A new Elden Ring survey was conducted to find out what players like and dislike about one of the best RPGs on PC, and the results give a good idea of which character is everyone’s favourite, which of the Elden Ring bosses is the best so what. percentage of people who played Dark Souls beforehand.
Japan’s Weekly Famitsu conducted the fantasy game player preferences survey last month, and the results were published in the most recent issue (via Frontline Japan). Around 1,700 people responded to the survey, so while it’s just for fun, it does give a good idea of what players liked best.
The most popular NPC in the Elden Ring was Ranni the Witch, perhaps unsurprisingly, with boy giant Alexander and werewolf Blaidd trailing a distant second and third. The race for the most popular boss in the Elden Ring was a much closer race, with Starscourge Redahn narrowly ahead of Malenia, with Margit far behind. Caelid was the place that made the biggest impression, although close by were both Limgrave and Leyndell. Apparently the best of the Elden Ring classes is Vagabond, although Samurai came very close due to players associating him with FromSoftware’s latest game, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice.
Exactly 200 other players voted katanas as the best Elden Ring weapon over greatswords, with Bloodhound’s Step giving a landslide victory as Ashes of War favorite and Comet Azur proving to be the best sorcery or enchantment. As expected, the ridiculously useful Mimic Tear was the main Spirit Ash summon.
Perhaps most interesting of all is the revelation that a large number of Elden Rings players haven’t touched a previous FromSoftware game like Bloodborne, Sekiro, or any of the Dark Souls series. Of the 1,700 players surveyed, fewer than half had played Dark Souls 1 or 2, Demon’s Souls, or Sekiro. Just over a thousand said they had played Dark Souls 3 or Bloodborne, still only around 58-60%.
Clearly, the enthusiasm for Elden Ring is proving too irresistible for many players. Check out PCGamesN’s Elden Ring review for why we think the hype is justified.
