I think code vein is a soulslike yea.

and I am definitely getting better at the parrying nonsense! it's just kind of awkward controlling it - unlike most parry mechanics where you just have to hit block at the right time, in The Surge 2 you have to be blocking, and flick the right stick towards the direction the attack comes from. And if you mess up it costs a lot of stamina or health.

It feels linked to the phenomenon of non-threatening "soft uwu boys" that the internet keeps being let down by. It's a good thought tho and something that I think would be interesting to look into.
