Trumps Dark Souls in every way. Doesn't frontload itself with confusing RPG mechanics and remains a more accessible slimmer experience because of it. Contains a magical sense of adventure that few games can capture and has a haunting tone that isn't suffocating but looms over the player akin to Resident Evil 4. It has fantastic boss battles and an incredible combat system that draws the player in with seemingly easy mechanics that infact require careful footwork and a trained eye to master. It is one of the most satisfying games for improvement. As the player slowly becomes more confident and becomes more aggressive and eventually by the finale you are a stoic hunter that parries and dodges effortlessly and capitalises on every miss of an enemy with devestating combos learned over the course of the game. Finally the lore constantly ambushes the player with deep story threads that are rabbit holes of character biographies and make for satisfying post game content as you understand each character before chaining it all together with a 30 minute complete lore video on Youtube.
