Why is Valheim so popular? People have asked. Well, how we feel about games is always highly subjective and here's my own initial thoughts on it after many hours lost inside its world.

My question is, are the core gameplay systems slick in a fun way?

Minecraft is fun for example, I have played countless hours of it, but I always burn out on it because the core gameplay of combat and such is janky and unsatisfying.

The combat in Valheim is quite hard, far more interesting than Minecraft could ever be. Combat is a big part of Valheim and is “souls-like”. It’s challenging for sure and will certainly keep you busy.

I burned out long ago on Minecraft but love Valheim.

Good to hear! Now I can curl up and dream about being able to get parts for a computer that can play it lol
