enry: Given how many PC games don't let you do that, that's pretty impressive.


It was worse on Elden Ring than it is for most games. I liked Elden Ring a lot - and beat it - but quitting out was a weirdly long process.

To quit you had to:
1. Hit escape to bring up the menu
2. Choose the right tab (System, I think)
3. Hit the Quit button
4. Confirm the choice
5. Go through a splash screen
6. When that's done and the title menu comes up again hit any key to continue
7. Scroll down the main menu
8. Choose the quit out of the game option
9. Wait for like 10 seconds or so while you still hear the game music as the game is closing
10. You're now free to roam about the desktop!

Gods forbid you have to pay for a game with over 100 hours of excellent hand-crafted content.


I paid for Stardew Valley

in all seriousness, this is one of the bigger quality of life fixes that's plagued every FROMSOFT game. Glad it got done.

Ok, that's rougher than usual.  Still, whoever decided "quit game" means "go to splash screen" deserves a kick in the jimmies.
