The renowned difficulty of Dark Souls is a cheap trick; a marketing ploy, really. As others have noted, it makes you "feel like a king" when you beat the game. But any game can be made difficult, or even impossible. It's not what makes the game good.

You want to feel superior, member of an exclusive "hard core" elite, playing a game not accessible to lesser, more "casual" players? That's it, isn't it?

And I think it's a shitty attitude.

Because you can have your game. I don't begrudge you that difficulty and false sense of achievement. You can have it. Why then, do you begrudge me my game? Why, when an easy mode would not prevent you from playing the hard mode?
