    Of which all of DS2 and MGS: Revengeance made it to the PC. And DS2 is a part of the same series as DS3, so I wouldn't necessarily list it separately.

    Haven't played MGS:R (sitting in my Steam library, maybe need to try it some day), but I'm not sure I'd say the DS series has better combat then DD. More challenging, certainly. Tighter, perhaps. But more fun/better? I'm not sure about this. I'd rate them roughly equal.

    Sounds like you need more hand-holding.

    Anyways, extend the time range 1-2 years and you've got stuff like Bayonetta, Vanquish, 40k Space Marine :)D)...

    Also there's that new game "Furi" which I need to try.

    Eh, briefly tried Bayonetta. Wouldn't say it's better then Dragon's Dogma. The latter was again more fun. Perhaps I'm simply not a fan of the genre though.

    I admit I haven't played Nioh or any Monster Hunter games but I disagree with Dark Souls 2 having better combat than DD or N:A. The combat in all 3 games poses roughly the same amount of challenge but DS2's combat system is much too primitive compared to DD or N:A. During the entire game I pretty much used two buttons - light attack and block (since I was playing a shield guy, if I hadn't the block button would have been replaced with the roll button for the same result). There's usually zero incentive to use more than one attack type, no combo attacks, no combat skills (something that DS3 fixed), no proper jump command, most enemies are very very slow and telegraph their attacks for a long time (to compensate, your character is very slow as well). All of this makes killing stuff in that game not as fun. Sure, DS2 wins in terms of enemy variety, but since the core combat system is not very good and the game is no more challenging than N:A or DD on hard difficulty, it's ultimately not as fun, in my opinion.

    I don't want to make judgements about games I haven't played, but I saw some videos of Nioh's combat and most enemies the guy was fighting kept hitting him with the same 2-3 attacks, which looked quite monotonous, so it doesn't seem like it's better than DD or N:A, at least on first glance.

    As for MGR and Bayonetta, both games have great combat and are better than N:A or DD... or 99% of other action games for that matter, that's why I asked to exclude them in my original post.

    Anybody can share endgame save file? That is, with unlocked access to chapters. Recent steam version with DLC. I finished the game late last night while drunk, got a little cavalier and decided to be a "helper".

    Anyway, liked it a lot. Game mechanics, systems, balance etc. are certainly not its strengths. Characters, story, mood, art direction and music are excellent though. Chara design and animations are gorgeous. The way 2B stumbles on obstacles when running or kicks container crates with this high heeled foot of her just melts my heart. Or the way her boots, stockings and dress get dirty in desert areas. Hnnnnggg.

    Appreciated Meta game stuff too. Futility of the experience. I would run this little bitch through sand dunes and ruined apartment block complexes over and over and understand why Nines would follow her (to peek at her pants leotard).
