Elden Ring player defeats abusive father by learning his attack patterns

While many people have been enjoying the new hit game, Elden Ring, one player in particular has found the battles in game surprisingly useful in real life. 16-year-old, Daniel Miller, has been using the pattern recognition skills required to defeat the bosses in game as training for when his father returns home after a long, stressful day at work. He's found that he has been avoiding his father's attacks more frequently after sinking over 20 hours in the game. Daniel says that he sees no end in sight for the improvement of his newfound evasive skills, as he plays more of the game. Nor is there for his father's abusive behaviour.
