Yeah its not that hard especially sekiro, lot of inferior beings couldnt handle the reaction time required grandpas. But it is a bit unforgiven with a new game Just played some demon souls on a ps5 and needed shit ton of fire bombs, so had to grind for 20 min

Tbf my dad plays dark souls and beats it quite easily and he's 56. I think they must be almost ancient mummified beings.

No, it's considered "hard" in general. Just because you don't find the game difficult doesn't mean it isn't generally considered a hard game, it's subjective. Yes the difficulty of Dark Souls is overrated by the media but it still spawned an entire genre of difficulty on its own merit.

I've completed Dark Souls and I'm not making things up at all. Difficulty is always subjective but claiming that Dark Souls is not a difficult game at all is false, of course it is difficult, it's a From Software game. You are forced to conform to a punishing and steep learning curve, there is no need to be arrogant about it.

At this point I'm fairly certain you are baiting are you have no idea what you're initial points were trying to prove. What are you failing to understand with my posts? You arrogantly claim "Dark Souls isn't difficult at all" to which that statement is false just because you personally find it easy. So yes, to you it isn't difficult and that is perfectly fine but to the general consensus, it's marketed as one of the hardest games ever made and despite being overrated in its difficulty, it's still difficult in comparison to other mainstream AAA developed games out there and you know it is. So why the arrogance or are you baiting?

Dark Souls is all about knowledge, everything is dodge and roll to attack in the back or sides for every boss almost ever but you have to first learn their patterns and attacks that's the difficult part you don't just go through any of those games killing every boss on the game first try like other shit games out there so stfu.

2021-07-25 05:17
Well yeah. Compared to competitive multiplayer games which have a theoretically infinite difficulty scale, it's nothing. Dark Souls was harder and longer to beat than Assassin's Creed, but it was still beatable, unlike CS. I've only played it for a few dozen hours, whereas I've played CS for a few thousand, and I'm certainly far closer to the skill cap of Dark Souls than I am to CS. Especially in an RPG that allows for levelling and item farming like Dark Souls, you can almost always replace skill with time and grinding. A more skilled player could beat Dark Souls more quickly, but a child could beat it given enough time - and this is the point where a game like this becomes more tedious than difficult. For a similar example, a more skilled player could max a Runescape account more quickly, but a child could beat it given enough time. In both games, therefore, much of the "difficulty" comes from a willingness to endure tedium rather than an actual skill barrier. TL;DR even Valorante child game is harder than Dark Souls

I agree with first paragraph, however second paragraph is rather dumb If you take 1000h to beat a game, you just can't say it is comparable to a person who did the exact same in 100h just because you both beat it. No, it doesn't switch from difficult to tedious because you have to grind: the difficulty at x moment remains, but you had to give x hours to overcome it - however it doesn't change how hard it was at x moment at all, you still get your ass wooped and this is where you evaluate the difficulty of the game. It doesn't make any sense to evaluate the difficulty lower afterwards and retroactively say it is easier. Difficulty = moments where you struggled the most x number of hours you put in

I agree with most of what you're saying, but I think you missed my point. I'm saying that due to the fact that you get stronger as you level up and get items, the game becomes measurably easier. You could theoretically cheese to level 100 in the starter area and beat the game much more easily than somebody who didn't, thus exchanging "difficulty" for time. My point is that it's arbitrary to say that beating a hard boss is more challenging than spending 1000 hours grinding for the best stats. Even though the latter takes less game skill, it takes more patience and is thus arguably more "difficult". I say this only to make the point that when you can spend time getting levels or gear to make the game easier, then the challenge for some people becomes how fast you can beat the boss, for others it becomes with how little gear you can beat the boss, for others it is how long can you grind in advance to make the actual boss fight easier. Since what the challenge actually is won't be the same for each player, you can't really say with certainty what the challenge is and thus determine how "hard" the game is, at least compared to a game where without leveling or loot where there is an easily-defined challenge that is the same for everyone.

Depends on the game really. ds3 is pretty easy in comparison to the other fromsoft games. As a whole though the franchise is obviously harder than the average game. After understanding the mechanics/timings of bosses the games become relatively simple, but what game does that not apply to?
2021-07-25 06:21
Agreed. Game is super slow paced and all the bosses have a pattern made up of barely any moves. We need a game where the AI adapts on the fly and has Alpha Zero level intellect.

Depends on how you define "hard". The game becomes easy when you know the mechanics of mobs and bosses but it is still pretty unforgiving thus making it comparatively difficult to most other video games. That said I believe Dark Souls is a game beatable by almost everyone given enough time.

It is mostly down to learning the enemies attack and move patterns,having the dexterity to dodge at the right time and manage stamina.There are other smaller things ofc but if you learn the system it is mostly down to how fast and precise you are. I'd say that it is definetly more challenging than most games because you mostly have to find out the system yourself and the game only tells you the basics,it doesnt even tell you which direction to go etc.I remember feeling completely lost when I first played DS2

2021-07-25 12:58
Its not the hardest game in existence (some bullet hell games or platformers are way harder), but in comparison to 90% of other games it is harder and it doesnt hold your hand. Enemies will hunt and kill you, traps will kill you, bosses will one-shot you. Hence its reputation of being punishing. But game is quite fair and gives you tools to overcome these obstacles, still you need to be patient and methodical. If you are casual gamer with no intent to learn and practice and just want to breeze through another game in weekend- you will have a hard time. Also the hardest one is the first souls game you play. When you learn mechanics, other games in series (or clones) are way easier.

And i think that you are just a troll or baiter. And even if you are super gamer and this game is really easy for you, well, for most other normal players its quite hard, and for casuals its almost impossible. I lent Bloodborne to few people at work, and not a single one of them finished it, they just returned it next day and said it was too hard and losing stuff at death was frustrating, one said that games should be fun and this was not. I finished all Souls and many clones (Ashen, Surge, Nioh), so maybe im not that bad at games. So go troll somewhere else, you superior gamer.
