Dark Souls 9/10
I previously rated this a little lower due to just starting out.
I can't suggest this one unless you have no life or a lot of free time. Maybe if you like inflicting pain on yourself.
I could write a book on my experience with this game. Going through this game reminds me of "What About Bob" and his "Baby Steps" thing. Feel like it's going soooooo slow, but i'm eventually getting somewhere and improving.
I died about 15 times vs those stupid gargoyles. Had to call a NPC.
Yet none of the other bosses so far have taken me more than 4 attempts.
Capra demon.. got him on 2nd try. Hydra was dead the 2nd time I actually got to him. Fell into the deep end. Whoops. Quelaag dead on 2nd try. Gaping Dragon took 3 tries because I was trying to rush.
What's interesting about the Iron Golem is that he killed me 5 times in a row because I didn't know what I was doing. On the final try I didn't use a single HP flask..what the heck. No NPC either.
Senn's Fortress was a MAJOR pain. Right now I'm in Anor Londo going up against those annoying archers. After 4 attempts I gave up and will try later. Some parts seem impossible...
BTW with the shortcut, Blighttown was stupid easy. I did have problems with some flies..ugh, how sad.
I really also need to actually buy arrows. Probably died so many more times than I should have due to not having any.
NOTE: I haven't screamed at the TV yet. Quite impressive. No broken controllers. Despite getting about 90% of the way to the bonfire in Senn's and then dying, I kept at it. It FELT like it just got easier and easier and you learn from your mistakes.
Some things are just too unfair. Like those archers..ugh.
If I get past the bosses in Anor Londo in under 6 tries i'll consider myself pretty OK at this game
It might be the first boss where I might need to rely on real people for help. Maybe not...
It's also ridiculous how long this game seems. 70-100 hours for a game like this is crazy. I'm guessing i'm only halfway through it.
