Elden Ring Does NOT Need An Easy Mode

One thing that we heard a LOT with the Souls games is that there should be an "easy mode", but I think that would completely ruin the souls-like genre. Elden Ring was designed by Hidetaka Miyazaki to specifically require gamers to use trial and error to overcome the difficult enemies. In a lot of ways this is simply a throw back to old school gaming where figuring out patterns was how you beat games.   When it comes to games,  action combat is probably one of my weakest areas,  but I did beat Demon's Souls, Dark Souls and Dark Souls II in the past.
