Hidetaka Miyazaki says "I absolutely suck at video games," but still got through Elden Ring by using "every scrap of aid that the game offers"

Elden Ring director and FromSoftware boss Hidetaka Miyazaki may be the mastermind behind the studio's brutal action RPGs, but he claims that as far as his own skills go, "I absolutely suck at video games."
