I do. You should not have to check the internet for anything. The game should explain itself. And I understand what they were trying to do with the "social" component, but I want a game to explain itself in single player mode, I don't want to rely on other people helping me out with in-game hints. I played the game offline. And if that's an option, it should be a working option.

That's ridiculous. Playing a game is nothing to be proud of. We are all losers for wasting our precious time playing games. You need to admit this to yourself. I am a gameplaying loser. On the other hand, go ahead and feel like a king. I don't mind the game giving you that kick. What I mind is that you don't want me to be able to enjoy the game in my own lazy way. I have said this before, and I will say it again: An easy mode does not prevent you from playing the hard mode. (No, really, it doesn't.)

If you say so. I'm just dumb then. It's my opininon that games should be exactly as hard or as easy as you want them to be. And dumb people should be able to play too.

Life is a learning experience. And it actually teaches you usefull stuff. I don't want to spend my gameplaying time learning how to play the game. And Dark souls is not nothing without it. I love the design and atmosphere of the game, and would happily play it for that alone. I hate "repeat until you get it right" gameplay.

Neither do I. At least not until the unbeatable boss, where you can't avoid dying and waking up in a cell. Many games play this type of trick on you, and I usually don't mind. But I felt that Dark Souls broke its own rules at that point, and that's when I gave up on the game. And I felt kind of stupid for not giving up earlier.
