The new update of Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice has started the debate over developer FromSoftware’s games, mainly around the difficulty of this game and whether the studio should add more difficulty levels so more people can simply play.
That hot discussion has made accessibility more casual, so not so skilled new to game players have no much difficulty while playing, especially those who probably are physically disable in some ways. It has also annoyed FromSoftware fans who grumble at the possibility of sacrificing the design vision, thus ruining the sense of satisfactory that comes after successful accomplishment of difficult gaming challenges. But it’s not just Sekiro. Some activities in online game can also be hard, for example Trials in Destiny 2, where you need to win 7 pvp matches in a row to complete the trial.
All the situation even gave birth to a meme.
The person responsible for this is Twitter user Fetusberry, who, in response to a story from PC Gamer about using a mod to beat Sekiro’s final boss, tweeted his opinion, which you see yourself here.
With the references like “I studied the blade” and “I don’t know how much the rest of you know about Japanese culture (I’m an expert),” Fetusberry’s tweet gained numbers. It instantly became a popular thing to quote, finding its text pasted over Metal Gear Solid codec conversations and Devil May Cry 5’s literary bad boy V’s dialogue.
Then the copypasta worked its way into edits of Super Mario 64, The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening, and Animal Crossing.
