The latest release of Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice has reignited the debate on developing FromSoftware's games primarily around their legendary difficulties and whether the studio has to offer alternative difficulty settings so that more players can experience the game firsthand.
Along the way, the fierce discussion has coincided with the availability of a more relaxed and less-dedicated gaming market with accessibility for all players, especially those with physical disabilities. It has also ranked FromSoftware fans who are gazing at the idea that the studio would sacrifice its design vision and thereby undermine the sense of accomplishment that comes from overcoming difficult game challenges.
I'm not here to fix it. I'm here to face the very good meme it has created, one that even Sonic the Hedgehog is on.
The person responsible for kicking this whole thing is Twitter user Fetusberry, who in response to a story from PC Gamer about using a courage to beat Sekiro & # 39; s final boss said the following:
You not only cheated the game but yourself.
You didn't grow.
You did not & # 39;
You took a shortcut and achieved nothing.
You saw a hollow victory.
Nothing was risky and nothing was achieved.
It's boring that you don't know the difference. https://t.co/upkhLSNQNO

With shades of "I studied the magazine" and "I don't know how much the rest of you know about Japanese culture (I'm an expert)," Fetusberry's tweet went off . It quickly became a widespread copypasta that found its text inserted over Metal Gear Solid codec conversations and Devil May Cry 5 s literary boy's dialogue . Tweeted even racked up thousands of retweets and more than 20,000 similar.
Then copypasta became more elaborate that went into the edits of Super Mario 64 Legend of Zelda : Link's Awakening and Animal Crossing .
Of course, sensing a Nintendo bias to the spread memo came Sonic the Hedgehog (or rather his Twitter account) himself, while the copypasta was still warm.
If you are wondering if Fetusberry was serious about this whole thing or if he tweeted it ironically, here's his answer to his exploding popularity:
Oh, I haven't said it yet
So " you cheated "is how I actually feel PLUS melodrama
I went for the over-the-top and I got it
Initially, I suffered a bit
But I & # 39; m over it now and i enjoy tweets meme status
So if you see one out there, show me!

I'm out to spend the rest of my evening bashing my head against Demon of Hatred in Sekiro and risking it all. Wish me luck.
