have you fought the four kings in DS1? Would you consider that fake or real difficulty?

you could always read the article i posted about it lol

like, if a game has an enemy that kills you in one hit, and the only way to avoid it is by some obscure method, that's fake difficulty

it doesn't take skill to dodge an attack, and it doesn't mean you're unskilled if you die a hundred times
it just means you didn't know a piece of useless trivia

it's difficult to define what "real" difficulty is--you just kinda know it when you see it
have you fought the four kings in DS1? Would you consider that fake or real difficulty?
he couldn't get past the tutorial on dark souls one
i killed the asylum demon on my first encounter. /:

I died on my first run through, when he jumped down. Then I learned that I needed to run.

it's not that i "couldn't get past" it, i just refused to play any more than that, because it introduced a number of things that i find more offensive than fun

he just says that to try to piss me off

His eyebrows sparkling, his white beard hangs down to his chest. The thatched mats, spread outside his chise, spread softly, his splendid attos. He polishes, cross-legged, his makiri, with his eyes completely absorbed.

He is Ainu.

The god of Ainu Mosir, Ae-Oine Kamuy, descendant of Okiku-Rumi, He perishes, a living corpse. The summers day, the white sunlight, unabrushed, ends simply through his breath alone.

>Not beating him with the broken sword that deals like 3dmg per hit

I didn't realize you were a C A S U L who doesn't want to spend ten hours on an easy boss fight by inflating the difficulty unnecessarily.

i'm sick of talking about it, to be honest, but whatever

the game encourages you to fuck players over

you can leave misleading messages on the floor, leading people into traps
and you can invade people and steal their shit

i don't find that sort of thing fun
i don't think anyone should--that's just... asshole behavior

Invading undead burg as a fucking dragon at level 5 was some tight ass shit, I've never had that much fun in PVP before

you know if you play as a hollow, you only get fucked over by the game and not other players right. Also once you lvl up your gear and player you can go to certain hotspots and invade other people who are waiting to do pvp.

like, i'm glad that it gives you the option

and aria tells me that the game asks you upfront if you'd rather play offline in bloodborne, and that's a good thing

but my point is, you just shouldn't be able to fuck people over, at all, ever
it's a video game

I use my claws and breathe fire, which are both really weak attacks. I don't care how long you've played, if you can't kill someone like that after the Asylum, then maybe you just need to

Spoiler
keep trying and be patient, you'll learn how to play it and have fun if you work hard.

thats just one of the mechanics that makes Darksouls so enjoyable. You fight hard to clear each area, you level up while getting destroyed by other players so you call in an ally. Then both of you wreck the invaders and kill the area boss. It's great. Fucking people over is okay because people will do it to you in a heart beat.

i mean, if the way you justify getting fucked over is, "you can fuck them over, too!!!" then like...

two wrongs don't make a right, sort of thing

It's just how the game was meant to be played. I could see where you're coming from if you weren't supposed to fuck other players over but in that game, there's a mechanic that encourages you to.
Anyway it's cool that that's the reason you don't want to play it. It's Breyer than saying "I won't play because it's too hard".
