I can't really get into Dark Souls myself, either. I played Demon's Souls on PS3 quite a bit, but I just got tired of the rhythm towards the mid-end game. DS seems to be very much the same, and seems to be almost exclusively about overcoming enemies and being extremely careful. There doesn't seem to be any roleplaying involved and the story looks to be extremely sparse - just like Demon's Souls.
That gives everything a barren feeling. Sure, the environments look good - but there's minimal interaction beyond breakables. You can find items that don't appear in the world (I prefer visible objects), but you don't really find much that tells a story - or maybe I didn't get far enough.
I don't know, it's just too limited and overly bleak.
