God fucking damn it. I listened to the soundtrack for this game because I randomly downloaded it off of a list of best albums of the year, and I thought it was awesome, so I saw the trailer for the actual game and I was totally enthralled by it. So then I go to play the game and you just fucking die over and over again like in Dark Souls, but I have to watch the same fucking opening cut scene over and over again.

I'm playing on hard mode.

This game is worse than dark souls, because there's a lot longer time before you get to save, and you have to battle multiple bosses to progress.

It's very easy that's why I got bored I thought there would be more challenging enemies

I shouldn't be able to pass every boss on my first try

You must be playing on normal. I only said this game is worse than dark souls above because it was kicking my ass relentlessly. I actually find the game to be stunningly beautiful, and interesting in how it combines every sort of camera angle from top down, to side scroller, to 3 dimensional space. The art style and music are really, really gorgeous too.

I will agree with you though, about the way the game seems very easy once you set it to normal difficulty. I couldn't stop dying on hard mode, but when I switched it to normal I beat the first level on the first try. That is definitely different from the difficulty level of dark souls, which didn't have difficulty levels.

Maybe play on normal to pass the beginning bit, then turn it back to hard. It's not like Dark Souls at all lol, there is just no checkpoint there.

I swear, you people treat Dark Souls as more of a medium and less as a game. You should stop. A game being "hard" doesn't make it like Dark Souls. The only Dark Souls thing related is being able to find your dead body and get some exp.

It's not elitist dude it's just that Dark Souls isn't a hard game. You can grind in that and be overleveled then breeze through. In Ninja Gaiden on the hardest difficulty you can grind and level up your weapons as much as you want but if you don't have impeccable timing and a very good understanding of the games mechanics, you're gonna have a really tough time getting through the game.

Don't get me wrong Dark Souls is challenging. It's just that a lot of deaths are more from stupidity than actual difficulty.

Probably because of some of the stuff I mentioned. That's good though. I'll find some video that highlighted it a bit later. I just remember around the time of Dark Souls 2 there was so much shit about it.

Anyone who actually thinks Dark Souls is "hard" really just has a failure to learn how to actually learn and adapt, because once you get the basic formula down, every game is easy bar a few bosses with each installment. But even then that's not the majority of the game.

i think the perception comes more from the period in which the game was released, because triple-A games that required as much of the player's attention as dark souls were running a huge deficit in the last decade

almost every SP campaign of the average video game released in the past ten years is fairly braindead and can be beaten on autopilot, which bred a generation of players who took that for granted

so by the time demon's souls came out, nobody could really get into it at first, because it was a lot more punishing than a lot of other popular games at the time (gta 4, fallout 3, oblivion, fucking CoD), which probably made it seem perhaps more challenging than it really is

also, if you didn't have a background in fighting games, RPGs, other action games like it, or even rhythm games (all of which are relatively niche genres), i can understand why someone may consider it one of the hardest games ever, because if all you've been playing is CoD and elder scrolls (which was true of most people at the time), you're gonna have a hard time with the souls series
