After seeing Demon/Dark Soul mentioned as a hack and slash here I seriously doubt the intelligence level of this board.


well than maybe you should leave and find a board that caters for people like you(cant say what I really want to) coz If your trying to talk it up to being more than a type of hack and slash you have no idea

"Hack and slash or hack and slay, abbreviated H&S or HnS, refers to a type of gameplay that emphasizes combat. "Hack and slash" was originally used to describe a play style in tabletop role-playing games, carrying over from there to MUDs, MMORPGs, and video games in general. In console- and arcade-style video games, the usage specifically implies a focus on combat with hand-to-hand weapons. In other contexts it is more general, and an archer or unarmed martial artist may participate as fully in a hack and slash game, or be as hack-and-slash oriented as an individual, as an armed melee fighter. Both variations of the term are often written in hyphenated form and with the conjunction contracted, e.g. hack-and-slash, hack 'n' slay." wekipedia

although it has been mentioned in the article that its modernly used to describe 3rd person action games like DMC.

Quick question, do you also classify Legend of Zelda as a Hack n Slash?

Well the concept seems kinda vague, you can hack and slash literally in souls games, but they play more like an rpg game were you are more restricted with stamina, dodging, blocking rather than mindless hack and slash.

also stop being a sheep.

With a little bit of blocking lol but its puzzles are alot more memorable only for the reason I dont usually find them as mind numbingly boring first time through, what do you remember from demon souls when you think of it

That one time I saw the Vanguard and was all like "**** yeah, I've kicked the ass of the Asylum Demon and now you're next!"

Then I died.

Seriously though, I always just call it a Dungeon Crawler. Hack n Slash games I usually associate with faster gameplay and an emphasis on the physical combat's fluidity.

The Souls games are slow and clunky to force you to play your moves better.
