The first impression is oftentimes the most important. While a game may sometimes have only one chance to wow you with its premise and presentation, many will at least give the first level a shot. But not every game is interested in gently guiding the player along – some will use their opening levels to crush your spirit immediately. Let’s take a look at 13 such opening levels in video games and what made them so rough.
The Village of Cursed Blossoms – Nioh 2
The first main story mission seems innocent enough with a few Gaki to eliminate but eventually, a massive boss-like Gozuki appears. You could deal with it or run away…the latter is pretty much needed since it slaughters you almost instantly. Things only get slightly easier from there as you venture to the Yokai realm with all of its hazards, face off against various other Yokai and humans, and finally battle a Mezuki (which is far from a pushover).
