The funny thing about Dark Souls games is that while they're punishing, they're not particularly mechanically demanding. The games are slow and tactical, rewarding forethought and knowledge rather than fast reactions and memorized combos. I think that's one of the reasons they've done so well across the entire spectrum of gamers Still, like any notoriously "hard" game, they tend to draw out a rather obnoxious degree of dick-waving from players, even when said players are laughably bad at videogames.
Every boss you have trouble with is "essy." Every weapon you use is OP. you're not on NG+++ yet? What are you, a fucking caz?
