balance, and would eventually make things uninteresting.
But even in solo games, the builds give variety and replay value. I thought a luck build in DS3 was going to suck. Turns out it was some of the most fun I've had in the game because I had to adapt to my new limitations. I couldn't just use my big sword anymore. I had to focus on fast attacks that built up status ailments. The way I played the game changed. The way I saw the game changed. And that's what made it so interesting.
But play the game the way you want to. Seriously, they're meant to be fun. Some people get way to intense. If you're not having fun, then why play the game? Sekiro took me months to beat because it was more frustrating then fun, even though it got better with time. I've been super into Breath of the Wild lately, but The Reignited Trilogy was probably the most fun I've had in years. I very much recommend those whenever your tired of demon killing.
