Depression, Soulsbornes, Sekiro and Survival

My first experience with a From game occurred during one of the
worst episodes of depression in my life. Stuck in a soul-sapping job and
surrounded by people who constantly made me feel diminished, I had stopped
trying to improve my situation. The only energy I could muster went towards
surviving the day. I’d get home from work, lose myself in a TV show or a game,
and then pass out. Rinse, repeat.
